I was in this hotel as 2 people (twin bed) for 6 nights on a superior room on 8th floor (reception is 2th floor, swimming pool 1st floor, spa and park in 0). The view was amazing to Funchal Harbor.

I booked early check in and late check out (i booked one month before) but when i arrived i was informed due to full booking would not be possible. However, the hotel offered us a free lunch in pool restaurant and a dinner in normal restaurant (buffet dinner). I was impressed with this.

Notice that i also rented a car so i can not review how far it is from places....since i always took car to fully walk through whole island.

Also, i am surprised that people find LAN cable a surprise (it is well stated on their website).

For me the point to improve for a 4 star hotel, is quality of breakfast (specially the fruit...sometimes it comes directly from fridge...what is too cold) and quality of juices.

On the superior room, i liked the free slippers and bathrobs and welcome drinks (water, orange juice, coke).

Also the elevator time i agree but i noticed something funny. There are 3 elevators but only 2 are used for 80% of people.

I would recommend to hotel to turn the 3rd elevator ONLY for superior rooms and suites (top 5 floors). Using this elevator for up and down maximum wait was 3 min. The other 2 could be 10 minutes as stated in other reviews.

I would like also to make a personal note:
Some people complain the hotel should be not 4*.
I paid 70 euros/night for a room with Funchal Bay view , free slippers and bathrobles, and free SPA entry.

In Lisbon, an IBIS hotel is 65 euros/day. So i am absolutely amazed with this hotel specially how to maintain 2 pools, sauna, jacuzzi and parking.

Room Tip: Choose superior room due to view and free welcome drinks and free slippers and bathrobe.

We came to Madeira on a study visit with a group of public and private officials. I believe the hotel was a great choice for this. As most of Funchal, the hotel is on a slope so be prepared for a slight climb coming back to the hotel from Downtown. Rooms were very nice with a very nice view of Funchal and the sea. I would agree that there is an elevator issue, and not having wireless in the rooms was a bit inconvenient. Other than that, all was very good.

We chose this hotel for its central location and were disappointed to discover that it is a good 15 min walk to the town centre. It is a very unpleasant walk as you have to keep crossing over and back to avoid walking on the road – there are pedestrian crossings though. Also you need to know to exit by the back of the hotel otherwise you really take your life in your hands. The hotel itself is spacious quiet and clean with friendly helpful staff. There are tea making facilities in the rooms but bring your own teabags if you plan to have more than 2 cups. The pool area is very nice. Should you celebrate your birthday while there the occasion will be well marked! However, I think it is over rated at 4 stars – the decor in the reception area leaves a lot to be desired, the lifts are very small given that there are 11 floors and the air conditioning is not great. Breakfast is average with an over use of machines and having to cut your own bread is a bit much.

We stayed at the four views after finding the holiday through travel zoo. We were very pleasantly surprised. We had a fantastic time in funchal made even better by the hotel staff. The waiter in the pool terrace was excellent, the reception staff very helpful as were the evening bar staff. Nothing too much trouble. Brilliant bar be que on the saturday which enticed us into the restaurant again on sunday! The only downside was the walk back up to the hotel from the town. We would def reccommend this hotel. Well done four views baia!

We booked into this hotel through a travel agent and were really pleased when we arrived. We booked a self-catering studio but due to wildfires on the island the previous occupants had to stay for an extra night. The hotel put us in another room for the evening but provided a free dinner and breakfast. Once we got the studio we were really impressed. It was a really good size with everything you could want in facilities. The balcony was a good size compared to the one we had in the normal hotel room.

The pool was a pleasant area and the pool bar was reasonably priced for drinks and food. The bar had live entertainment every night and the whole hotel has a great view over Funchal.

The spa regularly ran offers and I enjoyed the massage which I went for.

Overall really pleased and I'd go back. Its about a 10 minute walk into central Funchal but be prepared for the return walk as it is all uphill!

Room Tip: The studios have better size balconies
