Truly the best in 5* traditions, both staff and structure. Incomparable. Breakfasts superlative. Swimming pools spotlessly clean and heated for winter ! Gardens delightful. Good enough for Churchill, good enough for me !

Already looking forward to return. Staff and hotel are exceptional. Food and dining is top class. Views and ambiance is nothing short of spectacular. Excellent location, central but still quiet with it´s wonderful gardens. Being an avid traveler I am used to stay at many international hotels. Few makes me feel at home the way that Reid´s does.

I have just returned from a week's stay at Reid's Palace Hotel. We were enchanted by the building itself, its public spaces exude old-world style with chandeliers and furnishings of the finest quality. We were made welcome immediately with a personal guide of the hotel's facilities and told to make ourselves at home, which we did with ease. Our double... More

We were due to stay here last May but sadly I broke my shoulder. On a Cunard cruise last month we called in at Madeira and decided to have a drink and lunch at this wonderful hotel. This is truly the most fabulous place and location. It is a top class hotel but although the staff were magnificent there was... More

Spent two weeks there with my very good friend following my husbands death. Staff were wonderful - so attentive. Just what was needed to relieve the exhaustion of the last year. The spa is fantastic with the sounds of the ocean coming through the windows. Thanks to Antonio for looking after us and Ricardo for dancing with us.

Extreme comfort, formal but comfortable, stunning location, feels like you are living in the set of a 1950’s stylish movie, I will return and hopefully soon. Staff excellent and the little extras like; free soft drinks from the in room mini bar, and a late checkout (3pm) offered unilaterally.
