We were 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 14 staying in Apartment 11 at Palheiro Village. The apartment is really fantastic and we loved it - extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated, with great views over Funchal. There are views from the main terrace outside the sitting room and also from smaller terraces off both bedrooms . The (huge) double bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
The Manager, Amr, was very kind and attentive and allowed us to use the apartment long after check out time.
Palheiro Village is, like most of Madeira, built on a hillside. Apartment 11 is at the lower part of the resort near the gates to the village. The Village Forum, where the swimming pool is located, is higher up the very steep hill and was quite a challenge to the less fit among us.
The swimming pool area was lovely and not too busy. There's an honesty bar, a games room, ping pong table and a toddler room, plus more of those fantastic views.
We used buses (no.38 from just outside the gates ) to and from Funchal (7.80 per single journey for the 4 of us ) but it was a bit of a pain and a car would definitely have been useful to explore the island more widely.
