We thought this hotel was in a good location and our room was clean and had a lovely view. Room 1026
However I would say if your room is at the lower front of the building it could be very noisy with traffic passing on a busy road.
The breakfast was good although the staff (6) seemed more interested in talking than clearing the tables and replenishing the food island.
Indoor pool area and water not very warm.
Away from the hotel three things to be aware of.
1 Avoid the usual 'rip offs' ' when hiring a car at the airport - I used HERTZ -- they need masks like bandits usually wear!
2 Be prepared to pay for overpriced drinks when eating out.
3 Don't bother with The Yellow Bus Tour they advertise a 20 minute service but take out most of the service in the afternoon we waited 50minutes, commentary is rubbish. Better idea - use the free bus from the hotel and get a day ticket on the local buses from Funchal -- cheaper and more frequent.
