“Standard of Hotel”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Having just spent Christmas and New Year 2013 in this hotel, it is classed as 4 star and whilst the ground floor public areas were excellent and staff very willing to help with any questions, the room in my opinion fell below the standard required such as there were no tea or coffee facilities available in the room, the bathroom did not have little luxuries such as bars of soap or shower gels but did have dispensers on the walls. The bar on the ground floor opened at 10.00 in the morning BUT closed at 11.00 pm in the evening, what hopes we had of celebrating the new year at the bar at midnight were dashed.

We spent the evening here half board for my husbands birthday treat. The receptionist was lovely and gave us both a warm welcome. I was impressed with the refurbishment it was very nice indeed and the photographs didn't do it justice. The indoor pool area was stunning and the outdoor pool was very nice also.
We were allocated a twin room overlooking the sea and the view was amazing and were not disturbed by the traffic.
The half board was such good value we thoroughly enjoyed the 'show cooking' and there was such a choice for breakfast, full English, pancakes and omelette cooked to order, fresh fruit etc. All the staff were so nice. Thank you all very much.

What a good find this hotel was.
We stayed there from 4 November until the 18 November.
Very clean hotel, friendly staff, we had a sea view, did not hear traffic from the road at night, the traffic subsided at about 10.30 and did not start again until about 8.30, but the road was not that busy. Keep the sliding balcony door closed and the aircon on when sleeping and you will sleep like a babe.. Excellent food at breakfast and in the evening. Quite a few people only took the bed and breakfast option. what a" mistakaa to makaa."
The half board option was only about £45 per person for 2 weeks,(you could not even buy a pizza for this money, its a no brainer), and the choice of food in the evening was unbelievable 6 or 7 courses all of excellent quality and variety, especially liked the "show cooking" option where you can have fish or meat steaks cooked to order at no extra cost, I do not know how they do this for the money. Go for the half board option with out a doubt, my only problem is how to get rid of the 6KG of weight I put on whilst there despite doing lots of walking/ exploring.!!!!.
Temperature was around 23 degrees, we had rain for about 2 minutes on one day only.

The hotel is well positioned for a gentle stroll into the town centre or the Marina to watch the world go by

Both pools were spotlessly clean and nothing was to much trouble from the staff.

With out a doubt we will be back to Madeira next year and we will be staying at the Quinta Do Sol.
Cannot wait to go back.

Alan & Angela; Gloucester UK.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view its stunning. Do go for the half board option it's a treat.

I stayed here with my daughter just ahead of fourth of July. The hotel is for over 16 only, so no young families. It was very quiet when we stayed and we did not see many other guests. The position is above the coast, and you can reach many of the tourist areas of Funchal on foot if you want to spend the day wandering. It is well placed for the bus routes, which might be a less tiring option, as well as the airport bus. We found the pool and spa very relaxing and not at all busy or noisy. Breakfast was good (hot and cold buffet), but we ate out at lunch and dinner.

We took the bed + breakfast option. It was early evening when we first turned up and we were told that the restaurant would be 25 Euro pp + drinks. I see from other reviews that half-board is hardly more expensive than breakfast only, so go for that option if you want to eat there.
There is a perfectly good selection of restaurants across the bridge on the right and we went for that option instead. Digressing, the best restaurants we tried were one on the corner opposite Pub Number Two and the Indian on the the first floor opposite the tiny supermarket.

Breakfast is a buffet with a decent choice, some cold and some warm.

They have parking space for around 12 cars underneath, Luckily there were only around 10 cars using them during our stay.

When booking the room I decided not to pay extra for the sea view but they put us on that side anyway and - as others have said - it gets a bit loud (traffic). Sleeping with the window open meant a fairly strong wind blowing in throughout the night, we also caught some when someone smoked outside or on their balcony. Occasional Mosquitos, hopefully none were carrying Dengue fever. The a/c is definitely an alternative, very quiet.
There is live music on the ground floor until 22:00 most nights so you might want to avoid the first floor if - for example - you have kids.
We also heard neighbouring rooms rather better than we would have wished.

There are two pools outside, one is in a kind of alcove and you need a bathing cap (provided?) to use that. We saw a fitness room.

The city center is 1.5 - 2km but we walked that a couple of times.

Room Tip: The garden-side will be quieter, maybe second-floor upwards.
