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.

Incredible value for money!
I visited for a week this August with my boyfriend. As the taxi pulled up, we were apprehensive as the entrance is fairly hidden and surrounded by souvenir shops, car rental places, etc. However, as soon as we walked into the hotel we realised how gorgeous the hotel is. It's very modern, the rooms are spacious and the service is fantastic. In your room you are provided with a form to fill in - for each day you opt to not have your room cleaned you are given a €3 voucher to spend in the bar. The pools are quiet and there are always sun loungers available. The location of the hotel is amazing - most of the top restaurants on the island are within a 5-10 minute walk. Breakfast is pretty good, large selection to choose from. We loved it so much we're planning on coming back next summer! More
Very good hotel!
We stayed in the hotel for one week and had an apartment on 2nd floor. It had a rather small bathroom with bath, two one person beds with flatscreen, a kitchenette well equiped, a cosy corner with sofa and 2nd flatscreen, a small storage room ( only apartments at the end of the corridor have these - 219,319,...)and a terrace. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are in buffet with a large variety (daily soup, first dishes both cold and warm, main dishes, desserts). For breakfast they even make omelette à la carte. Personnel is very friendly. Restaurant and bar are located on the 4 floor, next to the pool and sun terrasses.More
Fantastic staff made our stay perfect
My husband and I stayed at the Monumental Lido hotel last week with our 14 month old baby. We were blown away by the wonderful staff at this hotel. They literally couldn't do enough for us to make sure we had everything we needed for the baby. More than this, they were extremely efficient and pleasant at all times and always had a smile and a friendly word for the little one. We also couldn't fault the food and facilities in general at this property. There was a great range of foods to choose from at the breakfast buffet, and although the hotel was busy, there were always tables available. Similarly with the pool area, there was never a problem with getting sun beds. In terms of location, it is very convenient to the lido and a 30 minute walk into Funchal. There is a bus stop outside, but we walked everywhere. There are also some excellent restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. More
Not an adult only hotel as stated!!
Excellent rooms, reception lobby, and fascilities. Friendly helpful staff. Cant fault the hotel....except it isnt an adult only hotel as Tui travel agents state!! 1 week a year my partner and i get to escape together child free as they vacate with their grandparents. We devided this year to go somewhere different and was convinced by travel agent to try madeira but especially this hotel as it was adult only.....ooooh sounds nice, peaceful and relaxing.. . Oh no there must have been about 30 kids at one point. In out in out splashing other guests from the pool. Screaming at top vocal range. Messing by the pool and jumping in fully clothed umpteen times in one nite. The same nite nearly having a fatal accident as they shouted down to family from the edge of the roof top.. ...how they got there i dont know! Panicked guests out their seats with fear. Sorry but not what we expected as it stated it was an adult only hotel. Many kids were foreign but not all. The food was on the cool side and no way of guving it a boost via a microwave. Food was repetitive most nights 2 different fish and a beef dish usually roast or steak. The same deserts each night also. After bbq night there was an abundance of meat the following morning and night in which they had tried to reinvent a new dish. The hotel and rooms were exceptional, bright and fresh. All staff had time to chat or smile. Bar staff and dining waiters eager to help and advise where to go or find things outside the hotel and locally. Pool area was pristine and the caretakers again eager to help you. Now being a couple in our 30s we like to get out and visit a bar or two and watch the world go by.....erm slight problem not one in the area. Plenty of restaurants but they didnt welcome those who didnt care to dine....which meant the pool bar was the only option with a guy playing the keyboard or guitar each night or an act or two screaching a tune. Same songs different act each night. Well the shock was the cost of drinks. I dont drink normally but it was cheaper for 2 alcoholic drinks at €11.25 than a pint of coke a pint of soda water and a bottle of sparkling water at €14 its practically a pound to the euro so you can imagine the shock especially when thedes nowhede else to drink. Imagine if you were only bed and breakfast and had to dine each night. We spent €100 a day on drinks alone and we didnt start in the alcohol till 9ish each night. We wondered why many tables played cards at night and we soon learnt it past the time and bought ourselves a pack! Never nad a holiday let down like it before, all the excitement and the bubble burst