This swish modern hotel certainly delivers in terms of facilities - pool, spa, gym. And if you are prepared to lay out a bit extra on a "superior ocean view" room, you certainly get a spectacular view of the Atlantic from a sun terrace, complete with two loungers, that's almost as long as the bedroom itself. At breakfast, there is an excellent help yourself buffet, with a chef on hand to provide fresh omelettes.
The staff on reception are very pleasant and helpful, particularly. Over things like booking tours.
True, the hotel is about 3 kilometres from the centre of Funchal, but the local bus service into town is fairly frequent and good value, particularly if one buys the prepaid giro tickets that give unlimited travel on the municipal buses for a set period of days. In any case, a good variety of restaurants, cafés and bars is close by the hotel.
