We booked this place through lowcost holidays and arrived on 6th Feb 2012.
The place looked reasonable from the outside,all that was there to meet us was the cleaner ,who could speak little english and showed us to the studio room,she was surprised as there were three of us ,but as I explained this is what had been booked and stated 3 people on the booking form,she went off t find a camp bed,which was totally unsatisfactory.
Meanwhile we inspected the place and it was filthy the setee which was supposed to double as a sofa bed had all the springs broken and was ripped and all the stuffing was coming out of the sidealso the chair was like this,the carpet looked filthy and smelt dreadful,like it had been urinated on,the walls and paintwork were all very dirty,we checked the bathroom and there was rust around the plughole
after all this we checked the bedroom and took the pillowcases off the pillows only to find the pillows were brown with sweat stain and obviously had been covered up with clean pillow cases,we then decided that this was not the place for us to stay and sat down to discuss what to do next at that point we noticed flees all over the accomodation and one of my party got bit three times in the short time we were there.we contacted lowcostholidays and told them that we wanted to change our accomodation after some harsh words we were offered an upgrade for £164 to the Madiera Bright Star in Funchal which was very good,but now I find out from reading other reviews this is owned by the same Mr Ricardo Santo Silva who owns the Canico Bay Club,it appears this is a scam and I am determinded that Ricardo Silva is exposed as a con man and am passing the information the photographs and the film I took of canico bay club to the BBC Holiday nightmare programme who have agreed to expose this crook.
This place is not worthy of1* let alone 4*
