A perfectly located apartment for seafront, shops and all bus routes a short distance away, with a wonderful outlook over an attractive park and mountain in the distance. There are many restaurants and cafes nearby from which to choose plus a theatre just across the street where they hold frequent concerts.
This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment and we cannot rate it too highly. In the heart of Funchal overlooking lovely gardens, with easy access to restaurants, cafes, shopping, museums, churches, and links to regular buses to all parts of the island, this would suit anyone who had no hire car. However, if you hired transport there is a secure underground car parking space which is fully manned and monitored 24hrs a day. A pleasant stroll would take you to other places of interest such as the market, the harbour and marina. Spotlessly clean and simply furnished with comfortable, stylish pieces and a fully fitted kitchen area, a bathroom with bath/shower and the usual other furniture, a bedroom with a lovely, comfortable double bed and adequate storage space and a large, comfortable lounge/dining room, the accommodation is perfect for two. The owners, Lorraine and Peter, were on hand to greet us and the welcome pack was a lovely, thoughtful touch. Throughout our stay they were available for advice and help with our questions about the island, places to visit, walks, restaurants - in fact nothing was too much trouble for them and they made our stay even more enjoyable. We intend to return to Madeira in the future and will make this our No.1 choice in Funchal. Many thanks to you both - we will soon return!
Stayed in Apartment Arriaga 7-14th of February 2017, couldn't be better located for all city (Funchal) centre activities, only 100 metres to the seafront and access to transport for the whole of the island. Plus no hills to climb (a rarity in Madeira)! The apartment is on the high side of luxury but at a very affordable price, set in a quiet condominium overlooking the Municipal gardens and park with many cafes, restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. The apartment is fully equipped for all needs although we ate out every day except for breakfast. Will certainly go back to this apartment when visiting Madeira again, hopefully soon as Madeira has so much to see and do.
The location changed our Madeira holiday. We got to know Funchal so much better. It's close to everything, transport, restaurants, sights and concerts. Housekeeping was very good and the apartment is really comfortable. A quiet location apart from Saturday night when everyone comes out to play. Join in or bring earplugs. haha!
A beautifully located spacious apartment for two, tastefully decorated and comfortable with all amenities within walking distance. Shops, entertainment, places to dine or purchase groceries. Television (with channels in English) and free Wifi.
Great value and a pleasure to stay in.
