“great budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2008

Just had a 2 week stay at this rather dated but value for money hotel, located some distance from Funchal centre.
The room was large, in fact a suite, with small separate bedroom, had a great view of the sea, nothing much else, maybe the odd ship or boat. The hotel had a good sized pool, clean and reasonably well maintained. Pool towels were provided. The room was clean, kitchenette was adequate, don't expect to cook an elaborate meal in it, but anyway your on holiday........the bathroom had all the essentials, including a bidet but no small bottles of complementary toiletries, so either bring you own or pop across the road to the super sized shopping centre, open all hours.
Breakfast is also basic but for the 50 euro a night B&B you can't really expect much else, if you get tired of the boiled eggs, plastic ham and cheese give yourself a treat and pop into the cafe/bakery across the road and grab a great cup of coffee and some lovely pastries instead!!
Don't expect too much from this hotel, even after 10days they were still asking for our room number at breakfast! Use as a base, not really a place to lounge about in.The communal rooms are limited and a little shabby. The free bus to town, bus stop and taxi rank just outside, are a bonus, but make the effort to walk into town, there is a lovely walk along the coast with plenty of watering places to stop at.
The hotel restaurant is actually okay, frequented by the locals, try the covers, a selection of tapas type dishes, followed by duck in rice..... Best fish we had was at the little place on the way to the tunnel going along the coastal path, away from Funchal, lots of steps down too and up from it. Simple fish dishes,done well at a fair price.

If you want a real experience, thats just fabulous, book a table on the balcony at Villa Cipriani, a Reid's restaurant on Estrada Monumental, be prepared to spend some serious money but it was by far the best meal we had out.

You get what you pay for here, a good sized room, and if you aren't looking over the car park you must have a sea view of some sort, we had a great view.

Madeira is a lovely island, with balmy weather, good for walking, lots of lovely gardens, if you don't want to drive on the twisty roads hire a taxi for the day and explore, there are several set routes around the island, haggle and get a good price. Enjoy!

  • Liked — lovelysea views, lots of space in the room.
  • Disliked — A little shabby, in need of some serious up grading.
  • Stayed May 2008, travelled as a couple
