The Monte Mar Palace stands on Madeira’s rugged north coast, which is much less busy and developed than the rest of the island. So if peace, quiet, a secluded location and stunning views are what you’re looking for, this is the hotel for you: looking out across the Atlantic you really feel like you’re on the edge of the world. A short walk uphill brings you into Ponta Delgada, which has a small marina, but for a choice of bars, shops and restaurants take the free courtesy bus to Sao Vicente, about eight kilometres away.
The hotel was excellent in every way. The staff very friendly, efficient and courteous, the accommodation excellent and the restaurant brilliant.
