Great hotel in a great complex with the Porto Mare. The grounds and facilities are suberb and I would have to say that all staff where as helpful and cheerful as you could ask for. I would suggest that it is more than worthwhile to upgrade room to a Junior Suite as the extra space and kitchenette that comes with it are a great addition to an already well fitted room. All the faclities are shared with the Porto Mare hotel in the same grounds and this means everyone has a choice of 4 dining experiences, 2 outdoor and 2 indoor/ourdoor pools with as many sunbeds as one is likely to need. No need to reserve as always some available..The breakfasts that are normally included with the booking are plentiful with a very varied choice of foods and again can be had at either restaurant in the Eden Mar or Porto Mare. (small walk berween the two buildings either through the passageway that joins the two buildings or via the gardens). The hotels are have available a flexible dining arrangement for dinner if you require, obviously at an extra cost.
The surrounding area has an abundance of good restaurants that should satisfy most requirements. The only downside to some will be the steepness of the hill, albeit a short hill. when you leave the hotel but only those with severe medical and physical conditions would find this a real struggle. The hotel runs a courtesy bus into Funchal usually every hour but to walk is not onerous and only one fairly easy gradient when leaving Funchal. It would take on average 25mins at a comfortable pace. We hired a car and parking at the hotel was free. Obviously you would need to decide between car hire, trips or doing your own thing but again just ask at the Hotel. They have an abundance of information and help.
