modern hotel in the funchal marina, with all equipments expected from such hotel chain. Public areas and rooms are comfy, modern but without any particular charm. hotel decoration and atmosphere not particularly luxurious nor special and somewhat unpersonal. Pools areas, inside and outside, are better. Service was friendly as usually in portugal, breakfast fine, just fine. We decided to eat...

Spent 5 nights here in December 2014. Staff were really welcoming and friendly, great buffet breakfast. A bit of a walk into Funchal but easy access to taxis and buses and plenty of tourist offices offering attractions right outside the hotel. The room was lovely and had a great surprise of chocolates for my birthday which I really wasn't expecting!...

This is an excellent well-run hotel with spacious clean rooms, well appointed spa and fitness facilities, more than adequate food and friendly staff. It is hard to find fault except that we did have to ask for more milk in our room on more than one occasion and the 'industrial coffee' at breakfast could be better. When mid-market Accor hotels...

Lovely clean hotel, taxi ride away from the centre. the rooms and beds very comfortable, it was cleaned everyday. The staff very accommodating and helpful. The only downfall is the spa has to be paid for, which we didn't know, its usually 22 euros for 1.5 hours or free if you have a treatment. The spa is lovely and well...

This is a very nice hotel. I have stayed in better 5 star hotels, but they all cost from twice the price up to 5 times the price of this one!
