We have known about this island for a long time, as we were here 21 years ago. We are just back from a lovely two-week holiday, and while I agree with most of the positive comments regarding the resort, I have to say that I think the quality of the food could have been better. We stayed in a 4-star hotel in Madeira last year, where we had better food. Although I'm not too hard to please, my wife is not too keen on meats or fish, so she was struggling to get a main course she liked. Throughout the two weeks, chicken breasts were not on the menu, only strange-looking chicken legs. It appears that the breasts were only served up in the a la carte restaurants, where you had to pay extra. Also, because of the the open access to the restaurant, not only were there flies about, but also birds flying around over open food trays, and you know what birds do! We always went to eat at the beginning of mealtimes, when it was quiet and you would also expect the food to be hot, but this wasn't always the case. Everything else about the resort was excellent (apart from entertainment), so it's a pity the food let it down.
