Fodor's Expert Review Savoy Hotel Calheta Beach

Av. D. Manuel I, Calheta, Madeira, 9370-133, Portugal

Part of the Savoy group, this four-star, all-inclusive hotel is right on the seafront with its own palm-studded grounds between the beach and Calheta's marina. The rooms are not huge, but all have balconies and the best ones peer out over the Atlantic. There are two restaurants, including one buffet and one à la carte, and three bars, one of which is poolside. A spa on-site focuses on treatments using marine algae, which is famed for its healing properties. A gym will appeal to those wanting to keep their beach bodies in check.
