We had a lovely one-week stay here, our first visit to Madeira. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Wifi in the room as well as the lobby would have made it better! We didn't find the building work on the seafront a problem as we prefer to spend most of the day out anyway, and at this time they were not using pile-drivers or pneumatic drills.
We liked being next to the Old Town and found many good restaurants close at hand. The quirky street/door art added an extra dimension. The Market is well worth a visit. The hotel is also close to the cable car, from where we thoroughly enjoyed visits to the Botanic Gardens and the Tropical Gardens.
