I was very pleased with the hotel, the staff, everyone was great considering we travel with a small baby. However, keep in mind that this hotel is not new, so it cannot be compared to other 4* newer hotels in Funchal.
However, for the price, this is an excellent choice!

This was our first trip to Madeira and was very pleased with with the hotel. We found the room very clean, a daily maid service with the towels changed daily. The buffet breakfast was outstanding and the staff very pleasant and helpfull.
Dont bother with the yellow bus tour, they advertise a 20 minute service it was more like 45 minutes, while waiting for their buses we noticed the red buses were much more frequent.

We thought this hotel was in a good location and our room was clean and had a lovely view. Room 1026
However I would say if your room is at the lower front of the building it could be very noisy with traffic passing on a busy road.
The breakfast was good although the staff (6) seemed more interested in talking than clearing the tables and replenishing the food island.
Indoor pool area and water not very warm.
Away from the hotel three things to be aware of.
1 Avoid the usual 'rip offs' ' when hiring a car at the airport - I used HERTZ -- they need masks like bandits usually wear!
2 Be prepared to pay for overpriced drinks when eating out.
3 Don't bother with The Yellow Bus Tour they advertise a 20 minute service but take out most of the service in the afternoon we waited 50minutes, commentary is rubbish. Better idea - use the free bus from the hotel and get a day ticket on the local buses from Funchal -- cheaper and more frequent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the West side have good views.

This was our first trip to Madeira and we were very impressed by the Hotel. The apartment had two large rooms with a connecting kitchen and two bathrooms. There was also a double balcony. We were at the front of the hotel next to the main road so there was some noise from the traffic but otherwise it was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good sized indoor pool and an outdoor pool as well. Cleanliness was excellent. There was a good bus service from outside the hotel, so a car was not needed. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed for a week over Christmas 2012 in a spacious studio apartment on the third floor.
Can't fault the service and cleanliness of the hotel. Sitting on our balcony, the noise bothered us (it is on a busy road!), but at night it was much quieter.

There is beautiful garden with pool (unheated) and another good-sized heated pool inside.

We did not take any meals in the hotel, so can't comment. But there are plenty of restaurants in the
area. Funchal centre is about half and hour's walk away. The Christmas decorations, beautiful lights
and Christmas market are worth a visit by themselves, and it was warm enough to stroll around at
night.
Our second stay on Madeira, and we'll be back!
