Where I stayed
Encosta Cabo Girao
The complex is well terraced with apartments blocks and villas overlooking the reception and restaurant and pool complex. All apartments have sea views to the South and we can watch the cruise ships come into Funchal Harbour and the catamarans, sailings ships and fishing boats go out far below us.
We found all the facilities to be of 5star quality with efficient and friendly staff.
The restaurant serves a range of excellent a la carte dishes albeit a bit on the expensive side. We enjoyed an excellent New Year's Eve Banquet; very good buffet and sampled the Madeiran traditional Kebab skewers all very good
Leisure facilities include an all weather bowls green where Colin beat Kay mercilessly 13 to 5 Two tennis courts which is rare in Madeira as there aren't many flat places to put one!. Heated indoor and outdoor pools, spa, sauna and steam room. Also a beauty salon for those who can afford to pamper themselves.
We spent our last day here just enjoying the sunshine and relaxing in and by the pool and spa facilitites. We really have enjoyed our stay here.
