I was unfortunate enough to test positive for Covid before travelling home. After spending two days in quarantine at the Enotel I was moved by a hazard team to this hotel. Once I’d recovered from the shock of the whole thing I relaxed. I spent a whole week lying in the sun on my balcony with beautiful sea views. Food was delivered three times a day and although there was no choice it was always edible. I used the supermarket next door to order tonic water etc by telephone and paid on delivery by contactless card. I could easily have ordered by app from restaurants etc but having spent the previous week all inclusive I decided to eat sensibly!! The room was comfortable and nicely decorated with a great power shower. I would say it would be a great base for people who wanted a convenient base from which to explore Madeira not somewhere to stay for hours although the pool looked nice. Thankyou to all the staff who were always helpful.

Unfortunately I tested positive on arrival at Maderia Hotel. We stayed in Jardin Ajuda for the first 3 nights. Then got told we have to move to a Isolation Hotel! My first thoughts where devastation, Ive heard so many bad experiences for those who have to stay in a Isolation hotel in the UK. The experience of being picked up by The Covid19 Team was very serious, had to leave Jardin through the backdoor and entered a van with these two fellas in top to bottom PPE was very OTT. We arrived at Pestana Ocean Studios and was told we would be staying in the bottom floor..! I thought basement 😩 But then our room door opened and I was like 😍 we had an amazing room with a porch table and chairs outside, swimming pool but no swimming allowed. Brilliant shower! USB ports next to the bed, Water & Fruit on arrival then dinner came. Everyday there was a knock on the door with Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Food was amazing and different everyday. We had access to a Supermarket next door via Wtsap. Staff where excellent even though we Didnt have much face to face contact. Whatever we needed was never too much for them just a phone call away and minutes later we would get a knock on the door. Excellent WIFI throughout glad we bought our Fire stick Disney Plus & Netflix was brilliant for us all after Dinner. We got dressed for the evenings and made the most of out time in Funchal. Would like to thank the Maderia Government for looking after their guests. It was an experience we did not want to experience unfortunately but we made the most

Do be aware that this is the only government quarantine hotel on the island if you have the misfortune to test covid positive. The availability is blocked out as unavailable until next year. To note should you ever want to stay here that rooms ending in 001-005 do actually have a tiny balcony overlooking the back of the hotel toward the distant sea and greenery .Other wise you will end up either on the side road or right on to the main thoroughfare with traffic, buses etc. So noisy . probably all night once the curfew is lifted. Also some of the rooms only have a Juliette balcony. If you want basic and budget then this is it. Tiny kitchen area, microwave, fridge kettle .no hob. The beds are comfortable but that is the only plus point.

We werevmoved to this hotel for our covid quarantinne and were tld this is a 4* property. While i cannot comment on the hotel grounds/food or service i can do that for the room. It is advertised as having a kitchenette -this is an overstatement, there is a small fridge, sink and a microwave so if like I, you prepare your food from scratch not just reheating it, you will not find it sufficient and for longer stay, it is not going to be the best solution. The bed is large and the materace comfortable but there is a cover on it, feels like plastic, and that is radiating the heat making you sweat. The bedding is not of the best quality, the pillows are very difficult to get them to the normal pillow shape after a few days sleeping on them and have similar plastic cover on them. Our room looks different than the room on the pictures. On the picture there is nice furniture, colorful pillows. All we have is the garden set and the 'setee' which is a covered spare bed. The choice of colours is a very indyvidual thing and everybodys taste is different, but I was very surprised to find out that the hotel is new. The wallpaper in the kitchenette area is kind of orange and paint in the rest of room is light blue. Im not against this colour combination but this particular one, in my opinion, gives the room already a dated feel not the fancy designer one as I think was planned. The bathroom is comfortable, you can see it was newly fitted. Nothing to complain. Our room is facing I think the casino building and is close to the intersection. As a result is extremly noisy almost 24/7. If you want on your holiday to keep the balcony door open make sure you ask for the room on the other side of the building, maybe it is better. Our room has quite a nice view- we see the mountains(and intersection :))but for the rooms further down they can only see the casino building. We do like travelling and as we dont have big budget and prefer to spend as much time outside getting to know and experience the location. If you are looking for hotel to basically spend the night, this could be an option for you but dont get fooled by the 4* rating. This hotel is a 3 and not a 3+. It reminds me of a Travelodge- a budget chain UK. As mentioned i dont think there is anything bad in the 3*but this hotel is not a 4 star and management pictures differ from the reality.

Quiet place with access to Pestana Casino park hotel amenities with the same stable wifi internet, friendly staff, easy access to/from airport (bus stop nearby). Walk to city center about 20 mins, to closest park less than 5 mins, to boardwalk 10 mins.
