Stayed one week in March.Very clean rooms on 8th floor(junior suite)facing the pool with sun from 1pm.Breakfast had a good choice of bread,rolls,eggs,bacon,sausages,cereals etc. No luxaries,but plenty enough of choices. Had dinner in the restaurant 3 times. First time had the buffet(25E),but prefered the a la carte meny which was lovely.Reasonable priced,same as other restaurants (12-17Euro) Polite and attentive waiters.If you didnt finish your bottle of wine or water they would save it and it was served next day.We didnt pay extra for the kettle( mentioned by other guest previously).It was there on arrival.Also small fridge. Reception area was spacious with a couple of sofa groups.On 1st floor was a nice room to sit in too and with balcony for smokers outside.There was no smoking anywhere to be seen inside the hotel,glad to say.
Pools: no need to bring your own bath towels! They were provided for you free! Saves lots of space in your suitcase. Nobody went out early with towels to occupy sun beds! Bus into Funchal 1.80E.Taxi 5-6E.Or walk for about 15mins.Taxis have taxameter for within Funchal,but not for longer trips.Madeira is mainly for 50+or families,no discos or raving youngsters and hardly no crime .I wouldnt be afraid of walking alone at night on main streets. All in all: good value for money and will gladly stay there again!
