Comfortable, Clean & Friendly
Spent a week on a Thomson Couples holiday at this hotel. It is very clean and the rooms are ample size. The bed was comfortable and large. Bath with shower over. Have to say the softest towels I've had in any hotel. Personally felt the wash basin was more of a design feature than a practical thing, but then maybe that's just me The pool came as a pleasant surprise to me - our last 5 Thomson holidays have had pools so cold I thought I was in the Arctic circle, but this one was warm - luxury! Compliments to the bar staff, they were good natured, comical and efficient in equal measures. I'm a bit undecided about the food. It wasn't the best dinner buffet I have had on a Thomson holiday, but there was plenty and I think one has to remember this is an island and therefore there are probably limitations on the availability of some things. I am a fish fan and felt well catered for. However, my three travelling companions did feel a bit let down on the Friday when fish appeared in the majority of dishes including the salads. Overall I recommend the hotel, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and of course Madeira is a delight.More
We returned home on the 11th August from this "Beautiful Hotel". We were on the 6th floor of this Couples Hotel and had a lovely spacious room. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The standard of cleanliness was exceptional in all areas. Plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool area. Great choice of food at breakfast and evening meal and all of very high quality. Our Thomson rep Paula was very knowledgeable about everything you needed to know about the island. The entertainment team were good fun and the Duo Domino had great voices. All together a fantastic holiday which we would recommend. Ron & MaureenMore

A lovely quiet, relaxed hotel. The staff were the stand out feature of the hotel, the most friendly, helpful people I have ever met. The food was great. Very quiet, clean and safe area but still close to the town centre. Our room was fantastic! we had the junior suite, which had a large private terrace with sun loungers, table and chairs and the most amazing view! As it was our honeymoon we had a free bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room. There was also a complimentary bowl of fruit and madeira wine. We had excellent massages in the spa which were very reasonably priced. We loved everything about it!More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in late July and we have nothing negative to say about the hotel. We a had room on 3rd floor overlooking the front of the hotel and it was excellent. Room was very spacious with seating and a very large comfortable bed. It was great having the fridge in the room too and we even used the kettle. The staff are way beyond excellent,friendly, helpful and polite, at all areas. The food is fantastic especially the desserts. As this was a couples hotel with no children it was lovely and quiet and we would highly recommend this hotel. Funchal itself is lovely but as everyone has said there are hills to go up and down! We walked into the town and it takes 30 minutes to the beginning of the town and another 15 minutes to get to the old town where the cable car is. Another lovely walk is along the promenade/lido area. Recommend Mona Lisa cafe for a chilled glass of wine. There is a lot of work being done at the harbour area and it looks like it will be lovely when finished, it does not stop you wandering around this area though. We travelled with Thomsons flying from Scotland but it appears they will no longer be flying to this area from Scotland in the future which is a great pity as we would have definately returned. Thanks to all in the hotel for making a very enjoyable holiday.More
