I didn’t like that was no air conditioner and that was unacceptable, dinnind area everybody was swetting and on the walking area, and I had to change room upon arrival because I was assuming every room had air conditioner but I paid xtra for that. Also entertainment was poor beeing the the hotel is so far from the city they should have better atractions

All suites were true oceanfront and comfortable. Service was excellent and the staff friendly and conversant in many languages. Food was excellent and plentiful. Complimentary brookfieldox lunches were even provided upon notice for day trips. Entertainment was varied and lively. Special thanks to Mariana and Helen in guest relations. Also bartenders Hugo and Ivan,and server Hernani.

Very nice ocean view property very friendly staff however because of size of the property they could use a larger restaurant or a second one . besides that beautiful property and location very close to Funchal Downtown and the beautiful Marine.

Decent food—repetitious menu, but good—great staff—hotel shows its age—hard to find location without GPS until you have been there—picturesque setting but rocky beach hard to walk—good value for the money

10/10 Exceptional

Location is great. Staff friendly and sorted out our requests very quickly. The only thing we didn’t like in our room was lack of air con. Food is ok but nothing special. View from the balcony amazing Our flight was in the evening and we used the option with late check out. Massive plus for this hotel. We also liked the fact that hotel was asking the guests to refill the bottle with water in the canteen instead of giving a new plastic bottle every day
