hush-hush Madeira

"Working with NavegaBem was a pleasure from the beginning. They followed our project very early, creating our Branding and our website.
Not only did they perfectly execute everything we asked for, but also added value to the project through their opinions and experience in the field. Helping us even on the creation of some products.
We'll 100% recommend the services of NavegaBem.”

Distinctive Italy Weddings - USA

I had been dreading the process of creating a new website for a while. My past experience in designing sites had been very frustrating. Generally the webmaster promises much but delivers little. The main issue is the inability to understand or grasp the creative aspect of the project and the end product looks like nothing I ever envisioned. And as far as timing, they also seemed to drag on endlessly without the final product ever taking form. (...)

Madere Intime

This is as a very satisfied customer that I write this comment. I already heard about NavegaBem reputation from a friend of mine who came directly from Lisbon to hire their services as web designers and he just kept on praising them. So, when the time came for me to materialize my ideas into a website, I just ran to them.
There, I found a very friendly, professional and always available team who was able to understand my needs and put them in images. Never ever it crossed my mind to contact another company which provides the same kind of services because the truth is that I couldn't be more happier with their work and it is very naturally that I highly recommend them.

Hotel Hamburg Mitte (Second website in 4 years) - Germany

Dear Mr. Szabo
Our website went online last week. That was from our point of view a 'super - on time delivery'. Navega Bem gave us a transparent budget, an excellent design and stayed within the budget and completion deadline. The website has gone above our expectations in every way. The site is very calm and allows clients to get the information they seek very quickly (and book a hotel room).

Jürgen Gieseke
Managing Director - Hotel Hamburg Mitte (www.apartment-hotel.de)


I have recently had the pleasure of working with Navega Bem for creating my website. I am absolutely thrilled by the final product, which took less then half the time originally stated, to be concluded. The attention to detail, the swiftness of response from Chris Szabo, Creative Director, and the guidance to submit content for the site was exceptional.
I recommend Navega Bem highly if you are looking for a very dedicated and experienced team to come up with a fabulous looking site!

MILCOTS rugged displays and panels - USA

It has been a real pleasure working with you and your team of professionals. Our new website is fully in line with our expectations and the exchanges throughout the design phase have been smooth and efficient. The Joomla solution gives us a great flexibility to internally manage the website: expanding and updating the range of products have required an easy and very short training course.
Thanks again!

Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club - Portugal

"Navega Bem" came to our attention through a friends recommendation and from the first meeting they became the perfect partner for our project. They fully understood our requirements and shortly after our first meeting presented us with a design concept that was exactly what we had in mind

Nothing was too much trouble, they always delivered what they promised and all deadlines were met according to what had been previously agreed.

OnForce Solar - Solar Energy Solutions - USA

Creative, responsive, tech savvy and problem solver are a few of the many positive adjectives I can describe my experience working with Chris and his team on redesigning our website. Chris understood where we wanted to go with our site from the very beginning and his execution matched our vision and surpassed our expectations. His understanding of the importance of social networking, SEO and end user navigation was very valuable. Chris is very easy to work with and we are definitely going to continue doing so.
This has been our second site in 4 years with Navega Bem.

Casas Valleparaizo - Portugal

Thanks to the whole team at Navega Bem for your professionalism, support and continued collaboration.
One of your biggest assets is that once you have developed a website, instead of abandoning a client, you stay at their side improving the project. A clients success is Navega Bem's success. Thank you to everyone.

Clínica de São Lourenço - Portugal

When we began building the site, we could not imagine the enormous and complex task that awaited us. At the end of such a tortuous but exciting journey, it is with immense gratitude and appreciation that we thank the team of Navega Bem Web Design, especially Sara and Marco.
Without your continued support, without your suggestions and without your professionalism, we would not have achieved the amazing end result that is now online. Since the beginning Navega Bem had the understanding that our site had a didactic environment and, as such, several revisions were necessary to achieve the desired objective.
Your attitude of spontaneous creativity, allowed an environment of empathy, which greatly facilitated the ongoing exchange of ideas and opinions, which have greatly influenced the final outcome.

