I had booked a triple occupancy seaview room and was upgraded to a family seaview room which had a day bed made up. The room had a little kitchenette with dishes, silverware, cookware and 2 burners if I wanted to cook but most importantly it had an electric kettle. The room was very clean and spacious and the view was wonderful. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious with eggs made to order if you so desire. The resort grounds were immaculate with lots of flowers and plants. I did not use the pool unfortunately as the weather was too cool for my taste. The resort also offered scheduled transportation into the Old Town which was an added bonus. We were there for Carnival but missed the festivities on Tuesday in downtown Funchal. The resort did have entertainment come in for Carnival but again I did not see the entertainment as I was on my way to dinner that evening. All in all a fabulous stay. I don't usually take the time to rate my hotel stay but I wanted to comment on the exceptional service at this resort hotel.
