This was a good, four star hotel. The facilities were excellent with an good sized pool, well situated on the ground and a hot tub on the roof terrace with great views over Funchal. The hotel had a spa offering a range of treatments and a free sauna. The hotel had a number of areas where you could relax with a book. The staff were excellent and, because the hotel catered for an older clientele - no guests under 18 with an average age (I guess) nearer 50 - the place had a quiet ambience.
We had half board and the breakfasts were good although the evening meals were unadventurous and on the boring side.
The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed with tea and coffee making facilities. We had a sea view and enjoyed great views over the area.
As long as you were fit the walk into town was easy. However, if you have mobility problems this would be an issue. However, the hotel had good access to public transport - the local bus (24) stopped outside; however it only ran every hour.
