The Vila Galé Santa Cruz Hotel is one of Madeira's very best 4-star hotels, featuring a sophisticated ambience, excellent facilities and rooms that are both spacious and sumptuously furnished.MORE ABOUT THE HOTEL
The Vila Galé Santa Cruz hotel is located in the wonderful Santa Cruz town, on the southeast coast in a seafront position that is just 15 minutes from Funchal, a town with a good mix of old and new featuring 16th-century architecture and a popular marina and Lido.
The hotel features 262 rooms and enjoys a cosy ambience and has a comprehensive range of facilities including three 3 bars and two restaurants - its superb Inevitável Pasta Lounge restaurant offers a menu featuring only the best pasta and Italian sauces. There's also a spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness room, Jacuzzi, Turkish baths and a children's mini club, plus a golf desk and clubs closet for the golfing enthusiast.
The rooms of the Santa Cruz Hotel are fitted with LCD screen TVs, DVD player, and wireless Internet connection, ensuring your stay is as comfortable as possible. Standard rooms sleep up to 3 adults with twin beds, a camp bed or similar and bathroom, air-conditioning, minibar and balcony.
Outside, features include Olympic-sized pool, as well as a poolside bar, a kids club, a Spa with a fitness room, a Jacuzzi, a Turkish bath or Roman hot spring and a car park for those that wish to rent a car. There's also a shuttle to Funchal.
The club has three loops, making up 27 holes, all of which were designed by Robert Trent Jones, and the predominant characteristic is the severity of the putting surfaces. From the tees the fairways are relatively generous, but the greens are small, and their considerable slopes make putting extremely tricky.
Having hosted the Madeira Open every year since 1993, Santa da Serra's stock is continuing to rise, and is an essential part of any good golfing holiday to Madeira.
