Just got back from a stay at the hotel. First the positives: the views from the seaview rooms and from the general areas of the hotel are spectacular! The clifftop pool is fantastic. The drinks in the bar were great. The room itself was quite average though. Stylish yes, but not finished to a standard that I expected. I find that, if you run a 'design hotel' then the finishing must be immaculate and the materials first class but this was not always the case: dark 'stripes' in the wall, the ceiling in the bathroom was messy, etc. The size of the room is very good, the bathroom is rather small (if you're 'big' then you can hardly sit on the toilet next to the washbasin - to clarify: I'm not 'big'). Some staff are wonderful (esp in the bar), some not so much. We stayed in 2 other hotels in Madeira on this trip and there the staff were brilliant. The thing that disappointed me was the food though. Breakfast was average. Also, the parking situation is horrendous!!
