    Superb

    We spent a honeymoon in this hotel. We got a junior suite instead of a double room which was a nice surprise. The location is good though there are not too many possibilities to go in the evening, if you do not have a car rented. We had only breakfest included and its quality was good. The selection was not great but I always chose something. For dinner we either drove somewhere or used the kitchen in the room.

    Excellent free Nautilus equipped gymnasium and spa facilities. Beautiful wild coastline. Close to Funchal and Airport (10'). Funchal has many interesting sights. Local buses are cheap and local geography gves exciting rides!! Levada walking for the fit in dramatic terrain. 2 hotel restaurants and self catering gave good flexibility. Good choice of local restaurants within walking distance (10' max) Good musical entertainment on several nights.

    Very good

    Services: spa, gym, jacuzzi, pools, access to sea, location. Tourist information, car rental, bus to town, all nearby... all this is 4 stars.

    Bedroom: the water-taps in the WC are old; there are not enough wall outlets for charging PC, mobile phone, photo/video camera, etc. WiFi has to be payed for and is only available in the lobby! These items are more like 3 stars - they need an upgrade.

    Fabulous

    We loved the location and the facilities shared with the neighbouring hotel. We would definitely stay again - our room with balcony and sea view was great for the family.

    The hotel is becoming a little dated and will need refurbishing before too long

    Very good

    Relaxed atmosphere, beautiful, relatively quiet and nice location

    Hotel offers small apartments, but food stores are not in its direct environment. Breakfasts could be more (e.g. different sorts of fresh fruits and more healthy stuff)

  • 8.8
    Superb

    We loved the situation of the hotel with the fabulous views of the ocean and the peace and quiet of the daily routine. It is not a place for 'the high life' but is somewhere to go if you want to get away from it all.

    Good

    This was our second stay at the hotel - we use it to add a couple of days to our main holiday hotel venue. The seaside location is fantastic but again this year the sea was too rough for safe bathing - the swell was nearly 2m. The breakfast buffet was excellent including the best scrambled egg I have tasted anywhere. There is a courtesy bus to Funchal but it gets booked up early. Great views of the Desertas Islands

    The hotel is showing its age. Our bedroom in a junior suite had no air conditioning although there was a/c in the living kitchen area. Canico Baixo has limited choice of restaurants but we found 2 good locations for evening meals - further spots are in Canico, a short taxi ride away. If you want night life this is not the spot for you. If you want to relax and possibly enjoy sea swimming then it may suit you.

    Our apartment was large and clean and the towels were changed daily. The breakfast was fine and the staff friendly. The swimming pool and gym were excellent. We used the hotel bus several times and the service was good.

    Good

    Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful Food was good quality

    The hotel is in need of refurbishment. It had leaking roofs. Water ingress through electrical fittings. There was a strong drains smell in our room. Ironmongery was worn. Lighting in public areas was dull making the place seem gloomy. Building repairs were proceeding thus a lot of machinery noise.
