If you are a fan of mid century design. This is the place for you. With gorgeous Oscar Niemeyer architecture. The breakfast dining room is a work of art in itself. Also much of the original design remains in the furnishings. Close to the centre of Funcial with 100s of cafe, and bars a short walk down the hill. The Aerobus is 5euro and drops off and picks up a 3 minute walk away. The 113(e) bus is cheaper but drops you 10 minute walk up the hill. Not good with cases. Taxi is around 30euro. Tea coffee in the room is at request. Water/mini fridge in room. Spectacular view at the pool for instagram photos. Nice indoor pool facilities. Lots of places to sit and enjoy a cocktail in the evening with great staff. Bedrooms need to have a freshen up soon, as looking just a little tired in places. I wouldn't stay anywhere else but this big beauty.
