The wide and inviting lobby, with its majestic column and marble cladding has distinct business like fee, especially when there are delegates attending the extensive conference facilities.
An enormous and somewhat impersonal lounge has floor to ceiling windows with views over the ocean. A panoramic restaurant accommodates 620 people at any one time, but there are some intimate areas for those seeking privacy. The main lobby bar is supported by a well-stocked cocktail bar.
The grounds are distinctly upmarket and offer splendid views out across the sea towards Funchal’s harbour. A glamorous atmosphere prevails which would not be out of place on the Cite d’Azur with elegant sunloungers, striped towels and smart parasols on display.
Tall palms and mature shrubs provide additional shade and the pool meanders into the garden to provide a cool and majestic ambience. The spa facility offers a wide range of treatments and there is an indoor pool available.
Area Type: Located 500m to the W of the resort centre, on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, in a convenient area for relatively easy access to the main sights and public transport. There are other similar properties around including the Pestana Carlton Park, 200m away. Buses regularly pass along the main road to Funchal’s centre and beyond.
