Having just read this, I do not recognise where they are coming from. No TV channels in English - don't they know how to change channels on the cable box rather than just on the TV? Cleanliness - was absolutely fine - it is older, with character, so it is not going to be antiseptically clean. Great views, although the far left is being slightly diminished by the new hotel. No noise as far as we were aware. Management very helpful. Finally, it is very, very, cheap for somewhere so large so near the middle of Funchal. We have recommended it friends since we returned.

We found the apartment to be clean, spacious and in a good location for the Old Town. Everything was as expected and all our needs were met. We also booked the transfer service from and to the airport which operated like clockwork. We would gladly stay at this apartment again.

The car park, which is within the apartment block, is also a real bonus, as is the free wifi. The apartment also has a lovely balcony offering great views, exactly like the photo in the advert. We enjoyed breakfast out here every day and often had dinner there too. There's information in the apartment for tourist attractions, transport etc. Communication with the owner before and on arrival was very prompt and reliable. We were met by a friendly and helpful manager who showed us around the property and gave us useful advice. The apartment is excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if we return to Madeira. Many thanks for everything - we had a great holiday!
