From the moment you entered reception you felt valued and welcome. Spotless bedrooms, constant fresh linen, amazing public rooms with superb views, nice bar area. Staff were always pleasant and friendly. Breakfast was good, always six hot dishes plus continental. Good choice of fruit, and juices, excellent fresh breads and genuinely as much as you could eat. We had bread and breakfast but other guests were very happy with their all inclusive operation. The value for money was superb and as a bonus there was a nice bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate my birthday.
Machico is a harbour/beach resort with a choice of restaurants. While much of the beach is stones/large pebbles, there is an excellent man-made sandy beach too. Hotel has outdoor pool and tennis court.
Machico is about twenty miles from Funchal, but there are plenty of buses, except Sundays. The airport is only a 10 euro taxi ride away. Car hire advisable for those planning go further afield. I would not mind returning. It really was good value.More
