                      It is an excellent hotel in the most beautiful island of Europe. The satff is friendly and helpful, room are very clean and big, garden and pool is with excellent view on the ocean.

                      It would be important to have a free wi-fi at least in the lobby, because local internet did not work

                      Well located. Good staff. Plenty of food with good variety. Large comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Good swimming pools.

                      The pools were very nice but the seawater was a hinderance to swimming as it was so salty that it hurt the eyes. Perhaps a mixture of fresh and sea would be better.

                      Very convenient to walk to Funchal, which we needed because we were conducting business in Funchal.

                      The challenge with the business office computer and then having to print at the reception area which was on an different floor. The worse part was that you pay 3 euros for one hour and then the directions state that you can "disconnect" if you don't use all of your allotted time. That was not true at all. We spoke with reception about this and we shared their directions with them. They didn't even appear to be aware. You should also be able to charge to your room automatically the pc use rather than having to get a special user id and password.

                      Large, comfortable and well maintained rooms. Fantastic position overlooking sea. It's always worth paying extra for sea view room.

                      Like most hotels in Madeira, it is expensive especially for a solo traveller.

                      Excellent location. This hotel is within walking distance to Funchal's most interesting attractions. Our suite was great. The distribution of the room was particularly good. The hotel has a very complete and well maintained fitness/spa area. The pools are nice and inviting because of their cleanliness. The pool-side lounge/bar/restaurant was convenient, service was great but a bit pricy for the quality of the food. We highly recommend this hotel.

                      It was a bit strange to be asked for a tip when settling the check at the end of our stay. Atlantic pool's water was too cold to enjoy it in February. Gym's opening hours were too short, opening hour was late and closing was too early. Breakfast hours should be extended to 11 am.

                      The lack of facilities for coffee during the day. It was immpossible to buy a coffee during the morning without going down to the pool as all other bars & restaurants were closed. The only way to get coffe in the indoor lounges was to either use room service at an extra cost, or go down to the pool & bring it back up 6 floors.

                      Excellent location, great sea view from rooms (17 floors), swimming pools and private ocean access. Comfortable and modern rooms, unobtrusive staff. Excellent stay overall.

                      We could use a little more privacy - rooms' balconies are separated only by thin glass so it was too easy to hear and sometimes see what was going on in the neighbours' room :-)

                      Great breakfast and views! Highly reccomend going for the sea view suite! Awesome staff that were very friendly and accomodating. Gorgeous hotel as well

                      The beds unfortunately were not that great-even though they had a fabulous pillow menu. The beds definately should have been more comfortable for a 5 star hotel

                      Excellent location (Pub Number Two in front of Hotel), Between the Marina and the Lido areas - walking distance to both, friendly staff, excellent garden and pools. Interior pool, gym, Turkish/Scottish bath and sauna all free for guests, free rope and towels to pool, extra child bed for free. The staff was kind to take care of our luggage before check-in and after check-out. All employees very very professional and very kind. Excellent 5 stars hotel.

                      The breakfast was very nice, with lots of variety, but as a Portuguese I was expecting to find also some traditional Madeira food at breakfast, like bolo de mel and fruits: the local bananas, maracuja, etc. Parking is free for the first two hours, which is great but after that you pay by the hour. The restaurants are a bit expensive for the Portuguese (there is a special dinner at Tuesdays that will cost you about 29€ for each person).

                      The heated swimming pool, roomy balcony to the Jun. suite

                      We enjoyed staying in the spacious junior suite room with the superb seaview and the garden and the outdoorpool view. The hotel staff members were friendly and the food was good. Though we had to walk for twenty minutes or so or take a bus to the city centre, we were happy that we chose to stay at this hotel. We'd like to come back again some day.

                      Too big. Restaurant, particularly at breakfast, was like a factory.

                      Well located just a 5/10 minutewalk away from several good quality restaurants in the hotel district and 15/20 minute walk to the old town. Staff excellent. Fabulous view of the pool and sea from the room.

                      Parking at the hotel expensive, no room wi-fi.
