Great Place to Stay!
The hotel is very beautiful and provides a relaxing place to stay. There is a small but convenient market on the grounds as well as a few restaurants affiliated with the resort. Some people choose an all-inclusive option but I used breakfast only. The meal was the same every morning but provided a lot of options that I liked. The location is away from the city of Funchal but the city can be reached easily by the highway and the resort is very close to the airport. For this reason there will be noise at times from incoming planes, although the airport is not as busy as a major city airport. The customer service is very good. The people who work here are very friendly and willing to help you with anything that you need. One downside is that there are a lot of hills and stairs, but this is mostly unavoidable in Madeira. One other nice thing is that the resort is next to one of the beautiful walks in the island, the peninsula. If you want somewhere peaceful and relaxing to stay, I recommend Quinta Do Lorre.
