Alto Lido is a nice, clean. large and comfortable hotel in a very nice area just 15-20 minutes walk from Funchal centre. You can also take the courtesy bus from the hotel or a taxi for aprox 5 Euro. I got a verny nice suite in the 13th floor with an incredible view over the sea and hotels under us. The room was really nice and cosy and with the separate bedrom with own doorr to the balcony this was very nice. But it is 4 star, not 5. There are little things that lack. Example. The butter and, tomato, ham and cheese for breakfast is in avery cold tray. So the butter is impossible to spread on the toast or bread. I issued this problem to on of the breacfast staff and suggested them to take som butter packs in a bowl and place it next to the bread. Expected that to happen, but it was obviously in one ear and out the next. Also I thought it was strange that you have to pay 5 Euro to use the computers in reception for !72 hour. Also strang that you have to pay 6 Euro pr.person to use the jacuzzi. Little details like this is not a big deal... but what separates the best from the second best.
I did not eat at the restaurant as I heard it was not so great. But why bother with eating there? Just outside the hotel doors there are many nive restaurants.
The staff was very helpfull and polite. The reception crew wonderfull so all in all a very nice stay :-)
