The 2 bed apartment is really well equipped and smartly presented, with superb views of both the sea and Funchal . The support from the staff was good, the apartment was cleaned twice in a weeks stay . We did not use the pool as the weather was not warm enough - you get a breeze that high up ! We ate in 5 times as the facilities are good. The bus stops right outside and takes you into Funchal , every 30 minutes, about 20 minute trip . We hired a car for the week and travelled the whole island, loads to see , do not miss Porto Moniz ! The only issue we had with the apartment is they are on the main road , which surprised us from the pictures and write up, so be prepared for this. We originally tried to move but could not as no vacant properties , but we DID get used to it after a day. Also work out if you want an apartment with morning / early pm or late pm / evening sun .
