We stayed her for a week in late October. The accomodation was basic but acceptable. The service was poor, actually nonexistent. The reception was always closed. The TV remote didn't work. When we called Ricardo he put in new batteries pronto - but we shouldn't have had to ask, he should have ensured all was working. When we said we couldn't work out how to operate the microwave he brought us a manual in English - but we shouldn't have had to ask, it should have been there anyway. The cleaners just made the bed and did nothing else - but nothing was provided for us to wash up with, we had to buy a sponge and washing up liquid, there was no cloth of any description to wipe surfaces (we had to use one of the towels), not even a broom to sweep up (the cleaners certainly didn't hoover). There was an ironing board but no iron, nor a hairdryer. We actually quite liked not being in Funchal for a change, Canico de Baixo has some nice restaurants and there is a Spar opposite the Club which stocks most things except fresh food, which didn't really matter because we usually ate out. And going into Funchal on the bus was quite fun, the busstop is nearby and the fare is €2.10.
