    I like it's location - away from, but accessible to, Funchal. I like that it's quiet. I like the views (from every room). I think the informal buffet arrangement is good and efficient.

    The beds are quite hard.

    Very good 3* hotel.

    No a/c. Passage to the beach is steep. No good for old people and small kids.
