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.

The hotel is 20 minutes away from Funchal airport by private taxi transfer. It is located on the outskirts of Funchal (approx. 2.5Km) and close to the Madeira Forum shopping centre. The hotel offers a free courtesy bus into the main area of Funchal 4 times per day (9:10, 11:10, 15:10 & 17:40) which drops off near the marina. It... More

I would rate this as between 'average' and 'very good', i.e. 3.5 dots, but that is not possible. It seems to be on the way down, as the sports facilities that you expect in a 4 star were not available, or at least, not advertised. I have seen several hotels abroad that claimed to be a star above what they... More

This hotel was rated four stars, so I expected a good experience. Truth was, it was three-star level at best. The room safes had no locks and therefore were worthless. The room thermostat was locked to prevent you from raising or lowering the temperature. There was one electrical outlet for the entire room, which is inexcusable in the era of... More

My husband, myself and his elderly mother stayed here for a weekend recently. We had read some unfavourable reviews and were a bit concerned that we might have made a mistake. Well we hadn't! We arrived earlier than the official check-in time, but the staff were very helpful and suggested that we get a drink /coffee while the rooms were... More

I stayed with my family for a week at this hotel. Firstly, this is NOT a true 4-star by any standard. There is no concierge desk, their decor has not been updated in at least 30 years, and the facilities are not as advertised. We stayed in a real 4-star in Lisbon the night prior as we had to to...

It was our first trip to Madeira Island and we're booked to stay at this hotel. The rooms albeit having an older look and feel to them they were great. Add the views from our ocean front rooms and the breakfast was included it was a great place to stay. The only area of improvement would be the internet service.... More

Top floor, sea view, large room, excellent, was B&B only so did not sample the main meals, breakfast more than adequate & covered all tastes. Quiet establishment in a quiet part of town with a fair choice of local restaurants, about a 40 min casual walk into the old town proper, hotel a bit tired but that is reflected in... More

We stayed at the hotel Baia Azul for one week in early october. The hotel is like a time capsule! Definitely 80's inspired! It's dated but extremely clean. The staff are lovely also. We spent most days relaxing by the poor which was a little cramped if busy. The hotel is a short walk from many great shops and restaurants.... More
