TravelPod Member ReviewsWindsor Hotel Funchal
We stayed in a 4* Windsor Hotel, located in the center of Funchal. That was the only advantage about the hotel :) the hotel is nothing like 4*, maybe it was 15 years ago, but certainly not today. Yes, i did check reviews and photos before booking, but on arrival it is nothing like in a photo. However, that did not spoil our holiday. As long as I have a bed to sleep, toilet and shower, I am happy. The breakfast was included, but we only tried it once. There are many better places to have your breakfast for few Euro.

Zimbabwean art, and the trails which snake downwards through the gardens are
lined with about 50 works of art in azulejos (glazed ceramic tiles) each
depicting scenes from a different era of Portuguese history, including one for
each Portuguese king. This helped ...
... The hike started out cold and windy but in bright sunshine near the start of one of the island's highest levadas. Although the walk probably has a different name, I don’t recall it and can’t find it on online maps, so I’m just calling it The Five Levadas Walk because it would take us along five levadas at different altitudes through the day.
We soon crossed back over the crest and descended into a north side valley that is the ...

I tried a couple more island specialties at dinner at the
hotel restaurant. Madeira’s most famous dish is a type of fish locally called
Espada that’s translated as Black Scabbard Fish in English. It lives at very
deep elevations and is especially ugly in appearance but tastes delicious. The
traditional preparation is either with local bananas or with a passion fruit
sauce but is also sometimes just ...
