Not too far from airport
It was advertised as a 5 star but at best was a 3 star with no facilities available to get changed on returning to the UK
The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful and always on hand if you needed a top up.
The breakfast and lunch menus were standard and OK, however the evening meal was not to everyone's taste and the only option was to eat out as the alternative restaurants were overbooked weeks in advance, not very helpful when you were only staying a week, and when paying for full board you expect more choice. The courtesy shuttle bus was sometimes full and you were stranded at the hotel or town until the next one.
Perfect holiday, friendly and helpfull staff. Super hotel.
The hotel is aimed at clients especially from France at the age 60+.
The location is perfect until you do not want to be close to the real touristy part of the town, You can meet local people and use their service....good coffee shops, hair dresser, laundry, pharmacy in the close neighborhood. The hotel is large and clean, we liked the common areas, halls, pool area etc. The family suite is large enough for 2 adults + 1 baby but don't think it can be comfortable for 2+2 type of family. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful including waiters, cleaning crew etc.
The coffee is undrinkable!! If you want a real espresso you need to leave the hotel...the good news is that it is really cheap in this part of the town (0.7 EUR). The food is a strong average...after a few days you feel everything has the same taste. The key is to set the right expectation. I did not expect more in an all inclusive hotel but as we traveled with a 18 months baby it was important to have food available all day. If you want to get to know the taste of Madeira you need to have some lunch and dinner outside of the hotel. The pool bar was above my expectations though...
Stuff was awesome, very helpfull and it was really a pleasure to meet them every day
Food was less than average. It was a wide menu to choose from, but it tasted the same, and it was really not good. We travelled with a friends, 4 peaople got foos poisoned and from 2 of my family. Some of kitchen stuff were really tired and not pleasent to meet at all..
Located in São Martinho, this luxury hotel is within 1 mi (2 km) of Formosa Beach and Lido. CR7 Museum and Funchal Marina are also within 3 mi (5 km).
