Having just returned from our first visit to Madeira, I can only say that the whole experience was wonderful. The hotel was beautiful with everything as described on line. The staff were very helpful at all times, the rooms were spacious and spotless. The buffet was excellent with a very large selection, beautifully cooked and presented. Alacart was exceptional. Infact the whole experience was excellent.
Although there was work being carried out at the harbour it was not an inconvenience, although you were aware it was going on. Guests were compensated for the inconvenience which was a bonus but we were very glad we did not change hotels, which was offered. This has been one of the best hotels we have stayed at. Just sorry we were not there for New Year, hopefully we will return for the new year celebrations in the near future.
