Looking for a hotel in Funchal, with a rooftop pool surrounded by a large solarium with sea views, and a bar? You've found it! There's nothing better than taking a dip, then enjoying the view with a good martini in your hand. The Four Views Monumental Hotel offers rooms and apartments. The latter are huge. Mine had tables outside on the terrace, as well as a sofa bed, kitchen, and two huge TV screens.
The Vine Hotel is next level wonderful. Its not surprising that in 2013, it was named World's Leading Design Hotel. Its 79 rooms are tastefully furnished, each in its own way. I stayed in 202, with a huge massage waterfall, shower, and bath. The beds are very large and comfortable, with lights operated from them by an electrical panel, like the blinds. But, apart from the rooms, The Vine offers a stunning rooftop pool overlooking Funchal. In fact, it has two pools, one normal, and one with whirlpool jets. The latter is ideal for sunset dipped to 24 degrees. The hotel also has a small, closed spa (enough to relax for a while), gym, dining area, and separate restaurant. If money is no object, treat yourself by staying in the historic center of Madeira. It's so good, you won't want to leave to go sightseeing.

The Quinta do Monte is a five star hotel set in a historic manor surrounded by extensive gardens in the picturesque village of Monte.

I loved the precious old wooden floors and colonial decor.

This is a wonderful hotel. It's not missing a single detail. Best: I did not hear any noise and we were there in the middle of August. If you are going to the island of Madeira to rest, this is one of the most recommended options. Although the room is expensive, if you go for the typical package holiday it's not so burdensome. The tour operator I chose was Abreu and it went very well. Just do not think you'll be on the beach, because there you can only see the sea. The pool and sunbeds are fine, but in the middle of the Atlantic the sun burns you while you aren't looking ...
On a hillside, halfway between Calheta beach and the town of Loreto, stands the Marisol apartments. This establishment is Spectacular. You can't even fully understand until you see it. We were served by friendly Dutch people that showed us around the house. You begin to imagine what will be the next day's breakfast. The bottle of wine on the table was a clear indication that we were welcome. We corresponded, scrupulously respecting the rules. The apartment was very quiet. You can get a better idea from the photos. One night, a little further up the hill, we saw rockets and listened to music. They came from Loreto and there we went ... amazing! A typical small town party. Authentic. Check out Loreto-Madeira.
Villa Echium is a "villa" of two floors in the center of Garajau, a dentist (I think Norwegian)rents out, the whole or floors. Prices are on their website and are downright cheap, considering that it features large terrace, garden, fully furnished inside and the constant attention of Filomena. She comes in the morning, makes the beds, cleans ... and goes. She is a closed Madeiran and difficult to understand on the phone, but I manage. Good woman. The sunrises are spectacular and you can enjoy while you eat breakfast. If I tell you 500 meters, there is a tiny little beach which is accessible by a cable car, there's a gorgeous bar and not many people go, how do you stay? ... Come on, follow me to Playa Garajau
It wasn't perhaps the hotel we expected, a typical beach hotel for foreigners, as we say here, with entertainment ..... We chose it for the situation on the island, to visit the central eastern side of the island. But well, not bad, a 4 star hotel, large acceptable rooms, a good buffet and service, with free parking. It is located in a town that does not have much nightlife, or at least we did not find it. Right on the edge of the beach, a beach reclaimed or artificial, but it was nice. Just behind there was a fairly large supermarket, which served to provide us with things for for tours on the island. Although I must say that you can eat well for less eating traditional food. If you keep on to the marina, next door there is a small restaurant across the road, although at first it doesn't grab your attention, you can eat really well here, good value and very friendly. Walk from the port also to different places with brand names international chains. Taste the typical island beers, they are good.
