Nice view, good service. food soso , small pools
Upon arriving they told us they overbooked but they will take us to the other hotel across the street (which turns out to be down the slope), we can still use all facilities but we really couldn't be bothered to walk so we didn't get to use the fitness center. The other hotel is spacious and closer to the sea which is good. Tv is smaller than my desktop monitor but good for relaxing. In generally we are happy but I am not liking the way they overbook as the original hotel seems the best established and better rooms. It is a big complex like a maze connecting 3-4 hotels, many small pool here and there. Main pool is smaller than pictures and irregular shape. Indoor one in my hotel is either too shallow or too deep for us moderate swimmers. Try Atlantis hotel which is good and avoid the bar above Atlantis for food, the wrap they gave me is disgusting, not properly wrapped (all spread out when you pick it up with long holes on it), sandwich for my partner was a wrongly order and they scrap the wrong ingredients off and put some other ingredients back on. Stick with the standard drinks then you can enjoy the nice view. The neighborhood only got few restaurants but if you are staying for a few days then it's not a problem.

Fabulous hotel in a perfect setting!
There's not a lot that you can fault about this hotel! It's a beautiful hotel with excellent facilities, the majority of the staff were amazing. There's one woman who works behind the pool bar and in the pizza place and she was quite rude but other than that I really cannot fault a single thing. The breakfast choice was brilliant, the room was spotless everyday, and the maids are so friendly. Everyone makes an effort to help you with anything you need. We were only a short taxi ride from Funchal and there's so many activities to get involved in and enjoy! Lillian from lokoloko was brilliant, she secretly helped my boyfriend plan a private boat on the sunset for him to propose to me! It's an idealic place and we would definetly go back again!

Very nice hotel but let down by the buffet dinner
This hotel is part of a group of three, but it does not feel in a large resort. We had a pleasant room in the 'studios' with a seaview. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Although the ad. said we would have wifi in the room, we were told we wouldn't but in fact did intermittently. Large gym with lots of equipment and a small but heated indoor pool. Buffet breakfast had a good selection but the eggs were always cold - surely it's not too difficult to produce a hot fried egg. Buffet dinners were not so good; selection was fine but food stood too long, and was often both overcooked and cool. There are a few restaurants and little shops near the hotel; buses into Funchal take about half an hour and are not comfortable.

A very happy and memorable stay
Definitely recommended and I hope we return someday. On arrival the hotel felt a bit impersonal, however after doing the introductory tour and meeting staff from the hotel including the lovely Nicole! it felt like a really friendly place, with staff keen to make our stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The tour also showed us the impressive range of facilities and activities available. During our holiday we did some yoga (free), had a massage (extra cost), and used the spa / sauna facilities (free)- all of which were very high quality. The bedroom was fine with a wonderful view, and the bed and pillows very comfortable. It was great hearing the cicadas and seabirds at night-time. Breakfast was fine- huge choice- and we epecially enjoyed the fruit salad. Food in the bar and Atlantico restaurant was lovely. The location in Canico de Baixo is very good, with other hotels in the area but not quite as built up as Funchal, with close local amenities. It's convenient to explore the rest of the island with good bus connections to Funchal, but the only slight negative is there just aren't enough fast buses for tourists. The slow bus takes a scenic route close to the coast, after visiting a couple of towns, worth doing once. However all the buses we got on were very full, and one bus even had to leave some people behind. I think they should be every half hour at this time of year. Thank you for a great holiday.

Great value resort with plenty to do
Last minute trip at a great B&B rate. Only 15 minute taxi ride from the airport but not airport noise in the resort. Canico itself is a small town with little going on but there's plenty to do in the hotel which is actually a group of 3 hotels in the same resort. Owned by a German family for many years there is of course a predominance of German guests but this is not a "towels on the subbed place" at least when I went. The place is clean, tidy, well run and the staff are friendly. Plenty to do if you're into diving (Manta Diving Centre on site), trekking, mountain biking etc but nothing much to walk to locally.
