The apartment was huge, clean and well equipped.The sea views were to die for, absoloutely beautiful. However, October was very hot and there...

This is our second visit to this all inclusive Hotel. The Hotel is very informal and has a great relaxed feel so is an ideal getaway for distressing. Set on the outskirts of Funchal overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, listening to the sound of the waves on the shoreline at night is a great way to help gently send you off...

The location was lovely as it had a level walk right outside the Hotel in both directions .Left into Funchel about 2 1/2 mile this has a few steepish steps. Left into Calamara de Lobos. Similar distance but well worth the effort. The shuttle Bus was a godsend as to walk both ways would be too much, and saved us...

Had a lovely 1 week holiday here, despite some reviews we found our first floor room couldn't be faulted. Plenty of food and good variety, except breakfast which was a bit repetitive. Staff were all very polite and helpful. Probably not the best of hotels for those with young families but perfect for couples. There is a regular bus to...

Had 4 nights here February and really enjoyed the hotel. It was spotlessly clean and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room on the 6th floor with great ocean views. Absolutely loved the sound of the waves crashing so peaceful to wake up to. The rooms were a little dated...
