Orca Praia Hotel

Funchal, Madeira
TripAdvisor rating:TripAdvisor Rating Based on 435 reviews

Package Holiday (7 nights)

Madeira is truly beautiful, whichever vantage point you're seeing it from. But, we have to admit that seeing it from the beautiful surroundings of a cliff side hotel is one of the best ways to appreciate it.

The Orca Praia Hotel is set into a cliff side, close to the capital, Funchal, overlooking a shingle beach and the sea beyond. The view is wonderful. And you can enjoy it from every single room, making the Orca Praia a very romantic holiday destination.

Spectacular hillside location and mesmerising views at the Orca Praia Hotel, Funchal

Of course, one of the other benefits of this astonishing setting is the peace and quiet. Out here on the cliff side, the sound of the sea is your constant companion. Its gentle 'thrumming' along the shore should help you drift off to sleep each night.

If you can tear yourself away from the view, you'll find so much to see and do in Funchal. Despite the solitude of the Orca Praia Hotel, the capital city is only a couple of miles away. And, helpfully, the hotel provides a free bus service.

It's certainly worth the trip. Funchal could be regarded as Madeira's cultural heart as well as its capital. Its historic monuments are a big attraction, with the cathedral drawing visitors from all over the island. There are great eating places to discover too and wonderful opportunities to shop.

Or, for a more laidback day, you could luxuriate on the sun terraces by the pool, overlooking the sea. How does that sound? Days in at the Orca Praia Hotel are always going to be something special.

And so are the rooms. Each is wonderfully spacious and comes with a balcony or terrace for making the most of the views. And yes, you can certainly see the sea from every room. All rooms are en suite and feature cable TV, telephone, hairdryer and radio. You may also hire a minibar or safe for a small fee.

Adding even more reasons to stay at the hotel, why not spend an afternoon with a long, cool drink at the Piano Bar – the view and the music combine to wonderful effect. There is also a pool bar and of course, an excellent restaurant.

Spectacular views make Madeira one of the world's most popular holiday destinations – and Funchal one of its most popular places to stay. So why not choose a hotel in the best possible setting with the best possible views – a hotel like the Orca Praia Hotel.

      A long steep walk with steps down to the pool. Nowhere in the hotel to get a drink or coffee in the day other than the pool bar - entailing the steep walk!
      Limited vegetarian options at dinner.

      We were very pleased with this hotel. Decor, fresh flowers in reception and general style were excellent.

      I have 'marked down' the hotel on food. Breakfasts were excellent but a trial dinner which we had was a little disappointing, as vegetables seemed to be frozen. A pity - just one little complaint and I'm sure they will change this in time.
