The Villa Opuntia offers its guests a friendly and appealing atmosphere from the beginning and you will feel quickly at home. The complex and the garden are beautiful and well maintained. The staff is really helpful and friendly with all questions. Breakfast is served at your desired time on the balcony and is lovingly arranged. The hotel is a perfect base for exploring the island with a rental car. We would not hesitate to come back to this stunning island and the Villa Opuntia. read hotel review

    Breakfast offered, we stayed at the booking the continental option is selected. The breakfast is adequate, long-term a bit monotonous, although the some variations or extras a bit scattered, for example, additional fruit from their own garden, a even baked cakes etc.. Through their own kitchen at the apartment you can get the whole still add something. We have for example eggs and bacon even fried. Also its own juice is highly recommended. For us the breakfast was so plentiful, that we quite frankly of which also stullen for traveling, could ☺ Peculiarity: the breakfast is served in the morning in the apartment or on the own sun terrace! Typical especially the breads and some types of sausage.

    The pool is small, but adequate for the hotel. It is maintained daily and is nicely decorated. Around there are several beach chairs, also a sunbathing lawn with further furniture. Everything is in a good condition. For the pool will be additional towels. The gym offers some basic unit and helps against the first urlaubsspeck approach. Also, there is a sauna available, after notification preheated is. A kids club or activities there is naturally not and this is also good sunday The hotel is also suitable for children, ideal for couples (also older) without children, the peace and a certain comfort without disco and ballaballa to enjoy want. Books of various types in a very large number of (!) In a specially arranged library with private reading area.

    Our unit was very large, tastefully decorated, with fresh-cut flowers and sunny. There is a fireplace and a modern tv with several german channels. The living room has a sofa and chairs, a dining table, a hatch window through to the fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher). Everything made a neat impression. In the bedroom there is a sufficiently large closet for longer stays. A castle for the safe one receives at the reception. The mattresses are firm; in our opinion, would a mattress the comfort immeasurably improve. The pillows were small and flat (local?) , but there are additional in the closet. The bathroom was also very clean and spacious. It is also heat, which Madeira but rarely is necessary. At toiletries there is to soap and, of course, towels, toilet paper, but no shampoo or shower gel.

    Suitable for german-speaking guests, because the operators are also german and the other staff spoke a lot. The welcome is warm, practical family and this way attracts you through the whole stay. One felt very welcome and, for example, at the tour desk provide support and advice.

    It is a quiet residential area. Several restaurants and bars are nearby and within walking distance, as well as shops for example, a small spar market. There is a beach on the whole island not. If you are in the atlantic would like to bathe, you should one of the swimming pools use, one of them there are in the proximity. Madeira is not necessarily suitable for a beach holiday. A bus stop is about 10 minutes away. With buses you can get to Madeira very good way. Ideal is a private car, which was in front of the hotel for free parking. Thus one is in about 3 minutes on the inselautobahn and comes from the resort actually everywhere quite well. The airfield is 10 kilometer away, you can hear it and sees also no aircraft normally.
