In many ways this hotel feels like a 5* - rooms are really large and very well appointed. Little details make such a difference e.g. mirror over desk/dressing table. Fixed hairdryer in bathroom but a portable one too. Everywhere was really clean and well looked after both inside and outside the hotel - which despite being full still felt spacious...

The hotel has been a favorite of ours for many years. The staff are always helpful and seem to enjoy working there. The location is excellent on the Lido area of Funchal which has reopened since our last visit. Special mention for the Alfama restaurant which served a super dinner. Only slight disappointment was that our balcony was near the...

If there was 4.5 I would have given it because this is a lovely hotel set in beautiful gardens overlooking the Atlantic ocean. We asked for a sea view in a quiet part of the hotel and this is what we got. The hotel benefits from its location which is close to a number of excellent restaurants and is just...

This hotel sits overlooking the sea and is about 40 mins walk from the centre of town. It is part of a bigger complex but you can share all the amenities of the hotels. They are joined by corridors so you don’t have to go outside if you don’t want too. The room was spacious and had all the usual...
