The view was amazing, the hotel was very well furnished, and extremely well maintained, the staff were so friendly and obliging, this is our second time there and we would recommend it to anyone.
A suggestion to the hotel would be to install a good powered telescope or have some good powered binoculars, to take in the view and also for any marine life that is at sea. My husband went on a whale watching trip and saw lots of pilot whales, which would be visible from the hotel if a telescope or binoculars were available.
Fantastic view, comfort room, quiet place, kind staff.
Very nice view and garden.Clean and comfortable rooms.
Rooms next the road but this was not such disturbing and breakfast could be varied.
This hotel is beautifully furnished very clean and totally relaxing. It is perfect if you want a relaxing week in the sun with lovely view of funchal and no stress. It was perfect for us but wouldnt suit families or teenagers.
It was inconvenient that the hotel did not offer a money exchange service and there are no shops close by
The Staff were very helpful and supportive. A special recommendation for the Breakfast Staff who made every effort to ensure that everything was well stocked. Hotel meals were pretty good. The cooking and presentation of the meat was not as good as the fish. The grilled salmon is a treat.
The best thing about the hotel is also its worst thing. It's out of town on a cliff overlooking the sea on one side and the bay on the other. Noise from the busy road that runs along the front of the hotel can be a little noisey in the early mornings. If you want an 'out of Funchal' location then this is the one. Buses fairly regular and take 15mins to town. Taxis costs e10. Do not book a taxis from the hotel or you will pay 'over the odds'. If leaving there to the airport book a taxis yourself when in town - cost e20... Via the hotel e33!
Fabulous views, peace and quiet, excellent staff, good restaurant attached.
Small room, no coffee/tea-making facility, no iron, wifi restricted to tiny area around the modem.
We could not fault the hotel. It is on a cliff with breathtaking views across Funchal Bay. It is a little remote but on the other hand it is very quiet and peaceful. We didn't mind going into Funchal by the courtesy bus or even by local bus as the stop was outside the hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The rating of "Fabulous" is well justified.
The breakfast could have offered more variety.
Stunning views, beautiful gardens & terraces around the pool area. Helpful, friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet selection was good, including fresh fruit every day. The on-site restaurant has a friendly atmosphere & offers a good selection of snacks & dinner menus to choose from.
The only down side was the traffic noise, in particular between 6am - 7.30 am, when the regular bus service starts the daily runs in & out of Funchal. Hadn't planned on being awake quite that early on holiday ............ !
The view from the room with bay view was amazing on New Years Eve.
Otherwise the hotel is a fair bit from Funchal and the hotel area west of Funchal.
Great view, quiet, very nice hotel
Far from town, not a problem if you rent a car during your stay or use bus
