To arrive to the hotel drive along the Via Rápida (motorway) in direction of Funchal, and take exit nº 12. Came down into town, passing by the Mercedes then stand on always on your right across the traffic lights by the Fire Station also across the traffic lights next to a tunnel. |The next set of traffic lights is on a main street. Unfortunately, is not possible turn left, so guests have to carry on ahead for a short distance until the next set of traffic lights and turn left across a small bridge and then left again to go back on yourself. Change to the right hand lane and take the right filter (turn right) at the traffic lights. Approximately 80 meters along guests come to a roundabout, go right around it and take the second exit. On the top of the road it's the hotel, number 53.
