My husband and I visited the Ocean Gardens in August 2013. It didnt disappoint! The views are incredible and thats what sells the hotel, staff are so welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The hotel is a cab ride/bus/shuttle service away from the main town centre (we did try and walk it but we dont recommend it!) however the bus is only 2 euros approx for a single to the town and the hotel offers a shuttle service twice a day. The drinks are expensive in the hotel, so we drank local beer which was 2 euro 50 cents. We went half board and there was a different choice everyday, the food was of a good standard, you can eat from the normal menu, but you pay extra for this. A continental buffet breakfast is served everyday and it has good choice and is fresh. The swimming pool area is very nice and the views are simply breathtaking, I have seen another review on here saying that no refreshments are available at the pool, however they do provide a telephone service so you can call down for whatever you would like. Ask for an ocean view room. From our balcony we could see the whole of funchal with the water to our left, one of the best if not the best view we've had from a hotel room. In the area we would recommend a boat trip out to see the sealife and also the cable cars. The views are what make this hotel!
