First of all i don't understand where all this negative feedback is coming from? i have never visited this hotel before it was my first time, the rep on the coach (carl) was extremely curtious to all and very helpful, we arrived around 25 minutes after boarding (dropped some other people of at their hotels), Yes there is a hill going up to the mimosa but jeese it takes 2 minutes to walk up it yes its a little steep but not a problem, if anything its good for you!, the Hotel itself is extremely clean and tidy, lovely foyer with waterfall, some interesting pieces of furniture (antiques), very comfortable areas, we were situated on the 4th floor and had a stunning view from our terrace of the ocean! also pool area, terrace bar were visable!, the room was spotless and beds were made and the room cleaned every day!,, Food was a toughy for me as im allergic to a lot of things, this was absolutely no problem as they catered for my needs with no hesitation! there was always a good selection at breakfast, and im a fussy git!, we were all inclusive, for dinner was either the set menu (which was different everyday and FINE), or you could eat at the terrace bar next to the pool, where they served good old grub like cheese and ham toasties, chips, steak, burgers, this was good for my young lad who enjoyed his sausages served with a smile from the wonderful arlinda who was fabulous with our boy,, drinks were plentiful much to the delight of my partner, not the best rola cola but u could ask for pepsi at a small price evening meals were served down at the sister hotel,(all linked by paths), the mermaid bar had a great selection of starters! loads in fact!, the main meal was either fish or meat each evening and the food was good stuff! i am a serious eater of english food and amazed myself by trying something different each evening after our joker waiter offered me lemon with my meals for a jest (im allergic to it lol), the puddings were plenty there must have been at least 8 selections to choose from all really good quality!,,, Now the entertainment::: there was only 1 evening that was dire this was bean bingo haha!(which my partner an myself ended up laughing so much that my ribs hurt) and a quiz!,,, the rest of the week was flamin good stuff! there was a 60s-80s evening and the dancers were out of this world real professional, truly awesome entertainment i did not expect that, the compare guys were funny dressing up in drag hilarious moment :), not the paladium but good fun all round!, ,,,, all amenities were 5 mins away and yes it was hills but at the end of the day madeira is a hilly place!... Funchal was a 5 minute drive in a taxi (around 7 euros) or u could take the free bus that picked you up from the hotel,, a busy but exhilirating place old town was beautiful!, lots of ticket touts for boat trips etc, but thats to be expected in a tourist location!,,, we took a trip on the santa maria ship and it was 3 hours of total bliss!... Also the botanical gardens were stunning definately worth a visit!... we were there when carnival was on and i have to say it was a once in a lifetime experiance awesome!..... back to the hotel and the staff were always there if you needed anything! and they were all really great people, very quick to help in anyway!, infact a lot of them were of top level service and took pride in their chosen job!,,,, So all in all it was a lovely holiday (really warm for feb ) not really a hotel for children i saw only a couple through the week so my lad decided the play area was his own lol, no its not 5 star but we get what we pay for!, great service, clean hotel, lovely people, proud place, do not go here if you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth as it won't reach your expectation! and your nose will turn up lol, if your down to earth like me you will enjoy yourself! only one thing i had a problem with, making a brew the kettle lid fell off while i was pouring and i burnt my hand big time, so maybe a little note to say that they can fall off would help future holidayers, on that note reception were rapido in helping me as always! also we had forgotten my sons buggy and asked if possible could they let us know where to hire one, within 15 minutes one of the reps had 1 delivered our room what belonged to her own child, now thats excellent service i have to say!..... i would recommend this hotel to all if you want a comfortable pleasent holiday enjoy!... those of you who want the ritz walk on and payfor it!......
