    Very steep road to hotel, no restaurants nearby but there is kitchen you can use - just do shopping before (there are no shops nearby).

    Good breakfast, nice view from terrace. Nice common areas - sofas, billard...

    Access road, distance to nearest restaurant.

    The location was excellent, but the approach road VERY steep and narrow. The house was in need of a little attention but was comfortable and welcoming. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking was a few spaces at the house, ok but small. Our room was very small but acceptable. Bed very firm. Very nice fire in lounge area in the evening. Nearest restaurant was a 5 minute drive away, adjacent to a BP fuel station, but this was superb. Bakery the other direction 3 minutes, but only snacks available, but cakes again superb. Hotel had a small pool which looked nice but not yet opened. Extremely good breakfast.

    The house is at a hill but the view was completely destructed from our room, and little outside common are space. Breakfast is in one room with all people at one table. No view, quite dark, No view, noisy, not very intimate. Pool very small. Too expensive for what it is.

    Clean. Breakfast good. Check-in and management efficient and fast.

    Calm place with ocean view

    Getting to Colina da Fajã is a little bit of an adventure, first of all because not all navigation systems seem to be able to direct you to the address. I used two different ones and always as led to the village Fajã da Ovelha which does actually sound right. After a bit one realizes though that the B&B is elsewhere on the map, higher up. So coming from Funchal and Prazeres don't follow the last road sign down into Fajã da Ovelha but keep going until you see a sign on the left pointing down a small alley to the B&B, right in front of a bar and mini market. Furthermore be prepared for a steep road down and try to postpone worrying about how to ever get back up. There is parking in front of the house and I think it is advisable to turn the car around when you get there should there be space enough. Silicone seams in the bathroom could be renewed since it has accumulated a lot of unpleasant mold. Hair dryer could be in the room. I only got one upon request. Upon reception I had the feeling the host was in a rush and wanted me off his back rather quickly. Not the best start but overall the hosts are still really nice.

    The ocean view from the balcony, the terrace and the small but great infinity pool is beautiful. One of the features I liked most about the house are the various shared seating areas both outside and inside where one can plan the next trip or simply read a book. The rooms are spacious with wooden floor panels and mine had a door to the balcony which also had access to the pool. The only disadvantage in that part of the house is that you have to go a couple of meters for Internet. Breakfast had everything but hot milk for a nice galão. I have had better on the island but it was still good. All in all I would recommend the place to people who prefer tranquility over the proximity to a town with opportunities for. shopping and partying.

    Nothing bad - just a very steep drive down and back up but well worth the destination!

    The hostess was amazing. We were not used to steep hills and she even drove the car back up to the main road! The view was outstanding. The infinity pool, seating areas, fresh breakfast - perfect. Levada walk right outside our door! We walked up the road to the top of the street and made reservtions for dinner at the snack bar. May have been the first to ever do so but mama made us a lovely chicken dinner for 8 euros per person.
