I know I am going to upset regulars who stay at this hotel but I really am bemused with all the good write ups. Firstly we only stayed the one night so this is a very limited review based mainly on our suite. It was large but extemley dated and in need of a serious refurb, from painting to furnishing the very sparse rooms. The bath was disgusting the worst I have ever seen from any star hotel. Thick black mold surrounded it there was no
way I was going to sit in it and if I had seen it on check in I would have asked for another room. $200 euros is a lot to pay for such poor facilitys. ripped chair in the bedroom and writing desk was the extent of furnishing in a very large room, no extra touches.
Cant comment on the restaurant as ate out, had a drink in the very small bar area, staff were pleasant enough and drinks reasonably priced, pianist needed a few lessons on how to play the piano though. Pool area nice but very small and could be a problem in the height of summer as had about a dozen beds for 43 rooms. I would rate this no more than a 3 star hotel, maybe I was unlucky with the suite given but in anycase they should not be letting out a room in such disrepair and charging such a high price for the pleasure. Love madeira but would not stay at this hotel again or recommend it to friends.
