Fodor's Review

One of the top hotels on the island, this elegant resort sits on a spectacular promontory in the hotel zone with a series of terraces spilling down the cliffs below, allowing guests to access the sunbathing decks and swimming in the Atlantic. The plush guest quarters, freshly renovated in 2012, have an understated modern look; they include marble baths with twin sinks, and most of the rooms have large balconies that take in sweeping views of the Atlantic, the Bay of Funchal,

or the property's inviting gardens. The restaurant, Il Gallo d'Oro, is the only Michelin star dining in Madeira.
