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.

managed to see one garden. On my free day in Funchal after returning from
hiking on the island I took the bus up to the Madeira Botanic Garden, a more
traditional botanic garden with more of a focus of displaying a large variety
of different kinds ...
... 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 ...
... br> restaurant to try out a Madeiran specialty called Gaiado, a small tunalike fish
that’s dried and then served in strips with onion, tomato, and vinaigrette. The
flavor is intensely fishy, which I quite like, but not super salty like
The restaurant owner then invited us to his home wine cellar
for generous tastes of his 10-year aged Madeira wine. Madeira is fortified and generally
sweet and drunk abroad as a dessert wine, ...
