Our annual visit never fails to impress when met by the friendly reception team and this extends to all the staff in the restaurants and pool facilities. There has been considerable investment into the Spa facilities and Blue Lagoon pool area and these improvements add to the ambiance of rest and relaxation.
I would recommend booking on bed and breakfast as this will give you the choice of some excellent restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast choice will meet any need although I would like to see investment in new 'toasters' ! The A La Carte dinner menu could also do with refreshing as it has remained unchanged for three years or so. The new Bistro eating area would also benefit from a more varied selection off the same A La Carte menu.
I would recommend a visit to the glass bottomed viewing platform at Cabo Girao, an 1885ft drop to the sea below.
Stunning views across Funchal and the harbour await you when booking a side sea view and in June, firework displays every Saturday night.
Never disappoints and we look forward to returning next year.
