Having just spent 11 nights at this hotel, I wanted to share our experience. The receptionists are extremely helpful and efficient. Everything we asked for was dealt without delay. Our room was on the top floor and had a full sea view and was spacious. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The food in the restaurant was not the best we have experienced at a Riu hotel, but there was always a good choice of dishes. The waiters were always attentive and our glasses were always filled quickly. We were staying on an all inclusive basis, which was good value for money. The staff all spoke very good English, so there was never a communications problem. As there is no beach in the location, the pool area does get quite crowded. Although there is not a great deal in the hotel vicinity, the hotel does run a shuttle bus into Funchal, which is only about 15 minutes away. There are two sittings for dinner and as we had the second sitting which was at 8.30pm. By the time we have finished dinner, the entertainment had ended. Therefore, the entertainment could start a little later, so that the second sitting diners have the opportunity to see the acts. All in all, this is a very well run hotel and we would certainly return.
