Excellent location for restaurants and bars, and a pleasant walk into Funchal itself. We unfortunately found that the accommodation wasn’t as clean as we would have liked, attention to detail in this area was sadly missing and the decor could do with a re vamp. Also we weren’t able to use the bath as the plug supplied didn’t fit the hole. That being said the place was ideal for our three year old as we weren’t watching his every move in case he made a mess or marked anything. The communal pool area was great (hardly anyone else using it) AYS Madeira and it’s staff were very helpful with any queries or issues. We were able to access the accommodation earlier than planned and also to stay in slightly longer on the day we were due to check out.

The best part for us was the the great views along the coast in both directions, listening to the waves,watching the cruise ships and the fantastic sunsets. The position of the apartment is perfect, shops and restaurants very close but you would never realise this whilst sitting on the peaceful balcony with a glass of wine (or two)!
