We went to Maderia on 4th July and from arriving at the very small airport to visiting the island itself we were not dissapointed!
Ocean Gardens Hotel is one of the the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in nothing seemed to much trouble.
The receptionists are very helpful execpt for one who seemed to take a disliking to my husband and at times was very rude she seemed to double also as a breakfast waitress!
The breakfast was enough to stock up on with a variety of local breads!
We opted for half board which was the right choice for us as it can be a bit of a pain to travel back and forth to the town centre to eat out at night.
We were not aware at the time of booking that this service was not a buffet however we enjoyed being waited on for a change and the food was lovely.
The hotel is very isolated our only refuge at night was the local Boa Vista bar which we visited most evening. Cheap and cheerful booze and very friendly staff!
The hotel has amazing veiws one day we even saw the dolphins in the bay!
We would recomend this hotel!More
