Why Vera Prada chose Funchal

Location and Exclusive Charme

Also a short walk away are a wide choice of traditional and international restaurants at reasonable prices - just a minute away, you have at least ten recommended restaurants and bars.

The ideal setting on the 4th floor means you can be in the heart of all the action but enjoying peace and quiet, and of course lovely sea views as it has a large south facing private balcony. The best of both worlds!

A lovely apartment spoilt by noisy neighbours.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was as advertised, well located with many restaurants, bars and a supermarket nearby. It was very comfortable, clean and well equipped with a large furnished balcony overlooking the sea. The bathroom was a little dated and the shower would really benefit from a new shower head as the present one only produces a 'dribble'.

We had a number of maintenance issues when we arrived but these were addressed by the end of the following day.

The apartment is above two busy roads which can be noisy particularly in the morning and evening. The double glazing is effective in reducing the noise - if you can keep the windows closed! There is no air conditioning!

What really spoilt our holiday however was the noise from one of the apartments on the floor above. We were disturbed by a great deal of shouting, door slamming and a dog running around and barking. This usually occurred between midnight and 3 or 4 in the morning and continued for 10 of our 14 night stay. Unfortunately this was not something that the management company could remedy, so although this is a lovely apartment that suits our needs it is not somewhere we will consider staying again.

Owner's Response: Dera Guest, Thank you for your nice words In relation to the Lido Flat. We have replaced the heater and the head of the shower and the water issues were solved. In relation to one noise of a neighbour, we presented a complain to the manager of the apartments building and also to the public authorities. We believe that is now solved. The guest that is now staying there did not report any noise issue. Thank you and kind regards. Vera

Very poor hot water supply in bathroom and shower

Nice apartment shame about the shower and hot water very poor will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We realized recently that it is not easy to reach the ideal temperature at the shower (sometimes it os too hot) and also at the sink. The previous guests managed how it works and did not complain at all. Nevertheless, be sure that we are going to replace immediately the shower tap and if necessary the boiler. Since you considered Lido Flat nice, we hope you may come back and realize that this water issue is solved. You will be welcome. Best wishes from Madeira. Vera

Stunning view Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic 3 weeks staying in the Lido Apartment. Everything was first rate from the moment we arrived at the airport and were met and transported into Funchal.

The apartment was clean, light and spacious with a wonderful south facing balcony where we were able to eat breakfast and lunch everyday. Having an espresso machine was a nice little bonus.

Getting sufficient hot water to the shower was a little temperamental but manageable.

All in all superb in a great location with supermarkets, restaurants and great walks close by.

We know it's there and I'm sure we'll be back next time we spend a few winter weeks in beautiful Funchal.

All you may news in the best location in town

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank Vera and the property manager, Cecilia for their kind attention.

Premium service, without interfering, from the moment of the booking till after check out. We could not request for more.

Apartment (everything you might need, is there) and location (Lido area, near sea, with walking distance to Funchal old town centre), just great.

We spent a long time looking at apartments reviews in Funchal and we are so happy. We did the right choice!

Within 15 minutes walking there are two more beaches (Doca do Cavacas and Praia Formosa).

In Estrada Monumental, you will find lots of restaurants and bars, and everything you need to have a fantastic holiday. There are information centres nearby, with what to do and what to see in Funchal and Madeira, car/moto/segaway/bike rentals and host of other facilities that will make your holiday enjoyable.

Lido is the beginning of the “Promenade” that reaches the picturesque fishermen town of Câmara de Lobos (to the west). It is a fabulous walking path at sea level. Sometimes, “touching” the sea!

But, even in holidays, you will not miss shopping! Within a 10 minutes walk, you have the buzzing Forum Shopping Centre, with dozens of shops of international brands, restaurants, bars and cinema.
