Vidamar Resort Madeira sea view

Booked this hotel after lots of research on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. It is a 5-star hotel about 20-30 minute walk from the old town of Funchal. The sea view room is spacious and has amazing views and you can really see the sea from any point in the room. The bed is massive and there are pillows in three sizes to choose from, which is a nice touch. There's a kettle and a small fridge in the room as well.

The breakfast is great, buffet dinner is a bit hit and miss, but the dine around program is awesome...
