Good food, comfortable hotel
We stayed for a week in April on half board basis. We had a room with a sea view and balcony on the 4th floor, which was very clean and in good condition, a comfortable bed,a good shower over the bath and quiet. In room wi-fi was free and a good speed. Breakfast and dinner were both buffet style with an exceptional choice particularly seafood. Over our seven days we had smoked salmon , mussels, tuna, scabbard, sole plus plenty of meats to choose from.
The hotel is located on the main road into Funchal, with bus stops right outside the hotel including the hop on hop off tourist bus. Bus fares are per trip and very cheap compared to UK prices. It is a ten minute ride into the city centre. If you do a google street view don't be put off by the lack of an impressive frontage, once inside it is a very smart hotel. It has outdoor swimming pools plus a spa etc which we did not use. it is a five minute walk to a seaside promenade, away from all the traffic great for an evening walk with plenty of cafes to stop at.
If you need to eat out in the evening there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in easy walking distance and a large supermarket about 100 meters away with a smaller one just outside the hotel. If you are into coffee and cake turn right as you leave the hotel and the first coffee shop on the right is a gem, superb cakes.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful, explained the local bus services to us and gave us directions to local shops.More
Great hotel - don't go inclusive
Paid extra for a sea view on 10th floor and I thought it was worth the view. But the room was a bit small and bathroom cramped. Don't get me wrong, it was new and refurbished but felt only slightly better than a travel lodge in terms of the actual room.
The cupboard over the fridge was broken and kept scraping the floor. They're environmentally conscious which is great, with recycling bin, but it's tiny and fills up in a day. To be more sustainable they have a great initiative where you get â¬3 back for each day you waiver room service. I thought that was wonderful so I thought they could come every other day. But it didn't quite happen.. in addition, I asked for the bedsheets to be changed having had a fever for two days but after asking twice, I gave up.
If you love sitting poolside,you'll enjoy this place with three pools plus an indoor one and spa facilities. But I'm an explorer and get bored.
The food.... oh dear. It's a total free for all! Nobody checks your room number to allocate any tables. You just walk in and fight your way through. 2 nights of my week there, they shut the door as there was no space to sit. For brekkie, the omelette station was not open everyday. And for dinner, it was pretty much the same food everyday dressed up as world cuisine. You will get some bland meat, fish with rice and potatoes and plenty salads and cakes.
As a vegetarian, I found it ridiculously tough at this hotel! There's always a plain pesto pasta but I'm gluten intolerant. I must stress how wonderful the staff were and tried to ask me if they could make me anything, but didn't have a menu to choose from. My options of gf veg quiche, pizza, potato veg bake, polenta etc were all rejected and I was told they couldn't do it. We settled on risotto one night, reluctantly, as I'd eaten the side rice for my mains all week.... but didn't want to be a pain. It was just basmati rice with al dente veg in sloppy starch water, not even any parmesan. It was awful.
next day I got mash potato with veg.. where's my main?
Also, I enquired if they'd have a Portuguese food night, and apparently they did, but I never noticed any difference?! The food alone makes me want to request some money back.
The staff at reception and dinner were so friendly, not their fault. But shocking 4* food choice, not catering for veg or allergies?!
Great Base to get around. Great view. Great access to buses, taxis, hop on hop off. Staff mostly try their best and friendly. They allow you to use the phone to ring for excursions and restaurants. Great library.
But food not for me, rooms not up to the standard advertised (though perfectly nice), and entertainment very lacking.
Hopefully tried to give you a review where you can decide for yourself.More
We had a room with a sea view, the room was bright and very clean, as was the bathroom. There was no bath, but a large shower area with plenty soap and shampoo. The chambermaids are good at their job, room was cleaned each day and plenty of clean towels, we were on the 6th floor and our chambermaid was Olga who was friendly and helpful to us .We had dinner in the hotel on two occasions and could find nothing to complain about there. There is a buffet meal, so much choice and good quality. It is usually quite busy, so we didnt eat till around 7.30. The dining room staff work very hard. This is a friendly hotel, no complaints from us !Also have to mention the entertainment in the bar on Thursday Mar 31st when the folklore group were there, they brightened up the evening with their sing and dancing, so thank you to them.More
Four views monumental lido
We stayed here from 21 March until 28th March. We had a sea view on the 11 th floor, also we could see the mountains from the corridor by our door.
only 3 lifts but no problems. The food was good but we had to ask for eggs/bacon/cereal on occasions there was not enough staff and dishes were piled up on the counter usually dirty dishes are put straight on a trolley. We went to the happy hour and found that the coke was still the same price when one bar man served you but half price when the other served you. The entertainment was not to good the same 2 men on 3 nights but under different names. The whole hotel was spotless, as well as the pool areas. It was very handy for the local buses and the hop on/off buses stop across the road. Madeira is lovely but not if you are unable to walk because lots of steps and hills otherwise lovely place good hotel friendly staff.
The room we had had a shower over the bath and we had difficulty using the shower because we had not got much room, we couldn't get the temperature right before we had the shower because we couldn't reach past the screen to set the water temp first.More
