It is a very good hotel, good location, very good value for money, just one thing concerned me, when I was booking, expedia website says there is buffet breakfast, but in reality you will get 2 baps alittle butter, the same little jam and a little triangle of cheese, 50mi of juice and a cup of coffee. that is it. When I have asked them about breakfast buffet, they have been looking at me with dropped jaws. They have heard about that.
This hotel is in a great location, has good staff, very good facilities and better than expected for the money paid. We arrived before check in opened and they welcome you with a drink and tried to sort out the room, when they couldnt they offered us a larger alternative. Very friendly and close to town. Book it.
"Nice hotel (Vegetarian friendly!) & super location"
We found the hotel to be very nice with excellent facilities, the staff were friendly, welcoming, attentive, knowledgeable and professional, the food was excellent, with a good choice for all tastes and diets including Vegetarian (I'm Vegetarian and really appreciated the good choices). We originally thought that we'd eat 'A La Carte' most evenings, however, we had Buffet each evening as it was so very good. The local wines and beers were very good also! The location of the hotel is stunning, on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic with views down to Jardim Do Mar and Paul Do Mar. Watching the sun set whilst enjoying a drink on the terrace was a real treat. The local town of Prazeres is very quiet, but still has a couple of restaurants and a few shops - The area is ideal for walking holidays. The hotel provide scheduled shuttle bus services to Funchal and a few other places, however, we would highly recommend getting a hire car if you want to explore some of the many beautiful places on Madeira (we organised our car in advance for collection at the airport, but the hotel can arrange a car at good rates). Our room was a "studio" and it had a small kitchen area including coffee machine, toaster and fridge-freezer, which we found to be useful. There is a small grocery store on site at the hotel, which sells some wines, spirits, beers, basic groceries and souvenirs. The photos don't do the place any justice - it is much better! A very good choice for relaxing holiday
I travel a lot , and finding good value means I can travel more. I also like to be in walking distance of the city centre and major attractions. Having access to public transportation is also important . At apartamento da se , I have that all. 8 euros return from the airport. And the stop is five minutes away. Close by you have many of the major attractions. Walk to the beautiful parks, the churches, the gondola ride, the Fortaleza , the market ...easy by foot. Nearby many good restaurants, a tea house , and so much more. The staff is friendly and always ready to provide you with the best information to help you with your visit . I was there a few years ago and was recognized as soon as I walked in. The fact that the rooms have cooking facilities, a microwave and a fridge meant I could stock up and stay in if I wanted to from a quick breakfast to maybe some fruit, cheese and pate in the evening if I was in the mood to stay in . This is a great option. The area is quiet so you get a great rest. If you want a big resort with all the amenities , then look elsewhere. If you are like me, and obviously from many of the other guests I met here , and travel a lot and want a more local experience , this is the place to stay .
This is a minimalist hotel ,tastefully furnished and offers excellent value for money . The hotel is in a good position near bus stop and taxi rank and close to some very nice restaurants . It is on a main road and there is traffic noise directly outside the hotel but we were not disturbed at all whilst in the hotel . We had a room on a high floor which was probably quieter than the lower floors We found the staff very helpful and friendly Breakfast was very good . Pool area is small but during our stay it was little used and we never had a problem finding a sunbed . There are lovely views of the sea from the pool area .Many of the bedrooms (which are a very good size ) have side sea views .
The hotel is spotlessly clean . We would definitely stay there again
