My friends and I stayed here last week as we were over in Madeira to see out football team play. So it was 4 lads staying, so this has probably influenced my review a little as I do think it is a cood location and hotel for singles or people not wanting to spend much time in their rooms. If I was with my wife it would have probably been a little different.
The hotel is about a five mins walk to the sea front, on arrival we were greeted by the owner who had our keys ready and told us where our rooms were. So up to the rooms we went. I was suprised by the good size of each room, we had a fair sized bedroom, small bathroom with shower and a little patio area to sit and gaze up at the cable cars going above our heads! There was also a TV with a good selection of channels. The rooms were clean, and we had clean towels every day.
Due to the size of the bathroom and heat I would advise anyone choosing to stay here to take a bug spray or plug, as we had little midgies (flies) in ours, but nothing to worry us, just something to be aware of.
So we dumped our bags and as stated it was a lads break so we wanted to lock away our passports and get a drink. Again asking the owner about a safe he provided us one free of charge for the 4 days we were there... Great!!
There is a bar/ cafe on site which does cakes, snacks, chocs and more importantly beer! so we each had a large local beer (Coral) at 1 euro 80 each!! We then went off for a night out. To be honest we knew that the location was quiet and not very toristy... so if you are looking for night life this isn't for you. For us it was fine as we were over there with 1000 other Birmingham fans so we bumped in to lots of others in local bars etc... 1 decent bar was the Hole in One, all the others were mainly small taverns which again was fine!
Breakfast in the morning is as many cobs, jam and coffe as you want, so nothing to write home about, but more than enough for the price we paid!
The staff were always pleasant and happy to help. If I was going away for a short tip or sight seeing then I would stay here again, but if I wanted sun bathing and lounging by a pool then this hotel or resort would not be the choice!
Like I said in the title its good value for the price, we paid 12 euro a night, whilst a lot of other hotels had bumped up their prices as they knew an extra 1000 brummies were looking for some where to stay.
