2-12 June 2008. Very clean and spacious 1 room apartment; if you are with 2 you don't really need the 2 room apartment. We stayed in apartment 6 with a wonderful view of the harbour. The location is nice and quiet as soon as you walk in to the quinta. To the old city centre of Funchal is a 15 minute walk. You can take bus 32 on your way back. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool. Because the quinta is higher it gets clouded sooner than when you're below so there may be less sunbathing at the pool but that's personal. Renting a car at the reception was fine. Do have dinner in the old town at Tapassol. Affordable, good and friendly service. As for the building activities: we didn't look forward to that but it really didn't bother us much, you see the crane but there's no excessive noise hindrance. No need to stay away on that account.
