Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located in the Funchal hotel zone, the Alto Lido consists of one central building and a huge, imposing and unattractive tower running alongside the road. The complex does nevertheless have a good number of facilities. Built in the '80's, the second part was constructed as an addition to the first in order to increase the number of rooms. The majority of the guests are European.

    Location 6.49 /10

    In the Funchal hotel zone, 1.5 mi from the city centre and 15 mi from the airport. Allow 10 minutes to reach the city centre and 35 minutes to get to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The Alto Lido has 311 rooms. There are 118 standard rooms and 193 superior rooms. The rooms in the old section overlook the sea, while the newer rooms have a sideways-on view of the sea. Most of them are equipped with a kitchenette. Standard rooms have twin beds and a big balcony with plastic tables and chairs. The flowery decor helps brighten them up a bit. As far as facilities are concerned: there is air-conditioning, a television, safe (fee paying), mini-bar, international direct line and 24 hour room service. There are hospitality products and a hair-dryer in the bathroom.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The older part has six floors; the newer part four floors: the Alto Lido is an imposing hotel. The lobby has large bay windows allowing the light to shine in. It is nevertheless rather a sad space, devoid of charm. The reception area comprises a large wooden counter. Opposite this are several lounge alcoves with big orange and blue sofas. The outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by cushioned plastic deckchairs. The hotel charges a £8.80 deposit for use of its beach towels. A small pool is provided nearby for children to splash about in total safety. Inside, the fitness centre has a big swimming pool split into three lanes as well as a Jacuzzi, sauna, squash court and fitness room.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    There is a choice of three restaurants: one main restaurant, a second one for groups and a third beside the swimming pool, under a veranda. The first lays out a buffet at the centre of the room for the three daily meals from 7.30 am to 10.00 am, 12.30 pm to 2.00 pm, and finally 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm. Guests eat at dark wooden tables covered with red table cloths, set quite close to one other. It is easy to imagine this huge room getting unbearably noisy.

    To know

    The Alto Lido is in Madeira's hotel zone, on the road connecting the city centre to the Lido. Shops and a post office can be found very nearby. If you fancy a dip, the lido (beach) is 656 ft away. This seaside complex has a number of swimming pools, solariums and access points to the sea via ladders fixed between the rocks. Do not expect to see any sand: there is none. However, deckchairs, cushions, parasols and a few unmotorised water sports are provided for an extra fee.

      The Pestana Promenade is the latest acquisition of the hotel group that bears the same name, and is also one of its finest gems. This is a small and incredibly charming establishment, but you wouldn't expect it from the outside. At first sight, its architectural qualities seem a bit dubious. However, it does offer some true advantages, such as the sea view from all the accommodation units, regardless of their category. This is a very friendly establishment, where you'll immediately feel comfortable and will have no difficulty in getting into holiday mode...

      A hotel with an impressive view of the ocean, the Orca Praia is a place to be favoured for its nice environment and very attractive prices. One of the rare hotels in Madeira with a beach. Peppered with black sand, it is less attractive than the fine sand beaches. With an architecture shaped like a staircase, the hotel seems to go down straight towards the sea.

The Melia Madeira Mare is a place you come to rest and enjoy high quality facilities, not forgetting the attentive service!

      The Raga Hotel is set on the roadside, which is a real pity. Nevertheless, it is a modern establishment with very attractive contemporary decor. It is more popular with couples and younger people than large families. It was first built in 1974, but was subsequently totally rebuilt and reopened on December 14th, 2006.

Time, here, passes by somewhat hurriedly... The most recent work took place in 2006 and involved the swimming pool and the spa. The bedrooms, for their part, are also gradually being renovated.
