We have just returned from a great two weeks holiday in Madeira. We stayed in the Four Views on half board from 26th September to 10th Oct 2011.
This is an excellent relaxing retreat. We required only a good clean hotel with good food and staff. This hotel is all that and much more. People with disabilities it would seem to us to have no problems at all getting about.
Rooms are of good size the beds comfy. They suited myself as they were moderately firm. Air conditioning and a large ceiling fan keep the room cool and pleasant.Hot water and fresh towels, bed linen are regularly changed.
The weather was superb, wall to wall sunshine.
This was our first visit to the Island and this hotel is excellently placed for getting about. The bus stops are in front of the hotel and the trips about the Island are there also, so ideal.
We can recommend Strawberry World Tours as these were the ones we went with and their booking office and start point are next door to the hotel. We as first time visitors went on the South East (1 day), the North West (1 day), and the Nuns Valley (half day) for the two of us this was a total of 108 Euro. Anna the tour guide and Mr Marco the driver are a credit to the company.
A visit to Monte and the gardens is recommended. We went by bus and returned on the cable car. Bus 1 euro each, cable car 10 euro each. You can go down by sledge (we gave that a miss). Another garden is the Botanical Garden, gardens of course depend on the season one visits, but we enjoyed them.
For getting about on the buses we recommend you go round to Joe's as soon as you can, round the corner from the hotel and up the hill a little way and get your bus tickets they explain everything and are very helpful.
We went with Jet2 and I have no problems to report at all.
We are a couple who do their own thing so the other things which the hotel does we cannot comment about such as entertainment in the evenings, gym, swimming pools, etc. The library is useful and we used.
All in all a very enjoyable stay.
