Stayed here for a week. 16-23.05.2016. We found this to be a really good hotel. They staff were friendly. They restaurant was one of them best we have been in. Food was always hot. It was also well presented. Cleaning of them rooms were very good. All in all we had a really nice time here. They hotel itself was well presented with no dingy bits anywhere. I would definitely recommend staying here....More
Good 3 stars hotel, but for 4 stars it is average at most.
Location, general staff attitude. Hotel building and room itself were fine and I could not complain about that. There was a nice pool as well with possibility of renting beach towels for free. Good WIFI in the room which is not that frequent.
Breakfast - many people wrote that breakfast is poor but it is really poor. Choice is there but food quantity is really bad, actually one of worse I ever experienced. I understand that meat and cheeses quality can be bad but bread and rolls that are not fresh is too much. Also be prepared for organizing your cutlery yourself as it will not be on the table quite often...also seems that they have limited number of mugs, food is not being replaced quickly after eaten by other guests etc... Room cleaning - cleaning personnel will clean your room each day - regardless of you wishing it or not. Late check out - staff will not go extra mile to provide that. Pool restaurant - you cannot pay with card.More
Madeira in the wind
Things started to go wrong pretty soon on our 2 weeks holiday at the Four senses monumental spa and lido.When we got to Madeira the plane was diverted to Tenerife because of 30 miles an hour cross winds on the small runway at Madeira.We landed in Tenerife half an hour later where we sat on the runway for nearly 4 hours.The pilot said we were waiting for a break in the weather on Madeira.It didn't come so then he said we had to fly to Gran Canaria because all the rooms on Tenerife were full.We arrived in G.C.half an hour later.We sat in arrivals for over 2 hours with another planeload from Gatwick,trying to find out where we were sleeping that night.I shall pass on reviewing the A.C. Hotel Gran canarla as we were only there for one night.We had to get up early for a 9o,clock flight to Madeira.we were on the plane on time but some other people got the wrong time so we had to sit on the plane for over 2 hours.We finally got to our hotel late in the afternoon.The 2 times we were left waiting on planes they gave everyone a half glass of water. The four senses Hotel monumental had a lot of tired people to cheer up but.Unfortunately they didn't manage it with my wife and I.The food was of an average with the many Spanish hotels I have stayed at.Not really my cup of tea.The entertainment was worse than any karaoke I have ever seen.At least we knew what was coming on our second week and we went out every night.The cleaning staff were excellent,the waitresses very good and the barstaff were Ok.The Rep was vague with any information he could bring us.More
We went over Easter and did not have the room cleaned on three days due to staff holidays the dining room was chaotic the first 2 days no one collecting dirty dishes and when they did they where piled up on the counters and kept falling off The food was not filled up and we had to ask for bacon/eggs on three occasions. there was no show cooking for three day either. Staff always polite and helpful. good location easy to get buses, not very good in Maderia if you have walking difficulties too many steps and hills. indoor pool area very good.

I visited this hotel in September 2015 and said I would return and I was luck enough to have made a return trip in April 2016.
The hotel is excellently situated in a nice area of Funchal a short bus/taxi ride into town. It is surronded by nice bars, restuarants and shops. A number of travel agents are around the local area which are much cheaper than those on offer with the travel company.
We visited the hotel restuarant at around 18.40 on our first evening - big mistake as it was packed. We found it was better to go earlier or later then it wasn't too bad. The food was lovely each night with plenty of options.
The pool area was always very clean with lots of sunloungers available. We found the evening entertainment a little repetitive but did really enjoy the night when the traditional madeiran dancers visited.
On my previous trip I had a room facing the back of the hotel this time I paid a little extra to have a sea view room the money was very worth it. The room was lovely on the 7th floor. It was lovely to sit on the balcony with a drink before settling down. Although on the first few nights my neighbour enjoyed to watch TV with the volume on loud, luckily they left and the next neighbours weren't as loud!!!
I would definitely return to Madeira and this hotel.More
