Take no notice of the earlier comments, we really liked staying here. We were told that the ownership has changed since the previous comments were made. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the lady was there 8am to 3pm every day except Sunday. They arranged an extra bed for us. There were two hot plates, with pans, sieves, knives etc provided. The bathroom was not the most recent but it did have a bath not just a shower. The outside areas were planted up with roses.
We stayed in the two lower flats that look out across the road to the Royal Orchid hotel, but also over the sea and along the coast. The kids loved the little swimming pool. Upstairs was a sunbathing terrace and at the top a little roofed sitting area.
Opposite the top entrance is a parade of shops, at which you could get discounts but we always forgot the card. We loved the cafes, and the 'mini-market' opens with the tasty local bread at 8am but can run out quickly. The Spar opened at 9am and was a little expensive but we only ever found one other supermarket near the Funchal bus station. You catch the bus at the stops on the road above the one with the Spar on. To find the place, follow the signposts to the Spar, park in the bays just before the parade with the Spar on, and look for a little wooden gate.
