First time in Madeira and chose the Orca Praia Hotel. Clean and comfortable. Good hot and cold buffet breakfast. Renovated room with free wifi and kettle provided. Friendly and efficient staff. A bit out of the way (6km from Funchal) but hotel provides a courtesy bus Mon to Fri and the local bus stops outside (1 euro 35 cents on a Giro card). A few eating places within walking distance. We liked the Beer Garden with good simple food and reasonable prices. One criticism is the lack of English channels on the TV which meant I missed the 6 Nations rugby. Promenade walk to Camara de Lobos but can't walk into Funchal the other way as the tunnel was shut due to rock falls.
Would definitely come back to Orca Praia if returned to Madeira.More
