Not much to be said really... our decision to extend our time-share was a no-brainer. This place is quite simply perfect. With thirteen wonderful holidays already behind us, we look forward to ten more years of holidays in paradise! If there is a company more...More
We love this hotel and after two consecutive years we decided to buy a one bedroom apartment in the Residence on a timeshare basis. The room is extremely comfortable and we have a great view looking west over the sea and the resort. The beds...More

The complex itself is lovely and quiet. They have entertainment from bands most nights in the hotel bar areas, but the bars are quite well away from the Residence rooms, and the bands play at a very acceptable volume level. You can sometimes hear music from the bars on the sea front, and the next door hotel, from our room, but it normally doesn't worry us at all. It's often quite pleasant background music.
We have been 'owners' of a time share in the Residence for about 8 years, and our week is mid October. What we have noticed is that the strip of park/grass between the hotel and the sea seems to be being used more for 'events' by the Madeira residents - I think this only at weekends from memory. When we were there last October there was a charity event on one day, and during the day there was a sort of dance aerobics class going on most of the time. The music was pretty loud, and certainly not to our taste, but it ceased late afternoon, and normality was restored.
I would say that the positives definitely outweigh this negatives at the Residence. The accommodation and facilities are superb. I would recommend you don't cancel, but be prepared to head off into town, or take a walk, if you find an event, or too much noise, at the weekend.
