Spent a week in December 2012 here looking for some Winter sun and found it. Great weather pretty much all year round means this is a great Winter destination. You can lie by the pool and swim in the heated pools even at this time of year and get a great tan. Hotel is advertised as 4 star and possibly just about gets there (bit dated) but the main advantage is the sister hotel which is just a few paces away and you can walk between the two via connecting pools and corridors. This means you get double the facilities, great pools (indoor and out), spa, restuarants, etc. I booked a suite which had two rooms and this was fine. Not as large as expected but adequate with great sea views. Try and get a higher floor facing the sea. You get nice balcony and can sit out and watch the sunset every evening. Loads to do in funchal and in Madeira and definetely you need to hire car and explore island, have fun in the casino and take the great cable car rides up into the hills. Would recommend Madeira and this location. Funchal is definetely the place to stay on the island and I would avoid other resorts unless you really want you escape, as I saw little to do in other places on the island.
