Apartment was big enough for 6 easily,its clean and the kitchen is functional with enough pots, pans and plates to allow you to self cater for your holiday. The view is very nice and the sound of the sea crashing against the beach is very soothing, it helped me sleep very well, in fact the best ever tbh, 6 hours deep sleep was monitored on my sleep monitor, spectacular, twice what I do at home. Its is a little dated so don't expect a brand new crispy clean apartment, it has no air-con.
Its on the 1st floor of a hotel that is joined with the one next door, lots of their guests are on all inclusive deals. You share the pool the guests from their hotel. Its not a problem but just be aware. The pool is a little dated and the brollies are 2 euros each.
The location is a bit out of town. Its a mile walk to the nearest decent restaurant and that involves walking along a wooden path that is not suitable for the infirm, its quite dangerous tbh. I think if you not staying all inclusive a car is a necessity.
Nyara is a great host and is very knowledgeable about the island.
I would stay here again
This is a spacious apartment located in a lovely area right on the sea front where you can relax by listening to the waves lap by day and night, there is a nice pool and lots of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The best bit of all thou is the view which is engaging both in the day, where boats pass by, and in the evening where the cliff lights up like stars in the sky. Madeira offers plenty to see and do and we can highly recommend the Jeep tour with Niara's husband Miguel where you will experience the breath taking scenery Madeira has to offer and hear informative details about the land from Miguel who clearly has a passion for the Island. Niara was very helpful and made various arrangements for us throughout our stay, communicating was very easy and never a problem, she helped our holiday go smoothly.
The apartment is exactly like the pictures, it is clean and spacious and is in a great location. Due to the apartments being part of the Pestana chain the pool is cleaned everyday by pool staff, there is a pool bar that opens at 3 pm and there is always someone on reception. Excellent place to stay.
We loved this apartment. The location is perfect, right next to the ocean in a very quiet location, yet still within a short drive (or bus ride) to Funchal. The apartment is exactly as described and is extremely clean and spacious. For anybody renting a car, there is plenty of free parking. A special word for the owner, Nyara, who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Prompt communication before and during our stay and an extremely charming and friendly person. Highly recommended.
We had a blissful week staying in a spacious and comfortable apartment overlooking the sea. The sound of the ocean was quite hypnotic. We swam in the pool and had lovely walks to the nearby fishing village and also caught the bus most days into Funchal. The bus stop is just a 10 min walk away and there are frequent buses. Funchal is a beautiful town with lovely gardens and we visited the tropical gardens too on the chair lift . We also had a jeep ride and levada walks. (for which you need good shoes and extra layers as it is high in the mountains)
Madeira is so beautiful! Trees and flowers from every corner of the world seemingly all in bloom at the same time.
Nyara was extremely helpful and friendly and recommended some lovely restaurants.( We loved the local dishes such as scabbard fish with banana!)
We enjoyed a wonderful violin recital at the English Church in Funchal.
So much to see and do!
We definitely will come back!
Amazing location, Nyara, the owner of the apartment, a very pleasant and helpful lady. One day Jeep tour along with Nyara's husband is a must !
Waiting to visit again !
Following a lovely warm welcome from Nyara the accommodation was more than expected although should have trusted previous reviews. Quiet location but either walking, buses or a hire car can easily cover the island. With the help of Nyara found plenty of places to eat and supermarkets to make use of the facilities within the apartment. Would definately like to return.
