Stayed half-board in a twin studio room on the 5th floor. It was spacious, clean & comfortable, with a mini-fridge, kettle, & small balcony with part-sea view. The room faced the inner hotel complex, overlooking the pools, & was quiet. The bathroom had a clothesline for swimsuits. There was a daily housekeeping service. The buffet meals were more than adequate, with a great variety, serving 2 excellent fish & 2-3 meat dishes every night, with plenty of vegetables & fresh fruit. Champagne was often available at the buffet breakfast. The changing area of the indoor swimming pool was not very nice, but the hotel is due refurbishment this year & it will well change for the better. There was nightly entertainment at the bar area. The staff were friendly & courteous. The hotel presents a glass of champagne & cake at dinner at birthdays & anniversaries, which is rather nice.
Yellow urban buses 1, 2 & 4 leave at frequent intervals from across the hotel for the town centre, & bus 48 to Monte, dropping you off right outside the hotel on the return. The town centre is a 30-45 mins walk turning left outside the hotel, passing through 2 beautiful parks, the first with great views of Funchal harbor. A few mins walk turning right from the hotel takes you to a pinga doce supermarket where you can pick up picnic supplies for island walks, tea/cofee/milk for your room, traditional bolo de mel & madeira wine. There are at least 2 companies in the shopping centre next door to the hotel offering island tours & walks, & several more along the walk to the town centre. There is also a convenience store to buy a bus card & load bus tickets at 1.3 euros each. The hotel is a pleasant enough one, & after the refurbishment, will be even better.
