No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]
A pleasing, rather upmarket choice that attracts many guests who are impressed by the wide range of facilities, oceanside location and state of the art sports and health club.
Facilities are shared with the two nearby sister properties and a lift takes guests down to a lower building with its own lido on the rocks. Many guests find that the number of onsite facilities gives little need to venture outside.
A car park and large main entrance is located off the short driveway. A pleasantly arranged rambling array of beige coloured buildings with red pitched roofs has sunny balconies and terraces overlooking the sea. An additional lower level communal area is accessed by a cliffside lift. A single storey extension stretches from one side of the main building into the gardens and towards the cliff edge.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
A small, bright lobby offers a warm, riendly welcome from its tiny reception desk. Wicker seating provides some space for relaxation and stairs lead down to a prestigious looking restaurant with well chosen fabrics and tableware. Sea views are enjoyed from the floor to ceiling windows.
An additional pizzeria is located in a corner building with its own off street entrance. A vast health and sports centre is also used by non residents.
The large, well maintained pool surround has a vast sunbathing area beside it and a lower area of terraces provide additional space for relaxation at the water’s edge. A neat lawn has a smart looking bar providing alfresco drinks and snacks.
There is a plentiful supply of sunbathing furniture which may also be used by those from the two sister properties.
Area Type: In the heart of the quiet and relaxed Canico de Baixo area, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, with a pair of sister properties adjacent and along the road. There is a selection of local shops, car hire offices and eateries from 150m away and a courtesy bus operates at regular intervals to Funchal.
