Funchal Seaside Villas

My experience with Navega Bem Web design was the best and I could not recommend them more. Great experienced team that helped me all the way to build the website with all the utilities I asked for. Not being a tech specialist myself they have answered all my questions and guided me through the whole process. Will definitely choose them again the next time I need similar services.

Banda do Sol

From the outset of 2022 I knew that I needed a new website with a fresh look but more importantly, one that was user friendly on mobile devices. Each step of my online search for a solution took me into a deeper state of panic about how complicated and expensive it all was going to be. Conversations with ‘experts’ had my head pounding within minutes.
And then a miracle happened…a link to Navega Bem popped up on my screen. The fact that this was a company based in Madeira offering very affordable hosting and web development seemed like pure kismet!
Chris responded immediately to my request and from the outset I knew I was in good hands. He and his team not only took the ball and ran with it but were more than happy to answer any question I might have had and reacted intuitively to any change I might have suggested. And within no time I was presented with a new website that I am more than happy with. The last hurdle to conquer was going to be managing this new site on my own. Again, within minutes of my training session I knew I was going to be able to go it alone. However Chris made it very clear that he and his team were a mere call away for anything I might need.
All I can say is this kind of service and product excellence doesn’t just make me a happy client, it makes me a loyal client!
Muito Obrigada!.

Chris and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with. From our sketchy ideas they were able to create a beautiful, user friendly and fully informative web presence for our business. Nothing was too much trouble and Chris was sympathetic to our changes and additional requests. The registering of the domain was also painless and cost effective. We are also using Navega Bem for hosting. Very professional and a credit to Madeira. I recommend Chris and his team very highly.

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.

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.

Researching and discussing my project with various companies did nothing to dispel my dread. It seemed that the main goal of everyone I spoke with was to tell me what they would NOT or could NOT do. Every little change would incur an additional (massive) fee. Besides which, I was not confident at all that anybody really understood the concept and design issues I wanted to implement. I contacted Chris of Navegabem after finding him through Google and received a proposal. Unlike the others, it was a complete proposal which included features such as the marketing of the site after its completion. I felt that here was a company not only interested in creating a site but in seeing it successful AFTER launch. The price was very fair, but what definitely caught my attention was Chris stating that they would work on the site until it was "the way I wanted it to be". I was a bit (very) skeptical....but decided to take the plunge and I am so glad I did.

From the start, the process was a re-discovery of what good customer service is. In fact, my business is customer service based but I felt that I was "going back to school" as I watched Chris manage the project. I learned a lot. Responses were immediate - always. Assistance on the part of his team is total, 100% of the time. Issues get resolved on the spot and there is flexibility. Best of all, Chris makes web designing fun and relaxing. I always felt like I was being heard. I actually started to enjoy the whole process which was (very) unexpected. I don't remember ever feeling frustrated or that Chris and his team were taking things in a direction I did not want, and I consider myself a demanding customer. Chris does not take the shortcut ever. He will propose what is best for the client/website even if it takes him more time to implement it. The team is very creative and talented and does not do things in a standardized fashion. The features they came up with are one of a kind. Who wants a website that looks like everyone else's!

I now have a stellar site - both visually as well as technically. I could not wish for anything to be better. Chris and the team are working daily to market the site and continue to be available to me with any questions I may have or to provide assistance with training. I have already referred Navegabem to some of my friends and recommend them highly.

Funchal Cottages - Portugal

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. We feel we have an excellent website, very up to date in all the new media platforms that will stand the test of time and didn´t break the bank.

All subsequent communication since the site went online has been fast and efficient and all my questions have been patiently explained. Joomla is very easy to use and makes us independent and fast at making changes, our traffic is up and the website is a great success.

Once again Muito Obrigado.

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!

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.

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).

Thanks to the whole team at Navega Bem for your professionalism, support and continued collaboration.

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.

Before we had a rather frustrating experience with developing our new site, I searched for a new solution and frustration continued, until the day I found Navegabem by searching google and contacted Chris. From the very moment when I received Chris´s very prompt answer and proposal, I knew that we had found the right partner. My enthusiasm for the project came back immediately and I felt that Chris and his team shared it and could not wait to start working together. Whilst developing our new site, integrating our specific requirements and wishes we realized the complexity of our project was bigger than we may have imagined at the beginning, but with your great customer orientated support it was easy to successfully find solutions together. And finally the results are there!

The service, professional skills, and creativity, together with the price - performance ratio of Navega Bem are recommendable without any reservations, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else.

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.

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.

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.

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, 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.
