Very nice indeed!
Stayed for a night before flying home. Hotel was really nice, the Aircon certainly worked on the 3rd floor, so well we turned it off. Very comfortable clean and modern. Pool looked nice. Their restaurant by the Church just down the road gave us the best meal of our trip and was 10% off. Exceptional steak on the stone, very cheap!

4/10 Fair

We were excited to stay here for one night to be able to get to the airport easily. They don’t provide a shuttle but it was a $10 taxi ride from the hotel. We unfortunately were given a room where the AC did not work so it was a hot box the entire night. My husband went downstairs to ask about the AC and they replied back that the cleaners were just in there and it is working. We said it’s not working so what should we do? She said try these steps and it will work. We said if we try these steps and it doesn’t work, what do we do? And she said it will work. We tried all the steps multiple times and it was still a hot box. Since we had to wake up at 3:30am for our flight we didn’t want to deal with it and tried to go to sleep. To say the least, it was not a good nights sleep that we needed before a long journey home. This hotel has so many good reviews and that’s why we chose it so that’s disappointing. Our bed was also poorly made and there were hairs (from previous guests) on the floor and the bathroom floor. Since we slept poorly, we wish we would have just paid a little more to stay in Funchal and wake up earlier to the airport.

The hotel was lovely, we were greeted at the door by a staff member and they checked-in to our room quickly. We were three travellers and booked a two twin bed room. The hotel installed an additional bed (regular bed not a cot) in the room for the third traveller so we all had a comfortable place to sleep. Overall great experience.

Could be a cute property if properly run. Building has charm. However, the AC didn't work and required multiple trips to the front desk where they never sent anyone to my room, just gave me instructions on how to reset it myself. My sister in a different room never got hers to work. They don't stock enough towels in the room and no shampoo or conditioner. The fitness center has not been cleaned in maybe a year and consists of a few broken pieces of equipment. The included breakfast consisted of sweet eggs and hotdogs and frozen orange juice and a automatic coffee machine. We went once and never went back. There is a tiny pool but no pool towel are provided so you have to take the only two towels they give you from your room. Overall, staff was not friendly or helpful if you could even find them and the hotel was a disappointment. Stay somewhere else.
