Stayed for 7 nights Bed & Breakfast on the 10th June from Bournemouth through Atlantic Holidays, on arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a glass of Orange Juice and check in was quick and easy, our room had a side sea view which I would say is definately worth paying the extra for, the room was spacious and clean, I did find the chairs on the balcony uncomfortable though. There was a fully stocked Mini Bar, safe, hairdryer and pool towels. The breakfast was delicious and you could have anything from fruit to a full english breakfast and everything in between, we did enjoy sitting outside on 2 occassions however the resident Seagull wasn't afraid to land on tables near! The outside infinity pool was nice and there was lots of space around for sunbeds, the only problem was it was really cold but once you were under it was fine. We did several trips through Atlantic including a best of the west, best of the east and also the cable car and toboggan which was well worth doing. The location was good, you could out of the hotel and down the hill (coming back up its really steep) to many restaurants, bars and shops including the Ritz which we had drinks and snacks at on a few evenings as they often had entertainment outside- the old town was a bit further about 25 minutes walk. We only had about 3 days of sunshine while we were away but this wasn't a problem as we spent the other days doing trips or explore the town, we also used the indoor pool which was wonderful and had several places where there were jets so it was like a Jacuzzi, there was also an ice room, sauna and steam room. There was a range of spa treatments which were available at reasonable prices and a small gym. Madeira attracts alot of older people and at 21 and my mum being in her early 40s we were both the youngest people in the hotel and on the flight, however this didn't bother us and we both loved the hotel and also Madeira, I would definately recommend people go there!
