We love Riu hotels because the standard is always the same wherever you go. This hotel was pleasant and small which we very much enjoyed. It was a way out from Funchal and we aren't into bussing in so we hired mountain bikes or got taxis. This place is HILLY and not for the faint hearted cyclists. We did have...

The rooms were comfortable but nothing special. No tea making facility in the room. Wifi worked well in the room and was included in the cost of the holiday. Limited number of drinks in all inclusive deal, food mediocre, after a week I was ready to eat out!

We spent a week at this all inclusive hotel in November. It's a very well run hotel, with efficient and polite staff and exceptional cleaning and maintenance standards. The location is isolated but very pretty. It is set on cliffs looking out to sea. We loved sitting on our balcony watching the cruise ships pass by!! I would say that...

Like a lot of the other reviews, I would agree that the staff are excellent, the hotel is lovely and kept spotless. The food in the main restaurant was varied and very good, however the Brazilian themed restaurant/pool bar was poor and to be avoided. The all inclusive package was fantastic, very good range of drinks with a lot if...

My wife and I (and friends) visited the hotel in early December- our third consecutive visit at this time of year. Having done an extensive review two years ago- and a shorter one (mainly ‘tips for readers’) last year, I shall do a short recap and comment on other aspects of this holiday. Thomson Holidays. Booking. Sadly, Thomson Holidays have...
