Excellent accomodation

5 of 5
Our third visit to Madeira and by far the best place we have stayed. The accomodation is excellent. Was extremely clean and very well maintained. It is in a brilliant location. So easy to walk into the town and with supermarket in the same building. We also used Americo's services as our airport taxi driver and also as our driver/guide for a day trip to the east side of the island. Lovely and friendly man. Thanks also to Ivone for purchasing our tickets for seats at the flower festival. We will be back to Madeira and we will look no further than staying here. Would have no hesitation is recommending to anyone wanting to visit Madeira to stay here. Thank you for helping make our holiday memorable

Great taste all through the property

5 of 5
It's as described however I was unable to make true use of the apartment as on our arrival my companion suffered a stroke. I therefore cannot truely comment. What I will say is that Sarah came to the rescue in calling an ambulance and offering to help in any way. She was I believe genuinely concerned and phoned on several occasions for updates. I think if she hadn't been there I would have taken longer to call an ambulance and in these cases speed is of the essence, so therefore 5 stars and a public thank you.
