We booked a last minute trip through Easyjet holidays and got a great deal In February half term 2013.
The hotel is opposite Reid's, perfect distance for a 15 minute walk to Funchal centre or the other way to the Lido area. For the price paid this hotel was a bargain!
The rooms are good, spacious and well cleaned every day. We had a garden view at the front of the hotel which was quiet (even though the lobby is outside we never heard any noise). You get your own mini kitchen which is brilliant, having a fridge was a great addition.
The pool is rather chilly, be prepared. However the pool area is lovely and the gardens surrounding it well maintained. There were plenty of sun loungers and the pool gets the daylight sun all day.
Breakfast is average, buffet style continental and hot choices.
The service from all staff is excellent, they speak many languages and are all smiley and helpful.
For the price we paid in the location we are extremely pleased. having stated at Reid's and The Cliff Bay previouslyI would highly recommend booking this hotel as it has everything the other more expensive hotels has for a cheaper price!
