I have seen some poor reviews of the hotel and have to wonder what some people expect for the price. Yes the building is showing it's age somewhat and is a little 'frayed-round-the-edges', but it is clean, friendly and excellent value. The upper floors (we were on the 10th) have fantastic sea views, the rooms are surprisingly roomy and have...

It has free WiFi in a public lounge but you have to pay for your room access. There is an outside pool which was clear and uncrowded. There is a...

Do not be put off by the negative reviews as we found our stay here to be more than adequate for the price that we paid. We found all the staff to be friendly & the room was cleaned daily with fresh towels.There is a choice of hot or cold breakfast with fresh fruit which again was quite sufficient. There...

Booked a last minute break through Thomsons. I emailed the hotel in advance to request a high room with a sea view which we were given. The views of Funchal were amazing and the room was great. It was really handy having the kitchenette in the room and we enjoyed our early morning cup of coffee sitting on the balcony...
