I stayed overnight as a result of a cancelled flight (due to wind shear at the airport). We were all shipped (bussed) to just below the hotel from where we had to haul our luggage up the hill to queue outside the hotel in pouring rain. Some of us eventually went into the hotel and helped ourselves to the meal put on for the 60 odd passengers which was surprisingly good given the circumstances. I booked in after the meal.Breakfast was pitiful so I made up two rolls to eat on the replacement flight the next day. The staff were as helpful as they could be but they were under a lot of pressure.
I would certainly not chose to stay here but at least I had a nights sleep and was fed and watered. Easyjet/Funchal airport paid the bill.More
