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.

Great hotel with five star views. Came here just as the hotel had been renovated so it is brand new basically, amazing rooms with the comfiest beds wardrobes and top of the range bathrooms :) would definitely stay here again and plan too. Good choice of food and great taste, a couple of people weren't happy with the food as it isn't red hot but it is a buffet style restraint unless you have ordered. Perfect sun trap for sunbathing up on the fourth floor too :) More

Brilliant location. A little out of the centre but a lovely walk there and back (would recommend a taxi or bus back if you don't like or can't walk up hills) bit other than that can't fault it. Hotel and spa absolutely gorgeous and rooms are spotless, no faults what-so-ever. Food is lovely and a good choice. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Plenty of sunbathing areas and lovely sea views at the front, 3 pools with one indoors, so you can't go wrong. Local amenities brilliant as well. Staff very very friendly, helpful, polite and like to have a joke with you :) perfect holiday. Definitely coming back here again but for longer. Can't wait to book again!!!!!More
Opened too early
We arrived at the Four Views Monumental on the 3rd March for a two week holiday booked with Thomas Cook. Two of the main reasons for booking were the recent comprehensive refurbishment and the newly equipped gym. From the outset it was apparent the refurbishment was still ongoing with the constant hammering and drilling being complemented by the smell of fresh paint and varnish. On entering our room we were met with wires hanging out of the wall, the TV laying face down on the suitcase holder and light bulbs were missing. An added irritation was that the gym was still in development and resembled a workshop rather than a workout centre. The following morning we had no hot water. The Thomas Cook representative faced a number of angry guests during her meet and greet and it actually got quite heated, unlike the water. Although non of the problems raised were her fault it did seem the odds were against her when the drilling started mid way through and then the electricity went off. It seemed like a sketch from 'Benidorm' which was even more amusing when she told a guest who stood up twice to raise complaints that whilst his behaviour may be acceptable in Benidorm it was not acceptable in Madeira !!! She did however resolve the hot water problem very quickly but many other factors were out of her control. Such as the food not being labelled and frequently being lukewarm. I am writing this now because yesterday I started to write and then we decided to give the hotel an opportunity to finish the work before writing a review, but have just come back to even more problems it seemed appropriate to write. Yesterday we came back at 4pm to face three hours of hammering from the floor above, and a phone call to reception had no effect. This morning from 9 until we went out at eleven it was constant drilling. On returning today we had to advise reception that for the second time the room key card was not working and an engineer came to the room and reset the card reader. Great we thought a relaxing coffee and read our books on the balcony, but low and behold there are now three workmen in the corridor removing all the presumably newly fitted door illumination panels. The bottom line is that the hotel opened too soon and Thomas Cook should not have taken taken bookings until they new it was ready. We only booked 10 days before the trip so Thomas Cook should have known and advised us accordingly. Three days of our break have been significantly disrupted due to being placed in an unfinished hotel, which is a real shame because in a few weeks time The Four Views will be really nice. The staff, especially those in reception are very helpful and try their best, but they must be feeling the pressure of constant complaints. Once complete the hotel facilities will be very good and the rooms are bright and obviously have a new feel to them. If your coming next week don't be put off because hopefully the majority of issues will be resolved by then. But if your coming tomorrow think twice. PS - the gym opened today but there is no information to tell anyone, but them again there is no hotel information available anywhere accept asking the hard working rep or receptionists.

The new Four Views Monumental Hotel
We came to this Hotel especially to see the re-furbishments after its closure late 2013. The Hotel opened to the staff few days before we arrived March 3rd and we are still here at the time of these comments. We were totally gob smacked as they say in the UK. They have done a fabulous job in the short time they had and opened on time. This of course left a few small problems that needed finishing, like the new TV powering up. Everything we listed was was fixed within a very short time the same day. People who visit for the first time should not be disappointed as almost everything has been changed for the better, Readers who read old reports will be in for a big surprise. New pool area. New open reception layout. Better lounge-bar and entertainment area. The Management have obviously listened to the visitors. Regular returning visitors are in for a big surprise. The rooms are beautiful with new bathrooms. The showers are outstanding albeit the rooms are the same size in most cases. The Hotels outward structural appearance has not changed other than a few modifications to the higher balconies and a excellent paint job keeping its iconic and Monumental status in the land of Hotels. The staff are the same people who remain as welcoming as usual. Even they love the new look. Well done everyone who has made the difference and if you ask why I haven't added photographs, you need to see for yourself. We will be back in April for more of the same. More
