We had room 808 for a week during the Carnaval. It consisted of a bedroom, a separate sitting room, a bathroom and an adequate balcony with two comfortable chairs and a table. It had loads of storage space, tea making facilities and a flat screen TV. There are two improvements to suggest - more hooks on the wall as having...

Our usual hotel was fully booked so we found this one nearby and booked a Superior Suite. We looked through all the info available and decided to give it a try. The approach to the front is directly onto the main road up a couple of steps. The entrance looked inviting but the reception area was cold and staff didn't...

We are really sad that our Hotel did not meet your expectations, which surprises us as we have a large number of repeat guests who feel "at home" and come back almost every year or sometimes twice a year. We also feel sorry that you have not contacted the Management to tell your disappointment, neverthless we will be only happy...

Looking for a late deal for Carnival week I was delighted when this hotel appeared on the Thomson website at an amazing price for half board. I had previously stayed here and I was looking forward to seeing the results of the refurbishment. On arrival, the first thing you notice is the new terrace outside the restaurant, overlooking the road.Check-in...

Lovely room with a great view towards the ocean. Excellent service from the staff and good facilities. This hotel is located within walking distance to Funchal centre, with shopping and various restaurants nearby as well as bus stops right outside the door. The higher floors (6 and up) are better if you want a great view.

Nice atmosphere, very helpful staff, Delicate poolareas and nice little garden. Near to Lido, busses and good restaurants. The breakfast buffet could be improved by more "homemade" stuff! Big variety! Nicely furnitured lounge areas! A pleasant place to stay!
