This is a beautiful hotel. Room was very clean, modern and spacious, ideal when travelling with a 1 1/2 year old. We had a large balcony overlooking the pool and onto the sea, which was lovely. Pool area was lovely and never overly busy when we visited in Aug 12 for a week. No problems getting a sun bed, particularly at children's area of pool which was practically empty. Weather was glorious and it was an ideal spot just to chill out and relax. We went B&B, so can't comment on food. The breakfast choice was nothing great, with a relatively small selection each morning laid out in a rather small space.
Location wise, the hotel is in a quiet area, and the area itself is very hilly. Amenities and places to eat and drink weren't too far a walk, however the hills made it a bit of a struggle in the heat and with a pram. This is definitely something to consider when choosing a holiday in Funchal. It is beautiful and a lovely place for a break, but not ideal for prams!
No complaints at all about the hotel. It fitted the type of holiday we were looking for exactly. Lovely accommodation, beautiful surroundings In a quiet location. Just the thing for a sunshine break away from it all. Would highly recommend, but not if you are looking for entertainment in abundance!
