Vila Galé Santa Cruz



The Vila Galé Santa Cruz hotel, in Madeira, offers an incomparable view of the Atlantic Ocean, along with the town’s picturesque atmosphere.

This hotel in Madeira, only five minutes away from the airport, has 262 warm and sophisticated rooms. It also features two restaurants, two bars, an outdoor pool and spa with heated indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath, gym and massage rooms.

Besides offering free wi-fi access in all areas, the Vila Galé Santa Cruz hotel has a modern and well-equipped convention center and a multi-purpose space for any leisure or business circumstances.

For a true communion with nature, during your stay at this hotel in Madeira, enjoy the variety of nautical sports, marvel at the different diving spots, get to know the levadas (irrigation channels) and do not leave without breathing in the tranquility of the Laurissilva forest. For a complete overview of the island, admire the views of the Atlantic, the steep cliffs, the wave-shaped hills full of vegetation and the banana plantations. The natural pools of Porto Moniz, Curral das Freiras, Câmara de Lobos and Santana, with its traditional small houses, are must-see sites.

Also, keep in mind that the Vila Galé Santa Cruz is 15 minutes from the center of Funchal, a city full of shops and historic nooks. In the city, you’ll be able to photograph postcard-worthy moments. On the Farmers' Market (Mercado dos Lavradores), it’s the florists wearing their traditional costumes, surrounded by orchids and other plants, that give a special variety of colors and aroma to it. Strolling along the corridors, let the fruit vendors convince you and savor here and there the many varieties of Madeira fruits and other delicacies like poncha (traditional alcoholic drink) or the flat bread bolo do caco. At the end of your visit, we challenge you to remember the number of passion fruit varieties you have tasted.

For the golf lovers staying in this hotel in Madeira, there is the challenging Santo da Serra Golf Club, with the sea as its backdrop.
