The Fourviews Monumental Lido, formerly the Hotel Monumental Lido, is ideally located only one and a half miles from the centre of Funchal and a little more than 100 yards from the seafront promenade & the Lido. It is well-equipped and maintained and is convenient for a selection of bars, restaurants and good shopping.
Good location, with lots of good restaurants in the area.
Receptionists speak excellent English and very friendly.
The car park is free, that was a nice, as some hotels in the same location ask for payment.
The hotel was very clean, and housekeeping does an excellent job...
If you do decide to go for this hotel, please do yourself a favour and go for the Superior Suite with sea view!!
The room was huge! Loved the bathroom with an amazing big bathtub. The view from our balcony was good. The sun beds in the balcony were a perfect touch to a great room.
Breakfast is ordinary, nothing special.
Outside pool area is nice but the spa area with the inside pool and jacuzzi isn't nothing special, went there for just 30 minute and we left without wanting to go back to the spa area. That needs a very big update! They should get ideas from the other hotel of the group, Four Views Baia, that has an amazing spa area.
Overall an ok touristy hotel with nothing extraordinary but that will a little change could be a great hotel.
Couldn’t have asked for better hotel. Arrived and was put up on top floor, but when I asked to go lower got the ground floor. Hubby decided he wanted a poolside room and they were happy to oblige...
Receptionists speak excellent English and very friendly. Never usually go back to the same place but seriously considering it.
The hotel was clean and smart. The staff without exception were pleasant and heloful. The food, we stayed half board, was buffet style with a large range of choice and very good quality...
Sparkling wine was available every breakfast time! We never had to wait for a table.
The only drawback was that it is a hotel of two halves. The original part holds the main function areas and rooms. The newer part is accessed through the rear of the building and has the studios which is where we stayed. It's a long way from the front of the hotel and restaurant! The view from the balconies are not as good or as sunny as the main building. The room was huge! There are frequent buses into funchal from outside the hotel or a 40 minute pleasant walk. There are lots of bars and restaurants close by where beer and wine is cheaper than hotel prices. Overall I would definitely go back but not to a studio and only stay b and b
This is very nice hotel with perfect location. First of all, you dont need to order taxi from the Funchal airport. There is local bus, direct from Airport to the bus stop (right opposite hotel entrance)...
Btw like liked the Monumental street area, this is beautiful area. Also its easy to go to the Funchal center by bus. Hotel room was big and clean. Huge balcony and good working aircon. Breakfast also was good. Recommend this hotel!
There are builders 30 yards from my balcony. They are there from dawn till dusk. Builders aren’t quiet, my balcony is unuseable...
I should have been made aware of this before I was moved into this room (I moved in on a local holiday, no builders). Very inconsiderate, spoils the holiday. Poor management
