A slightly off centre base that pleases those who prefer a property with a good range of facilities.
The sizeable indoor pool is a welcome bonus and compensates for the small outdoor option. The lido style sunbathing deck on the edge of the ocean is particularly attractive for those who do not mind the flights of steps down to the water’s edge.
A cream and off white coloured building which initially looks somewhat bland and unexciting. The curving sea facing balconies, however, provide splendid views across the Atlantic Ocean and along the coast. A wide glass panelled entrance at the rear provides a cheerful and warm welcome to new arrivals.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 2001
The interior is cheerfully designed and rather colourful with an inviting lobby offering some seating and a small reception area. The spacious restaurant has colourful murals on the walls, brightly coloured red and purple textiles. The bar and lounge areas are equally cheerful with even brighter furnishings, much wood panelling and tall, red cushioned bar stools.
The gardens are somewhat compact but well tended and attractive. Sweeping sea views are enjoyed from the ocean side deck with its small pool, children’s splash pool and attractive bar/snack bar with its blue trim and comfortable seating. There is an adequate supply of sunloungers and parasols and a limited amount of vegetation.
Area Type: Located at the extreme SW end of the long strand of hotels and apartment blocks that stretch out from the western fringes of Funchal. There are other modern accommodation options in the same area as well as a range of shops, bars and restaurants. Buses regularly pass along the road on their way to and from Funchal centre and the airport and the Forum shopping centre is 300m away.
