This is a lovely hotel with spacious, well equipped rooms, good food, excellent service and a fantastic location overlooking the bay in the heart of the historic zone. There are so many restaurants within a 5 minute walk that we didn't eat dinner at the hotel but the breakfast selection is vast and enjoyable. There was some engineering work being done to the new harbour defences for which the hotel compensated us generously with a €20 credit per day but it really wasn't a problem for us. In fact being married to an engineer we found the whole thing fascinating rather than distracting. On the whole a lovely hotel which I would heartily recommend for exploring Funchal and the surrounding area.
