We stayed here for 2 weeks in January, in a junior suite. We had 2 spacious rooms, nicely decorated and furnished, large comfy bed, great bathroom and double size balcony looking straight out to sea. This is a genuine 4 star hotel, with lovely facilities including super pool area and pretty gardens. Breakfast was good. and the view from the breakfast room was amazing. We only dined at the restaurant on-site once as we preferred to eat out in Funchal or other nearby towns. January seemed to be a very quiet time for the hotel and for the visitor attractions and restaurants.
The Ocean Gardens is located to the east of Funchal, well away from the busier 'hotel zone' on the west side of the city. Buses ran about hourly, always ran to time and the ride was unfailingly exciting! Once you've bought your first ticket (giro) you can then 'top it up' to reduce the price of each journey from 1.90 to 1.30 (enquire at bus station in Funchal). The hotel also runs a shuttle bus service into Funchal centre twice a day. We hired a car and enjoyed the challenge of driving on some of Madeira's mountainous roads whilst exploring the island. Most of the island can be accessed by bus service.
