Apartamentos Turisticos Atlantida are exceptionally well located in the heart of Funchal right next to the lovely Municipal Garden with its exotic tropical flora in bloom all year round. The centre of Funchal is some 50 m away and features restaurants tourist attractions and shops. The cathedral is a 5-minute walk from the accommodation whilst the sea can be reached in 10 minutes on foot. Funchal Airport is 20 km from the apartment complex. The self-catering units have been carefully decorated in warm light colors and the finest materials have been used in the construction. The kitchenettes are equipped with a fridge a microwave a hob a dishwasher and the basic equipment needed to prepare cook and eat meals in the privacy of the accommodation. This is a brand new elegant modern and luxurious self-catering holiday apartment hotel. Many tourists who enjoy visiting Madeira relish the freedom of self-catering apartments and of not being confined to a hotel's restrictions and meals. At the same time it is very pleasant to come and go as one pleases to feel the cosiness of a home in the spacious comfort of an elegantly decorated apartment complete with its own basic cooking facilities. There is a golf course located within 4 km of the apartment hotel.
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The location was excellent, exactly where we wanted. The room was comfortable and clean as was the rest of the hotel
For such a good hotel the equipment within the room was rather limited
The location of the hotel was great. It was right in the centre of Funchal.
The kitchen could have been better equipped
The location is excellent close to Shopping Mall, Municipal Gardens, restaurants and other tourist attractions.
Great location. Apartment comfortable and clean. About 20 metres from a large supermarket and a great bakery which are very reasonably priced.
Although there was a reasonable choice of food for breakfast, we felt the amounts very limited and as the apartment was equipped with a toaster it was hardly worthwhile going down in the morning. Only received clean teatowel 3 days in the 7 day stay were left without anything for the rest of the stay. Do advise visitors to take their own dishcloth and washing up liquid.
Big plus: The very friendly and helpful staff !!! The hotel is situated in the "heart" of old Funchal and offers perfect opportunities for shopping, sightseeing and going out: In front of the hotel you find a shopping centre that contains e.g. a supermarket, a bakery (open even on sundays) etc. You find a fruit vendor 1 min. from the hotel that offers fresh Madeira fruits at sensational prices. Our room was well equipped with a nicely styled bathroom, air cond., a double bed, a small kitchenette and some armchairs. Furthermore, we had a small flatscreen TV mounted at the wall (turnable to kitchenette or bedroom). We found it very nice to have a free internet access via LAN (cable was even supplied by hotel). Big plus, too: hotel parking gar
In general, cleanliness was very good, except the kitchenette that showed some minor deficits (e.g. some "spots" on dishes and other kitchen tools). In our opinion, the kitchenette is only usable if you just plan to prepare your own breakfast - it does not supply you with enough tools and accessories to cook entire meals. The only further negative aspect were the mattresses: too hard and too worn-out. One of them was exchanged immediately by the staff after we had complained about it, but still they were not very comfortable.
Very clean, comfortable and well equipped room. Good central location close to Municipal Gardens, Shopping Centre, Taxis and Buses
Great location in Funchal near to the town centre and marina. Try to get a room with a balcony as they have the better view and are quieter. Staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable. Dolce Vita shopping centre, supermarket, bread shop and taxi rank 2 minutes walk away, marina and promenade with shops and restaurants 5 minutes walk - all ideal for my elderly mother. Being in the town meant that we didn't have to have a taxi every time we went out of the hotel. I would consider staying here again.
The location was very central to the Funchal historic centre and waterfront. The apartment itself was very spacious- we had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as two balsony/decks. Kitchen fine for light meals if desired. Front desk was friendly and approachable. I would highly recommend these apartments.
Lack of dish/dishwasher detergent and dishclothes. Could have used additional drinking glasses as all were brandy snifters.
Friendliness of staff, cleanliness of room, very comfortable apartment, good location,
Can't really comment on services and facilities as we didn't make use any of the services or facilities - staff were always friendly and were more than happy for us to leave our case at the hotel after we checked out until it was time for us to catch the bus back to the airport.
quiet room location, kitchen great facilities
air con could have been cooler - could not get temp to 21c
