    Location 6.64 /10

    In the hotel zone of Funchal, 1.2 miles away from downtown and 14 miles away from the airport. Expect a 10 minute ride to get downtown and 30 minutes to reach the airport.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    Of the 106 rooms of the Buganvilia, 60 overlook the swimming pool. The others overlook the street and the distant sea. If you don't like the noise, ask to be housed on the swimming pool side. You should know however that you cannot get away from the tile floors that have a tendency to ring out. As for the amenities, the rooms are pretty spacious, with tables and pine chairs. Integrated into a closet, the kitchenette has a refrigerator, hotplates and tableware. The satellite TV offers 21 channels and a direct telephone line for international calls. In return, there is no air-conditioning. To overcome this inconvenience, there is a small balcony.. It has a table and two plastic chairs. In the bathroom, there is a bathtub and hair-dryer.

    Overview 4.70 /10

    Built in 1971 and renovated in 2000, the Buganvilia occupies a tower of 11 levels which would not be inappropriate for a Parisian suburb. But if you disregard this detail of the architecture, the inside decoration is rather welcoming. The marble floor in the reception area leads to a lounge area with nice rattan sofas. Behind the building, the rectangular pool of 100 m² is surrounded by a solarium covered by synthetic carpet. We would have prefered more natural greenery, but you have to be happy with the use of the deckchairs and sunshades available. Be aware of the fact that the bath towels are not supplied. The complex shares all facilities - you have access to a sauna, a tennis court and a games room, including a billiard and a football table. A schedule of activites is also shared. There are painting classes and Portuguese classes, aerobics sessions, folklore and dancing shows.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The Buganvilia restaurant is open for all three meals. A buffet is served for breakfast. Lunch and dinner are served a la carte. The menu focuses mainly on classic international cuisine, with a few specialities of the island: veal Marsala, minestrone or Madeiran tuna. Omelets, pastas and salads are also available for those who like to eat lightly. As for the atmosphere, there is no terrace and the muffled character of the decoration ( carpetted floor, curtains and velvet under-tableclothes) might seem a little stuffy for some. Allow 15 euros for a dish.

    To know

    The Bouganvilia belongs to a group complex of three hotels, with the Estrelicia and the Mimosa. Leisure and activities like tennis are shared . In return, each establishment has its own swimming pool, leisure areas and appointed restaurants.
    High towers located one behind the other on the hills overlooking the hotel zone of Funchal, the Buganvilia, the Estrelicia and the Mimosa overlook the other side of the bay, but they are still located 400 m from the sea. Here you can find the Lido, the ''beach'' of Madeira. This seaside complex offers lots of swimming pools, solariums and access to the sea, in the form of ladders installed between the rocks. Don't expect to see sand: because there is none However, deckchairs, mattresses, sunshades and a few non-motorised water sports are available here for extra fees.
    For those who want to go to downtown Funchal, a free shuttle operates 9 times per day, from 9 am to 5:30 pm.

      Located in the Funchal hotel area, the Girassol is suitable for families; it is near to the sea and also several shops. However, this location evidently means that there will be noise.

Among all the whispering and murmuring, there is a certain rush to take your time to take your time... Between the sound of the waves, the clattering of porcelain and the sound of heels on the tiled floor, anything can happen in these bygone surroundings where, nevertheless, nothing is happening. 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.
