It was a short visit. Therefore, i did not get to use all facilities, like, the 'swimming pool'. Staff were very helpful at the cafetaria and reception. They spoke english. I will surely recommend.

The staff was excellent especially Luis!, Thelma and Veronica at the front desk . Water in the room is the only suggestion and perhaps a few more shuttle times during the day if guests request.

Beautiful view, relaxed vibe
We enjoyed staying here very much. The hotel has a gorgeous view over the ocean and Funchal. There is an amazing terrace with garden and pool which was fantastic. The staff was super friendly. The restaurant food options are limited for vegetarians but the salads, fish and pasta were great. Only downside was that there is no gym, toiletry products are limited (shampoo and shower gel in one; no conditioner) and the hotel is located on a little street so you can hear an occasional car or bike driving past. We had their newly renovated rooms which were very comfortable. Super comfortable bed. All over wonderful stay!

Very satisfied with our stay
Very comfortable hotel with beautiful view. The hotel has a rooftop pool and bar with breathtaking scenery. We stayed for 7 days and will return. It was very convenient - you can either take the hotel’s free shuttle bus to Town centre and back, or take any other buses right in front of the hotel. Food was good- hot and continental breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausages and mushroom, ham, salads, cakes, juices variety of choices. Only problem for me was that the coffee was not so good - not hot enough. The restaurant next to the hotel serves local cuisine which was very good and inexpensive. We had dinner several nights there, enjoyed the food and the service. Bed was comfortable, shower was good. Room was very clean and strong WiFi most of the time. Overall it’s an excellent hotel.
