    We can see these not quite natural pools from our hotel and when we pop to the supermarket, catch a bus or visit Forum Madeira. They looked very inviting. So, having talked about it for a week, we fin...  more »

    Wonderful swimming pools, with great structure. Kids until the age of 10 years old, above all €2. Water with great temperature. Venta bit. We love!

    We passed this place on a walk from Camara Do Lobos to Praia Formosa and decided to go back (using the Yellow Bus!) for a day of kicking back and maybe a swim. It's set in an area of natural rock pool...  more »

  • Friendly staff. Only stopped for a coffee break while walking along the coast. Stunning views and the natural pools created below for swimming looked great.
  • Even if you don't eat there, go and check their work in building and maintaining those pools. They certainly put a great effort on them.
  • Rude and rushing personnel, we were waiting almost 20 minutes to be properly seated, in the meantime we were totally ignored by all staff members, even though we were greeting them multiple times and wanted to start a conversation. After first 7 minutes we were overtook by another family, but as it looked they were there before us, also waiting, so it was all right. But again, nobody said anything. The restaurant was not even full, just the top part, but waitresses were running uncoordinated in sweat like they had been overbooked. As we were finally seated, we were so stressed out that we weren't even hungry anymore, definitely not for this restaurant. Also prices were unaccountably high - compared with other higher end restaurants. Not recommended, but very nice surroundings. At least take a nice walk, but make sure you come full.
  • The most beautiful place for have a nice dinner. Very good food and very friendly.
  • Relaxing and fun at the same time

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.
