It was just over a year ago when we last visited the hotel Windsor in Funchal, there has been a major change,the rooms now have air conditioning (hooray).
The Windsor is a fantastic place to be for the location, the firework displays on the weekend throughout June. We found the swimming pool on the roof the ideal spot to chill out and have a beer or two and catch some rays or zzzzzzz's. The lunchtime menu at the hotel is very cheap, so to the evening menu.
Your about 100mtrs from the main shopping and cafe area's and the ice cream parlour is still 60 metres away and open till 23.00hrs.
Staff are still very friendly and very helpful.
We decided on a bus trip around half of the Island this time and it was amazing although your backside is a bit numb after 3 hours to porta Moniz, then 2 hours there having a fantastic fish soup and then 3 hours back stopping at Calheta, it was lovely and a bit scary going up and down the mountains, but what views. Well worth the 12 euros each.
For the money you really cannot knock the Windsor, its basic but good.
