Spent 5 nights here in early June - it was a lovely and relaxing experience. The architecture of the hotel buildings is sympathetic to the beautiful garden setting and the superior room was very comfortable and spacious. Fabulous bathroom too! There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a replenished stock of biscuits and sweets supplied daily, also the fresh flowers were a nice touch. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast delicious. Any minor issues (they forgot to service our room one day and another day the loo flush got stuck on) were dealt with promptly and in a very friendly manner.
Set in the hotel zone (but away from the main drag) it's a short walk to some restaurants and the centre of Funchal is a 8 euro taxi ride away or a good 30 minutes walk. The hotel has it's own restaurant in a lovely setting with a small but creative menu.
The pool area is quite small with not many sun beds so did get a bit crowded on the rare occasion that it was actually sunny during our stay, but the hotel is a good base for touring the island as it has a car park and easy access out of the town.
