We stayed at this hotel in july and had a great experience.Clean,nice and friendly staff. We booke half board. The meal was good, every evening another theme. The facilities are ok and clean. Great view from the hotel to the Atlantic Ocean and Cabo Giro. The Island is fantastic, lots of vegetation, flowers, etc.

Good hotel with great rooms and nice location. Stayed here for two weeks. The staff was friendly and service minded. Excellent parking for 5 Euro a day. One air-conditioning unit in each room. Great balcony with Seaview. The Internet connection only works in the lobby, the pool is rather tiny. The bathrooms are big and made for disabled persons.

I booked a suite here for two weeks in July, I was put in a standard room on the first night and after complaining was told no suites available for two nights. I ate once at the hotel and was put off, the food tasted like a microwavem meal. I'd probably advise someone to stay elsewhere, although it wasn't the... More

Everything in this hotel is extremely clean. The pool area is immaculate and well kept. The range of Goodson offer for breakfast is both varied and of good quality. I am currently sat outside and the ambience is very restful. The prices and comparable to other places in Madeira. A great place to unwind and relax

The apartments were ideal. There was nothing to complain about at all, we couldn't have been happier with the accommodation or the staff who were brilliant. The only thing and it's not a complaint the gym is only open Monday to Friday, so I had to make other plans for Saturday and Sunday.

Alright lets start; The hotel is situated a bit outside the city center of Funchal. Still that is not to be considered negative, the location is great and the view stunning. There is nothing like taking your morning coffee or evening beer with the view from the pool area (building C) into the great vast Atlantic Ocean. Should you need... More

It is quite large complex. The hotel consists of three buildings (building A has suites with kitchenette, building B appartments, and builind C rooms). All rooms and appartments have balconies. I stayed in building A which means that I had to walk a lot from the room to the pool and restaurant. Hotel is located in an area with many... More

Three night weekend break with my mum. Hotel is well located about five/ten minutes from centre of Funchal. Our room was spacious and quiet, with big bathroom and walk in shower.

Nice buildings (3), quite recent, nice rooms (double) and good suites, both with balcony. Staff is nice, although it's not admissible that some of them don't speak a word of Portuguese (Madeira was a part of Portugal the last time I've checked), of those some don't even speak proper English. It's also not admissible that all the signs at the... More
