“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a lovely hotel with loads of attention to detail. The whole complex is in top condition and spotlessly clean. It was very quiet when we stayed, and appeared a little soulless at times, but I guess that's the price you pay for a top quality hotel. The breakfast was very good indeed - extras that you normally need to request (soya milk and yoghurt, skimmed milk, porridge) were all provided as standard, as was just about every other breakfast food you can name. The pools are excellent, and towels are provided at both indoor and outdoor pools so no need to take your own unless you intend to go to the beach. Nothing compares to lying in the sun by the infinity pool, with all the comforts of a pool area but with the Atlantic crashing on the rocks only a few metres from your feet. Bliss! The restaurants on the complex (including the 'Irish' pub) looked a bit bland and uninviting, but we had opted for B&B and I would heartily recommend this as there is a good selection of reasonably priced restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk.

Quality place, and the staff are excellent, very trustworthy and hardworking. A credit to their employers... Only stayed B n B because we like to explore but the breakfast buffet is excellent... A very stylish complex and a great place to be. The staff are wonderful... I left my wallet on a table in Velvet Piano Lounge one night and within a minute I had a call in my room to tell me....if that member of staff had not being doing his job that night, by not going over to clean the table etc and taking a note of my room number and using his initiative I would of been a very poor holidaymaker! The rooms are cleaned EVERY DAY, views great, Spa staff excellent, pool staff too... Never saw any member of staff doing nothing the whole time we were there.. If they weren't dealing with staff they were maintaining the place or trying to improve it! Would stay there again...

Just back from a week in the fab CS Madeira hotel, and cannot recommend this hotel enough, the staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was plentiful and included everything from bacon, pancakes, fresh fruit to meats and danish pastries. The pool area was large enough to accomodate all the beds and there was always plenty to choose from, 2 infinity pools were just pure bliss and the views from our room on the 5th floor amazing. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary while there and they left a bottle of champagne and chocolate cake in our room on the day. really nice touch. The bed were huge and very comfortable, the room was excellent in size with a double bed, desk and chair, couch and sofa chair with good size balcony wiht lovely views. The only negative thing i could say about this hotel is the price of drinks / ice -cream but it's typical of a 5 star resort, €2.20 for cornetto and €5 pint of beer while it's only €3 in the Irish bar (O'Briens) located on site. overall this would not stop me for returning, the location is excellent, the Lido area is only 5 mins walk, although beware there are a number of steep hills...don't pack the high heels ... i'll doubt you'll wear them. 2 resturants that i would recommend a visit while there are the Italian at the back of Porto Mar hotel in Lido, and Beef & Wines, both hotels are just a 5 min walk from the hotel. I will be back and would without a doubt stay again in this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room above the 5th Floor, reception is on the 4th floor. rooms above this have stunning vi...

Have just returned from 7 days spent at the CS Madeira Atlantic Resort & Sea SPA. On arrival staff could'nt have been more welcoming and helpful.Our room was on the 7th floor with a sea view room which was well worth the difference as the view was superb.Breakfast buffet were excellent with an amazing variety.Facilities really good,bars,gym and spa(Sadly did not get to try out) Lots of restaurants and bars around, with two bars to recommend O'Briens on the site of the CS Madeira Atlantic Resort & Sea SPA and The Hole in One on the main road opposite the Hotel.Very convenient for Funchal either walking in or catching the bus on the main road.

Room Tip: Can recommend the Sea View rooms - High Floor

Have just spent 7 days at this hotel and it was our fourth stay here. On arrival staff were very welcoming , As we were returning customers we had a large bowl of fresh fruit delivered to our room shortly after arrival. Our room on floor 3 with seaview was spacious and very comfortable. The facilities at this resort are excellent . Two very large infinity pools overlook the antlantic. The buffet breakfast is great. The restaraunts within have varied menus particularly Mamma Mias with great food at reasonablly good prices. Obriens Irish bar is a great place to drink and the bar staff are very friendly, Hotel is ideally located with some excellent although pricey restaraunts on the main Estrada . You will be spoilt for choice. This is an excellent Hotel very modern and comfortable . We will definately return here in the future.

The hotel is one of the best options in Funchal if you are after best quality, first line and own beach and spa. It is located very conveniently as well, within walking distance to both city center and Lido area and promenade. Lots of restaurants and bars around. Not too far from shopping center Forum Madeira as well. The rooms are very modern and spacious and most have sea view which is absolutely stunning. Very good bed, true king-size, good size bathroom, very modern and clean. The hotel has probably the biggest private beach in the area, with lots of sun-beds and two infinity salt-water pools. There are stairs to the sea, if you want to swim there as well. The hotel spa is very good, and there are also sauna, Turkish bath and an indoor pool with various hydro-massage areas, which I would highly recommend especially to relax after levadas walks. Good variety of choice for breakfast, nice Italian restaurant called Mamma Mia, open 9-23, if you are too lazy to go out somewhere. The only negative point I can think of if that non-smoking floors are very strangely designated, for example, our room was on 9th floor, which was non-smoking, other non smoking floors were 7 and 5, as much as we could get, while floors 8 and 6 were smoking. And such arrangement basically kills the whole idea, because if someone smokes on the balcony right below yours (or above), you can feel it as much as if someone was smoking next door. It would really make the place much better, if non-smoking floors are grouped somehow.

Room Tip: Sea view is totally worth it, highly recommended!

Sorry but totally disagree with you. We have just spent 10 fantastic days at
CS Madeira and only fault I have is the awful hair dryer! We are over 60 but
plenty of young couples there with children who loved the food. There was water
and wine glasses on table so what is your problem? Do not let Daisy put you off
this fantastic hotel as they catered really well for children, especially the food. We got
friendly with lots of couples with young children and they really impressed with hotel and
food and facilities. We are going back next year.
