Hotel was great, we were in a junior suite just on B&B. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meal had a different theme each night. We ate there twice and both times were very good. The spar and pools were very quiet and we did not see any children in the hotel at all. Bar prices are ok and you...

The hotel was fabulous. Great choice for breakfast and always a friendly welcome from Lina. Rooms were good and beds were really comfortable. The only down side of the room was overlooking the park which is usually full of old guys playing cards, but that didn't detract from our stay. Facilities were excellent, there was always plenty of space around...

The restaurant was closed however a brilliant cold plate was delivered to our room as we were expected to arrive late. It just got better.. The Dining Room was spacious with attentive and friendly staff at all times. Our room was also spacious with a...

First visit 2years ago when very pleased with entire experience. This time upgraded to a suit which although very spacious didn't provide bathroom slippers and the towels were rough and very thin. No walk in shower and the bath was difficult to get in and out of and the area where the shower was showed signs of mould in between...

First time in Madeira, spending a rare week away as a couple. We wanted a treat, and to be within comfortable walking distance of the old town. With its spa facilities and pools this hotel ticked all the boxes. The big hotels on the western side of Funchal seemed quite a long way out, and a bit too 'mass market'....

There are lots of good things about this hotel. First and foremost is its location in the old town near loads of restaurants, near the cable car and market and a short walk into town. The hotel is clean. Breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. Lena was delightful and charming. The Captains Bar is very nice as are the...

We booked a junior suite room for our week's stay based on the previous Trip Advisor reviews and we couldn't have been happier. The room (excluding the additional lounge room that came with the suite) was very well sized and presented. Two very comfortable big beds, TV, air conditioning, lovely big window overlooking the sea and a generously sized bathroom....

Our first time to Madeira. Stayed here on our daughter's recommendation. We felt that the reception staff could not be bothered with helping guests. The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped (even with a mini kitchen). The hotel has no coffee shop, and limited bar opening hours. Staff (apart from reception) helpful and friendly.
