Hotel Escola is attached to the Catering College and Hospitality school - so it's a bit different. It's small, but very nicely done. I had a double room with a lovely balcony and super view out to sea. The room was a little bit tired...More
Spent a week at this hotel and had a great time. It is very quiet, but staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to be helpful.
Highlights were eating the very sumptuous breakfast on the terrace enjoying the lovely view. Our...More
Hotel is situated on the outskirts of Funchal in a quiet area. The centre of the city is only a short bus ride away. Food is excellent and rooms basic but very clean. Not a lot to do in the hotel itself.
My husband and I have just returned from a week at the hotel in Funchal. Can't recommend it highly enough - the staff are so helpful; rooms are spotless and roomy (the sea view is definitely worth having!); the food in this restaurant is first...More

You will find the aerobus right outside the terminal. The airport is quite small so you cant't miss it. The stop for this hotel is no. 23 but... the bus doesn't stop anywhere near! In fact, we had to climb quite a steep road, carrying our suitcases, and were knackered by the time we arrived. We had to take several breaks during the climb. I suggest you take the bus and ask the driver to drop you off and the Forum Mall (I think it is stop 22) where there are always lots of taxis. From there you take a cab right to the door of the hotel. I think this short ride won't cost more than 5 euros.
I hope this was helpful, have a great vacation. We loved this hotel.
