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

Great location although it is actually 3.5 km ( 45 min) away from the city centre. On the plus side it is really close (5 min) to nice beaches and also to shopping facilities. A bus stop in front of the hotel allows to reach easily the city centre within 10 min. The hotel facilities are a bit old but... More

This Hotel isvery tired and while the staff are very helpful and pleasant,the rooms leave a lot to be desired like tea/ coffee making facilities and wifi,which is only available in the reception area. The Hotel also boasts of a heated pool,this is not so we were there in March, and I suspect the Atlantic was warmer. For those of... More

Unfortunately I was allergic to the carpets in the room so the hotel VERY kindly transferred me to the partner hotel, Alto Lido. The reception team where very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is absolutely amazing with a great view. If they spent some money doing the rooms up to current standards, this hotel would be a GEM in... More

As others have said it is definitely not 4*. Rooms clean and fittings functioned OK. Decor dated but old fashioned TV worked fine. Lots of storage.The location was good and the courtesy bus service was much appreciated. Pleasant walk into Funchal if a change from the bus wanted.The restaurant seemed too small for the number of people with tables pushed... More

This hotel is sold as a 4* but in reality it was 4* about 30 years ago. Today the rooms and the rest of the hotel look like something out of a B-rated movie. Everything is worn and somewhat dirty. The rooms are relatively large and they all have balconies, but the bathrooms, bed linen, pillows etc have been used... More

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.
