However Mr & Mrs MelHuish were incredibly understanding and helpful. If I get the chance to visit madeira again there's no where else I'd rather stay. Many thanks

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The pool was ideal for little ones as was the games room. The view is spectacular and a perfect way to watching the sunset. Whilst there were very minor faults this did not in anyway spoil our time here. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and would return here in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Melluash
