We had a mountain view which was spectacular but choosing a sea view would have given us a sunny balcony most of the day. Easy walk into Funchal centre downhill and a bit of a struggle coming back. Taxi back from MacDonalds 5 euro inc tip was well worth it.
Breakfast was great with plenty to choose from hot and cold.
Otherwise meals were average in the Pub to expensive in the Taverna Grill. We chose to dine out most of the time at local establishments which were great.
Staff generally very good and attentive but did observe a narky waiter at the next table one breakfast time, who wasn't helped by the attitude of the guest either.
Overall a 5 star just about, as tourist hotels go. It was our second visit and good value for money in a package deal. We would certainly go again.
