As said before by others this hotels glory days are over. 80-90's decoration, lots of marble... But very clean, huge rooms and everything worked. No wifi in the rooms but at least in the lobby and cocktail bar. Ok hotel, seen a lot worse places.

Clean rooms, comfortable beds and reasonable enough service. The hotel was spotless albeit dated. The pool is great and it is located in what can only be described as the hotel district. Would I go back, yes.

Stayed here for 4 nights for a short break in March. Let's start with positives: good location about 20-25 minute walk into town and great views out to the sea. It has some good facilities, there is even a squash court in the middle of the hotel, and pool area is ok. The courtesy bus to town is useful, 4... More

We have just come back from a weeks holiday at madeira and stayed at the Baia Azul hotel. Good things first. Check in was good with the receptionist giving out maps and other info, 12 euros for hiring the safe and we have not used hotel keys in years , all seem to have cards now. The room was nice... More

I do wonder what some people expect from a holiday having read some of these reviews. My husband and I stayed here 17-27th December 2014 and it was very enjoyable, all staff very pleasant and helpful. We checked in and a member of staff took our bags to our room (1012) which was very big with plenty of storage. We... More

Huge room, seaview. Very old, clearly had its glory days in the 70/80's. Old TV, marple bathroom. Only one outlet worked, the one in the bathroom made horrible noise when I tried plugging in my hairdryer. A very big minus - no WIFI in the room. It was very windy and the room was very cold. Also somehow the wind... More

We went several times to Funchal. Our first for New´s Year Eve at Funchal, with a price of a 4 stars Hotel. A really bad choice. Just to sumarize: PROS: 1. 3,5 kms from down town center, but has a Courtesy Bus (Bus Tickets are not cheap..) 2. Excellent sea view (if you choose a room with this location, as... More

We stayed here for six nights (should have been seven but we'd been diverted overnight to Gran Canaria because of high winds). The room was generously proportioned and had a good sized balcony with a sea view. The corridors too are spacious. Wifi is available in reception and the bar area, and parts of the restaurant. The staff are friendly... More

Like most hotels in Madeira, it is very outdated. A lot of marble. It is however comfortable and friendly. We were lucky to have a beautiful view of the sea. The Wi-Fi is rather a disappointment as it is only in the cocktail lounge or in the reception area, nothing in the rooms. The breakfast is a rather large selection... More

Well located hotel in Funchal, good service, very clean, well furnished, located close to the cost of Atlantic Ocean, with Sea View Rooms. Perfect vacations, well recommended to everyone! 4 star hotel, good meals, close to the city center and to all facilities (Ocean, Beach, Shops, Restaurants, etc)
