First class hotel. Lovely clean room with wonderful sea views, large bed was very comfortable and every amenity - although not impressed by supplying tea and coffee for one day only! But thanks to Trip Advisor I followed someone's advice and took out my own tea bags.
Loved the Roof Sun Terrace - very peaceful with wonderful views.
Restaurant pretty good for Half Board - different selections very night, some very tasty. Desserts got a little repetitive though.
I thought Thomson Reps helpful - unlike other people, however they will all be changing soon, so good luck and thanks to Charlotte and Jade in their summer locations.
Not quite sure about the Gala Dinner - it felt like a way to get the Waiters an early night. One glass of wine doesn't constitute a Cocktail to me!
But the location - oh dear - I must have walked past a dozen hotels I would rather have stayed in - that hill is really a killer - and when you get back to your room do your stretching exercises. Don't go there if you have health problems. After Dinner unless you were super fit or didn't mind paying Taxi fares you really did feel "confined to quarters".
However we did have a lovely relaxing holiday.
Missed out on booking the trips with Strawberry World because we couldn't make up our minds, so splashed out on a Taxi Trip to the Nun's Valley. Although the Taxi Driver couldn't speak much English, it was an excellent trip and worth the extra expense.
Incidentally the Madeira Government are doing an Excellent job on clearing up after the Floods - so don't let that put you off. Although the Lido is very damaged.
