If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in the most sublime setting,look no further. Every detail is cared for to perfection. The building and atmosphere are perfect and with Cocktail Parties and Happy Hours,you could be forgiven for thinking you were living a Colonial Lifestyle. Massive rooms and sumptuous breakfasts complete the luxurious experience. Nothing seems too much bother for... More

The staff really make this hotel, nothing is too much trouble and they really want you to enjoy your stay. Even the girl who cleaned the room left me an extra box of tissues (unasked for) as I had a cold. Not a particularly nice walk into Funchal and quite a steep walk back so we ended up paying for...
