The pool and sun terrace both come with standout sea views at this modern hotel. And with shops, restaurants and the seafront right on the doorstep, it makes a great base.
This is a grand place just a minute’s walk from Funchal’s lido. It comes as no surprise then that it’s got great sea views, and one of the best spots to enjoy them is out on the sun terrace. This large platform on the fourth floor comes with two pools – one for adults and one for kids, and plenty of sunbathing space. And while there’s certainly no shortage of sunbeds and parasols, they’re not all crammed together, either. In fact, because they’re clustered around in different spots, this area has a really nice and spacious feel to it. A pool bar serving snacks completes the scene.
Elsewhere, you’ve got the likes of a fitness centre and a spa. The latter specialises in therapies like eye and lip contour treatments and pumpkin facials. More upbeat offerings, meanwhile, come in the form of cabaret and folklore acts.
Inside, bedrooms enjoy either the same views as the terrace, or ones overlooking the mountains. Style-wise, they’re simply decorated in a blue and cream colour scheme, plus they all come with cable TVs, hairdryers and balconies.
With an average temperature of 22°C, 71.6°F, the pool is surrounded by a wide terrace, dotted with sunloungers and parasols. Heated all year round, it is a great place to unwind and enjoy some sunshine.
This restaurant offers a buffet breakfast, an à la carte lunch, and a buffet, à la carte or vegetarian dinner, the stylish, strikingly decorated Atlantic offers the diner a wide choice of cuisine to enjoy.
The luxury spa offers a wide range of treatments to help you get the most relaxing experience from your stay. Treatments include hydro-massage, Jacuzzi®,Vichy shower, as well as a Roman bath and private relaxing room.

We stayed here in early January and were fortunate to have higher than average temperatures.
The hotel is well placed for exploring Funchal. We last visited the Island almost 30 years ago and it has obviously changed a great deal; not necessarily for the worst.
There is now much employment in the vast amount of hotels & restaurants & so the young do not have to leave to seek employment.
The hotel was clean & comfortable; we had a rear view which was quiet & pleasant enough.
The buffet service at breakfast and dinner was very good but for dinner we would have preferred an option of a more formal dining arrangement. As always some guests were piling their plates to over flowing; totally off putting!!
All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.More

Great Hotel for exploring Funchal
The hotel is roughly 45 minutes from Funchal Airport, I travelled with Thomas Cook. The staff are very friendly and helpful in answering any questions. The hotel as a whole was very clean and fresh looking, the cleaning was kept to a minimum during the day and carried out at night much to my liking. The buffet was excellent a wide range of food on offer to suit all cultures and tastes too. The pool area was very tidy and clean with an adequate number of sun loungers and night the pool side was used for entertainment after dinner which was very enjoyable - especially the maderian dancers.
Overall I had a very enjoyable 10 days in Madeira which was made special by my stay at Four Views Monumental. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to explore the island of Madeira!More
Just spent a week at the Four Views and the refurbishment is fantastic.All rooms,public areas and outside areas are spotless,good choice of food and staff are consistently helpful, hard working and polite.This is my second visit to this hotel and it does not disappoint and I will return.
Only suggestion for change I would have is to have the outdoor pool heated that would make such a difference particularly at this time of year.Overall an excellant hotel and in a great location for Funchal town.Loved it.More

Nice Friendly Hotel
A very nice clean and friendly hotel, in a great location within walking distance of Funchal or camera de lobos if your fit enough.
The bedrooms were spacious and kept clean by the hard working maids.
In the restaurant we could not fault the quality and the variety of food provided, especially the smoked salmon, prawns and muscles but then I love seafood.
If I had to nitpick and I know hotels have to make money, the wine being sold in the restaurant for 15.75 euros was on sale in the supermarket down the street for 1.44 euros albeit on offer from 2.89.
Would I recommend this hotel, yes without any question.More

Perfect for me
I have stayed here many times before. I booked a one bedroom apartment with Seaview.
It was well equipped, comfortable and kept spotlessly clean by the very friendly maid. I had a minor problem with wifi and my shower and both were sorted quickly.
I was half board and some days I swapped dinner for lunch and always enjoyed my meals. Last year, just after the renovation I didn't really enjoy the food but I saw a big improvement this time.
Twice a week Guest Relations run a tour 'behind the scenes' and it was very interesting.
I went to the 'thank God it's Friday' meal at the Pool Bar. If you are already Half Board it has a supplement of â¬7.50 without dessert and â¬9.50 including dessert. For that you get a glass of sparkling wine, a lovely Tapas style starter and then a choice of Peppered Steak, Steak Portuguese style or Steak on a Stone. I chose Steak on a Stone. It was a 400gram piece of fillet. I have had this dish many times in many different restaurants, but this was the first time that the 'stone' has been replaced with a fresh one half way through my meal in order to make sure that it was still hot enough!!!
Reception staff were happy to book me restaurants, tours etc.
Thank you everyone.More
