I can only re-iterate the other comments from January 2008. The noise from the building work from the next door hotel was totally unacceptable. You really could not get away from it ANYWHERE in the hotel. There were some lovely gardens and seating areas to eat or drink outside or by the pool-the weather was lovely for January but all to no avail as you simply had to leave the hotel after breakfast and stay away till dark!
The best day off the hoilday was Sunday when we could finally relax by the pool , have lunch, a drink and a swim and look forward to coming home on the Monday.
It was our first visit to Madeira and we loved the island, and the January sun but would not return to this hotel. I feel we should have been warned by the agents 'First Choice'. We registered a complaint with the very helpful rep and also wrote to First Choice immediately on our return on 14th January but as yet have had no reply. The location of the hotel wasn't ideal, though our room was lovely and the staff and service very good.All in all a disappointing holiday.