after the 2nd night came. Theres not much to do other tham sun atje and read during the day either. Fuchal is beautiful but done in half a day. The cable car ride and toboggan were the best so much fun you want to do it all again but our holiday company charged €30 for pick up to cable car and the beautiful botanical gardens tucket at the top of the mountain and then an extra 15 per person to go down by the famous toboggan baskets which you have to experiance if visiting.....not a cheap day at all. Christiano ronaldo museum is a must for all footy lovers and the cheapest thing to do at €5. The island is beautiful with lush green trees bright flowers and colourful buildings and spectacular views all whivh come FREE. Theres no beaches unless u travel quire a distance or visit the island of porto santo which is a full 12hrs trip via cruise ship. Very few shops locally all in town which is a 40min walk or bus ride away. Shops shut at teatime so evening walks dont have much going for em! And none of your usual holiday tack shops that amuse you with there quirky novelties or souvenirs for loved ones. All in all great hotel but not cheap for drinks and not adult only as stated. No nightlife or bars locally. Everything is hilly with some roads at a 40% angle takes its toll on your leg muscles and not ideal for those who have dufficulty walking or dicky hearts or even a pram to push! Beautiful and lush island. Ideal for those who like to sit and sunbathe by pool and do nowt else!! Ticked it off the bucket list......been there done that couldnt find a holiday shop to get the tshirt!More

Relaxed atmosphere and enjoyable place
Family stay for 2 weeks with 2 teenage daughters. Overall the hotel is excellent; labyrinthine in design and modern in appearance. The location is superb - 30 minute walk into Funchal and 300 yards from the seafront. The breakfast buffet was excellent as was the evening meal generally although some repetition and 'creative' use of leftovers is inevitable. My daughter struggled as a vegetarian as many of the veggie dishes had previously appeared in meat dishes but there is still enough to choose from. Wednesday night BBQ is the highlight. The clientele is a relaxed combination of many nations. Without being patronising this hotel thankfully does not attract the 'all-inclusive heavily tattooed drink all day' tourists. There is no mass reservation of sunbeds at 6am and there is always space around the pool in one of the many sunbathing areas. A very chilled out and easy going place. There is evening entertainment every night at the outdoor bar. Lots of variety from the usual 'keyboard-driven cheesy euro-singalongs' to traditional Portuguese dancing and acoustic combos. To be honest we found this a bit much by the second week and so it's well worth taking a stroll in the local area after dinner. My only minor criticisms are as follows: 1. Reception staff - feel free to say hello and smile - we don't bite. 2. Room bills - very hard to keep track of what goes on your bill as bar staff don't always give copies of receipts. We only asked for these by the way in week 2 after mysterious €80 charges appeared on our bill. When asked, staff just said, "Oh sorry, that shouldn't be on there." My tips would be: 1. Resist the temptation of shopping in the Spar stores next door every day. Head across the road to the left and down the hill to the Pingo Doce supermarket and stock up on water, snacks etc. as it is much cheaper. 2. Pay room bill after 1 week if staying for 2 weeks just to keep an eye on spending. 3. Hit happy hour at the bar from 6pm. 4. Use the gym - it is fantastic and also has exercise classes (ask at desk in gym). 5. Rush hour at breakfast is 8.45 onwards but before that is lovely and quiet and you can even sit outside. 6. Check out Cafe Qasbah at the Lido (Sunday night jazz is great). 7. Walk into Funchal for a night out. Left out of hotel, 15 minutes, over bridge then right past the Pestana Carlton takes you along the seafront. Head for the Old Town and Rua de Santa de Maria - great restaurants. 8. Take a taxi tour to see the island. We got an 8 seater opposite the hotel. €140 for the whole day, we saw Porto de Moniz and other stunning sites. 9.30-5pm. Taxi driver knew everything and we set our own timetable. 9. If travelling with Thomson, don't do their Monte cable car trip. A rip off. Work out the logistics and do it yourself. 10. Controversial but my opinion - the toboggan experience is not all it is cracked up to be. Felt like an overpriced, cash production line of mass tourism. Simply not as charming or memorable as people say. 11. For kids - hit the water park near the airport. Uncrowded, cheap and great slides. We took a taxi which cost €30 each way but there may be buses. 12. Save money by not having your room cleaned everyday. We had a great holiday even after a 2 day delay getting there due to high winds preventing us from landing! Many thanks to all the staff at the hotel, please maintain your very high standards and don't let Madeira become the next Majorca. If you need any advice about planning a holiday there feel free to contact me.More
