Our return to Madeira was well worth the wait.
It was excellent. The location, staff friendliness and efficiency was of the higher order. The buffet breakfast and dinner was fantastic the like of which we have not seen before.

Everything was great but in our room was very loud at night. We prefer to go to sleep not late to wake up before sunrise. It was impossible to sleep before midnight. I believe there should be a choice of rooms in terms of noise level preferably at arrival. Otherwise it was great.

We like the pools, breakfast and the buffet diner with folklore performance. Easy access to Funchal by public bus.The apartment was spacious and had big balcony. There was nothing which we didn't like. Excellent place to stay.

Fabulous Resort.
Stunning interior with magnificent gardens and pool area. Staff all very professional and friendly. Great choice for breakfast and change of theme if you want to eat in the evening. Happy hour a bonus and entertainment in the bar was really good. Great location - a gentle walk (no hills) into town in about 30/40 minutes plus bus stop located just outside the main entrance with regular service.
