The location is as perfect and the views from All Over the property are incredible . The staff are very attentive. We travelled with two 4 year olds and there were plenty of play areas for them . The guest were on the older side but we knew that from Other reviews . We wanted somewhere safe and clean for the kids and Madeira is incredible . Strongly suggest getting a taxi and do. Day tour of the island . We had the most amazing driver Joe , if you can find him you will not be disappointed. The food was very good
