On the desk was a laptop showing pictures of what the rooms would be like once modernised. She told us we were lucky our... More

Went there with my friend last year. Yes it's not the best looking building from outside but the price and the room was really good. We asked for a room with sea view and it was granted. We were on high floor so the view was amazing. The breakfast was similar every day but more than enough to get you... More

We had a lovely week based here. The hotel is basic, and not pretty, which you can probably guess from the other reviews, and I guess this splits people's opinions. The amount charged (ours was was a room-only package deal which included flights) is so good that if you are aware of it and prepared for it, it is a... More

I was very apprehensive about this property having read some reviews on here. True, it is ugly, it needs refurbishing but is represents amazing value for money. For €25 a night I had a comfortable room, buffet breakfast included and it wasn't bad at all. There's no in room WiFi or minibar but for that price I wouldn't expect there... More

If you want luxury go somewhere else, if you want a cheap base to use to explore the island this hotel will suffice. Before you make any decisions on this hotel look at the cost, you get what you pay for. For all its faults and there are many this hotel will provide you with an enjoyable stay on the... More

Very long and narrow hotel, little dated, everything clean, nice gardens and pool area, breakfast limited, wished I'd picked somewhere closer to Funchal. Staff very very pleasant and helpful. Good restaurant opposite offering eat in or takeaway. Good pizza place opposite and upstairs,

Not the prettiest hotel from the outside but very good value for money. There was a blip on our first night when we were in a very noisy room facing the road. Thankfully the next morning a lovely girl on reception offered us a choice of rooms, both very quiet and spacious. The beds were very comfy and the sheets... More
