Just a word or warning Maderia has been hit by a very nasty sickness bug that is rife throughout the Island take extra care when visiting - we were sick for 3 days which totally ruined our holiday this year.

The evening buffet has a wide choice of meals as part of the package, or you can visit the other restaurants for which you get an allowance of 17 euros. Most... More

This time we just needed a break and felt Funchal was a safe bet as we knew we could have a relaxing time. We booked with Thomson as they had sensible flight times from Gatwick and we decided on the... More

Porto Mare Hotel is an excellent place to stay. Half way from the center offers a grand view of the ocean and of the hills around it. Excellent facilities... not to miss if you are traveling to Madeira Island.
