Had a great week staying in this hotel. Our first trip to Madeira and most probably not our last. We chose the hotel because of the reviews, location and price...we were not disappointed. Although a fair distance out of Funchal the views of the city are superb. Don't think about walking into town as its safer and quicker to get the bus. The hotel has a very good restaurant where the staff were very helpful and friendly. Another highly rated restaurant, Zarco's is about half a mile down the road. The accommodation is spacious fresh and clean with maid service every day. The pool and gardens on the top floor are superb and make a wonderful place to finish the day. Our only negative comment is that there are no tea making facilities (this seems common in Portuguese hotels)...oh and watch out for the very painful one inch step in front of the reception desk which will catch you out if you have open toed shoes...ouch! Our only general advice is that our stay in Madeira was made so much better by hiring a car, we were able to explore the fabulous island in detail.
