we stayed at dom pedro 2 adults one 3 year old this is our second time ,for the price you can`t get a better hotel we had just room only because there are lovely eating places outside the hotel or in the centre we also hired a car which for us was a must as we went round the island. the hotel is not 5 star so if youe fancy a 5 star but think you can get the same service your mistaken. but for a place to stay for room only you cant beat it.the swimming pools are not heated but the time we went the weather was hot so nice and refreasing for us .they have 3 pools in total and tennis courts plus free internet at reception only. once again i stress for the price it`s great but do remember it is a 3 star.
Great hotel for couples. Room was exactly what we wanted and the spa facilities were great, including free use of hot tub, sauna and indoor and outdoor pools! Hotel staff were happy to help when asked and the hotel was an easy distance from Funchal centre, either by bus for €1.90 or a pleasant 20 minute walk. Balcony view of the sea was incredible as was the view of Funchal from the rooftop. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
We stayed at this hotel for 1 night only as we were due to board a cruise ship the next day. The apartment was clean and functional. We enjoyed having the balcony which was an extra bonus. Its good value for the price you are paying. We enjoyed a lovely meal and breakfast at the restaraunt which is adjoining this hotel. Our cruise ship let us down and I cannot speak too highly of the staff who helped us enormously to sort our flights back, Booked us into their other hotel which is in the North of the island and helped us hire car.
"Only noise was the roar of the sea - great for us!"
We arrived well before official check in time, but this was not a problem we were shown straight to our room by a very welcoming friendly member of staff, to find we had been upgraded from a sea view studio room to the top floor apartment with separate living room, bedroom bathroom and toilet with a huge balcony overlooking the sea with room for sun lounger, table and chairs. Wow!
'The Cais', the Rocamar and the Royal Orchid are now under the same ownership so the facilities of all hotels were open to us, pools spa, gym etc. I had considered all the hotels as options when I booked 'The Tropical' (now 'Cais de Olivera') Having explored all, It was the quieter of the 3, less 'hotelly' no music in the smaller pool area as opposed to that coming from the Royal Orchid gym, I was pleased with my choice it suited us best. They have begun refurbishment but we were undisturbed by noise - it will be closing in Feb 2014 to complete and reopening in March with a new updated look, so comments I saw written in reviews about the hotel being 'tired' will no longer apply. Had excellent meal at the Lee Hamilton Restaurant (onsite) on my birthday very attentive friendly staff.
This is the second time I stay at this hotel, staff were so friendly and very helpful.I have a small child, so I did not wanted to stay to high up so they accomodated to an even better and child friendly room, very confortable and clean on second floor where we all felt so welcoming. I definately recomend this hotel, very near to town, you can walk through promenade only takes 15 minutes, where you can enjoy and mesmerize the beautiful nature of Madeira: flowers, exotic trees, the views of the mountains and the sea
