This 4-star hotel is situated high up on a cliff top overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the city of Funchal. Ocean Gardens has great facilities, so you can sit back and relax, including a swimming pool equipped with sun loungers. The hotel also has gardens, so tranquility is at the forefront here.
The hotel offers a buffet breakfast as well as a great churrascaria restaurant which serves steak and other grilled meats in typical Portuguese fashion. There is also a bar on-site, where you can enjoy the panoramic hill-top views from up above, as well as a drink or two. If you fancy a bit of competition, you can play a game of billiards and then wind down in the pool or even take a relaxing walk through the hotel’s gardens. These lavish gardens also surround the hotel sauna, solarium and relaxation area where you can indulge in treatments, such as massages. The hotel’s open-air terrace also allows for breath-taking views of the sea and surrounding city.
The hotel is only a 5-minute drive from the city centre of Funchal and is in easy reach of bus stops. The city has a lot to offer whether you like historical sites, restaurants and even more magnificent views. The Cathedral of Funchal is full of history as the late 15th century cathedral is one the few buildings which has remained intact since the colonization of Madeira. Funchal also has many museums you can visit, such as the Sacred Art Museum of Funchal and Museu CR7 which is great if you’re a Cristiano Ronaldo fan! If you prefer something more practical, São Gonçalo is a great area for those who love hiking and scenery.
