Been to Madeira before and this hotel was most definitely a huge step up from the one we had previously, even though it was only adding 'one star'. Had higher expectations of what it would be like and they were all met sufficiently.
Firstly, the food was scrumptious, varied and some of the best we have tasted anywhere. I know buffets don't suit everyone but the range and quality of the food was excellent; breakfast and evening meal.
The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in, in any hotel, and a relief as the previous hotel was like sleeping on a board!
The gardens were lovely in themselves and were one of the considerations when we chose the hotel in the first place. Absolutely loved the flying of the hawk in the gardens too.(Though I don't think the pigeons are really that much bothered by its presence!)
Doubt we will be back to Madeira but would certainly return here. Such a comfortable, well furnished, relaxing place, served well by friendly and helpful staff.
One negative point is that we had our free drink but forgot there were strings attached with the 'time share sell' !! We managed to avoid their chat down in the bar but they then phoned us in our room.