Peachtree Primary Care

I have been working on a small project with NavegaBem for the past couple of years. The project was put off due to business reasons at my end. NavegaBem team consistently followed-up and periodically checked-in to help me complete the project. I had initially found them via online research and after a brief presentation from Chris, agreed to move forward. My business is located in Atlanta, Georgia US, and I have never physically met them. Although I was originally apprehensive in signing-up with a developer across half the globe, I must admit that this by far has been one of the best business decisions that I've made. Their professionalism and commitment to customer service is definitely best-in-class. They are extremely responsive and follow through on their promises. Chris and team have been truly amazing!.

Dear Chris,
First of all, thanks for your great and very professional support from the beginning, the launching up until today, for making our project happen. It is and has been a pleasure to work with you and your team. The co-operation was at all times to our full satisfaction, mainly the always quick and solution orientated communication. We are convinced that with you, the future of our project could be in no better hands.

Thanks to all the team at Navega Bem for their excellent professional work with our website. All the stages were easy to develop and communication was fast and understanding of our specific needs and budget constraints.

Sequoia Consulting Sagl – Switzerland

Thanks to the Navega Bem Team, I have been able to develop a high performing Real Estate CMS multi-language website. They had all the skill to customize it as per my wishes. I also remark a strong after sales support by the programmers. I can sincerely recommend this cost effective company.

Deal Sniper - USA

I cannot be more satisfied with the website design service provided by 'Navegabem'. They're very creative and professional yet they treat their customer very personally. During requirement collection and problem diagnosis, Chris often offered to call me and talk to me on the phone directly. The quality of work is more than at a satisfied level. They always do more than what is asked for.

On top of flawless execution, they offer unbeatable after-sales support that truly impressed me, while other design houses seams to abandon their customers after project delivery. They might not be the cheapest design company, but the 'Return of Investment' can be well justified and you definitely get what you pay for.

Finally, I must not forget to give you the props for delivering on time while maintaining the quality of deliverables.

Madeira Explorers - Portugal

Having known Chris Szabo since 1996, when it was time to re-design our new website we could only have thought of Chris and his experienced team - Navega Bem.

Having followed his work for several years we knew we could only expect the best. His experience, the quality of his work, the innovative ideas, were not only met but also exceeded our expectations.

It has been a real pleasure working with Navega Bem, a company that understands our requirements, flexible when necessary and continuously producing work of a consistently high quality.

Palheiro Golf

I have always admired Chris Szabo's work ever since the late 90's when he was involved in some of the design for the original Palheiro Estate websites. Some 10 years later we have had the opportunity to work together again with Chris and his new company 'Navega Bem' who have been able to draw on their considerable commercial experience as both designers and operators.
The results are websites that are easy to use, simple to manage, dynamic, and most importantly are set up to sell.
In a very short space of time the general traffic is up and our google rankings have increased significantly.

Fishmadeira (Katherine B)

To whom it may concern.
Chris Szabo built the first web-site that I ever had. In fact it was one of the first websites in Madeira and certainly the first in the Big Game Fishing industry.
This gave me an incredible advantage with an overwhelming worldwide response. That was back in 1996. Now, ten years later Chris has just launched my new site, www.fishmadeira.com The immediate response from clients and friends, old and new has been remarkable. The new technology employed by Chris together with his expertise to build the new site has once again put me way in front in this competitive marketplace. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris as my first choice for web design and construction. To my mind, he is without equal.

Funchal Daily Photo

The Funchal Daily Photo site (www.funchaldailyphoto.com) is living a new life after officially launching it's new design in the day of Funchal, 21st of August 2015.

It's the first time since it's launch in 29th of April 2009, when I fisrt started publishing daily images of the Capital of Madeira, that the site had a complete and professional site developed by a professional team. The Navega Bem - Web Design team deserves a congratulations for the completion of this project that was in need of an evolution.
(...) So, after some time in the works, the new site is officially launched. Although ready for a few weeks I chose to associate the launch to the city day, a city with over five centuries.
(...) A special thank you to Navega Bem, and in particular to Lisete, Chris and Marta.
(...) Other projects, have long been in the mouth of the world. Happily I know the city where I was born and live. And it comes as no surprise that my work is recognizes more outside the country, where the most treasured compliments arrive.
