We had a fantastic holiday at this hotel which we booked through Portland holidays (I believe they are part of Thomsons as we flew on a Thomsons plane and had a Thomsons rep). The hotel is in a great location in the heart of the lido part of Funchal but it is on a busy main road so take care when going in and out . The rooms were more than adequate for me and my friends and when we asked for extra pillows the staff were more than happy to arrange this for us and were very speedy. The food is ok, nothing amazing but we always found something good to eat for dinner and we went out a couple of evenings as there are so many good restaurants in the area especially sola juda (probably the wrong spelling) where we had the beef on a hot stone...a very smoky but delicious night out! We found plenty to occupy us during our stay including shopping of which there is an abundance but the island itself was the real highlight of our stay. We booked a 3 trip deal with John our rep and found it great value for money. We got to see the whole island and still had plenty of time to relax and see the city. There were cheap places around town to book trips including one right next to the hotel called Strawberry World but we heard some bad reviews about them from friends who had been to Madeira before us and I think most of these cheap places are linked with timeshare properties so we stayed well away. We always book with the reps anyway as we know they're reliable and we'll be taken care of. Their guides are amazing especially Darlene who really made the trips for us with her commentary and knowledge plus she only spoke in English so we got her full attention through the day. If you are planning to go to Madeira I can highly recommend this hotel and the tours. Say hi to John if he's still there...he was fab!
