Nice hotel/apartment in Funchal

Posted 25-Jul-2017
Pros: See above
Cons: Air conditioning in the rooms please... too hot
Location: See above
Easy to get to via airport bus. The hotel is a short walk from the bus stop but is quite a hill climb... but then Funchal is all about hills. Nice reception and staff. We stayed on the 6th floor so lift or stairs. Rooms look like the photos on the web, spacious with small kitchenette and balcony. We paid for part sea view which I'm glad we did. Although we had a small building site to the left we could see the hills of Funchal and the sea. Some of the balconies overlooked the swimming pool or the other hotel so we were glad for the view. Bathroom was ok but needed a new sealant around the bath and shower screen. It didn't bother us as it was functional. We had bed and breakfast and the breakfast was ok, bit limited on choice but again was ok. There were 2 outdoor pools and 1 indoor pool which were clean and lovely to sit round. There was a pool bar and drinks were very cheap so was good value. Staff were lovely and helpful and there were some entertainment on every night. The hotel was near the outdoor Lido on the promenade a short walk away and was really lovely. There are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby but not rowdy or noisy. The only problem with noise was from the road nearby but traffic was diverted down the road due to road works. There was a local supermarket so we could get food in for lunch or dinner as there was a fridge and small cooker/microwave. I would happily stay there again but the only big problem was no Air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Great place to stay

Posted 07-Jul-2017
Pros: Location and comfort.
Cons: An electric kettle in the room would be an advantage but not essential.
Location: Good location and a leisurely walk into town. Near by to lido, promenade walk and bars and restaurants.
Close to bars and restaurants. Breakfast had a large variety of hot and cold choices. Rooms comfortable and clean. Stayed here 3 times now. Great value.

Great value for money. Rooms and d├ęcor a little dated but clean and comfortable. Excellent outdoor and indoor pool facilities, wide choice for breakfast. Lots of restaurants and bars close by, about 35 mins walk to old town.

Great cheep break

Posted 01-Jun-2017
This hotel is a little dated but the rooms are quite OK for the price.We stayed on the car park side and it was a little noisey at times. Glad we stayed at this hotel and not the sister hotels as it was nearest to the road and you didn't have to walk up the hill. Self catering facilities are basic but we didn't go to cook. Would stay here again.

Good budget hotel

Posted 27-May-2017
We got a good deal so were not expecting much. Good location. Hotel was clean and reception staff were friendly. Room had everything you need if basic. Towels were clean and changed daily but rather thin. We paid small supplement for breakfast which was plentiful but eggs and bacon were not good quality. Overall I would go again but only at the right price.

Hard to find from instructions given

Posted 24-Apr-2017
Pros: Pleasant staff
Cons: I would prefer that Expedia stopped booking this hotel for users.
Location: If you had a car-hire there are many things to do and view as the scenery is spectacular but on foot you are somewhat limited.
Initial thoughts on arrival were quite pleasing because we found the place!! and the staff were pleasant.On later inspection of the room we found that the shower was not workable due to the push-button switch being locked rock solid.The sink in the bathroom would not let the water out and the fan extractor did not work.The pedal bin was broken and the lid kept falling off.Breakfast was rather monotonously plain with no change to the menu and finding porridge next to the beans was a bit confusing because many people thought that it was badly cooked scrambled egg!!

Close to all ameneties,good location

Posted 21-Feb-2017
Pros: See above
Cons: Perhaps needs a bit of a makeover, but I like the way it is
Location: See top comments
Have been to this hotel 3 times now, it is not 5* but it's a very good base with lots of ameneties nice little kitchenette in the rooms and some great views from the upper floors the hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the food particularly at breakfast is very good with lots of choice to suit every dietary need. The staff are all pleasant and very helpful, Internet is available in the public areas or you can pay and have Internet connection in your room if you wish, which I did . It's a comfortable walk into the centre taking about 20 minutes ,and a very good bus service back ,bus number 4 . I love this hotel and will be returning if I'm able
