"A view of Funchal is best."
"Most rooms have a sea view and balcony. Upper floor rooms at higher cost have additional benefits which appealed to us."
"The higher floors have the best rooms"
"Rooms on higher floor (6-9) with harbor and sea view are recommended. Wonderful at night time!"
"A room with seaview on the top floor is outstanding."
