This is a very nice hotel. I have stayed in better 5 star hotels, but they all cost from twice the price up to 5 times the price of this one! You generally get more for your money in Madeira, but this is particularly great value. Note: we got the best deal by booking direct with Melia.com, and joining their... More

This was our second trip to this excellent hotel after a very positive experience the previous gates, so we had high expectations. We were not disappointed in any way. The facilities are of a very high standard and are well maintained. The location is superb - accessible on foot from Funchal centre (20 minute walk) with unobstructed ocean views. However,... More

The reception was abysmal, five-star hotels that do not fit, the receptionist unspeakable behavior .... In total, the staff is insured, with difficulty, but completed the necessary job, -sajnos pillatig no one felt it would be a 5 star hotel.

This Hotel is excellent and well worth its high rating. The Hotel is spotless and modern and is maintained to a high standard. We were in a sea view room number 535 which looked out over the pool and had a good size balcony with a table and 2 chairs to relax in as the sun went down. The room... More

This is my 4th visit as I love the large rooms with spacious terraces. The décor is neutral and unfussy, the beds are large and very comfortable and the bathrooms have lovely showers. The pool area has plenty of sunbeds and the breakfasts are very good too.
