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.

Cosy, beautiful and excelent staff
First of all I have to talk about the staff. Excellent staff, very communicative, always helpful and ready to solve all the problems or doubts that we had. The hotel have a free parking lot that belongs to the little shopping that is next to the main entrance. (you receive a chip when you park the car, when you want to leave you give the chip on the lobby and they validate it and you don't pay anything). Advice, if you want to go to Funchal, when you leave the parking lot you are allowed to go trough the side walk instead of turning right. The pools are very nice (three, one for the kids, one outside and one inside), they are not very big but they are nice and warm. The Jacuzzi is very good. The breakfast is wonderful. You have almost everything you want and you can even ask to make an omelet. You will get a lot of fruit, cereals, warm bread (different kinds of bread), yogurts, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, fresh cheese, etc. We stay at a mountain view room on the 10th floor. It was a small and cosy room. The bathroom was large enough for two people get ready at the same time. We had a small problem with the shower that was solved by the staff 10min later. The towels where change if you wanted to and they were fresh and clean. A lot of people talk about the WiFi, it's not a deal breaker to me, but if you are worried about it, every room have a WiFi hot spot. On the TV you have some radios and the main channels including FOX, AXN, SIC Radical, SIC Mulher and so on. You have a lot of restaurants, pastries and bars nearby. You can always do a 10/15min walk to the Casino. If you want to stay at the hotel, you have some late night shows.More
Warm, welcoming stay throughout
This hotel is superb. Our room was spacious, light, comfortable and clean. The en suite, with large walk in shower and a bidet, was roomy and there was always an abundance of very hot water. We stayed half board, the biggest problem being to make a choice of all the delicious dishes before we finished with a good fruit salad. All the staff were helpful and friendly, warm and welcoming. Compared with the "4 star" hotel in Malta a few weeks ago, this deserves 6 stars. Saving for another visit now! The only criticism was that wifi was not always available in the room so I sometimes had to go downstairs with my laptop to check our day's plans; not a great hardship!More

Airy and modern hotel with clean rooms, comfortable beds and a kettle and fridge.The staff were very welcoming and friendly and were so very helpful with some queries we had. The breakfasts were amazing with so much choice and of a high standard. The bar had entertainment every evening with a restaurant offering good quality food at reasonable prices. The spa, swimming pool and gym .... great. No difficulty in recommending this hotel whatsoever.More

We stayed at the Monumental, Funchal, last week, absolutely could not fault the hotel, good Wi-Fi reception even on the top floor, great view, great room, great staff. Our only complaint is there was too much food, the quantity and selection was so good we have both put on weight!!More
We returned to this Hotel after a visit a few years ago. It has had an amazing makeover. The reception area and rooms are modern, bright, and seem more spacious. The staff are very friendly and go out of there way to help you. The dining room staff are very busy especially in the morning, but always have a smile on there faces. I would have no problem in recommending this Hotel, we hope to return at a later date.More
