Situated on the southwest coast of Madeira Island, close to a sandy beach and the marina, is the Calheta Beach Hotel. This 4-star family-friendly hotel is located just 25 minutes from the city of Funchal, rests just metres from a sandy beach, and is packed full of facilities and activities to satisfy every type of guest.

Three is the magic number in this fabulous hotel. There are three bars including a beach bar and lounge bar, all serving a range of local and international drinks, and three restaurants (one buffet restaurant and two à la carte restaurants), serving quality international cuisine in picturesque settings. There is an outdoor pool, with a separate children's section, served by one of the bars and surrounded by a lovely terrace, bedecked with sunbeds and enjoying stunning views. The hotel also benefits from an additional indoor pool and a fabulous onsite spa offering a range of relaxing treatments to leave you feeling pampered. The rooms themselves are equally luxurious with bright furnishings and standout feature walls. Rooms come with satellite TV, hairdryers, phone and minibar as well as ensuit bathrooms, and also enjoy beautiful mountain or sea views which can be savoured from private balconies.

Beach to the front of you, mountains to the back, Calheta Beach has a truly idyllic location. With tranquil settings, you can enjoy the perfect relaxing break, but if you fancy a change of scenery the neighbouring marina offers a range of restaurants and bars. For even more of a buzz, hop on a 25-minute shuttle bus into Funchal for a day of shopping or a livelier evening scene.
