Just returned from the Casino Park Hotel. This is a very large hotel with plenty of grounds around the hotel. The staff were excellent from the reception to the waiters were all first class. The room cleaners were not as good. There was dust under the room furniture and around the picture frames the carpet could also had done. with a clean.
We stayed b&b and the breakfast was very good with a choice to suit all ,except the coffee which was almost undrinkable. Looking at the daily menu I thought the evening meal was very expensive at nearly £30 for a 3 coarse meal when there were plenty of excellent places to eat, some just around the corner (Bernini Restaurant) where you would get 2 main coarse for £30.
The hotel has very spacious reception and bar areas. The indoor heated pool with steam and sauna rooms is one of the best I've seen in any hotel.
The hotel is a 15 min stroll to the town if it was flat, but there is a hill down to the town and would make it very difficult for people with walking problems. The best solution is a bus pass which you can purchase to cover 3/5/7 days.
Would I stay at this hotel again? Yes, if it were in a different country as I feel you have to be a mountain goat with all the hills, slopes, steps and uneven cobble streets to enjoy Funchal
Just a note on Funchal. At the present the whole area around the sea front is being ripped up.
It is very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation in that area.
