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

Great Hotel at a great price

Posted 04-Jan-2017
Pros: Location and views. The staff were very helpful.
Location: Nearby bars and restaurants. Pleasant walk into Camara de Lobos along the lido and 20-30 minutes into the centre of Funchal.
The best 3* hotel I've stayed at. Friendly and professional staff and in a great location.

Hotel pratique pour un court séjour . Bien situé.

Le personnel a accepté de nous changer de chambre car la première ( proche de la réception) était bruillante. Le parking est appréciable.

Centralt beliggende, men meget op ad bakken.

Posted 11-Oct-2016
Pros: Udsigten - og prisen.
Cons: Aircon Mere udstyr i køkkenet - udskiftn./rep af køleskab Billigt: Anskaf nogle måtter og et par store bolde til fitness. Rep. af cykel
Location: Fin beliggenhed i et hyggeligt område, men man skal være mobil, da der er store højdeforskelle. Ellers relativt tæt på strandpromenaden med Lido.
Hovedindtrykket må være: "Man får, hvad man betaler for". Køkkenet i "lejligheden" var yderst sparsomt udstyret - der var ex, ingen elkedel. Værelset fremstod slidt, men det fungerede. Ingen services som sæbe, badegel etc. Vi fik ikke skiftet sengetøj på de 9 dage, opholdet varede - og kun håndklæder, når vi decideret anmodede om det. Ingen aircondition! Slidt, langsom elevator. WiFi fungerede sparsomt. Dårligt udstyret fitness-rum. Dejlig udsigt fra altanen på 11. etage - OK poolområde, men ingen muligheder for at låne/leje poolhåndklæder. Senge OK.

Very good value and good location

Posted 02-Oct-2016
Yes, this hotel needs a facelift, but it is excellent value for money. We only stayed for one night, but for that we got a room, buffet hot breakfast, pool and a kitchenette in the room. Lots of good eating places close by. Try the Dragon Tree or Osteria, both on opposite side of road.

A 70's Flasback.

Posted 11-Sep-2016 on Hotels
The rooms were clean. Breakfasts were great! The staff at the breakfasts were wonderful! Handy fridge to keep your water bottles, fruit and food cool. Washrooms good size and great water pressure. Great little souvenir and snack shop on the lower floor. Nice pool area to relax. Lots of restaurants within minutes of walking. Love Antonio's Restaurant! Regarding the design...Flasback to the 70's! Felt like we were walking backing into the 70's though. Could use a big revamp. With an update it would improve the overall look. No air conditioning.... We were aware of that. It was HOT. There were no fans. The view was beautiful! No shuttle to downtown as advertised. You will have to take a taxi....to Funchal approx. 8 Euros. If you are not picky about overall appearance then this place is great for you. The photos on the site must have been taken many years ago,as its age is showing.

The hotel is very 70's and not very modern but clean and staff friendly. The bathroom and kitchen needs attention and Had a few minor issues like shower head broken.

En bord de mer

Posted 22-Aug-2016
L'hôtel est très bien situé, on est bien desservi que ce soit pour la restauration, pour les transports. Les activités ne manquent pas. Le personnel de l hôtel est très accueillant, le seul hic est que l hôtel baigne dans son jus. Il manque de rafraîchissement.... L'entretien de la piscine laisse à désirer, les chambres et la salle de bain auraient grandement besoin d être mise au goût du jour. Mais pour le reste rien à dire, je conseille fortement ce séjour à l île de Madeira
