With shops, restaurants and the seafront right on the doorstep, the Four Views Monumental makes a great holiday base.
The grand Four Views Monumental is just a minute’s walk from the lido – one of the liveliest spots in Funchal.
Great views are a given at the Four Views Monumental. One of the best places to enjoy them is out on the sun terrace – or from the balcony of one of the sea-view rooms.

Hidden gem and further potential
We visited here by accident - so many of the Funchal hotels have similar names these days! We also visited in February, before UK school half term week. On arrival, the entrance to the hotel, squeezed in between cafes, tour bus shops and one of the many Spar shops around the island, was underwhelming. Indeed, the large and fairly quirkily-furnished reception area did not immediately offer reassurance we had reached a desirable location. All change on speaking with the reception staff. Polite, welcoming, friendly, helpful. Just what we needed after a long journey. We were only staying three nights, so any decent room would have been adequate. However, the message sent through our booking agent about preferring a quietly-located room did not seem to have got through, so we were offered two rooms in different parts of the hotel to see which suited us best. Wonderfully customer-focussed. The first room we accessed was newly refurbished. Very clean, with modern quality facilities including a double walk-in shower. However, the outlook to the rear of the hotel was onto a busy cafÃ© with a road in between. We were very happy to instead accept a studio room in the far end of the hotel. We were booked half board, but this room came with a sink, fridge and microwave which proved useful for lunchtime and storing drinks. This part of the hotel is less recently refurbished, however it was very adequate, also clean and had the benefit of a bath and also a side sea view. Using the restaurant was a rather stressful experience! We discovered that the hotel was almost full, despite being low season, and it appears to have accommodated several large international (many non-UK) tour groups who had reserved tables for eating en masse. Strangely these large groups always had the tables adjacent to the sea view windows. In addition, it seemed that there were guests who were staying for multiple weeks, who perhaps had an annual winter visit, who also ate together. Many of the hotel guests (average age well into retirement) ate early into restaurant service and there was scarcity of tables for couples in particular. The table arrangement led to some couples being 'inserted' into long refectory-like table spaces, although this did not equate to socialising with those around due to language differences. It felt like we had reluctantly gone back to school! Having got over this rather unusual placement exercise, the calibre of the food made it all worthwhile. Lots of freshly-produced food with good variety and splendid presentation, although once again the buffet service seemed to exaggerate the 'elbows at dawn' behaviour of some guests, leaving me feeling frenzied at times. Also, apparently there is no coffee/tea available with dinner - unclear about this. Our disappointment in the hotel was confined to the indoor pool and Jacuzzi. This appeared to be in a poor state of maintenance and we rapidly retreated from our only visit, showering down thoroughly in the only cold shower. In contrast, the external pool was very pleasant, but up on a higher part of the hotel it was subject to the considerable prevailing winds and only the robust used it at this time. There is a huge hotel under construction immediately opposite the hotel. It's fascinating to watch the large crane, however the drills are noisy from dawn to dusk, including at the weekend. Overall, this hotel offered extremely good value for money, however there is opportunity for further refurbishment and I can imagine that at other times of year it may feel more vibrant with a wider range of guests. It is a shame that there are no grounds to enjoy, the Lido area is very densely built-up - but convenient for public transport and access to Funchal.More
We stayed at this hotel the last week in January, and were really happy with all aspects, the rooms, the food, the facilities were all very good. The staff are helpful, the reception is manned 24 hours I think. The location is good, with shops and restaurants all around. You can travel into Funchal on one of the frequent local buses, or get a taxi. We walked about halfway I to Funchal, but stopped at the Savoy tourist information shop as they had bargain prices for tours of the island . But be warned! You have to sit through a 90 minute "presentation" all about a new Savoy hotel they are constructing, basically this is to try to get you to sign up to a timeshare, and its a bit tough if you decline to join. Apart from that, we found Funchal to be an interesting city, and we had a great holiday.More

Nice two weeks
Location is good, many services and restaurants are near, about 2 km to Funchal city center, possible to reach also walking. Breakfast was pretty good, with different kind of foods, also for vegetarian food. Lots of local fruits... We had room in 8th floor which was pretty good, low noise from the back street, although not the sea and sun side - but it was our choice. Only thing that was a little annoying was the wall between two rooms and both had tv set on the same wall, and if neighbor had tv on with normal volume it came through the wall easily. From the opposite wall with other room no tv voice at all. Walls have isolation but when two tv set are installed very close to the wall - sounds come through. But, once we put tv on with normal volume and the neighbor understood what happens and they stop watching tv loudly and late. The hotel have also pretty good gym which is free for the hotel guests. It is open for local people too for some money. Pool is good for morning swimming and there is also pool for smaller kids. Pool are have nice bar for drinks and some food. Hotel offers also towels for the pool are free of charge. The Spa we did not try this time, and have no experience on that. On the other hand I felt a luck of marketing to the Spa services, one small leaflet, and thats all. It was even quite tricky to find the Spa, due it was in the old part building. Mainly the visitors were older people from England and German. Hotel was quite and clean. We can recommend this hotel after our experience.More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in July 2016 and had the most amazing time. The hotel was beautiful and our room was amazing (although we would have preferred a room with a better view - in future would pay extra for this). The food was lovely. We went half board, and breakfast was a particular highlight. There was such a massive range to suit everyone's tastes, from freshly cooked omelettes, pastries, continental selection, fruit, and definitely try the bacon, it's so good. For dinner, the menu is placed outside the restaurant each morning so if you don't fancy what's on offer, you can go out for dinner. There's something for everyone though, and the BBQ night was a highlight. The drinks bar is great, the bartenders are really lovely. The mojitos were a favourite. In the evening, entertainment takes place by the poolside. One highlight of the whole holiday was the Madeira folklore dancing. This was so fun to watch and we even got to join in. This hotel is in an amazing location, perfect for wandering down along the seafront, and it's a lovely walk into the old town too. This hotel was amazing, and we couldn't have had a better stay. We have recommended the hotel to everyone, and my boyfriends parents are travelling here in May as they were so impressed by how highly we spoke of it. Would definitely return, had such an amazing time!More
