          Location and layout perfect as base for Madeira discovery not in hotel zone quiet

          Limited toiletries in washroom lack of wifi outside central area

        • Family with children
          10.0

          A beautiful spacious and well designed hotel with good facilities, helpful staff, lovely food and conveniently located in an interesting and atmospherical part of Funchal which had the convenience of being near transport routes to visit all parts of the island.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Excellent location right on the seafront with close proximity to the centre of Funchal, but without being noisy. Although we booked a studio with a sea view we were upgraded to a junior suite which was spacious, clean and very well maintained. The included breakfast was plentiful,well cooked and presented. Charming, helpful staff.

          Pool was decidedly chilly - someone said the sea was warmer!

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The Hotel is situated in a great location by the old town, where you can find a lot a cafes and restaurants. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly.

          It is very expensive to eat at the hotel, when there are so many restaurantes near by where you can eat for half the price and still feel extremely satisfied. (The only down thing abou the hotel)

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Second visit to this hotel, just as good as first, staff and the whole experince is first class. Will be booking for next year soon.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Location in old part of town excellent. Proximity to many good restaurants and within easy walking distance of shops, cathedral, museums and cable car. Beautiful views out to sea. We enjoyed watching the arrival and departure of the cruise liners. Breakfasts were excellent, leisurely and very civilised. Cocktail bar pleasant, the entertainment here was mixed. On one occasion, local musicians were particularly good. The room was very comfortable and standard of cleanliness very high. The cleaning lady was delightful. Staff at reception were helpul and pleasant.

          There were very few things we didn't like. The welcome drink (which we weren't able to accept) seemed to be a precursor to a sales routine for the hotel's sister time-share facility. We were phoned about this when we didn't go for the drink. Then leaflets were put under our door about the time-share. We go on holiday to (among other things) escape nuisance calls and junk literature and so did not appreciate this. We also felt the hotel was of such a high standard in many respects that this let it down. It must be said, though, that when we told reception that we wanted this to stop, it did. The quality of music in the cocktail bar was excellent on one occasion but very poor on other evenings.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Very service minded staff, very central location in Funchal, very good value for money

          Free internet in rooms would be better than only in lobby.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Everything in order, well situated, free garage

          Petty things: address unknown to GPS; would prefer everything needed to make coffee/tea instead of kitchinette without supplies; internet access point occupied all evening

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Everything was great, in particular, the staff were top notch. Very attentive without being overbearing

          The mattress on the bed and the pillows were weay too hard. Gave me backache! Also, a double bed should be that - not two beds put together

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The service, cleanliness and food were all very good and we would have no hesitation in returning

        • Couple
          9.6

          The staff were very friendly and always willing to help us. The location was so convenient for walking around the island, with the cable car right next door and Madeira's Old Town with all it's restaurants, right behind. The views of the sea were also lovely.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Laid-back atmosphere, helpful staff, high-quality buffet breakfast. The room has a kitchenette which means you don't have to go to restaurants every day. We paid a supplement for a third adult, and the room was plenty big enough for the third bed. It's well worth paying a little extra for the sea view. Excellent location for Funchal town and bus-stops for going on levada walks.

          Only niggle is that they charge a fee for using the room safe.

        • Couple
          8.8

          One could see the passing ships from the window. Breakfast was plenty and could be spent in a beautiful garden terrace. Cable car to Monte right next door, old town with nice restaurants just two steps away.
