Hotel is a little tired but the staff are all fantastic and totally make up for any short comings. Rooms are kept lovely and clean. Food is okay, some odd combinations but we're not starving. Having a great time and it's lovely going to sleep listening to the waves.

The room was very nice and we also had a small kitchen area which was great as we could make a cuppa whenever we wanted. The room was also spotless and the hotel staff were very accommodating and were always on hand if you needed any assistance i.e bus travel/ attractions etc in nearby Funchal. Would highly recommend.

Ab excellent value for money hotel on the outskirts of Funchal. Excellent food, friendly staff and clean, relaxing areas both inside and outside. Although not in the husstle of Funchal, there is a courtesy coach to and from the hotel to Funchal which runs everyhalf hour. Walking to the nearest village of Camera do Lobos along the seafront is very...

If you want a nice quiet hotel, with the roar of the Atlantic to invigorate you, this is the place. If you want nightlife, then go somewhere else.! All rooms face the sea. We wanted the former and it suited us very well. Staff are delightful. It's all inclusive food and wine. All quite palatable, and once you got the...

We had a room with sea view, this is lovely for looking out, but can be noisy at times when the sea is rough. (Not a lot you can do about this). Weather was good, only had rain on one day.New year fireworks in Funchal were spectacular. There is a kettle in the room,great for late night cups of tea!...
