A brilliant place definitely will go again, suitable for young and older clientele providing you can walk well enough as it's very steep in parts, with picturesque beautiful gardens, wonderful views, great restaurants.<br /> <br /> Loved the old buildings like the Ritz, Golden Gate restaurant. The newer area by the Lido great for families.

Didn't stay in the centre of Funchal; our hotel was at least 20 minutes outside. Hotel provided transport. Only went in twice because I have been three times previously. It's not your typical Spanish/Greek resort. No English pubs, etc.

The hotel is right near the cable car to Monte and the bus terminal where you can get a bus to anywhere. There are some lovely places to visit. Blandys wine lodge is a good place to visit. They do tours and tastings. The refurbishment of the town is almost finished after the devastating floods from a few years ago. Madeira is well worth a visit.

Absolutely, there is lots to do from toboggan rides, to cable car rides, walks and visits to botanical gardens and boat trips. In the evening there are some lovely classy bars to visit along with free classical concerts at certain times of year, we were lucky enough to see one of these. The manners and hospitality of the Portuguese people on Madeira is excellent and they made you feel really welcome and privileged to have visited Madeira.

Lots to see and do in Funchal. The cable car trip from Funchal to Monte is well worth the money, the gardens at Monte are absolutely beautiful. There are many coach tours for one to sample and many taxis available on every street. Although there was a lot of hustle and bustle in the city which was close to the Marina, whilst sat watching the boats it felt as though the city was miles away. Plenty of shops in which to spend your money. Many bars and restaurants to choose from.

Funchal town itself is a very nice town, with lots of shopping areas / markets. Could have nice long walks along the sea fronts. Black sands and very pebbly, not easy to walk on. Lots of activities there such as cable car, open busses for touring etc. Small island, but the internal is very hilly. Great place to see.

Funchal is a lovely resort. Busier than I expected but lovely gardens and flowers everywhere. Plenty of top quality restaurants, too many to count. Very easy to get around. Cable car rides excellent. Would recommend as a destination, not sure enough there for children and no beach but very cosmopolitan resort. Loved it.

As mentioned above, getting about was the main problem. Although the shuttle bus was reliable it finished fairly early in the evening so a taxi was the only way back to the hotel. Funchal was interesting and covered a wide range of interests. Although the locals appeared to be happy lying on the beach of large stones they were most uncomfortable and getting in and out of the sea was a painful experience! Advice - stick to the hotel pool and loungers.

Funchal has become a bit too commercialized in recent years but still has much to recommended it - the restaurants are numerous and mostly good or very good although some are overpriced. People are very friendly and helpful. The walking in around Funchal is great as are the views and landscapes.

We used the local busses for transport they are quite frequent but packed. There was not a lot of information about where to purchase weekly or other types of ticket but you can pay for single journeys on the bus. Well worth doing as a part of your holiday is the chair lift and sledge ride, we thought good value. <br /> <br />

Great place for a relaxing stay. There are loads of good restaurants and don't be afraid to go off the tourist routes and find the little back streets. There are some great little cafes serving honest food and drink at half the cost of the seafront ones. This is a safe place to holiday with no drunken mobs and the island has some stunning areas to explore.

Very clean resort. Always felt safe when walking around. Resort is geared up for tourists but there are plenty of smaller side streets to wander around. A visit to the gardens at the top of the cable car is a must if you like flowers etc.<br />
