The hotel was fantastic and ideal to just chill out and recharge your batteries ready for the next stint at work earning enough to pay for the next break. It was a little further from the centre of the resort than we thought but the hotel laid on a mini bus free of charge several times each day.the food of...

What a lovely place to stay , clean, efficient, well run, friendly and helpful. This hotel has a wonderful outlook to Funchal which is an hour downhill walk. Local busses pass every hour and the hotel offers a regular daily drop off and pick up from Funchal. The food is great with plenty to choose from at breakfast, snacks and...

The hotel was very nice and clean with a beautiful sea view. Receptionists extremely helpful. I had a twin room & was really pleased with it. Breakfast was fresh and more than adequate. I booked the transfers to/from the Hotel, but Bus 113 goes to/from the airport & stops outside the hotel for about 3 euros & 15 cents. Look...

Went in the first week of December and the weather was disappointing, mainly rain with one fine day, which didn't help matters. This hotel is 15 minutes drive from Funchal along narrow roads without pathways. The hotel did provide a few shuttle twice a day, which was appreciated. The hotel pool was freezing and no jacuzzi, but sauna working, although...

Had a wonderful week at this beautiful hotel. Exceptionally clean, spacious and nicely furnished rooms. (We had a sea view)We opted for B&B and a plentiful breakfast was offered. The pool area ( on top of the hotel with amazing views over Funchal) was lovely and peaceful. The only downside was that there is no pool bar although a phone...

Just back from 7 nights at the Ocean Gardens. The hotel and grounds are immaculately kept. We booked via Trivago and had a good deal on 7 nights B & B with an upgraded room - the views from the superior rooms are outstanding and have the sun from midday till sunset.

My husband and I visited the Ocean Gardens in August 2013. It didnt disappoint! The views are incredible and thats what sells the hotel, staff are so welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The hotel is a cab ride/bus/shuttle service away from the main town centre (we did try and walk it but we dont recommend it!)...
