Friendly staff and very clean is the nice thing about this hotel , but i only found out that is was closing as i checked in therefore some of the facilities were not available, although i would have and did pay for those facilities. The reason it is closing is for a refurbishment which it badly needs. We will have... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week in September and we loved it. Although the décor is a bit dated in places, we understand that there is to be some extensive renovation work being done during the coming winter months. We found the room to be very comfortable and the self-service style restaurant really was excellent, both had... More

I was a bit apprehensive about my stay in this hotel due to the adverse reviews I had read. However, from my arrival in the beautiful lobby with its marble floors and friendly staff, my fears diminished. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious if a bit dated, the view was described as a 'mountain view' which was a banana covered... More

The comfortable beds and wonderful view from our 10th floor sea view room made up for our initial disappointment in finding that this hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment. We didn't find that this spoiled our holiday as we were out and about discovering the beautiful island of Madeira. The rooms and public areas are a bit threadbare and... More

I was looking for a medium quality hotel regarding the price. But what I've found was an hotel that stopped in time and still says that it's a four star hotel. Taking into account the evolution of the turism industry in Madeira Island the hotel should have a two star evaluation. Very old, lack of diversity in the entrentainment and... More

We didn't book this hotel through a tour operator; I booked hotel, flights and car hire separately. It is listed as a four star hotel on Thomas Cook and the hotel themselves rate it as four star, had we gone with Thomas Cook I would have complained to the Tour Company, but as I booked it myself I only have...

The hotel itself is a little bit older but the view to the ocean is excellent. Don't expect a lot regarding the room but it is clean and there is a lot of space, huge bathroom. The breakfast is a little bit boring but a normal buffet. The staff and the service is very nice. Free parking and next to... More

Room was clean and comfortable, cleaned daily. A few things lacking - two single beds instead of double but think we booked a twin through package; had to pay 12euro to use safe for week; no Iron & board available only an expensive laundry and pressing service; no tea and coffee making facilities in room (just a few things I...

but also not ****. The sea view is very nice, the location is good, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the hotel offers a free garage. On the other side: the hotel rooms feel quite old an the mattress and pillow quality are way below what I'm used to in hotels. Fresh fruit and canned fruit get mixed... More
