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Like most hotels in Madeira, it is very outdated.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)

I really can't add anything to last years review which I have copied below, tho you can walk into Funchal centre in 30 minutes as opposed to 40 min, as you don't stop off as often at the sights or shops as you make the journey the second time round - "Top floor, sea view, large room, excellent, was B&B...

We were lucky to get a room with a balcony with a sea view and I can tell you that it was well worth the extra money. Waking up to that view every morning never got boring! The room was cleaned and well equipped with more TV channels than you usually get in hotel rooms abroad. The maids were so... More

Old decoration, with worn carpets on the hall. Breakfast: short variety of products, and low quality. Expensive price for dinner, with less money you can eat around the hotel typical food. The only positive thing, was the view and location.
