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.

Lovely Hotel.......let down by restaurant.
We returned to this hotel in June 2015 after first visiting in July 2004. The building has been subjected to a very successful refurbishment with distinct improvements in all areas including the bright and airy rooms. The aircon works well as does everything else in the well appointed bedrooms which include a useful fridge, flat screen multi function TV, well appointed bathrooms and comfortable beds. The pool area is superb,with plenty of sunbeds and parasols,spotlessly clean pool and a pool bar. Service throughout the hotel is excellent,especially reception who are knowledgeable and helpful. Sadly the restaurant has deteriorated badly since 2004. Although much improved in design in the refurbishment, the standard of food served is not good, often barely warm, especially at breakfast, They seem to be trying to please too many people with a wide variety of dishes when concentrating on less dishes well presented would be better. I don't agree with those saying it was chaotic, as the staff worked very hard to quickly clear tables and prepare fresh settings for what was a very busy unit. The only other negative was the closure of the pool bar at 8 PM (or earlier) which meant if you wanted a post meal coffee outside in the lovely evening environment, you had to dash outside and hope you were lucky! Plenty of people we spoke to were of the same opinion.More

Fifth Time Visit
As good as ever . The nightly entertainment although good before is now excellent. One night we had three seperate types of entertainment. The pool area is spotless and most of the staff remembered us and as before were extremely helpful. An excellent location with buses on the doorstep and run around every 15 minutes to the centre of Funchal.. Another bonus is that the hotel is on the level.More

Good hotel in good location
The hotel was clean, modern and in a lovely location. It is a good walk into Funchal, which I enjoyed each day. There was never a shortage of sun loungers and the pool area is lovely. We had a mountain view, which was perfectly adequate, it overlooked a nice garden and despite there being a road directly below our balcony the traffic was minimal and didn't disturb us. The entertainment leaves a lot to be desired and almost every night we were sung at with the track 'California Blue' which I had never heard in my life before and will now never forget it (Roy Orbison I am told). I was surprised that the best entertainment were the local traditional dancers and singers. Rooms were clean and modern and all the staff were polite and helpful. There are large crowds of French and Germans, and as someone else stated they reserve large areas of the restaurant which makes it difficult sometimes to find somewhere to sit. Overall I would recommend this hotel and location, only down side was the wifi, no matter where we tried it just wasn't much good :o(More
Wonderful Hotel - very clean
Just back from 2 weeks at Four Views Monumental. First time half board and was worried as I am a very fussy eater, but the staff and food in the hotel was very good - so need not have worried. Only negative thing I can say - 'too many cakes' lol. Patricia, Elvio and Nelia looked after us in the Atlantic Restaurant, very efficient, friendly, helpful - excellent! Nelio looked after us in the bar - he was so attentive and friendly! The pool, sunbeds and poolside bar are on the 4th floor so it was very peaceful and relaxing (no noise from road below). There are 3 separate areas, the main pool, a childrens pool and then a rooftop area overlooking the pool - plenty of sunbeds in each area so spoilt for choice. Only 1 child in the children's pool during our stay so very quiet. Rooms - been refurbished recently - very clean - walk in shower. If I had to find fault - could you add another armchair? Rooms to front have sea view, rooms to back are supposed to have mountain view - but really they face onto a small church and lovely gardens (patio doors and windows are double glazed so did not hear any bells) - peaceful and have the sun in the evening. We played music on the balcony and had no issues. Madeira is lovely, would definitely go back - options for all. I think the OAP's have kept Madeira's beauty secrets to themselves - do NOT be put off if you are young. The Hole in 1 Irish Bar just a few minutes away from the Hotel has live music every night and is excellent if you fancy a change for the Hotel entertainment.More
