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.

Holiday to Madeira was a very spontanious choise. After spending a week doing research about Turkey, we decided to go to Madeira! lol
Done couple of hours of research, compared prices, checked activities and decided that this year Madeira's capital Funchal will be our destination. It just ticked so many spots: my boyfriend speaks …
... it is an interesting concept. Certainly picked up plenty of tips and will be putting them into action. We visited coastal villages along the south coast, and whilst they were pretty, the beaches were pretty ******. Very little sand, just black rocks ranging is size from golf balls to big Boulders. Definitely makes sunbathing interesting. Overall a fairly impressive destination, easy to see why they have over 1 million visitors a year, most from Great ...
... heavy on Asian-themed gardens and water features. There’s also a
small museum displaying Berardo’s extensive collection of contemporary
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 ...
... other side of the tunnel we had a lunch stop in warm sunshine before beginning our descent to three more lower levadas, a mix of walks down steep trails and steps to each lower level levada followed by very long nearly flat walks along the levadas. However much we descended, though, where we met our vans after 16 kilometers (almost 10 miles) of walking downhill, I suspect we still descended an additional 2,000 vertical feet further through the vineyards until we got to the ...
... served with an onion and tomato
sauce. The other dish I tried that’s on almost all menus in Madeira as an
appetizer is Limpets. What on earth is a Limpet? I had to Google it. They look
like small clams or scallops but are in fact Gastropods, small sea snails with
non-spiral shells – and they have the chewy consistency of snails. It’s one of
those things you have to try when it’s the specialty where you’re traveling.
