Arrived early and when we checked in was taken straight away to our room 9/11. Huge terrace and very well equipped. Big bed, large bathroom, lounge and a kitchenette To get up in the morning and see the terrace bathed in sunshine magical. Excellent housekeeping fresh towels everyday everywhere spotless. The food was good waiters always smiling and helpful. Reception team exceptional, very helpful especially with taxis and printing of the Passenger Locator Forms PFL. There was nothing that we didn't like about the hotel, good position although a good walk into Funchal (25minutes) a word of caution going through Passport Control in the airport only one desk open that led to very long queues irate passengers and a late take off much to the Pilots displeasure. All in all a lovely hotel, full of lovely staff only too willing to help, would gladly go back

Hotel's Favorite
After such a long time it was fantastic to arrive here, we paid for sea view on 7 floor, view is amazing. Everything here ticks the boxes. Comfortable beds clean spacious room. Carla on reception really helped us with all the documents we needed to print for our return to uk. Very covid safe in restaurant, great selection at breakfast Lenine always there with cheerful smile. And Serita and Fatima at the pool bar keeping us topped up with beer. Drinks are very reasonable prices. Must say this is the best hotel we have stayed at. Thank you all the staff for our wonderful holiday xx

The hotel is spotless, covid rules were followed 100%. All staff are exceptional, they are all on the same page and are 100% on the ball. They communicate with each other and are a successful team. We were upgraded to a higher floor then there was a leak in the shower and we were immediately given the choice of two suites. Absolutely beautiful. The hotel is spotless. The only thing I would say is the buffet breakfast and dinner isn't really a 5 Star. Food is fine but to see the previous nights breaded chicken and tuna salad as an offering at breakfast isn't my idea of acceptable. My daughter is a fan of fresh orange juice but the One on the buffet tasted like squash. Not drinkable. The Italian night the pizzas were def frozen. Perfectly cut out base and the little fork pricks on the back and zero flavour again is not acceptable. The hotel is in a fabulous location. I was surprised that the door to the sea front and promenade from the swimming pool deck was only available to disabled guests (I did ask) and you use your key card. It cuts out the incredibly steep hill either side of the hotel that you have to use otherwise. I had a heart attack at the end of June walking is a high part of my recovery which is good but I had to stop halfway walking back up the hill everytime we wandered down to the sea and promenade. Which we did daily. We stayed 4 nights and I'm glad it wasn't 7 nights because we tired of the buffet dinner. We used the al a carte once which was nice bit the fondue needed 24hrs notice bit the menu doesn't state this. We had lunch out on the promenade and used the pool restaurant for one lunch which was lovely. Cocktails we're too strong to drink so had to ask for very normal measures.

Hotel spotless. All Covid rules in place. Couldn’t fault it at all. Lovely hotel with excellent staff. Would definitely recommend if you just want a relaxing holiday. Plenty of bars n restaurants close by. All very quiet but obviously due to the pandemic.
