Stayed between 7th-14th January. Requested side sea view double in Block C, upgraded to a double suite in Block A. Actually preferred Block A due to it's proximity and access to Estrada Monumental from Level 5. Rooms were spotless and the cleaning crew were very friendly. Good variety at breakfast. Location was good, close enough to Funchal to walk (approx....

Lovely hotel, clean,with pleasant staff. We didn't dine in the evenings there, but at good local reasonably priced restuarants, but the breakfasts were good. Is situated at the far end of the hotel section outside Funchal so a good (pleasant) walk into Funchal and back but buses are frequent. Modern shopping centre nearby - but does not reflect "authentic Madeira"...

The shower floor had rust and a huge yellow stain that could not be cleaned because the floor was so old. There were ants in the room.The decoration is also very old fashioned; i felt a flashback to the 80ies. The receptionist took for...
