Went in to the office and asked a reasonable question in a very polite manner. The staff member just couldn't be bothered and was very unhelpful, obstructive and off hand. Why did I bother? Tried again on two more occasions and met with the same attitude!!!!!!

When I did my web search where to celebrate the new year in Madeira I found almost zero reviews. And I decided to write one, for you folks. I agree with the previous Portuguese review about the reveillon but will add some positive aspects as well. First of all, the price of 135 EUR is too much, probably its because... More

We have travelled on the Porto Santo ferry twice.Once for a day trip and once where we stayed on the ' must visit' island of Porto Santo for a night. It is a modern RORO ferry.
