Baia Azul Hotel

Baia Azul Hotel, Funchal Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]

A mid range property, located slightly away from the main stretch of properties which lacks character and local charm. A shuttle bus is available and there are frequent services constantly passing along the main road.

The compact grounds may become rather cluttered at busy times although there are splendid views across the Atlantic Ocean from the pool area.

Baia Azul Hotel

Interior

A presentable and spacious marble lobby has an inviting reception area and limited seating. A large restaurant is modern and congenial with a long buffet area and plenty of space between the tables. A refectory style coffee shop appears more functional. A dated and nondescript bar is accompanied by a games room.

Rooms: 215

Grounds

The pool area enjoys sweeping views over the sea and there is a good supply of sunloungers on the narrow and somewhat cluttered surround. Wide white parasols offer some shade and there is little in the way of vegetation. A squash court and a sauna add to the list of facilities.

Location

Area Type: On a steep slope, below the main coast road, 3km from the central area of Funchal, with steep cliffs below. A promenade leading towards the Lido and its adjacent shopping centre stretches from 300m away and the popular Forum Shopping Mall is located 200m away. Bus stop for services into Funchal and on to the airport 50m.
