“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

I think it is a 3 star hotel.

Good:

- Cleaning service was very good. Also very polite.
- Good location.
- Rooms are ok.
- One receptionist is very polite and good service. Dark haired woman, dont know her name.

Bad:

- Breakfast buns are bread are raw. Every morning. They should probably put them into oven for 30 minutes more. The breakfast lady was rude. Some fruits were bad quality, black spotted bananas, green tomatoes for example. Bacon was vile.

Good in breakfast was coffee, juice and cereals. Some fruits were good, you need to sort them out :)

- The view across the window displays some sort of old yard with an access to old concrete doorway. It was just pretty bad view.

- They should put curtains to bathroom windows. It is a small window, but if somebody walking on the doorway wants to peep in, they can see right inside.

I could stay in this place again, but only if it was cheaper than this time.

Room Tip: Don't use balcony table before you know it has not been walked by pigeons just a moment ago :)

Arrived at these Appartments/Hotel after transferring from another. What a joy, the rooms are clean, light and welcoming. We had a studio room with fridge, kettle, hotplates and microwave. Great as I love a cup of tea. We also had a balcony and as we were on the fourth floor had sea glimpses, better sea views on roof where pool etc are. The staff were wonderful so helpful nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was extremely good loads of food hot and cold great choice. For a 4 star hotel the Terrace Mar is moderately priced and great value for that money. Would definitely revisit.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less road noise although its situated in a oneway street and traffic not bad.

We stayed here during our honeymoon in Madeira and could not have been happier. The breakfast was good and the staff went above and beyond for us. As it was our honeymoon, the hotel upgraded us to one of the apartment suites and there was a bottle of champaign waiting for us when we got in which we enjoyed on the rooftop watching the sunset near the pool. Absolutely loved this quiet oasis in Funchal and should we ever go back to Madeira, I would not hesitate to stay again.

This is the second time I have stayed in this beautiful hotel. The hotel has recently been refurbished and is very peaceful and relaxing. The location is ideal with superb scenary and the staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. I cannot fault this hotel. Holidaymakers will not be disappointed. The jacuzzi and massage is highly recommended. Will stay again!

Breakfasts were varied, a rooftop pool was OK, jacuzzi was next to the pool. The weather in March was great during the day but at night it was cool, in the rooms there were blankets. Big beds, spacious room and kitchenette were super.

From the arrival at the airport, the transfer guy was waiting for us. On arrival to the hotel i was greated by the receptionist who was friendly. The room was clean and the kitchen and bathroom were in a good state(no appliances hanging off walls!). The only major drawback to the holiday was the construction site next door to the hotel, but the only noise was in the day, saying that no lovely views to behold! We also had hard single beds, which wern't the most romantic. I didn't have food at the hotel and didn't partake in the amenities, as we wern't at the hotel alot, but i would have avoided them if i'm honest. All said it was a cheap holiday and i enjoyed our room, and our stay in Madiera
