We spent 3 weeks here over Xmas and new year in a junior suite and had a very good holiday. The location was ideal for us...on the outskirts of Funchal, on the beach...so no climbs to the beach. You can walk a long way both ways along the coastal paths. Food was good. All the staff were excellent and worked... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a package. The location: It is situated at some distance from Funchal which is a bit impractical, but there is a free bus service to and from the city. However, the last bus from Funchal leaves at 18:30, so you have to take a cab, if you want to see Funchal at... More

This hotel is a little way from Funchal so bear this in mind if you don't want to rely on shuttle bus or taxi. However, the taxi driver we had was chatty and told us lots about the island. The beach is metres away and the sound of the waves is always in the background which I loved. Access to... More

Short budget break to Madeira for New Year fireworks. Hotel exceeded all expectations. At all Levels. The New Year Gala dinner was amazing and we will consider taking our Daughters and Family back next year to Key in with the Fireworks. We left the Gala too early, as we were worried about traffic to the port. In the end it... More
