Third time at this hotel, as excellent as usual. This time with daughter and granddaughter. The staff were brilliant with the grandchild who was under two years old. No doubt we will be back in the near future.

Twenty minutes transfer from the airport and we arrived at the Madeira Palace. Check in was quick and informative with the staff even offering to set up your Wifi on devices if you were struggling. The rooms were large and very clean, our room 1604 had views of the sea and promenade plus the hillside to the right. The only...
