Visited in May 2014 and enjoyed our stay immensely. Vila Vicencia is well located in the tourist area just west of Funchal centre. It is well run by really helpful friendly staff, daily room servicing is to a high standard and our room was immaculate with plenty of towels and good quality bedding. The spacious bathroom was well equipped and had a hairdryer.
Breakfast consisted of a choice of hot food, usually bacon or sausage, eggs were either boiled, scrambled or fried. There were plenty of yoghurt's, cold meats and cheeses available and a nice selection of bread. Yes, the cake was pretty good too!
It was pleasant to come back after a busy day and unlock the gate leading to the immaculate gardens surrounding the rooms which are located in three separate buildings within the grounds.
The was plenty of good quality garden furniture situated near the pool area and it was nice to be able to take a dip in the pool to cool down on the many warm days of our two week holiday.
We hired a car from Express Holiday Packages at the nearby Eden Mar Shopping complex, just down the hill from where the open top tour buses stand.
We tried both the red bus and the yellow open top bus tours and preferred the red buses.
Our favourite restaurant was O Dragoeiro, immediately next door to Vila Vicencia where they served lovely food and made us very welcome. We also enjoyed the nearby Nagoya Japanese restaurant where for 15.90 euros you could just keep ordering from the extensive menu, which included sushi. The Boutique Pastelaria Padaria is a small bakery and coffee shop nearby that makes nice sandwiches and has a massive selection of cakes on offer.
We hope to re-visit the island and when we do we will have no hesitation in returning to the calm and tranquillity of Vila Vicencia.
