There were a number of perks to this hotel. Firstly the staff were very friendly and helpful, even when we asked for housekeeping to bring more milk or the ironing board it was done in double quick time. Really friendly check in and we could access the room from 11am which was really nice. The rooms were big and comfortable.... More

Just returned from a 4 night break here. As others have said the staff are fantastic, so cheerful and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent, the bar service is good. We chose half board and to be honest the Dinner buffet was a disappointment. There are numerous places to eat within a few hundred yards of the hotel and if... More

If you are looking for a place to go where the sun shines and the sea is blue - but without the excessive drinking mob or squabbling families - Madeira is it. Its anything but boring and has attractions for all ages, but really if you are into walking/hiking then you are in the right place. We booked a week... More

Stayed here for a week on our first visit to Madeira. Holiday booked through Cosmos. Hotel is in a good setting in the Lido area, and slightly off the bustle of the main road. Nonetheless it's perfectly feasible to walk into the town centre if you wish, alternatively the no's 1 and 2 buses go past the door. Room was... More

This is a package deal hotel and lacks the soul of a proper 5 star hotel. It has a cold unwelcoming reception. Rooms are standard fare but lack the touches that would make a 5 star rating, bedding is cheap and the pillows awful foam ones. There are no sockets by the bed unless you dig around. Bathroom is fine... More

Stayed for 2 weeks at Christmas, (our fourth time). A modern hotel in a very convenient position, with all the amenities you would expect in a 5star hotel, the staff are very helpful, the rooms large and comfortable. A excellent, comfortable base for a relaxing holiday.
