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.
With an average temperature of 22°C, 71.6°F, the pool is surrounded by a wide terrace, dotted with sunloungers and parasols. Heated all year round, it is a great place to unwind and enjoy some sunshine.
This restaurant offers a buffet breakfast, an à la carte lunch, and a buffet, à la carte or vegetarian dinner, the stylish, strikingly decorated Atlantic offers the diner a wide choice of cuisine to enjoy.
The luxury spa offers a wide range of treatments to help you get the most relaxing experience from your stay. Treatments include hydro-massage, Jacuzzi®,Vichy shower, as well as a Roman bath and private relaxing room.
We travelled with Thomsons Holidays and had a wonderful week. The hotel is less than an hour the the airport. We arrived at 12.00 check in not until 2pm but there is a huge selection of restaurants, cafes and shops nearby so this wasn't an issue for us. Upon check in we found we had mountain view rooms but as the hotel was full we were unable to upgrade to a seaview room. This was a shame and next time I would book one of these rooms beforehand.
Our room was perfectly adequate, with 2 very comfortable beds, a good bathroom and balcony, there is a busy road but this did not disturb us at all. We found the nights very quiet and peaceful.
The pool area was spotless with plenty of sunloungers available. Initially the pool was quite cool but once in it was lovely. The entertainment was set around the pool in the evening at the pool bar. Some of the acts were slightly dodgy but very listening! We really enjoyed the parrot show right up until the lady brought out a huge python which terrified half the audience. I was sat at the front but if I'd been warned about the appearance of a snake I would have sat at the back!!
The restaurant was very good with plenty od seating areas. Each morning and night saw a great selection of food. We were very happy with what was available. My only issue being as a vegetarian a lot of the lovely fresh food on the salad bar was garnished with meat or fish meaning I couldn't eat these foods - very annoying indeed! The fresh fruit was wonderful as were the sweet selections.
The hotel has a small supermarket underneath it but if you turn right leaving the hotel there is a much bigger supermarket a few minutes away. Turning right you also have a wonderful bakery/coffeeshop. Which sells made to order sanwiches you can pre-order these to collect on day of departure for the flight home. The cakes were also wonderful.
We did a couple of the trios that Thomsons run we enjoyed the Enchanting East tour bur our favourite was the 4x4 trip. We were picked up at 8.45 dropped off at 2pm outside the hotel and had a fun filled day exploring lots of the parts of Madeira that cant be reached by a coach also did some thrilling off road driving.
Madeira is a lovely Island this hotel is ideally situated to explore it. A bus stop is just opposite the hotel, a walk into the old town takes around 20-30 minutes.
Overall we can a wonderful week.More

Great place to stay
The hotel is lovely, swimming pool and sun terrace is great. Views from the sun terrace are outstanding. Was our first time to Madeira and would highly recommend, very clean and very pretty. We traveled as a couple and stayed for 12 days half board and would not recommend as very disappointed with the food, generally not very warm and didn't have a very good choice. Rooms were lovely, TV, Fridge, air conditioning and modern bathroom. Entertainment wasn't the best but the hotel is situated very central to bars and restaurants. Our favorite bar was The Hole in One, great atmosphere and friendly staff. We would stay at Four Views again but on a self catering or bed and breakfast basis only. Make sure you book a sea view as the views at the rear are not very good, quiet but not pleasant to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine.More

We have just returned from a 1 week B&B stay and enjoyed every minute. Its a very clean hotel which is central to bus stops, places to eat & the coast. Central Funchal is an easy 15-20 minute stroll but if you don't like to walk the buses are regular.
We were on the 9th floor with a fabulous ocean view. The pool area was spotless. The only reason I didnt give a 5 rating is the bar was the most expensive we went to on the islandMore

Central to bus route, shops, restaurants,
This hotel has recently been renovated and is really nice inside. It is central to all local amenities. A really good price from Jet2 for half board in a 4 star hotel. One negative was the fact of no ironing board being available in room or at hotel reception; its difficult to iron nice dresses on a table top!More

A good stay at the Four views
Spent two weeks here in August and had a great time, although we have stayed here once before this was before the refurbishment and I have to say it was like walking in to a different hotel. It is modern and up to date but does not feel sterile like some modern hotels. The food was good and plentiful with a nice outdoor bbq on a Tuesday as part of your half board experience. Having read some of the reviews on here before going I can't understand the grumpy reputation of the dinning room staff. We found them to be welcoming and most of them always had a smile. On the odd occasion we saw a couple with a grumpy face but lets face it we all have bad days. In fact I have nothing but praise for the dinning room staff, on the last day of our holiday my friend was not feeling to well and didn't come down for dinner they asked after her and asked if there was anything they could send to the room for her. I was very impressed by the recycling arrangements in the hotel and took advantage of the money off your bill for non cleaning and towel change, this earned us 44 euros back over the two weeks and I have to be honest I always make the bed even if the maid is coming in (my husband tells Win, Win as far as I am concerned. On arrival we had a bottle of water and some fruit, which our friends did not get so I can only presume this is because we were returning guests, a nice touch. The is a kettle, fridge and hair dryer in the room so no need to bring those with you, however beware of the shower even though it has been mentioned on trip advisor several times hubby still managed to get hit in the face with the powerful water spray and flood the bathroom. Overall we had a great time and will be back at some point in time I am sure.More
