    Direct access to the beach, which means you can hear the bed the atlantic waves and no traffic noise. The shopping possibilities in the area are rather rare. A rental car for a few days is to be recommended, the wonderful island to explore. Excursions to Funchal ( about 6 kilometer), with the hotel shuttle are taken. After camara de lobos there are 2 kilometer on the waterfront. A nice evening stroll.

    Breakfast: there was a hot and cold buffet. The selection changed little, but there was something of everything, so that always something found, the him tasted. Always fresh pineapple, sometimes bananas, pancakes, cakes, very good selection of bread. Dinner in form of a buffet: always the 2 fish and 2 meat dishes, starters buffet and dessert buffet, in addition there was always a soup. International and portuguese cuisine, a bit apprehensive seasoned (with a little chili from the supermarket was it delicious!) Very clean tables, attentive service, the drink prices were moderate.
