Where to stay in Funchal

Funchal's array of accommodation presents an interesting conundrum, as many of the upscale hotels and budget options lie outside the city center. If you opt to stay there, you'll need transportation in order to best explore the city. Luxury hotels touting outdoor pools, spas, exclusive restaurants, and other amenities certainly dazzle with their locations along the coast.
