The hotel seems to be in a residential location which means its pretty quiet. We paid extra for a sea view but they tried to put us with a pool view (moved after 1 night). eventual room was fine - amazing view. no air con though. pool is nice and its a fairly quiet hotel, but that was spoilt by the builders relaying the patio area all week. couldn't sit round the pool without the noise of hammers and drills was only temporary I guess. you can walk down steps to the sea. a good few restaurants nearby. breakfast was disappointing. not much choice and no toaster. staff were very helpful and freindly though and there is free wifi.
you definitely need a car although there is a regular bus to Funchal at the top of the road. just dont get a car from Thrifty unless you like driving a 7 year old Renault Clio with no air-con and 130 kilometers on the clock. absolute wreck. to summarise I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it but then our stay was spoilt by the building works right under our room which meant you couldn't really enjoy the hotel during the day and we had to go out (every day). Had there been no building works who knows?
