Dodgy Wifi. Business centre rather primitive...
Perfect location ! Bright and contemporary feeling.

A well-run, well-managed hotel. Service is consistent in all respects. Good food, great staff, & great facilities including an indoor pool that's actually warm enough to use! The sauna, steam rooms, Jacuzzi and gym are all excellent too.

The Wifi signal was weak. It was had to use laptop or Iphone.
The hotel is modern and clean. My room had a small balcony with a table and 02 chairs, flat tv and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was plentifully and well prepared.

- small rooms - a really small washbasin
- variety of food (breakfast & dinner) - very friendly staff - clean rooms - interesting location, as near to the airport (does not disturb!) - swimming pool (big and clean) - close to the sea - close to the promenade - near to the small town for a coffee & tea

No Wi-Fi in the rooms
Great location and lots to do at the hotel. Very close to the airport and right on the water.

If you don't like planes passing close, then the VG isn't for you. It is right at the end of the runway. However, Madeira airport is not busy.. The spa is rather expensive (€15 per person).
Lovely sea views, very clean and comfortable. We use regularly. Great staff and they will shuttle you to the airport.

No free parking in the garage, though free parking is available behind the hotel. This is open access, but seems to be mainly used by guests and staff. Free WiFi only in public area, in rooms cost extra.
We wanted to stay close to the airport before leaving on an early flight, so the location in Santa Cruz was perfect. The hotel sits just next to the cobble beach, which is nice for a dip or just watching the waves. Hotel is clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good but not fantastic. Bathing facilities are good, with indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi and sauna. Front staff are friendly and patiently attend to questions and requests.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast outstanding. The whole hotel was clean and shining

Where it let itself down was the lack of little extras, such as no tea / coffee facilities in the room, and only very basic options on the TV, i.e. other than news no Sky channels, but this did not spoil our holiday
Nearly all aspects of this hotel could be rated excellent, including accommodation, pool, staff, and meals, with overall superb "value for money", and close to the airport.

Nothing at all.
Although I'm passing fully as a man, I'm a trans guy and still travelling with my passport with female gender. The staff looked at my passport briefly (I can hear them wondering) but they were so respectful with the situation and treat me in my preferred gender. So discrete and respectful.

excellent breakfast, shuttle from airport, nice swimming pool, large rooms.

I was disappointed with two things and did let the front staff know. The first was the shuttle service to funchal. I have been to madeira before do I knew how far Santa Cruz was from funchal. I booked the hotel believing we had a free shuttle service to funchal 4 times a day. I was able to use this service only once. It was always full if you did not book 3 days in advance. I ended up spending money on taxis. The second thing I was disappointed with was the pool towel service. Many times we kept the wet towels hanging on our balcony as there was a line up in the lobby with people checking in and out and I was not going to wait to exchange my towels. I would recommend this service perhaps be done right at the pool area.
I liked the very friendly staff. The excellent breakfast. The extremely clean hotel and my room was always spotless everyday upon my return. I would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends travelling to madeira.

Wi fi free in reception areas. However it was necessary to continually log on every time which was time consuming and a nuisance.
The evening meal and breakfast were excellent.
