We stayed here all inclusive recently and had a fantastic holiday in Madeira. However, the hotel is very hit and miss. The location is perfect, a nice flat walk into the old town and near some good pubs and restaurants. It was about 20-25 minutes from the airport. The staff were fantastic all week, they made us very welcome and...

The hotel at the time of our visit had just had a refurbishment of the reception area and restaurant etc, which was lovely. Our room was a suite, with a view of the sea. It was well furnished, with a very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. The poolside was lovely, with a new pool bar being installed. Location was superb,...

We stayed here when our plane was delayed because of high winds. We had one of the bedrooms not updated, so the furniture was very tired. The bathroom was clean but basic. The restaurant was open for their guests when we arrived and the standard of food was poor. This could be because of the sudden influx of extra people....

Unfortunately having the Airport closed on the way home is most unconvenient and uncomfortable. Nevertheless we feel sorry that staying only overnight in our Hotel did not give the opportunity for you to appreciate both our permises and our services. Kind Regards

We went as an extended family group for a week's all-inclusive Easter holiday- 2 'superior sea view suites' for me & my husband and my parents, plus one regular suite for my teenage children. A very pleasant hotel, well-situated although our views of the sea were definitely interrupted by other hotels (especially one very large 5* star hotel!) and a...

We stayed for a week, all inclusive with our 3 year old son. Hotel staff were great, all the staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating. 25 minute walk into Funchal, we walked each way but there are bus stops right outside of the hotel. All inclusive was ideal for us with a small child. Evening meal consisted of three...

Spent a week in this refurbished hotel, lovely and clean and the staff were, on the whole, friendly and helpful. The pool area and staff were great and our lunch and snacks out there were good.Sadly the restaurant let the place down. The staff seemed subdued and lacked any sense of enthusiasm. We were never offered the chance of a...
