This hotel...

I would like to start by saying, like most other people the Hotel is on a bit of a hill but that much it cannot control. The bits that it can are great. My wife and I stayed there in March this year and everything was great including the weather. We enjoyed the walks down to Funchal and back, which...

We stayed at this hotel in April for 10 night. The hotel is immaculate and the food is fabulous plenty of choices at all meals. Great location for exploring the area and getting about, no flip flops !! It's very hilly in all directions. We enjoyed a lovely walk to the village Camara de Lobos and had a fabulous meal...

If you like lazing by the pool one day & going out for strolls to explore your surroundings the next, then Madeira and this hotel is not for you.
