We stayed here for a week in June, staying in my parents time-share room, and were very pleasantly surprised. The locals we encountered were exceptionally friendly and welcoming and seemed to really love their island. The hotel has a relaxed, spacious feel with beautiful gardens and large attractive pools. the flowers, both at the hotel and all around the island, are absolutely stunning! There is a reasonable gym which my boyfriend used daily, and lots of loungers for relaxing by the pool. There are 2 well stocked book exchanges which is a nice touch. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was large and had a kitchenette area with fridge and hob and microwave, and a large bathroom with bath. The balcony had a fab view over one of the pools and looking out to sea - perfect for breakfast in the morning and also for watching the fireworks on Saturday night. The location is a 20 minute walk into town and there are plenty of nearby restaurants and a large supermarket within easy walking distance. The local bus service is very easy to use for going further afield. The island offers a lovely balmy climate perfect for relaxing by the pool but ideal for accessing all the things to do in Funchal and as a base to explore the island too. We would definitely consider returning.
