A lovely break

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well equipped and along with the pool area and communal area is kept to a high standard.

I didn't actually use the pool or bar area but it seemed well received by other guests.

There is a wide variety of maps/information in the apartment, handy for inspiration if needed.

The tunnel at the end of the beach was helpful to take you to a selection of local restaurants however the walk in to Funchal itself is completely manageable with comfy shoes and offers pleasant views with many bars and restaurants along the way.

The local supermarket that we used was more than what we needed, only a couple of minutes drive away.

We hired a car from the airport which was a real bonus and very reasonably priced as we were able to explore the rest of Madeira at our own leisure, some of the scenery is breath taking. I would advise to do the same if you can.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for a week but could have stayed longer! The apartment is comfortable & spacious. It also has a lovely balcony which overlooks the swimming pool & the Atlantic.

There is a comfortable 3 piece suite as well as a table with 4 chairs inside but to be perfectly honest we spent majority of our time on the balcony as there is a table with 4 chairs & 2 loungers, perfect for meal times & just relaxing watching the waves crashing on the beach.

There is washing machine in the kitchen with an airer on the balcony so washing is no problem. It was so nice coming back from our holiday knowing that we didn't have too much washing to do!

WiFi also in the apartment too which is really handy & the staff at reception are really friendly and helpful.

Defiantly worth a visit!

The property was peaceful, cozy and clean. The scenery was lovely, as well as the service. Expectations were met and we are happy to come again. Probably for two months next spring.

Überragende Aussicht - Appartment in schlechtem Zustand

  • 1 of 5

Reisezeitraum: Juli 2017 (1 Woche)

+ Tolle Aussicht, großer Balkon, Gemeinschaftspool in gutem Zustand

- - - der Gesamtzustand des Appartments wäre für uns bei längerem Aufenthalt inakzeptabel gewesen. Es ist, wie auch das Gebäude, welches früher einmal ein Hotel war, in einem sehr runtergekommenen Zustand, insbesondere Dusche sowie Fliesen in beiden Bädern sind mit Schimmel übersät. Hinter beiden Schlafzimmerfenstern befinden sich Gerümpelkammern, die zugemüllt sind, weshalb wir auf das Lüften größtenteils verzichtet haben.

Achtung: Atlantic Gardens gibt es nicht! D.h. die Adresse wurde falsch übermittelt, was dazu geführt hat, dass wir bis in die späte Nacht auf der Suche nach der richtigen Appartmentadresse waren. Unter der Telefonnummer, die der Vermieter angab, war niemand zu erreichen (gibt direkt ein gutes Gefühl wenn man privat bucht). Dank des hilfsbereiten Nachtportiers in einem benachbarten Hotel konnten wir das Appartment nach fast zweistündiger Suche finden. Rückerstattung der Kaution wurde nur auf Anfrage vorgenommen.

Fazit: Dieses Appartment würden wir nicht mehr buchen.
