“Nice modern hotel”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

- Within walking distance from Funchal center
- New modern facilities
- Nice pool area and optional spa
- wifi provided in lobby and pool area, elsewhere not available.
- Great if you rent a car, fast access to highway and parking facilities.
- This is not a 5 star hotel, but easily better than most 4 star hotels.
- Worth the money.

Spent one week at the Four Views Baia hotel in Funchal, Madeira (third visit to Madeira). Had a room at 9th floor with a fantastic view over Funchal. Also in other respects this hotel was very good with friendly and helpful staff, a very good breakfast restaurant and a pleasant pool area with a snack bar. Free internet all over, with cable connection in the room and Wi-Fi in the lobby. The Four Views Baia is highly recommended.

Having not long since returned from a week in Madeira, I could recommend this hotel to anyone who can cope walking up and down hills. The hotel is very clean everywhere. The standard twin room (612) is very well proportioned and is on the corner of the building at the rear with excellent views up the valley. The balcony which faces to the rear of the property had a large tree in front which gave some shade until about 4pm then it was just right to sit out. If you opened the curtains to the sitting area you could then sit on the balcony and look out up the valley.

We stayed on half board and the food was very good. There was enough choice (different every day) to be able to satisfy even the most fussy of eaters. (My husband being no exception, he managed to eat 4 courses every day at dinner.) Only complaint would be the bacon in the mornings, this was rather fatty, but then again where outside of England isn't it.

If you don't use the courtesy bus (which you have to book the day before) to get into the town, then I would suggest that you walk towards the Casino and up and down the hill through Santa Catarina Park, lovely area and much easier to walk.

The pool area is very clean, there are however in my opinion to many beds and not enough brollies. Kids pool is in the sun all day long with no shade at all. This is more a couples hotel than a family one.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room or a corner room at the rear looking up the valley

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean, modern and just what we needed for our 5 day break. All the staff were very friendly and polite. they genuinely were happy to help and we felt like their guests. The views from all angles of the hotel were stunning. It is a bit of a walk to the old town and traditional restaurants but we knew this before we came to the island. It would also be nice to have the option of a double bed too. The only thing I would say that let's the hotel down is the hot breakfast options are not very appealing. Gave us both upset tummys. We were fine when we stuck to cereals and pastries though. This and the wifi is not always available and we never had wifi in the room as advertised.

The rooms we had were on the 9th floor and very clean. Hotel is based in the residential area of Funchal and about 15 min walk to either the new or old area. Breakfast is abit hit and miss,the cold buffet is lovely with fruit and fresh bread but the hot food is not brilliant.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view room

Stayed here on a business trip to Madeira and was quite impressed with the stunning views the hotel offers from the great spot where it is located (though a bit far from the centre). Indeed the large windows of the bar/restaurant on the 2nd floor can give a nice start of the day while having breakfast.
However, I was quite unlucky with the internet access, that is free with wifi on public areas and also free but with cable in the rooms. I had to work while in the room so requested the cable at the reception desk, but it didn't work. Maybe there was some problem, asked them to see and they changed the cable for another one and still that didn't work! The (spacious) room had 2 places to connect and also the telephone cable but neither worked. The result was that I really had to work while there so had to remain in the lobby until around 2 am using the wifi, and this could have been avoided...
The hotel could also improve the offer of fresh fruit at breakfast, being a 4-star located on such a gifted island for that matter.

Reception with its 'red lights' at night is a bit dated and I was expecting 'ladies of night' to appear ! Lift / Elevators take a long to arrive - during breakfast its easier to walk down the stairs - unless you are on the 10th floor! Rooms are nice - beds are hard (Scandinavians love hard beds!). Breakfast is a fight and quality of some items not so good. Hot eggs dishes can take 20 minutes to cook - Breakfast chefs were too slow. My balcony was so small & less than 1 m2 the door would not open fully & impossible for 2 persons to sit down. Steep walk to city center not for the weak kneed! . After asking daily for 4 days to fix air con - nothing was done! Nice chamber maid - very friendly (no English) & did a good job looking after room. Exception value if you are on a package holiday. Cat 5 Internet never worked but Reception obtained a USB WiFi unit for last 5 days of stay.

Room Tip: Get a room with a harbor view - great view of the cruise ships
