Hi, Just back from a week at this hotel. As previous reviews yes, its tired, yes it needs work done, and yes, we have all stayed in better. Most people are here for a couple of hundred quid each, and for that you get a week on this lovely island, what's wrong with that? Be aware that the hotel is...

We found our room very clean with kitchen and deck overlooking the sea. The staff was attentive and friendly. The hotel is one or a 3 hotel complex with access to indoor and outdoor pools. Breakfast was very good. Only drawback was the stiff bed.

Drably institutional hallways. The bed was okay, if a bit hard. No trash can in the main room, only in the bathroom and little kitchenette, but that one had a cover that the foot pedal didn't open, and it was only about a foot high. If you don't speak Portuguese, speak very slowly to the front desk personnel. Their English...

We booked and payed for a triple room in this hotel through a travel agency, 3 months ahead of time. The rates were inviting and the overall quality seemed acceptable. Arriving at the checking in desk of the hotel we were surprised to find out it was complete. The solution: We were bumped over to another hotel (Estrelicia) which is...

Very authentic 70th hotel. You get what you pay for and it is OK if you got a good deal. 3rd Row from the sea and close to the lido so position is nice and lots of restaurants close by. Swimming pools and gym included.

There's no doubt this hotel is well overdue a complete refurbishment so expect things to be a bit worn round the edges, but the staff are very pleasant and helpful and the place is kept clean. It's in a great location for restaurants, bars, shops and car hire (we used the car hire opposite the hotel with no problems). We...

Let me start with the positives. The hotel has a great location very close to some of the best restaurants in Funchal. All the staff are very nice and do their best to help where they can. The rooms come with a small kitchenette which contain a full size fridge with ice box, microwave and two ring electric hot plate....

This hotel is one of the nicest looking ones we have seen in Maderia for its price. We did half board and the meals on the whole have not been too bad until the end of the fortnight when it came down to the choice of fish or chicken! The accomodation is basic for an Aparthotel hot plates fridge and...

We stayed here as part of a package with Thompson and it was ok. There is nothing to fear staying here at this hotel. It is quite old and dated but we found it to be clean enough and everything worked. We stayed on the 10th floor and had a lovely view of Funchal. If you read all the other...

You get what you pay for and if like us you book a cheap deal you can't expect a plush hotel. However, a lick of paint in communal areas and rooms would improve the appearance. Bathroom was adequate but needed re grouting. Kitchenette was basic but we only used the facilities to make hot drinks. We were on floor 10...
