The resort of Canico is divided into two different sections, the traditional Old Village with a main square and the modern resort area. Most of the bars and restaurants are hotel based but there are some in the resort. There is a small pebble beach which offers a variety of watersports.

Canico does have a beach, however, it is a pebble beach. The area is great for activities such as walking, hiking and golf but a trip to Funchal may provide a wider variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Perfect for families and couples looking for a peaceful resort due to the lack of nightlife.
The attractive Old Village is centred around the village square and is a maze of cobbbled streets and a 18th Century church.
The resort may not be suitable with those with walking difficulties due to the steep landscape.

Loved the beach area. Great activities could be booked from LokoLoko. Loved it all. Would have liked more fast busses to Funchal from the resort.

Canico is a quiet resort, not for the party animal. Some local bars, restaurants and shops but the choices are limited. Far more in Funchal, a short ride away.

Quiet resort but still a few good restaurants to choose from within 5-10 minute walk.

I can't really rate it as a resort as I only used the room as a base whilst visiting friends, but it does have an indoor and outdoor pool and sea views.
