First of all, I must qualify my comments by pointing out that we booked the largest apartment in the block. It was worth it. No noise from the road, a 30 ft balcony, and plenty of room. This was our first self catering experience for twenty years, so we put any reservations to one side, and enjoyed the plus points to the maximum.

The apartment had all that we needed; a comfortable bed, plenty of storage space, good quality crockery and utensils, and plenty of hot water, once you worked out that the system is akin to an immersion heater, and it was a good idea to wait for a few minutes if the temperature was less than 50'. No problem.

The furniture was comfortable, however some may baulk at the armchairs, which were covered to disguise some wear. Again, no problem. TV was fine, with some English channels, not that we spent much time watching. Nicer to sit on the balcony and chill.

The view from the balcony is partly impaired by a substantial development 50 yards away; but we had a super sea view. The area below the apartment is a plot used only by locals parking a few cars behind a security chain, and returning for them later. It proved to be very quiet all week, apart from the occasional barking of a dog from a local property.

As far as our greeting goes, we waited in the downstairs bar for no more than 15 minutes for a very pleasant lady, who showed us around the apartment, and left contact details if a difficulty occurred. We had no need to contact anyone. Cleaners came in halfway through the week, changed the bedding, and left plenty of towels. All in all, a pleasant experience; and we would book that apartment again with no hesitation.

Room Tip: Pay for the larger apartment if it is available.

Arrived 31st May for 14 days.On arrival no one to meet and greet,just a phone number.Thanks to our taxi driver he sorted it out.First look round it looks good.Only when you have been there 24hrs you realise it not OK.First four nights we had no sleep what with the traffic,two bars on the ground floor open on occasions to 2am-3am .Open the sliding doors its like living next to a boarding kennels.[There are still some original Madeira properties next to the apartments that is were all the noise came from.] Apartment C has no sun on the balcony at all and inside the apartment it needs maintenance work to be carried out.The noise from the road you would think you was living on the M25.
The apartments are in the Lido area and handy for all your requirements.If you like
noise its ideal but peace and quiet NO.We tried for the 2nd week for other apartments,but all were booked up.
My advice is that if you have booked any of these apartments think twice.
There are far better apartments in the area.We have been to Madeira many times
and this is the worst holiday we have had.
I did email parent hotel twice about the problems and all we got was a new brush and
dustpan.
Positive side the apartment was excellent for being clean and the lift 1st class.

Room Tip: Best apartment A Apartment C has no sun on the balcony

The position of the apartment is very good, there are a lot of restaurant and also a supermarket. Also the staff is very kind. Parking is a problem, but is possible to pay for a place in the private parking inside the building (we used it). Orher problem during our stay was some noisy group of young people that makes me impossible sleep.

Reasonable accommodation in a convenient location though it is very noisy being right on the Estrada Monumental.
The main problem is that the apartment block has no reception - certainly an issue when we arrived though our driver managed to ring somebody up to come and let us in! The person who appeared was helpful and there was a reception down in Funchal at the Atlandido Apartments (also very helpful on the one occasion that we went there) but it meant that there was nobody to ask about any problem eg the broken balcony light.
To say the least, we're rather surprised with the Excellent and Very Good ratings. There are much better places to stay in Funchal!

Nice modern apartment for 2 near to plenty of restaurants and bars. Decor, fixtures, and fittings ok, except for the sofa bed which was covered in dubious stains. Unfortunately, the whole Lido area, and particularly our apartment, suffered from bad drains, so much so we had to leave the patio door to the balcony and the front door to the apartment open to refresh the air at least 3 or 4 times a day. Wi fi when working was ok but if it dropped out it took ages to reconnect, couldn't move more than 2 metres from the router either. Would we stay here again, yes if they sorted the drains out but we probably wouldn't come back to Madeira due to the high humidity.
