Unreserved - excellent
Just returned from a wonderful 11 night stay at this superb hotel. I am very fussy and quite demanding when it comes to hotels and I could not fault a single aspect of this one. Believe me I have been trying to think of something. Wonderful grounds with very well kept gardens, varied pool areas offering something for everyone, plenty of well maintained sunbeds and very warm and helpful staff. Rooms are of generous size and are very comfortable with air conditioning and kitchenette area and are in excellent decorative order.The hotel also offers nightly quality entertainment that finishes at 23:00 or before and 4 quality restaurants. There are also some excellent restaurants within easy walking distance from the hotel. Great location too being about 3 km from the centre of Funchal in an upmarket suburb and really close to pick up points for many of the tours on offer.
The hotel is quiet at night so a good nights sleep is the order of the day.
Fantastic varied choice for breakfast.
Acid test is would I stay again and the answer is yes - already booked for next March to do some of the wonderful walks on offer.More

Fantastic Holiday Experience
My husband and i have just returned from this fantastic hotel and we are planning a return already. Originally booked this hotel after reading Tripadvisor and it was everything we hoped it would be. From our effiecient friendly greeting on arrival to our wonderful room we could not fault it. I had e mailed the hotel to ask for a higher room and we were on the 6th floor , fantastic sea views and over looking the pool and gardens. Our Junior suite was very clean , had plenty of space and the fridge and kettle in the kitchenette area were well used. All the staff were extremely helpful and a special mention for the lovely reception staff who helped us find some fantastic restaurants especially on our Wedding Anniversary. A huge thank you to the House keeper who thoughtfully spread red rose petals all over our bed and the table on our Anniversary along with a bottle of something fizzy to greet us when we came in. Having spoken to the restaurant they had warned them it was a special meal and we had a wonderful chocolate Anniversary dessert as a surprise , what a lovely day you helped make for us. The gardens were a joy to walk through especially at night when all lit up and were so well kept as was the whole place. Breakfast was varied with something for everyone and the staff werer friendly and efficient. Special mention for the Med restaurant both for the food and the staff , ate there 3 nights and well worth a visit. Ideally placed to pick up day trips etc and a good selection of restaurants in the area if you wanted to eat outside the hotel. Free bus into the centre of Funchal although the walk back only took approx 30 mins but worth it as you pass some lovely gardens. Plenty of sunbeds to go around , great pools both outside and in the spa area and treatments reasonably priced and good value.
Having stayed here we would recomend it to everyone , one of the best hotels we have ever visited and wouldn't look any where else in FunchalMore
First time to Madeira. Initially we chose this hotel because of the previous good ratings on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed in any way. From first arriving to departure ALL the staff were friendly and helpful. The public rooms, pools, poolside, gardens and the like were immaculately maintained. Our own suite on the sixth floor was spanking clean, spacious and very well appointed. The food. delicious. My sole, I repeat sole (I kid you not), concern about the whole experience was that at breakfast I could never find a salt cellar that gave a good flow of salt!
Outside the hotel you have to be prepared for steep inclines, but this is Madeira so no surprises there. The centre of Funchal is a pleasant evening walk distant with many good eating places en route if that is your wish. Give Restaurant Tokos a try...small but perfectly formed....and if you are homesick (ha ha ha) The Indian Restaurant at 80 R. da Casa Branca serves a very acceptable curry!
We visited the veg and fish markets and experienced none of the hassle described by some elsewhere on here. It is also well worth making the effort to visit Monte, take the sled ride and view Funchal from the return cable car.
One thing is certain, we will return!!!More
