The cleanliness and facilities of the rooms and the lovely food and location provided by this excellent hotel.
We have recently booked again for May 2011 to experience the Madeiran flower festival which will be an opportunity to see some of this islands beautiful flora.
The hotel is clean and although we only stayed under a bed and breakfast arrangement, the breakfasts were excellent. The choice was great and the food fresh. If you get down earlier enough you will be able to sit outside for breakfast...not to be missed!
The pool area's are great. There is an area near the hotel with a heated indoor swimming pool, or you can ride the lift down to the open pools and go swimming off of the private quay.
the location is good, with both shops and restuarants with in easy walking distance.
The staff are polite and helpful which helped make our stay there very, very pleasent.

The Hotel is very clean and staff were excellent and would do anything for you.
We ordered room service and this was very reasonable and wasn't overcharged.
We had a bathrobe and slippers in our room.
Rooms weer furnished to a high standard and the food was excellent, especially the breakfasts.
Portions were too big for a lunch time snack!
If you are going to Madeira, this hotel is a must!

Pool and spa areas are lovely - especially the indoor areas, which was good as it rained most of the week we were there.
Only used the hotel for breakfast and afternoon tea.
Food and drink prices were very expensive. I don't know why they do that! 7euro for an Irish coffee is over the top in my view. The sister hotel in Old Town (Porto Santa Maria) had a lovely bar and did a proper 2 for 1 happy hour, with a reasonably priced drinks menu.
Great location for sea views etc, and not too far a walk into town.
Would stay here again, but would want to get into the Porto Santa Maria and Porto Mare to give those a try.

The hotel arranged for football tickets to see nacional Maderia v Porto and the taxi driver.We have already booked for April and Oct 2006
Visit LAREIRA Restaurant no more than 100yds from the hotel it is superb. Swimming pools always clean rooms spaciuos and spotless, I just hope everyone does not discover Maderia

The rooms are well laid out and it's definitely worth paying extra for a full sea view!
The staff are first class, so helpful and friendly.
The lagoon pool at sea level is superb with excellent lunch time snacks/meals available at the poolside bar.
The spa area is beautifully set up and it's worth staying at the hotel for this alone!!!
Finally, I don't think anyone could stay at this hotel without mentioning the breakfasts!!! Which are just too good!!!!
There are so many little touches that make this hotel special. I would recommend it to anyone!
