We booked quite late and were really pleased with what we found. The rooms were well equipped and spacious with plenty of towels, toiletries and robes. There are two pools though whilst not large are good and well maintained though the umbrellas around the pool need updating. The pool bar offers a great range of lunchtime snacks of good quality....

This is a lovely hotel, ideal for a relaxing holiday away from crowds. Staff are attentive and personable. Excellent breakfasts but would not recommend the restaurant - there are much better places to eat in Madeira. The garden view rooms with balcony are spacious and well appointed and clean.
