The room with a terrace was simply great. Gorgeous unobstructed view of the ocean and gardens! Breakfast and buffet dinner were decent. However, only one a la carte restaurant was opened, and it was not possible to book a table due to a large number of guests. The patrons are mostly elderly people, and there’s no entertainment even on weekend nights. Even though there is a large and comfortable hall with a stage. Also, there are no premium drinks in the bar. The beach advertised is not suitable for swimming - very rocky and extremely small. Hotel’s personnel is very good and welcoming as all Madeira people we’ve met!
