Situated on the seafront ,with magnificent views. In the old town of Funchal,which apart from the area around the Cathedral is by far the most interesting,with lots of very good restaurants to choose from. Very well appointed hotel,tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean,comfortable and modern. The staff were very helpful and the food [we were only B&b] was excellent .The choice for the buffet breakfast was amazing and of very good quality.
We were told about the work on the seafront construction work before we went but it wasn't any way as bad as we thought it might have been. In fact we found it all very interesting and as we were out most of the day ,it hardly affected us.
All in all a great week's holiday . We wished we had booked for a fortnight!
