There are always pros and cons. The cons were: it was 30 C the week we were there. The apartment was exceptionally hot with no air movement even with the patio door and window open all night. There was no fan. On top of that the bed and pillows were terrible and uncomfortable so we did not sleep for the entire week of our stay. To us one of the most important features is a good bed.
The pros: Annika made arrangements for us to be picked up at and dropped off at the airport, she was there to greet us when we arrived at the apartment, the view was beautiful, the location was great, and having a washing machine in the unit were all positive.
If there was a better bed, bedding and a fan my review would be much higher.
If you are looking to stay in Madeira look no further. This apartment was immaculate and the location was excellent. The balcony overlooked the sea and was an amazing place to have breakfast or evening drinks.You have the use of the swimming pool with longers for free. This area was rarely busy and had great views of the sea. The bar was open weekends and evenings. Plenty of nearby restaurants all within walking distance. Local supermarket was a ten minute walk away. Funchal centre was approximately a forty minute walk away but there are buses on a regular basis. Recommend Blandys meidera wine tour in the town, you get 10% off any wine purchase in their shop and you can pick up at the airport on your way home.The booking of this property was easy and Annikka was really helpful on arrival.Ideal holiday destination if you are looking for a relaxing break.
The apartment block itself is a bit tired looking but Annikka's apartment was small but stylish with everything that you need for a great holiday. The fruit, tea and coffee was very thoughtful. Beach towels provided too. My only niggle is that it needs a new shower cubicle as the bathroom floor gets covered in water.
Advertised as Bright Seafront Apartment and it is ,lovely views from balcony great for breakfast and afternoon sun. Was met by Annikka who was in touch with us before and during our stay. The apartment is a home from home,everything you may need and more. We took advantage of using the washing machine prior to leaving. Lots of lovely touches concerning the decor. Free safe and wifi no noise problems concerning neighbours .Plenty of restaurants nearby and a large shopping mall if you like shopping on holiday (not me).
Overall we had a great week in a wonderful apartment.
Leaving the apartment after two weeks with only good and memorable experiences. The apartment is well equipped and had such a good starting point for most of our excursions both by car (parking space available) and on foot. When in the apartment we loved the view over the Atlantic and had our breakfast on the balcony every morning. We can recommend this apartment to other madeiran visitors and undoubtedly we will return.
