Amazing! Didn’t want to leave
Calheta is approx 50min from the airport so it’s not that close to Funchal but the hotel and surrounding is sooooo nice that it makes up for it in terms of not being close to the things you would normally cover as a tourist. Loved the breakfast (soooo good especially the egg and pancake station). The view from our sea view room with balcony. The pools, the gym. We didn’t want to leave obviously!
The view at breakfast
The pancakes are so good as freshly made and drizzled with sugar cane honey, sprinkled with cinnamon
Fruits are breakfast and that view
The view on the roof

Rest and Relaxation in Calheta
Savoy Saccharum Hotel was the perfect place for my friend and I who wanted a place to rest and relax. While there are many common areas where you can enjoy the views of the ocean, we decided to treat ourselves to rooms with sea-view. The rooms are well-appointed, the beds are comfortable and the good water pressure in the showers. The luxurious modern decor of the hotel and rooms are based on the sugar cane history of the location. The spa facilities and therapists were excellent. The buffet breakfast was very good. Great location as restaurants and supermarket are only minutes away by foot.

8/10 Very good

Lovely hotel; shame about the smoking.
We had a fantastic week at this hotel. We paid the extra for premium club experience. It was well worth it. Fantastic service from all the staff. My two issues were: being on the 7th floor underneath the Fly bar, we could hear the music and singing above us until late at night; the biggest problem was the smoking - allowing smoking on the balcony of the hotel rooms meant we were unable to enjoy the use of our balcony. We also had to keep closing our sliding door when the guest next door was smoking on his balcony. I heard another guest complaining at reception about the same issue affecting them. In the UK, most outdoor areas where food is being served, do not allow smoking. It ruined our experience of the Club outdoor area, when other guests smoked whilst we were eating/drinking there.
