We have often stayed at the Miramar but this time (late March 2012) we were given an excellent room in the Village. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
The staff are friendly and most helpful. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice. The Fountain Bar is a very pleasant place to have an evening drink. Our room was very spacious with a long balcony that afforded us a sea and mountain view. The room was well maintained with good facilities. The swimming pools are very good and the gym has adequate facilities. We recommend Luigi's Restaurant which is part of the hotel, for very good Italian food. The hotels are in an excellent location opposite Reids only a short walk from the centre of Funchal. We will continue to visit the Miramar/Village Hotel.
