Our first visit to Funchal was spent at this hotel and we were not disappointed. We upgraded to the "Romatic Package" which included a superior sea view room on the third floor (room 2304). It was huge! The balcony was a good size and had sun until 7.00pm. However what we really enjoyed was the 170 sq meter private roof terrace that went with the room. The views over the garden/swimming pool/ sea were beautiful. Breakfast was a feast on its own and the two meals we had in the Restaurant Med were first class (if a little expensive). The facilities were excellent and we enjoyed our complementary massage in the spa which did not seem over busy. The only complaint I might have is the lack of help with luggage to and from our room. Would recommend to anyone.
