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

We had a room on the 8th floor with magnificent sea views and a balcony, There was a TV and fridge in the room as well as air conditioning,even though the middle of October this was good to have. The room was cleaned to perfection every day. Buffet breakfast was served from 730-10 and was quite adequate, It was really... More

a little bit old hotel and you can feel it, but great location beside the ocean, wonderful ocean view from the restaurant and the swimming pool place, and rooms from that side of the building, unforgettable ocean noises in the night, the worst thing was the breakfast, during a 2 week stay every day food was the same, after a...

We booked a room in this hotel because he close to shore and has 4 stars. The place was great, on the beach, close to shopping centre Forum. Service was also good. We got all explanations and all necessary information about city Funchal an island Madeira. But the hotel by itself - real below all standards. It was 4 stars... More

A nice hotel to stay. With a good swimming pool to relax, and a nice view to the sea. You can stay with our kids without problem. Enjoy the stay. You can enjoy also have some tours on Madeira. At night there are always nice parts, like folklore, the traditional music. See you in Madeira ...
