We were looking for a reasonably priced week away in November and the bed and breakfast package we booked to Four Views Oasis was just what we were looking for.
We liked the hotel and although the weather was mixed we had a relaxing time, reading or sitting by the pool or walking to some of the local bars and cafes for coffee or lunch.
We had only booked breakfast at the Four Views Oasis but were very pleased with the selection available during the buffet style breakfast. There was a cook on hand to freshly prepare omelettes if you wanted one and there was a wide range of cold meats, cheese, cereal, fruit, etc. It was one of the best breakfast selections we had seen in a long while
The free hotel shuttle bus to Funchal although there is a cheap local bus which you can also use.
Very friendly staff
Meat night in the a la carte restaurant was very good. We tried the fish night as well but the choice was more limited.
Clean and comfortable rooms
Nice garden around the hotel and the walk along the promenade was very relaxing
A great local bar ‘Magos Mir’ was just round the corner - lovely coffee and good toasties at lunchtime
The hotel makes an effort by putting on entertainment in the evenings – usually a singer
Quick transfer – the main airport is about 15 minutes away
Not so good points
The tea bags, coffee sachets and milk so you could make a hot drink in the room were not replenished after the first day
The a la carte restaurant was only open on Tuesday (Fish night) and Thursday (meat night) – not much use if you bought the hotels 3 night meal package for €75 per person. A shame the hotel did not mention this when they sold us the package
Beds – not the most comfortable – my wife and I both woke up a few mornings with backache
After a half day visit to Funchal we were glad that we were staying at Canico. Although it was quieter than Funchal it was a nicer place for a relaxing week away.
As someone else mentioned the Four Views Oasis operates a scheme where you can opt not to have you room cleaned for either one day or 3 days over the weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). If you take part in the scheme you get credit of either €5 or €17.50 tp spend in the hotel bar. As there were just 2 of us in the room, and we are not that messy, we chose the 3 day weekend option and it worked out very well.
The Four Views Oasis is not a 5 star hotel but it was great value and we would be happy to go back there again.
