The hotel Orca Praia is a bit outside Funchal, but with the bus very good to reach (bus stop directly before the hotel). We were very satisfied with the room and the service. The breakfast is fine (with a few flaws the coffee), but for a longer stay somewhat monotonously. Excursions were offered by the respective travel agencies (in our case Thomas Cook) offered. Usually you will pick you up directly at the hotel. Absolutely recommendable are the all-day roundtrip (westtour, osttour), especially, if you don't know the island, and the guided levada walks. Highly recommended is also a visit ... to the neighboring place camara de lobos, the hotel is within walking distance of the promenade. There were many german guests. The in general the staff spoke good english and sometimes also german and was very friendly and helpful. read hotel review

The stay was very pleasant, the food was good (a bit more choice of fruit would be better.) the lighting in the bath and rooms could be better. Unfortunately wi-fi only against fee! The same with the fridge. Otherwise we were very content, it was a cozy nice holiday. read hotel review

Very nice hotel with a fantastic location on the hill, and a great view of the atlantic ocean. We had a large room (junior suite) with a huge, the sea-facing balcony. Really nice! The food was absolutely alright (so varied, that we always found something), the staff efficient and very friendly and the whole hotel and pool area was very clean. We honestly surprised, that the hotel only 3 stars! The bus binding is very good, easy access to Funchal. But a rental car is recommended, as you so much more independent and the hotel was a little out of ... the way. But we knew that, for this reason we have also decided for half board and had no problems. read hotel review

On the Hotel Orca Praia lot has already been written, it is everything and it is a very good, well-run three star hotel with a good price-performance ratio. But we would a room in the 10. floor discourage, if you are not hikers and want to get up early and must. Around 6.30 starts the chairs back on a room in the above restaurant at, just as then at night until about 23 hours to clean. We had room 1004, here i would certainly advise against, since on the small balcony, the path to the beach and to the ... other rooms. One is always on display. We had the front desk Hotel Orca Praia specially written for a quiet room, this letter was unfortunately ignored. The check-in we wanted another room, but the hotel was, as so often, fully booked. Otherwise, we were very pleased with everything, the food, the staff, etc., everything very clean, all very friendly and helpful, and would not hesitate to stay in the Hotel Orca Praia, but with regard to another floor, to check in. A reference! We stayed with HolidayCheck booked and went on ' better services' because we a larger balcony and a quiet room. The chairs back is well in 10. floor known. The booking confirmation was not good, that it is the small balcony would be, only when the ticket was sent. We ask ourselves so, where is the 'better value'!? So beware of the reservations! Our summer holiday in Italy we had in the travel agency around the corner booked! read hotel review

If one is the first time the entrance looks and before the transfer bus to the various 4-5 hotels had one is sceptical to say the least, if the Hotel Orca Praia route. But this first - modest impression is very quickly revised. The entire hotel shows from the inside very maintained and gives the first impression lies. We had booked a normal room and were amazed not bad, that without a junior suite was provided. The space was only from the view topped. Nice is one of the sea not to stay at this hotel. We had booked half ... board and were very happy. Three stars was worth it and more had we not expected. The staff was always accomodating and the the cleanliness of the hotel, as also of the dinner room spotless. As we had good weather, we spent the evenings on the balcony and have therefore only 2 times briefly in the rather sober bar too much. Good, that we this hotel a 2. book times. read hotel review

We stayed in the hotel was very beautiful and pleasant holiday -1 week with a rental car. The view of the ocean and the walk from the current beginning of the promenade until camara de lobos is beautiful, with the possibilities, at the port somewhat to drink. We, 77 years, these walks and also the 'rise' of the hotel always a fitness workout terms. We loved the hotel and the island. The hotel exceeded the 3 - star rating in the name in every way. read hotel review

    Direct access to the beach, which means you can hear the bed the atlantic waves and no traffic noise. The shopping possibilities in the area are rather rare. A rental car for a few days is to be recommended, the wonderful island to explore. Excursions to Funchal ( about 6 kilometer), with the hotel shuttle are taken. After camara de lobos there are 2 kilometer on the waterfront. A nice evening stroll.

