Car neede if you want to see the island. 15 minutes walk some of which is quite steep takes you to local shops bars and bus stop for 15 minutes ride into Funchal. I have to say for the price I felt a bit disappointed by the quality of linen towels and crockery which wasn't to a standard expected. Linen and towels in short supply should be replaced more than once a week or at least a supply provided for use as required. That apart we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here
