I stayed in this lovely hotel with my parents for two weeks in September 2013. The great thing about it is that all rooms have a sea view, you can enjoy sunrises and sunsets, and sounds of waves as long as you like. There is a very attractive path leading from the hotel to the pool area and the beach, you feel like walking in a botanical garden. Spacious rooms and spacious balconies, very clean everywhere. The staff was always friendly and willing to help.
I liked the location because it was away from the noisy downtown streets and, on the other hand, appox.10 -15 minutes ride from the center of Funchal on the city bus (or you can book the free hotel bus in advance).
The only little drawback was that at first they put us in a room on the floor just under the hotel music bar, and it's not so great for sensitive sleepers :-) But we changed the room the next day, and everything was fine after that. If we go to Madeira again, we will gladly stay at the Orca Praja.
