quiet hotel in a beautiful area

quiet hotel in a beautiful area about three hundred meters from the sea (the island of Madeira has all uphill and downhill roads) where it begins a beautiful pedestrian promenade of up to Camara de Lobos, the center of Funchal is located about 2 kilometers, the staff is very kind, breakfast is always the same every day, dinner changes every night. in the evening there is always the show.

The best thing about my stay was...

Review of Hotel Estrelicia Funchal

A comfortable, friendly hotel. The accommodation was adequate and clean. The facilities were good There was an indoor pool and entertainment in the evening The food was fairly good and there was plenty of it. We found the walk up the hill to reach the hotel, quite tiring at the end of the day. Overall good value for money

The best thing about my stay was...

The friendly and helpful staff
6/10 Good

Maderia in June 2011

Just come back from 2 weeks in Madeira, Hotel on hill ( but so are most others) Rooms o.k & we went B&B which was quiet good,if a bit boring after 2 weeks. Nice size Breakfast & Dining room. The Pool area is o.k the main downside is no balcony to the rooms. All the rest of the Dorisol Hotels have balconies. If you are eating out just on the right from the hotel is La Bamba the food here is good ( best Steak & Salmon had for a long while, if your in to Pasta Casa italia straight down the hill from the hotel towards the sea is brilliant ate there 9 times ( and my wife is the fussiest person about food, so if she praises it it's good.

The best thing about my stay was...

Has to be the weather, not a cloud the whole time, unknown in Madeira.

Expected more

Do not expect much ...The hotel is in need of renovation. The food is quite poor. The road up to the hotel is a breath-taking hill... but staff are friendly and helpful
