Stayed here for a 2 night short break in Madeira with 2 friends.
The hotel is situated approximately 7 km from Funchal town at the end of a strip of hotels so is not ideally located if you plan to spend a lot of time in Funchal (approx 12 euros each way in a taxi). It does have a courtesy bus (weekdays only), a public bus nearby, and also has free parking if you have hired a car.
The room was clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated, and the views from the balcony were stunning!
The breakfast included hot breakfast items, continental breakfast items, fruit and yoghurt, and there was even champagne in the buffet.
We did not use the pool but it appeared well maintained. The beach appeared muddy from the balcony, but when we got closer it consisted of black sand (not mud) and the water seemed very clean.
We paid about £80 for a triple room for 2 nights, which was excellent value, although I suspect we managed to get it on a special deal... I would however be willing to pay more for this hotel.
Distance from town centre
Beach access is not very easy (steps and steep ramp) which may be a consideration if you have any form of disability