    Here i prefer the hotel the first time a star from. I can much understand, everything is more expensive, but not the breakfast save. Issue scrambled eggs, if it was. A sticky, overcooked, tasteless mass. Boiled eggs, so hard, that someone hit could. Joy came on, when it finally fried eggs were. Canned fruit. In december there was pineapple in the offer. They were fresh in the morning. Bread, rolls like cardboard. Greasy sausage in the oil roasted and again the best... The bacon solid black burned on the plate put. The best is the coffee. A liquid, which one does not stand. Sorry, but after 4 days one then finally on the city or covers evening before with having dog treats a. Dinner i can't review. Due to some complaints 2008 i have never used it.

    The only geröllstrand is under the hotel. With surf is it dangerous. If you don't fit or even impeded, with the steep descent problems. In the proximity there is absolutely nothing. One tippelt good 2 miles to the next kioks. Bus stop directly before the door and please sooner rather be there. The giroticket in the city charge, otherwise it will be hard. Bus or car you, the hotel is rich 5 miles away from Funchal. The pool bar only in good weather on. Who missed breakfast, the hungers a way. There is a bar in the hotel. Never used them. Spa are also available. For those who need it, just ask at the reception or in the elevator look.

    The hotel is located directly on the sea, if you opened the balcony door, you could hear the sound of the ocean. A view as from the catalog. It was outside of Funchal, so was the use of the hotelbusses after Funchal or own drive with bus necessary, but the connection was very good. Above the hotel was the bus stop, and easy to reach. Otherwise there was nothing else in the area, very quiet.

The room had a very nice size (circa 35 square meter) in the you to 2. good can hang out. I liked the large shower with a glass division very good. Toilet, bidet and sink were always clean. It was cleaned every day, we had nothing to complain about. Only a clothes rack for bedsheets or briefly durchgewaschene funktionsshirts we would have liked to have had. Tv was great - including remote control, only 3 german programs, but who wants on holiday tv?

Daily a nice, extensive breakfast buffet with coffee, tea, bread/rolls, fruit, cereals, jam, sausage and cheese as well as british (sausages, egg, bacon, beans). In the evening large, delicious salad buffet with various dressing, 2 meat and 2 fish dishes, various side dishes, soups and a dessert buffet, the my projects the healthy diet a bit difficult. Nevertheless i could my weight! The kitchen style was between portuguese and german laid out, i found the prices for the drinks ok!

Over the beach promenade above and you are at the beach.

    I personally thought the location on the steep coast simply genial! Families with small children may have trouble, because the path to the beach and pool over steps and a path down leads, it is only a very small pool available. The handicapped or not quite physically abled seniors, the hillside and the stages on a permanent basis have difficulty. It was alright for us - we are avid hikers and healthy - we are like a little on the promenade in the direction of the Funchal or after camara do lobos (circa 30 minutes) walked. The airport was by car in about 15-20 minutes, excursions in maximally one hour. We are a couple of times Funchal drive, to the Forum Madeira (shopping center) about 5 minutes, to the port/ altstadtgebiet maximum 15 minutes with much traffic. Bus stop directly at the hotel, there is also a hotel shuttle after Funchal, which we did not use both.

    Ideally located in the formosa bay, nestled between Funchal and lobos. For lobos at the foot of the largest cliff of europe (cabo girao) it went either on again fixed beach promenade or the upper street in 45 minutes walk. ( for me one of the malerichsten and gorgeous places with fishing port, 2 things churches nosa senhora coucciao and Fatima, shops including a small supermarket pingo doce, winery, dining etc.). From there steep climb up to the restaurant teleferico with panorama view possible. After Funchal it is in the other direction first on the promenade with a redirection interruption, a short kiesstrecke, through a pedestrian underpass A small supermarket and uphill to a large shopping mall (forum) overall approximately 45 minutes. Continue on the road to Funchal centrum Another hour. Lobos and Funchal can but also against about 2 €with the public bus (stop before the hotel) or with the anmeldepflichtigen, free shuttle bus from the hotel to Funchal in 15 minutes. From the lowest floor of the hotel 61 steps down and then a about 100 meters long, steep, paved path down to the hotel pool with snack bar. From there one comes into a few steps with the little promenade to the sea. (gravel/sand beach). Of course this path must also again up to be taken!
