We chose this hotel for our honeymoon, and there not disappointed. At first, we were greeted with rose petals, champaigne and strawberries in the room, not to mention that the room was upgraded free of charge. That was already a godd start :)
The breakfast was nice and plenty of variaty, at least we did not miss anything. They even had champaigne served, also lovely cakes, try the traditional pastel de nata if you did not tried it yet somethere else.
The garden pool was really nice, they also have a second pool down at the ocean, however, we have preferred the one above.
Maybe the only drawback if the housekeeping provided as I am not sure how often did they clean the floor and other surfaces during our 2 week stay, but definately not everyday, so that is a bit of dissappointment. Moreover, after the first week we went to the reception and made a complaint, but that did not seem to help much. The bath amenities were also not refreshed regularly.
Overall, we are really satisfied with this hotel and woul recommend it to others.
P.S. the location is one of the best in Funchal, as it is almost at the city center, but also quite close to the Lido and has a private access to the ocean.
