We called for lunch at the outdoor restaurant which is around the back and down some stairs. It was a beautiful day so we sat in the shade to have our lunch. The food was very fresh and tasty, I had a smoked salmon salad and my husband had tuna salad. It was slightly more expensive than other places for... More

We stayed 7 nights in the hotel. We liked the place as the location is quite central. About 15 - 20 minutes to go downtime Funchal and approximately the same time to go into the direction of the Reids hotel to find restaurants. We stayed in room 71 which was clean. Nothing to complain about the beds and the furniture.... More

Perfect location friendly staff. Pool on edge of the sea. Although water cold. Easy walk along sea front to town and old town Suggest taking the bus no 20 or 21 to Monte. You need a sweater for evening's outside eating or for cooler windy days No beach just rocks

We loved it. An excellent location, a room with air conditioning, balcony and sea view, good restaurant (we went B & B but used it on several evenings) and lovely gardens. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and, if we go to Madeira again, this hotel will be our first choice. Pete D

We enjoyed this hotel very much because it was quiet and comfortable. Rather unusually the rooms and corridors were carpeted which kept sound levels down. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the ambience was relaxed . It is well positioned for restaurants and buses and for town. The two pool areas were not at all crowded and as... More

The main hotel is a traditional Portuguese manor house beautifully restored surrounded with beautiful gardens and... More

Lovely collection of old buildings interspersed with gardens and terraces. Great atmosphere at breakfast either inside or out on raised terrace. Same area serves as early evening aperitif venue. Lounge in reception area is delightfully furnished, light and very soothing. Good Wi-Fi in same area. Prices are reasonable and overall give good value for a very relaxed stay. Location is... More
