This was our hotel as part of a package holiday with Monarch (Cosmos). This hotel is on the main route to Funchal from the Lido area. As luck would have it the road was closed for alterations so it was very quiet.
We had a room on the 6th floor with a side sea view overlooking waste land. This hotel looks very much like a standard business hotel. The rooms have that standard layout and furniture including mirror and pictures with two singles put together to make a double but with two single sheets fitted. It would have been nice to have some tea making facilities. The bathroom was very clean and the room had maid service every day. The breakfast was as mentioned by others a buffet with cold meats, cheese and rolls, cereals, cooked breakfast of, bacon, egg, tomatoes, mushrooms and beans. Fresh fruit, yoghurts, croissants and bread as well as home made cake. Depending upon the time it could get busy with things running out, although they were quickly replaced, so make it a bit earlier. Plenty of tea, coffee and juices.
There were two pools, an indoor one with a sliding roof and an outdoor on which was smaller but deeper. No problems with the sun beds though.
There was entertainment in the bar every evening if you like that kind of thing with a happy hour drinks time and special offer cocktails.
The are plenty of nearby restaurants with the local food restaurants all having similar tourist menus for between 12 and 14 euros (although you may have to ask as they will give you the a la carte).
All in all a pleasant experience and we would happily go there again.
