It is part Hotel part time share as a lot of the 5* hotels in Madeira are.
The Hotel was clean but old and tired looking.
We were told it is due next year for a re fit.
We ate at the hotel bar and resturants the food was good but expensive.
Location I thought it was about the best in the area apart from all the building work going on.
Both sides there is major building going on. 2 new hotels.
Not finished untill Dec 08 at the earliest
The builders work 12 hour days 7 till 7 . 6 days a week.
Can't fault the staff, the best I have ever met.
Poor only saw a man on the piano in the bar and a couple singing by the pool. We went out most nights.
When the buliding work is finished and the place as been refitted I would stay there again if I got a good price.
Mostly for the indoor pool the spa and the location.

The rooms were clean and well equipped and the view from balcony overlooked the sea and pool as did most rooms. The pool area was clean and tidy and towels were provided as well as sunbeds and umbrellas free of charge.
The location of the hotel was just outside of Funchal but a courtesy bus was provided on the hour for the short trip into Town Centre. I would recommend this hotel to families with children as well as couples.

Food good if you like fish, but a rather poor selection for a 5 star.
Entertainment was the same for our second week as the first which we thought was poor.
The free bus to Funchal was excellent, always punctual.
Staff were really good throughout the hotel, nothing was ever too much trouble.
Overall, a lovely hotel, but found Madeira a bit too hilly, and we're quite fit!
Would only re-visit if a real bargin came up.

The hotel itself was brilliant. It has a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi as well as an indoor and outdoor pool. There are also a wide range of treatments available. If you like to keep fit on holiday there is a full gym as well as a squash court and regular aerobics classes. I did have good intentions but somehow never made it to the gym!
The breakfast was wonderful with such a great choice.
There is a bar with evening piano music which was very pleasant and a nightclub which is open until 1am. The entertainment was different every night and very good. They also have a disco and are happy to play requests! The drinks menu was excellent and reasonably priced.
There is a regular courtesy bus from the hotel into Funchal which we found to be very useful indeed. Also the hotel has free internet access.
All in all we had a great time and would definitely return to Funchal and stay in this hotel.

Breakfast was nothing less than a feast with plenty of choice to suit every taste.
All the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
The pool area was very clean with plenty of sun beds.
All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday.
Can't wait to go back next year.

There was not too much in the way of entertainment, although there was a pianist each night and there was a magician for one night whilst we were there. Being on a B&B basis we only sampled breakfasts which were plentiful. There was an offer of 3 meals in any of the restaurants for 82.5 Euros, however this did not seem such a great deal when you consider that it would cost 30 Euros just to turn up and eat at any of the themed evening meals. A saving of only 7.5 Euros for this meal plan. a great pool area overlooking the sea with free towels and sun loungers.
