Maderia is a lovely place. lots to see, but the hotel was a disappointment. The bathroom was crawling with little ants, and crockroaches. There was no grab rail in the bathroom over the bath and it was very awkward in getting out of the shower. The towels were like poor quality kitchen towels. The carpet in the bedroom was very...

My wife and I have just returned from a very pleasant stay at this hotel. We paid a total of £620 for a 2 week stay, bed and breakfast and had a great time. Although the hotel is a little tired the staff and the cleanliness made up for this. Having no air con, we rang down to Reception to... More

This hotel was great for us as we only wanted somewhere to put our weary bodies after a day of sight seeing. It was basic but clean. The reception staff were lovely. Breakfast wasn't top class but there was something suitable to eat and drink. This place is also very central to everything with lots of restaurants close by. Would... More

arrived 5 September for our first Madeiran holiday. echo earlier reviews, the hotel is a little drab but was fine for our needs. Staff are pleasant enough, always spoken to, never ignored. With no aircon I was grateful for a 7th floor room which gave us decent views and allowed us to leave the balcony door open overnight. We were... More

Location is at the bottom of three sister hotels, on a steep incline. Most amenities are down hill, so lots of return trips up steep hills. No air-conditioning in the rooms, got uncomfortable as temperatures climbed to 41 degrees for several days, combination of winds and forest fires. You do have a basic kitchen and fridge if you want to... More

We have just got back from a week at the Buganvilia. It is basic, but very clean. Breakfast was good, apart from the chipped cups, hotel staff need to realise this is unhygienic. We had a great view from our balcony. One of the Female reception staff was fairly curt and offish when I asked about the sky bar at... More

no aircon, no fan in the rooms either. Shower screens that didn't fit properly so water ran all over the floor. Floors that don't fit together properly. Mould in the bathroom. Paintwork badly marked and dirty. Hole in the wall behind the bed (looked like the previous occupants tried to dig their way out). Everything looks tired and worn. No... More

No aircon in bedroom!!! Whole hotel is old, tired and shabby. Clean enough though. Reception staff were good but other staff were grumpy. Needs a bar at its own pool. Breakfast was edible, lots of choice but not great. One broken toaster is not enough.
