We went as an extended family group for a week's all-inclusive Easter holiday- 2 'superior sea view suites' for me & my husband and my parents, plus one regular suite for my teenage children. A very pleasant hotel, well-situated although our views of the sea were definitely interrupted by other hotels (especially one very large 5* star hotel!) and a...

We stayed for a week, all inclusive with our 3 year old son. Hotel staff were great, all the staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating. 25 minute walk into Funchal, we walked each way but there are bus stops right outside of the hotel. All inclusive was ideal for us with a small child. Evening meal consisted of three...

Spent a week in this refurbished hotel, lovely and clean and the staff were, on the whole, friendly and helpful. The pool area and staff were great and our lunch and snacks out there were good.Sadly the restaurant let the place down. The staff seemed subdued and lacked any sense of enthusiasm. We were never offered the chance of a...

Great location, on flat area near the lido, so easy walking all around. Bus service just outside the hotel to take you into the old town, where you can browse the old town atmosphere, visit the fruit and flower market, or take the cable car up the mountains and enjoy the superb views. Lots of organised trips on offer to...

Hotel was not too busy so service great. Towels given at pool, two of them. Everything done by staff was with a smile, it was no bother for them to bring drinks over. Only downside to all inclusive was relatively early end of this at 10pm. Otherwise what a great hotel to use

We have recently returned from a week's holiday in Madeira, booked online through Thomson/TUI, and would like to say what a lovely hotel it is. All the staff are courteous but friendly, and very helpful. We were in an 11th floor suite which meant we had plenty of room and also far reaching views from our balcony. The food choice...
