Excellent hotel with large and clean rooms, comfortable beds, well equipped bathrooms and balconies offering stunning views of the ocean.
Very good restaurant offering many options for food and some options for wines.
A little bit strange, not many Madeira wines are offered. Desserts must be reviewed/reselected. Too artificial desserts in this moment.
Very friendly and open staff! Very good service!
Excellent preparation for the New Year reception and fireworks!
One time in a life, these New Year fireworks are a must!More
We enjoyed our visit so much a couple of years ago we went back for a 2nd time. We got a very good deal through the melia.com website which included EUR15 per room per day credit - handy for a round of drinks.
We were also upgraded to a very nice premium oceanview room with large balcony on the 8th floor. Superb views out over the attractive promenade and the ocean, albeit slightly overlooked by people on the higher floors due to the tiered design of the balconies. Room was fine with very comfortable beds (two small doubles pushed together) and spotless bathroom. Carpeting showing a few signs of wear and tear and we had to get the wifi and aircon fixed before they worked properly (commendably fast response from maintenance on both these issues though).
We did not eat in the hotel other than breakfast - there are so many good choices in town and within short walking distance of the hotel. Breakfast service seems to have deteriorated since our last visit. Some of the staff were fooling about and one swore after dropping a plate. Others were a bit surly and reluctant to let us have our breakfast outside - though this was overturned. Not really up to 5 star in this department. Didn't see much evidence anywhere of a manager on duty keeping everyone in line. Same story at reception where one member of staff had a strange attitude. I think he was just trying to be funny but his silly remarks came across as off-color.
We'll certainly come back again assuming the pricing remains attractive and the hotel has many good points, they just need to watch that complacency doesn't set in on the staff side.More
not quite 5 stars hotel
The room was big and clean but the staff seemed not interested at best. The hotel also advertised to have SPA but that was charged extra and quite overpriced. I did not tried the dinner restaurant but the breakfast menu was ok - but lacking in variety and sometimes tasteless.More
The hotel sits outside the main Funchal city centre however still plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and fresh fruit are alternated each day to provide some variety. Plenty of sunbeds by the pool and the hotel put on entertainment in the bar each night.More
