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...

The hotel is lovely with fantastic views over Funchal and the Sea, all rooms have a sea view and all have a balcony to enjoy the views. The hotel and restaurant staff are super they make the holiday very special, stayed there twice can't wait to go back next year.

This Hotel, whilst a little on the pricey side for meals, is very "Madeira". Standards are excellent and all the staff friendly and exceptionally helpful. All rooms have a view out over the Atlantic and Funchal harbour. The local bus stops right outside the Hotel and goes in to the centre of town in about 15 mins at under 2...

This hotel is lovely. Fabulous views out to sea and down to Funchal. Lovely gardens with pool, sauna and beautiful spacious suite with sea view. It is kept spotlessly clean, plenty staff who are exceptionally courteous, friendly and fun.... Funchal is a long walk. There's a courtesy bus but easy with a hire car. Affordable luxury...

The hotel was lovely especially the roof top swimming pool in the delightful gardens! The staff were friendly and pleasant and a ble to supply us with all the info we needed as being new to the island we didn't know much about it. We will go again and stay there when we return!!!

The Ocean Gardens hotel is a beautiful hotel in Funchal. All rooms overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the views are stunning. The cleanliness of the rooms and hotel in general cannot be faulted. The swimming pool and surrounding areas are also very well kept. Just one complaint (and it's a personal one really): the rooms do not have tea and...

We only spent one night in this hotel (after our flight has been cancelled). The rooms are clean and the stuff are very friendly. It is not close to the sea but in the center of the island where it is easy to drive to different areas of the island.

Beautiful clean hotel, very nice staff and incredible views. Waiters are very entertaining " Marco " in particular and Carlos. Breakfast was OK, found myself wishing for the bacon days as it's only served every other day, scrambled egg was very good, nice choice of bread but I am sorry to say they need to up the choice at breakfast....

There's a reason, actually many, why this place has a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and every one justified. Location: Away from the main centre with probably the best view over Funchal and the bay of any hotel. Getting to the centre is no problem as the hotel runs a private courtesy bus to and from Funchal centre and there...
