“Nice clean hotel”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

As most others have said the hotel is very clean and the staff helpfull, it is only 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from Funchal so well positioned. My only criticisms of the hotel would be the hot tub that has the smell of bacteria if you put the bubble jets on, the hire car company they recommend delivered me a car with no brakes and a clutch that was on its last legs, I wasted half a day getting hold of a car from another company, I would advise using a 'proper' company like hertz or Avis, the hotel in my opinion should not be using sub standard suppliers, last Minor point if you pay for a late check out as we did be aware your key card needs to be reprogrammed. Overall though a good 3 to 4 star with very clean facilities and I would stay again. As others have said there are six restaurants to use if you go out of the back gate ( sea side of the hotel) turn right and a pleasant walk along the promenade then up approx 30 steps and turn left at the top, we had the stake on a stone twice as it was so good.

Room Tip: Upper floors give a better view so level 4 or 5 are best

Thank you very much for your review in Tripadvsior regarding our Hotel.

It is so nice to read that on a general way you have enjoyed your holidays with us.

It is the first time that an observation is made about a strange smell in our Hot Tub, for this matter we are working on it and we found that the smell is chlorine the element that we use to avoid bacterias , our truly apologies for the uncomfortable feeling during your time there.
Regarding the Rent-a-car we will speak with them to understand what was wrong with the car, normally we have no issues and we consider them very helpful.

we would like to inform you that the room cards are always updated when we have late check-outs, there are plenty of factors that can stop the magnetized key to work like for example having the card close to your mobile phone.
Thank you very much for your commentaries and for your tip regarding the upper floors.

We look forward to see you again in our Hotel.

Best regards,

Duarte Ferreira

We had a really nice vacation, the rooms were very clean and well equipped, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was just fine. The evening entertainment program was a bit too noisy for our taste, but the nights were quiet and we could enjoy the sound of the waves. Lots of nice restaurants and two supermarkets nearby, and a beautiful beach promenade. Thee are two diving centres in walking distance and the marine sanctuary is a great place for diving.

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view on 2nd floor or higher

Really nice place with friendly staff and a lovely outdoor pool. We came here with a 7month old son therefore we needed a child friendly hotel as I knew Madeira was hilly. This hotel was well situated and had a lot of flat land to walk on, one or two hills and you were at the restaurants but at least it was down hill home. We had a family room which was massive (room 410) with plenty of space even with a cot and pushchair in the room, kitchen area with everything from toasters to kettles. We were B&B and the breakfast was very nice but busy, we found it best to go later (9:30ish) Only one thing that could have been better... The indoor pool which was quite small. However if they told me this was a 5 star hotel... I would have believed it!! Recommend this hotel

It's nice to understand that our service have been up to your expectations and that you have enjoyed the location and the room.

Regarding the inside pool it is a bit smaller, we have tried to make it Cousy and we added the sauna on that area.

Thank you for your stay, for your comments and for your recommendations.

Our stay was really enjoyable. The hotel is clean and our room was well equipped with a TV, lovely bathroom (nice shower with reasonable water pressure) and great entertainment on every evening that we were there.
The pool area is lovely and kept immaculately clean by the staff. The food selection is immense both at breakfast and in the evening, although I will say there's not much choice for vegetarians, however there is plenty of salad to fill up on.
The staff are really helpful. There is a regular bus service from outside the hotel, which is needed as there is absolutely nothing in Canico to do other than walk along the promenade and to the local Spar shop and the couple of restaurants nearby. The bus service takes you into Funchal which is about 9 kilometers away. On the express bus this journey takes about 15 minutes but on the slow bus it takes nearer 40 minutes but is very scenic. There is an indoor pool and a spa at the hotel, which although I did not use, looked very nice.
The hotel provide tea and coffee in the rooms for when you arrive but then charge 3 Euros to top it up so we bought our own at the local Spar as this worked out cheaper. We also bought bottled water locally as it was cheaper than buying it in the hotel as the tour operator advised us not to drink the water from the taps.

Room Tip: Rooms with an ocean view are more expensive. The hotel has quite a lot of stairs as it is built on a...

Thank you very much for your feedback in Tripadvisor.

We are happy to read that you have enjoyed your stay in our Hotel.

Caniço is not the main city in Madeira island and for this matter it misses the offer that Funchal can have. The beauty of our Hotel in Caniço is that your are near the seaside with a lovely promenade far away from traffic and noise.

It is a bit complicated to understand why the tour operator informed you about our water has it is drinkable and we never had any issue with it.

Thank you very much for your commentaries.

We look forward to meet you again in our hotel.

Last August, we went here for our honeymoon! What an excellent choice was this!

First of all, they arranged a special package with champagne free of charge to celebrate our honeymoon.

Secondly, the room was very spacious and clean! Everything was perfect, with a nice and modern design.

Furthermore, the breakfast was a absolutely fantastic! A lot of options and everything was so tasty! We did never use the restaurants so I cannot comment on that.

Also, the swimming pool, gym, indoor pool, bar, wellness area etc. certainly lived up to our expectations, and much more!

Conclusion: great hotel in a quiet location with excellent facilities and service. If going back to Madeira, we would definetely go back there!

Other recent reviews have just about covered everything, but if going into Funchal by bus, try the local (not the express) bus, which visits the high villages and gives great but scary views. 2.20 euros, one way, bus stop directly across from the hotel. Timetables available from reception. Terminus in Funchal is next to the cable car to Monte, but to avoid the extensive roadworks, ask to get off at the stop near the fruit/fish market.
The prevailing wind is from the north-east, so if the weather is poor, it would be best to avoid a side sea view room which faces north east - very noisy with strong winds and crashing waves, even with patio doors closed.
During our stay the hotel was almost full, with at least 90% German guests (us few Brits were heavily outnumbered) - not really a problem, but they were very noisy at mealtimes.
One other point - no bath, but the shower was super, and about the best we have enjoyed in a four star hotel.

Room Tip: if the weather is poor, it would be best to avoid a side sea view room which faces north east - very...

Thank you very much for writing about our Hotel.

Most of your reviews is based in Madeira itself and I fell that your tips are very handy for someone who is visiting us for the first time.

Caniço is not the main city (the main is Funchal) but the beautiful weather you get here and the proximity of our hotel to the sea makes it all worthwhile.

We are pleased to read that it has been your best four star hotel experience, and we are thankful that you have shared your experience with the world thought Tripadvisor.

Thank you very much for staying with us.

We hope to see you again in your next visit to Madeira Island.
