Room was clean, quiet and it had a balcony with ocean view. Food was also good, with a large choice, always several options of fresh fish, fresh vegetables and loads of desserts to choose from. The pool was somehow cold as not heated when we were there. The staff was fluent in several languages, and welcoming, especially the restaurant staff... More

Really enjoyed our week at this hotel. Lovely bedroom overlooking the sea, food good, staff friendly, spotlessly clean and a quiet location if you are looking for a peaceful break. A nice pool area and great to enjoy a drink and a meal on the terrace overlooking the sea and watching the sunsets. Evening entertainment consisted of a guest singer... More

The situation of the hotel, just by the sea, was wonderful. The nicely-sized balconies and wide sliding doors mean that you can continue to enjoy the view from your room. Note that the waves smash onto large stones which makes much more noise than shingle: when the sea is rough, it can sound like a locomotive rushing towards you –... More

Lovely hotel situated on beautiful island. Room had wonderful sea view and was well appointed. As throughout the hotel was spotlessly clean. Staff friendly and polite at all times. Special thanks to dining room staff always busy but always smiling. Free bus into Funchal was nice touch.

This holiday was quite a departure for us, our first all inclusive holiday and it came as a very pleasant surprise. The hotel itself was fine, the rooms were certainly good enough, very spacious and spotlessly clean, although the soundproofing could be improved. The pool area was a very comfortable place to relax and having a self service bar for... More
