We have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay in the flame tree guest house, from our experience we found all the staff extremely helpful with nothing seeming to be too much trouble. We changed rooms mid way through our holiday to a room with a wonderful sea view and balcony, something which I personally would recommend booking in advance... More

Upon my arrival I am being informed that there has been some overbooking and the room with sea view that I had booked 2 months early for 7 nights was simply not available! They were "sorry" but they "couldn't do anything" so I should "go search for a room elsewhere". I honestly can't fathom how can such a thing happen... More

Having booked at this hotel for 3 nights, we arrived at reception to be told immediately that there was a problem with three rooms (no explanation offered) and we would be taken by taxi to their partner hotel in central Funchal. As my husband was somewhat unwell that day we didn't question the receptionist further other than ask if there... More

We have been here many times in the past, but this time we found new management (same owner), who are bringing the hotel, (guest house), up to speed. The public areas are currently undergoing extensive renovation and will be excellent when finished shortly. The rooms are tired, but function and will be next on the list for improvement. Food is...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and had a lovely time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They arranged a rental car for us which was delivered and picked up at the hotel. Our room was a bit too dark, but the new management is working hard at improving things. The food was lovely. It was like... More

A charming hotel, ideal for a relaxing break. The food is excellent and the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Beautiful sea views from the room. Ana makes some superb drinks, the highlight being "El Presidente"! The hotel is quiet and Funchal and the beaches are easily accessible by taxi.

A great location, close enough to the town and far enough away for peace and quiet. Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent food and a very suave cocktail bar that is well stocked - Anna was very friendly and made some great drinks for us!

This was my third visit but the first under new management. A lot of work is being carried out to improve the hotel and it all looks good. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the change in management is very apparent. Menu is short but the food is excellent and very good value (3 courses for €17.50).... More
