My wife and I picked this hotel from the others nearby as I reckoned from the reviews that it would suit us best, and it was the right choice. It has a charm the others hotels (even the neighbouring and connected Quita da Penha de Mar) lack. I can't give it 5 stars only because I know that those reading the reviews would expect a 5 star resort to have more facilities. Our room was clean, quiet and decently decorated although the carpets were a bit worn. We paid a brief visit to the neighbouring Quinta's 2 big seaside pools with all the typical resort facilities and then used the smaller pool in our sections garden from then on. It was lovely. Breakfast was great: all we could wish for, although the cooked choices were limited, and I was happy with that. The atmosphere in the large public rooms was lovely and the hotel is the closest of all of the hotels in this area to the centre of Funchal, maybe a 10 or 15 minute stroll, and if you want to avoid the hill on the way back, you can walk to the neighbouring Quita and take the lift up before walking across a small bridge into de Franca. I agree with an earlier review about the charge for a safety deposit box being mean. Oh well...Oh, and the staff, including in the dining area where we had breakfast, were very friendly and efficient. This remains my first choice for a resort style hotel in Funchal- no question.
