When you choose a 3 star hotel, you have to grade your expectations for a 3 star hotel. A clean room, with a decent shower, a fairly breakfast and the sympathy of the staff. That's what I expect on a 3 star hotel that is not so recent. We found all of that on Hotel do Carmo with some pluses... More

I am not sure why this hotel gets such good reviews. The price is higher than of those even with 4 stars in the area, and with such positive reviews I expected more. The rooms need updating, the towels are hard, pillows or the beds aren't very comfortable. The bar by the pool is never open, although they will bring... More

Monica F, Manager at Hotel do Carmo, responded to this review

Thank you for the comment made on TripAdvisor, which took our best attention. We are a bit surprised that you didn’t enjoy your stay in our hotel. We started the renovation of the hotel in 2010 and tried to create an atmosphere of the sixties in all the rooms and public areas. The furniture was also recovered from that time... More

I had lived on the island for 5 years & was returning to fulfill a special request from my late husband. Not wanting to stay with friends or hotels previously stayed in, I opted for the Carmo for its position & size. The staff were most kind. The decor dated, but my room was clean & comfortable. I will be... More

Excellent Staff - very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Jose deserves a special mention - very nice man Rooms are basic, very clean, good sleep - no complaints. Location is central - great base to explore / relax in and around Funchal. Personal opinion - please replace shower curtain with screen. Would stay again.

Nice find in Funchal City Center. Lobby and dining room look old - fashioned but the rooms are quite modern and comfortable. Mine was a little small but enough for a short stay, and at a good price. Staff was very nice, very welcoming, spoke excellent English and French and very helpful when it turned out there was a snafu... More

Very helpful and pleasant staff. Nice outside area for late afternoon drinks. Bar area spacious with free wi-fi. Good location, close to buses and marina. Room had everything wee needed but perhaps a little tired. Would recommend this hotel if you like to get about and do your own thing.
