Big, comfortable rooms. Breakfast in every style. Situated 40 minutes by walk on the ocean promenade from the center of Funchal. 5 min by bus or taxi. During windy days the noise of crushing waves remainds you are in the meedle of the Atlantic :)

We paid slightly more to upgrade to a Junior Suite which was located on the 2nd floor - WOW - talk about a... More

Very nice all round, mostly German guests. Difficult to fault. All the rooms have seafacing balconies. The cafe/ restaurant at the bottom - turn left - third along, yellow tables - is where the locals eat, very good and cheap. Nice walk to Camara Lobos to the right, nice little place, watch out for loads of dog mess in the... More
