Our opinion.

A perfect hotel for those looking for a holiday in a peaceful environment or for those who make a tour at Madeira and want to spend a couple of nights in this region.
Hotel rates are acceptable for the quality being offered.
The rooms are very clean and offer a great sea view from a private balcony.
There is no sign of flies or mosquitos, only the sound of the waves and a few birds and if you're lucky you may spot a whale in the distance.
We Enjoyed our evenings at Hotel Alpino Atlantico, sipping on a glass of Madeira wine while watching the the ocean under a full moon.


For those who make a round trip on Madeira, we recommend to select bed and breakfast.
There a some good restaurants on walking distance, such as fish restaurant "Atlantis" (that belongs to the same Hotel group). The restaurant is at sea level. The menu offers a lot of choise, including regional dishes and special menus for children. The food is great, prices are acceptable and its location close to the sea adds to the recommendation.
Another fine restaurant is the Cerbejaria Alemã on the corner of the main street.
