We had a lovely holiday for February Half term. We stayed here for 4 nights and we loved it here from the room, to the staff to the breakfast.
The hotel was very clean, can not fault the cleanliness at all, even the changing room and the pools were perfect.
We also love the fact that the hotel offered free transfer bus to Funchal town during the day but do book early at reception as it’s very popular. And every evening they have entertainment, my little boy loved it. Would definitely stay here again.

A lot of positive points for this hotel. Public area stylishly designed and furnished although personally think bar area is over lit at night. Staff very pleasant. Pools are very high standard. Good location for restaraunts locally.
Downsides for us were rooms so what somewhat spartan and water pressure for shower variable.
Layout of dining room for breakfast very institutionalised with rows of tables, reminded us of school canteen. Hot food not brilliant and omelettes very greasy. Strangely do not provide coffee or milk in the room.
Does represent good value for money but just needs tweaking in the dining area and turn down the lights.
Do wish all the staff well during this crisis and hope you can re-open soon
