We stayed in the suite at the Mariazinha in August this year. We really wanted to avoid the Lido area, with its massive chain hotels - and as soon as we saw this place online we knew it was where we wanted to stay. It is along the oldest street in Funchal - a tiny cobbled road, and close to all of the main sights. It is also where all of the main restaurants are - although the busy side of the street is the one that runs parallel to the hotel.
The owners and staff were very friendly and we were so impressed with the homely feel and the cleanliness of this little place. Our suite was fab - huge bedroom and bathroom and a lovely sitting room with a tiny balcony. It really was a great place to relax after being out all day.
The only tiny thing we could comment on was that breakfast didn't have a huge amount of choice - one type of cheese and ham, a choice of 2 fruits and some yoghurts. We hadn't expected a massive range for this type of accomodation, but we think they own the bakery next door too - some some of those yummy pastries would have been a delicious final touch.
Don't hesitate to consider this place though - if you are desperate for a pool, gym, high-rise blocks and sunloungers, this isn't for you - but who would on an island that has so much to see.
