Having booked this as part of a package deal we weren't too sure what to expect. As a few people had commented on noise levels on the lower floors, we decided to book a superior room, and were on the 9th floor. The room was huge, spotlessly clean, and had amazing views over Funchal. We learned after we arrived that the superior room also entitled us to free admission to the spa. We used the spa on all but one morning - having a leisurely swim, and a visit to either the hot tub or the sauna; it was beautifully clean and well-maintained, and we had it completely to ourselves for the first hour after it opened at 10am. I would willingly have paid 5 Euros for the privilege. Yes, the hotel is on a steep hill, but just about everywhere is on a steep hill in Madeira, and we wouldn't have had the views at sea level; - we bought bus passes, which we also used for transport around town. The room was spotlessly clean and serviced every day. The staff were friendly and helpful - most of our fellow guests were German, but the staff were equally adept in English and German (and presumably Portuguese). Breakfast was busy on some mornings, although included everything you could think of, including wine. All in all, the hotel was so nice that we were tempted not to go out at all! We didn't use the restaurant in the evenings - preferring to eat out in town; there are plenty of reasonable options within easy walking distance. We also took instant coffee and tea bags with us - there was a supermarket ten minutes walk away for milk, biscuits, water, etc. The only complaint was the slow computers, but who goes on holiday to use computers anyway?
