This hotel is fantastic …the staff is amazing the views are incredible the rooms are simple nice and clean! There are restaurants within walking distance that are wonderful. I will say dinner at hotel is great. The breakfast is awesome! Close to the hotel is the promenade that you can walk all the way to Funchal! The pool area is really nice and small. We never went into Funchal to eat because the taxi ride was 25 euros one way and plenty of restaurants in this cute little town! I am going back in May! I liked being on the second floor .

The hotel was lovely made better by the staff, especially Ana on reception.|Our room was facing the side street and very quiet. The room had all the amenities we needed..|Camara de Lobos is a wonderful spot. Not far from the capital Funchal which you can reach by the local bus. The hotel looks out onto the bay. We sat in front of the hotel and watched the world go by and all the visitors taking their photo with a statue of Winston Churchill.|Breakfast was on the first floor overlooking the bay. Dinner could also be taken there too and the food was excellent. All the staff did a very good job.|We look forward to visiting again.
