As it was my first visit to Funchal, this hotel was perfect in so many ways. The room(117) was well appointed and overlooked the sea, the buffet breakfasts had an extensive choice, and the staff were all pleasant and helpful. As I was staying half-board, I did not make use of the kitchenette included, which had a hot-plate, fridge, plates,...

We had a pleasing stay at this hotel. It is very popular and it proved difficult to get a room to match our flights. The location is great if you want downtown Funchal in a quiet location. It is close to lots of restaurants, local transport, city centre and the cable car. The communal areas are spacious and comfortable. The...

This is an excellent hotel and the outstanding advantage for us was its location. It is situated in the heart of Old Funchal, close to the many excellent restaurants and a flat walk along the promenade to the many attractions that Funchal has to offer. We found the hotel spotlessly clean in all areas including our room which was well...

We haven't been lucky enough to get one on either visits. Situated...

We like the atmosphere and location of this hotel, close to the old town.The staff is very kind and the breakfast buffet includes all we need and more. The neighborhood to the old city, the market, the harbour promenade and the center of Madeira is excellent.

What a wonderful hotel. Another relaxing week in the sun with staff we have come to know well. Their welcome is sincere. We feel so comfortable here and have already booked a return visit. Madeira is a wonderful island and with this hotel as your base you will return again and again.

The hotel is situated between the edge of the old town and the esplanade. Outside the hotel gates is an area where locals gather to play cards and exercise their dogs. The terrace and garden to the front of the hotel lead out onto the pedestrian esplanade - there is no passing traffic, the hotel grounds are gated and only...
