The hotel is v central ... close to the old, albeit not totally interesting old town. I preferred it here compared to the Benidormesque hotel area ... each to their own. Funchal is big ... no easy walks from your hotel door ... from Hotel Madeira ... just the repetitive harbour walk. Trips ok ... the real beauty lies in the scenery ... stunning in parts.However, many of the organised trips stop at complete 'nothings' eg a 'trout farm'.Half an hour stops to look around 'tat' tourist trinket shops became galling. We did west and eat tours with 'Flora'in a minibus ... okay but 5000 uphill gear changes does grind after a while. Best to do organused trips as most villages have enough to keep you for half an hour only. Catamaran trip okay ... long and hot ... saw dolphins and pilot whales.Ni commentary whatsoever ... poor ... chiise the BBC promoted catamaran.
Hotel Madeira ... had a suite ... 2 balconies ... 2 rooms ...aircon ... fridge ... free safe ... good, peacefu,l tiny pool on roof. Breakfasts ...unbelievably poor ... no fresh fruit ...why on earth not? ... it.s Madeira! Watch out for Mosquitoes ... check your room thoroughly before bed or reap the consequences ... you have been warned.
Finally ... I would just like to mention the lovely, older gentleman on reception... he was always so helpful and pleasant ...what a super manner ... calm and thoughtful etc.
Enjoy your stay ...
