Having been recommended this hotel, we booked a week's holiday in August. We were certainly not disappointed. It is well situated on the promenade right in the Old Town district of Funchal and only two minutes walk from the cable car. We had a large room with a side sea view looking onto the harbour. The room was spotless, well... More

This was our first visit to this hotel, I was particularly keen to give it a go having passed it on previous visits whilst walking along the promenade. The reports on Trip Advisor only reinforced our desire to stay here, we were not disappointed. This is a smallish property at the end of the promenade near to the cable car... More

Our room had a balcony with a fantastic view of the sea. Breakfast was good with a huge choice of hot/cold food. The lady greeter at the door... More

The hotel, because it is not large ,has a more relaxed atmosphere.People are not fighting for sun beds! There is a beautiful solarium on the roof with wicker sunbeds,chairs and sofas with canopy coverings and jacuzzi .(Super view-Take a bottle of wine up there at night!) We arrived at 1.20 and our room was being cleaned. We were quite happy... More

We have just come back from a one week holiday in Funchal and stayed at this lovely hotel. This hotel is in a great location, right on the sea front in the old town, near lots of good restaurants. It's just a 2 minute walk from the Cable car (which you can take up to Monte or the botanical gardens,... More
