Stayed at hotel for eight nights, apartment was big and clean and offered view of the park. Excellent location!
Spacious flat with character and privacy Central location, we didn't need a hire car all week Great restaurants nearby and marina, buses etc. Rita at Blandy's was fantastic - so helpful before and during the stay and just 2 doors down to us! Thought our garden view apartments would be ground floor they are in fact all 1st or 2nd floor (ours was 1st)
AC unit in main bed rattled so much we couldn't use it - noisy Main bedroom door wouldn't shut without being locked - don't like locking doors with my children in another room Kitchen needs a flip top or foot pedal bin - had to keep touching the lid to put things in the bin Cable channels on the TV - the only English speaking children's programmes were on a pay per view Lovely wooden floors but upstairs neighbours children were running about alot and rather noisy
Very large and spacious elegant appartment. Location is absolutely as central as it gets. Modern TV and wifi, AC in both bedroom and livingroom. Everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Floor was creaking quite a bit, but none of the neighbours complained that they could hear it :-)
Location - a few hundred meters from cathedral. Staff - extremely helpful, Rita will make your day sunny, even if it's raining. Apartments renovated with nice touch, allowing the old wooden floors to bring out the historic scent. Extremely good value for money.
Excellent location in Funchal old town, walking distance to all the main sights. Big bright windows overlooking the beautiful municipal gardens and the ocean. Bottle of Madeira wine and fruit left in apartment for arrival.
Noise at night from loud music at The Ritz café as well as from other restaurants in the area. Very difficult to drive in Funchal and find the apartments as well as the underground parking spot. Not having the staff meet you upon arrival is disappointing. Apartment was lacking blankets and towels for all guests when we arrived. Although there is a laundry machine provided, there is not hangers, or a clothes line to dry clothes. Not having a place to stop the car and unload luggage upon arrival is stressful as the apartment in located on a tiny busy one way street. Staff are a bit indifferent to simple requests and are not the most helpful when addressing issues. Horrible smell came from the washroom for the entire time of stay. No lift and many stairs, so difficult for older people to access apartments.
Extremely central Very well equipped Good air conditioning system Extremely spacious No keys needed, so, no worries Very comfortable beds
There was nothing not to like!
Central location, nice and spacious. Free parking.
Just one bathroom (no separate toilet), no balcony. Slightly noisy in evenings.
We had apartments for 6 people, that was huge! The receptionist (Rita) was adorable! Also we were suprised by "welcome kit": fruits and Madeira wine. Apartments are in madeira wine museum, in the center of Funchal, has parking, are fully furnished. I recommend it for everyone!
Location, space and general decoration.
Kitchen facilities (equipment), cooker kept tripping the electrical circuit breaker, only one power socket over cooker (!) for coffee machine, toaster, kettle etc. Hall light did not work.
The location is great. The apartment is huge. Our third visit to Madeira we had a great time fantastic scenery, friendly people, we' ll definitely be returning
Nothing to dislike
A Perfect location for those who want to stay at the city center. Perfect view. High quality of apartment, comfortable, clean and charismatic.
Some noise from streets.
The apartment was beautiful, large, clean and comfortable. Location is the best in Funchal.
You could easily hear all sounds and noise coming from other apartments (even talk) and from the bar nearby. There is no safety deposit box.
Very large comfortable apartment great view of gardens. Good wifi excellent location
On second floor no lift ok for me but my mother struggled
Great location and lovely apartment. Many thanks to Rita for all the help during the stay (particularly for the iron!).
Fantastic, spacious apartment, old house but nicely renovated and modernized, nice wooden floors. Great location in Funchal's centre, facing a park with trees and flowers. Modern and well-equipped kitchen, even a wasking machine for clothing! Except for the noise at night (see below), we really enjoyed it!
Major issue: The music from the Ritz Café nearby is very audible, even with closed windows. It was nice music (guitars) in the afternoon and evening, but nasty loud noise "music" one of the nights (at 3 am!!). Minor issue: would have been nice to be provided with detergent to use the clothes washer.
The flat itself (Verdelho on the top floor) is beautifully decorated and very spacious on 3 floors within the flat plus a roof terrace. We enjoyed the views, the living room, the great kitchen and the 2 bathrooms. Rita was very welcoming and helpful.
There is a nightclub nearby called the Theatre bar which plays music until 4 or 5 in the morning on weekends and holidays - not the fault of the people letting the apartment but something the local tourist office might like to look into!
Wooden floors made it very noisy and there was practically no sound insulation from the neighbours above or from the staircase. It was a shame that there was only one bathroom in the flat, even th
Central location with great views over the park; spacious, well equipped and full of character. A special find!
Difficulty in finding the apartment as there are two streets in the area with exactly the same name! Although there were five in our group, there was initially only bedding and towels for four and this took a few days to sort. Very noisy event at the nearby theatre kept us awake on the first night.
Everything was great: the staff, the location and apartment.
Location was perfect
Location Staff very kind Huge appartment
Everything was fine and clean. Excellent value for money. When we arrived there was bottle of madeira wine, water and fruits as complimentary.
We stayed in the Verdelho Apartment and this was a wonderful place to stay. It is very spacious with great views - the park on one side, the Ocean on the second, the mountain and cathedral and city on the third. It has everything you need including fully equipped Kitchen, washing machine. And the balcony is great for sitting there and enjoying the view, and for drying clothes. Also, the location is great, everything you might need is nearby -- supermarket, bakery, restaurants, churches, busses within the city and to other places, churches etc. And everything for an incredibly good price. I only hope that the positive reviews don't lead to large increases in price.
Everything was excellent.
The restoration of the old building was very nice along with the amount of space it provided. Location was excellent. Well taken care of and nicely presented.
The staff did not explain anything in the apartment. When we arrived we were supposed to have a private parking but had no access to the garage. One night we wanted to leave at night and could not enter the garage, it was locked. They never explained any small details on how things worked. Did not know how to use the washing machine. When staying at the Vine Hotel a week prior, everything was explained in much detail.
