We spent a week in this very affordable, modern hotel in what seemed to be Madeira's rainy season. Out of 1 week we only had one sunny day, but that's another story!
The hotel was' bright' airy and comfortable. Spotless, aircon, room with balcony overlooking pool area and carpark of nearby hotel. Sea view if you look hard left! good sized bath with overhead shower, plenty of hot water. TV with lots of channels, only a few of which interested us.
Reception area had free wifi, would have liked access in my room. Small attractive pool and outside area. Ice creams were cheaper than the local park's.
Breakfasts were reasonable, usual fruits (tinned and fresh), yogs, cereals etc cold meats and tasty bread and pastries. In addition you could order a hot (warm) cooked breakfast - limited choice of reasonable quality - you get what you pay for. Fruit squash and coffee were a let down. Unfortunately on a few mornings we did share our breakfast with local ants, they had discovered the buffet as well and were keenly interested in the breads..
Service on the whole was very good, only a couple of staff seemed below par.
Great location, near port and good local restaurants, good sports bar close by if you need. Everything on a hill, so it gives your calf muscles a good work out.
