Once you fing this place, you will realise that it was all worthwhile, very quiet well away from traffic and noise. Rooms are good sized and quality, if a little dated. The whole thing is about the panaorama from a high vista. Because of that access is steep both in the car arriving and by foot at the property, all worthwile. Perhaps not for those with a mobility problem because of the access.
Beautiful views and friendly staff

First time visitors to Madeira, I stayed here for a week with my mum and sister. The garden&views are lovely, and all the staff there were all friendly and attentive. The breakfasts were fantastic, and the rooms very comfortable. It was pretty easy to get around by bus, so we managed fine without hiring a car. It was nice to be out of the busy hotel area. As animal-lovers, we enjoyed befriending the guesthouse's cats! Would definitely go back!
Warm winter-time escape

Casa do Papagaio Verde is a really peaceful and comfortable guest house - elegant, but with many homely touches! We spent a week here in December, and enjoyed it very much. We were met with a warm welcome and glass of madeira wine, and were shown to the lovely Garden suite and later the Palmeira studio, both were quiet, well-equipped and cleaned daily during our stay. The lovely manager gave us plenty of useful info about places to visit and what transport to take, and also invited us to join in the home-prepared supper offered on our first night (evening meals are not regularly provided unless requested). From the rooms and the breakfast balcony, there is a fabulous view towards Praia Formosa and the rest of Funchal, and the garden is well tended with gorgeous flowers and an outdoor (unheated) pool, where you can while away a blissful hour or two! There are a few friendly cats living here, who will come and keep you company if you like, but aren't any trouble if you aren't a cat-lover! Breakfasts on the balcony with the sound of waves breaking on the beach below, and fresh flowers on the table are a treat, with home-grown fruits and jams available, and delicious coffee. The bathrooms were spacious and the kitchenette in the Palmeira studio was very convenient for some easy cooking. All the staff we met were very friendly and gracious, and we were impressed by the attention to detail shown by the housekeeping team. This is a treasure of a place to stay, and we would return with hesitation!

It wasn't our first visit to Madeira island, but as we were travelling with infant this time I was searching for calm, peaceful place with nice garden and friendly atmosphere instead of hotel in a centre of Funchal or one of resorts. But what we have experienced was beyond all our expectations ! First of all I must write that the staff and the owners were very helpful, friendly and polite - from this point I'd like to say once more big thank you to all of you :) Hotel is located in nice residencial district of Sao Martinho in Funchal and may be a bit difficult to find if you don't have a car (but it's not a must as there are bus stops around) There are two buildings, both are beautiful and modern but with charm and harmony. We spent one night in a room in main building and almost a week in a Studio aparment near the pool. Rooms were clean, pleasantly decorated and equipped with all the necessary things. All have direct access to the garden which is absolutely stunning with plenty of fantastic plants and trees. The pool and the scenery was simply amazing. During the summer delicious breakfast was served in the garden which was a great idea ! Overall it's one of those top class places you can return anytime. If we not move to Madeira one day, surely we'll spend our time there during next vacation :)
Better every time

We are returning visitors but this was the first summer visit. We love the breakfast buffet outside. We were also lucky enough to have the studio by the pool. Paradise! You will need a car to get around although there also is a bus stop near by. But we have never used it.
