We stayed here half board for a week at the end of October. It was a wonderful place to stay. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Funchal. 2 minutes to the cable car, actually in the old town right by a super mix of cafés and restaurants.
The staff in the hotel were all so friendly and helpful. Great facilities, lovely bar, very warm indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool to help you cool off when sunbathing.
The 10 euros per day subsidy more than compensates for the inconvenience of the harbour work. Can't wait to go back once the harbour is complete. It'll be even better
