Wanted hotel with shower screen

This, hopefully, will be our third time to Madeira having been to Savoy Gardens, very nice but didn't like the hill climb, Pestanta Ocean view, loved the hotel but not to keen on the breakfast. My husband needs a shower either over the bath or walk-in but not with a shower curtain, limited mobility in tight spaces (Parkinsons) Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks

Carol -We stay in a Junior Suite at the Porto Mare Hotel which has two bathrooms , one of which has a walk in shower cabin + a bath with over head shower . The second bathroom ( off the living area ) has a shower over the bath . However ,they also advertise rooms adapted for physical disabilities which may be worth looking into .

The Junior Suite is very spacious .

Yes The Cliff Bay besides having walk in showers has rooms for people with physical handicaps.In a review posted some time ago a reviewer said on a recent trip the facilities for handicapped people had improved greatly since the last refurbishment of the hotel.

I too would recommend Cliff Bay. Rooms are very spacious and en suite bathrooms have walk in showers. Whilst there is an up hill climb to the road when you exit the hotel, there is a fairly regular courtesy bus. In addition to this there are usually taxis available at hotel entrance.

The Porto Santa Maria Hotel have a Garden View Room on their Ground Floor that has been fully adapted for the less mobile visitor. The bathroom, from memory had a separate walk in shower, fully adapted for the less mobile guest, if necessary you were also able to sit when showering etc., Also a separate standard Bath with overhead shower. There were also hand rails for extra support.

The room is perfectly situated for flat easy access to the Garden, Sun Bathing Area, Dining Room, Pool Side and Outdoor Snack Bar etc.,

We were booked into this room a few years ago for one night as the hotel was overbooked on our arrival. I was most impressed with the set up.

Thank you for your replies. Have booked Melia Madeira Mare Resort & Spa. The travellers photos show a glass screen. Do hope I've chosen wisely.
