Ocean Buffet Restaurant
Main Hotel restaurant offering daily buffet breakfast and thematic buffet dinner every night
Sabor a Mar
Located on the sea level platform by the outdoor swimming pools, guests can find light meals all day long as well as menu a la carte for lunch and dinner
Mamma Mia by Giovanni
Italian a la carte restaurant with a wide variety of options for lunch and dinner as well as light meals all day long
Casa das Espetadas
Located 100 meters from the hotel specializes in traditional
wood fired cooking. The food is certainly worth travelling for,
and many people do. The attraction is a combination of a
popular meeting point and daily local music. Many try the
Islands favorite Poncha drink or locally brewed wine. Freshly
cooked garlic bread is definitely a draw, while local Madeira
produce is championed relentlessly - an impressive roster of
local suppliers is clearly visible. The menu is typically meaty,
featuring the favorite Espetada with Brazilian beef, local pork,
grilled with skill.
KOI Sushi Bar
The Koi Sushi Restaurant will have a cool and contemporary design with a choice of seating at the sushi bar, watching the sushi chef's or at tables throughout the restaurant. The Sushi's menu can be summed up in three words: fresh, simple and delicious. True sushi aficionados will appreciate the just-caught freshness found in the selection of fish and the outstanding quality of the restaurant's rice.

Although the hotel is well located with all the amenities it does not offer 5* service.
We booked a special offer of "free WiFi".This was acknowledged at check in however, we never received free wi fi to our room and for most of the stay it was
not even available in the lobby, where is was advertised as being free for all. When we complained we were advised that the room we booked did not include free wifi. The staff were generally pleasant although it did appear that the management was haphazard.
The decor is stark with long corridors with motion activated lighting meaning that you are always entering pitch black corridors which can be disconcerting.
The toilet pan was located too close to the wall which would make it very difficult for an overweight person to use and the toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall day 1 to end of holiday.
The swimming area is a monumental plain concrete slab with pools set symmetrically. Absolutely unappealing with the starkness of the concrete surface broken only by a myriad of expansion cracks filled with epoxy.
The hotel was however, worth the money despite the fact that much more should be expected of a 5* hotel.
