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 and could do with a refresh, but it was

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 room had a great view of the banana

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 class. We wanted a quiet hotel,

Weird lumpy old pillows, tiny pool, sauna far away from pool and have to request it switched on half hour before use plus can't use after 5pm. Attitude of many (not all) staff-very off-hand. Bar not open with no reason given, asked for a local cocktail which they didn't serve

i can't answer regarding the depth of the pool because we didn't use it but I'm sure If you ask the hotel they will answer. All bedrooms, as far as I know, have a balcony where you can smoke.

Dear Amanda, 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.
