Great to be able to wander from the lounge straight into the jacuzzi without having to think about anybody else! The location is ideal, only a short walk into Funchal, but if you don't want to go that far the restaurants and cafes locally are excellent. The manager who met us was very helpful and quickly returned to replace a couple of light bulbs. Everything was exactly as claimed in the advert and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
