beautiful hotelPosted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: Pool area and downstairs bar. Staff.
Cons: Uncomfy beds, lack of WiFi, hot breakfast
Location: Big hill and quite a trek to old town. Great scenery though.
We enjoyed our stay here.. The rooms were clean, modern and just what we needed for our 5 day break. All the staff were very friendly and polite. They were genuinely happy to help and we felt like their guests. The views from all angles are stunning. It is a bit of a walk to the old town but we were advised of this before we came. It would be nice to have the option of a double bed too. The only thing that really let's the hotel down is the hot breakfast options. Not very appealing and gave us both upset tummy. We were fine when we stuck to cereals and pastries. This and the WiFi is not always available and we never had WiFi in the room as advertised.

Nice hotelPosted Jan 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
The room was nice with a great patio looking over the harbor. The indoor pool, sauna, steam bath, and hot tub were in the spa and cost an additional 5€ per day per person. They were very nice though. Food at the pool side restaurant was quite good. Free LAN Internet with a deposit for the cable was great.

Amazing Views Of Funchal And The SeaPosted Nov 6, 2010
We loved the floor to ceiling windows that afforded us incredible view over the city and out to the sea. I loved watching the cruise ships arrive and depart, especially when it happened at sunrise or sunset. The hotel is not an easy walk uphill but there is a free shuttle bus to the city center for those who aren't up to the challenge. If you are walking, it's necessary to leave through the back of the hotel, through the parking lot, in order to get to the street to descend into the city. On our last day, we booked the shuttle bus to take us back up to the hotel, but it never arrived so we had to take a taxi. I doubt this happens often, it was low season and there wasn't much demand for the shuttle. It was probably a miscommunication. This was our only problem at the hotel. All else went well, the breakfasts were very good, though the coffee in the machines was disappointing.

Newly refurbishedPosted Nov 16, 2009
Newly refurbished hotel in a good location for the main attractions of the town. Good reasonably priced restaurants 10 mins walk away. However be prepared for the uphill walk back. Hotel provides a courtesy bus service and local buses pass by.
