We have just returned from a very relaxing week's holiday here. Before writing this review, I read the more negative reviews to see if I'd missed something, as we both thoroughtly enoyed our stay. A few people appeared concened about the steep hill into town. It took no more than 15 minutes walk to the Old Town. Granted, the climb back is steep for about 500m, but is quite do-able if you are of average fitness, and there are numerous buses that stop very close by. The no 15 runs about every hour, and till quite late, and there are other buses too. We didn't use a taxi once. There isn't too much for children here, but those who were staying seemed perfectly happy. Didn't try the wi-fi....I'm on holiday, but if you were to need access, I suppose it might be an issue. I personally didn't care. I read some reviews that complained about lack of choice at breakfast. This bewildered me...I couldn't see what else would be needed? The gardens are beautiful, the staff are discretely attentive, the reception staff are very helpful and efficient. If you need entertainment, DVDs, spa etc, then there are many hotels in Funchal that can provide these, but for our tastes, this hotel was the best we have stayed in. We have stayed in the Cliff Bay, which was nice enough and had these extra features that some reviewers felt were missing, but a little impersonal. Here, we were greeted by our names.
