This was our second holiday in this hotel.We contacted them prior to arriving and asked if we could have the same room we had previously stayed in. This was already allocated but we got the one next door. We chose a sea view room and the supplement is worth it. Beautiful views and overlooking the swimming pool and garden areas. The 5 star is justified everything is first class.
Breakfast is sumptuous. We didn't have dinner in the hotel as we like to go for stroll in the evenings and dine out. Plenty of restaurants near by. Recomended Brunoe's & Monumental Grill
There is a courtesy bus that runs to/from hotel into Funchal. If you miss this there is a local bus service virtually outside hotel. A taxi one way costs approx 7 Euro's.
The staff are so polite and always smiling this makes this hotel special.
