This is a four star plus hotel with beautiful views out to the Atlantic. Ideal spot for those wnting a quiet time in a very relaxing spot. Those that want more of the nightlife can take the 20 minute shuttle bus in to Funchal which appeared to provide the facilities for this (not my cup of tea).
The few complaints I noted on previous reviews must have come from very critical guests as I found everything to be spot on. Large room with balcont and superb sea view, excellent food, good service and very helpful reception staff. Ample sun beds in the pool area with none 'booked' in advance.
I have already recommended this hotel to family and friends and hope ti visit again myself in the future.
