My fiance and I have just returned from a very relaxing stay in Madeira and this hotel was definitely a highlight. I can't thank them enough for making my birthday very speical (with added cake and champers in our room :-)). The staff are so friendly and helpful you feel chilled and relaxed from the moment you enter until the moment you leave. The gardens are beautiful and the views excellent.
We loved the indoor pool, the only downside being an evening exercise class that cut into our post-walking warmdown for the final 3 days of our stay. We would have like to have been told that the pool was technically closed from 6.30pm rahter than open until 8pm as advertised!
Breakfasts were ideal and the food from the bar very nice, washed down with excellent tea!
We loved the hotel's location, up on a hill overlooking Funchal but i imagine some people might not relish the 20 minutes stroll into town. We found the walk essential for walking off the HUGE Madeiran meals we repeatedly enjoyed!
I would certainly recommend this hotel to couples or small groups, no one too noisy though - you'd spoil the atmosphere...
