We booked a week at this hotel at the last minute and were not disappointed. The rooms were good and well appointed, the restaurant very good value and quality, bar and lounge comforatble, swimming pools and spa very enjoyable.
Located at the edge of the old town it was ideal for walking into Funchal and was also very close to the local bus routes and a miriad of alternative restaurants to eat at.
Having stayed here I wouldn't entertain I don't think I would stay anywhere else in Funchal as all other hotels appeared to be a good walk from tye centre and up a hill!
