Excellent value for moneyPosted Jul 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had booked a 7 night stay in one of the larger apartment hotels on the west side of Funchal. When we then checked the cost of flights from London Gatwick we found that the return flight home on the day of departure was comparatively expensive, presumably because this was a Bank Holiday Monday. We found that the cheapest flights were on the following Friday, so we then searched the web (on hotels.com) for reasonably priced hotels for the 4 intermediate nights between Monday and Friday. The total cost of the Bed and Breakfast accommodation at the Residencial Parque was considerably less than the savings we made on the air fares! The room was comfortable with interesting views from the balcony (rooms 31 to 36 have balconies). The hotel is conveniently situated within a short walk from the centre of Funchal close to many of the local bus routes and the Airport bus stop. Breakfast consisted of two very large rolls each, with butter, cheese and jam together with a pot of tea or coffee each - plenty enough for us. Would definitely visit again.

Very good location with a fantastic view.Posted Jun 25, 2013
Pros: Location and the view from the top terrase
Cons: the breakfast
Location: Just next to the city centre. about 3-4 minutes
It is a very good hotel, good location, very good value for money, just one thing concerned me, when I was booking, expedia website says there is buffet breakfast, but in reality you will get 2 baps alittle butter, the same little jam and a little triangle of cheese, 50mi of juice and a cup of coffee. that is it. When I have asked them about breakfast buffet, they have been looking at me with dropped jaws. They have heard about that.

maybe should be 2 star maxPosted Feb 26, 2013
Pros: Free wi-fi, cheap
Cons: no english-speaking tv, poorly lit/decorated/furnished room, no confidence in door locks
Location: 5 mins walk to harbour and the excellent supermarket at Anadia shopping centre, 1 min from aerobus stop no.3
Pretty tired-looking with threadbare/stained carpets and cig burned bedspread and old furnishings, and antiquated push-handle locks on the doors. Standard of maid service not brilliant. Tube tv with no english language channels. Breakfast is repetitive - 2 bread rolls, 1 cheese spread sachet and one preserve sachet with 1 butter spread, watery orange juice and tea or coffee. On the other hand there is free wi-fi, it was cheap, and staff were pleasant enough and it's only 5 mins walk to harbour/bus station and the excellent supermarket at almadia shopping centre, and 1 min from aerobus stop no.3

Friendly, comfortable, reasonably priced B&BPosted Sep 26, 2012
Pros: Friendly clean and comfortable. Good price and location near restaurants and centre of Funchal. Lift to all floors.
Cons: No air conditioning
Location: 10 minute walk to centre of old Funchal. Not suitable walk for infirm people as up a bit of a hill but has a taxi rank outside.
This is a 2* pension/hotel offering a B&B (coffee/tea/and rolls & butter/processed cheese & jam) experience at a very reasonable price. The bedrooms, bathrooms and public rooms are clean. There is a lift but no air-conditioning. The beds are comfortable. The bar is cheap. There is free wifi in the lounge/bar area. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The situation is handy for the centre of Funchal and there are numerous restaurants within a 10 or 15 minute walk. We have stayed there two years running for extra overnight stays at the beginning and end of 14 night stays in a 5* hotel and are likely to repeat the experience.
