I grew up there but haven't been in nearly 20yrs
child friendly ok
not many things open late / weekends
weather should be 17C to 20C
but expect rain at some point during the day

We went there for Xmas pre kids and it was warm, but def. not sunbathing weather.

Stayed at Reeds Hotel which was quite nice, perched on top of a cliff.

Lots of nice walks along levadas in the hills, good tropical gardens to visit.

Don't expect it to be a beach holiday for New Yr.
