I booked a flights + accommodation deal through lowcostholidays for a friend and I and we chose Ocean Gardens. What a great choice! This is the most stunning hotel I've ever stayed in - the views over Funchal town and the sea are absolutely breathtaking and the gardens are so beautiful! The location is pretty much ideal if you want...

I read Tripadviser before booking. All of the reviews were brilliant. I was not disappointed. I am only half way through my holiday here. Stunning views. Large rooms. Lovely friendly hotel staff and would certainly come back. Not warm enough to enjoy the beautiful pool but there is always summer next year! Clean comfy room and stunning balcony. Some road...

Stayed for New Years. Absolutely a great place to view the fireworks. The staff went out of their way. Top notch. Room (suite) was clean and had a great view of the ocean. Breakfast was very good as well. Definetly highly recommend. The roof top gardens are spectacular.

The hotel is amazing value. As long as you don't mind a short trip into Funchal by bus (1.8 Euros) or on the courtesy bus it is great with fantastic views across the town. Breakfast was excellent whether you wanted fresh fruits, croissants or bacon and egg. The restaurant is also good - we were not on half board which...

It was a tremendous 7 days stay at Ocean Gardens. The staff members are friendly, helpful, professional and always courteous. Their shuttle bus is exceptionally convenient going back and forth to Funchal. Although it was a bit far from downtown Funchal, we enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the town during the day and night. The hotel grounds are always clean....

We booked the hotel because of the view. It did not let us down. The hotel is not in walking distance from restaurants and bars, so you need a car. Or you can also use public transport or a taxi. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the city and back twice a day. Room decor was very English....

Out of season gem of a hotel with excellent facilities, unobstructed views over towards the coast of Africa and the pretty bay where international cruise liners moor up en route to other scenic destinations. A ton of fascinating places too see, south or north of the island, are within easy reach (best by car). If your palate allows you to...

Absolutely stunning hotel, with beautiful terrace gardens. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a five-minute bus ride from Funchal, but the hotel offers a free shuttle service twice a day. A main bus stop is just outside anyway and the fares are very cheap. The views from our room and the hotel terrace were of the sea...
