The almost unanimously glowing reviews don't need repeating, so I will just make observations that haven't had much coverage. We stayed in the "new" part of the hotel, in a spacious suite on the 6th (top) floor. It had everything you might desire, except tea/coffee making facilities. When we phoned down for a kettle, it arrived, with a tray of... More

My husband had booked this for our summer break with our 3 year old daughter. Upon arrival we were shown to our room which was beautiful and had lovely little touches to welcome our daughter, toiletries, teddy, slippers etc. We found the staff extremely helpful and the atmosphere was lovely. My daughter happily played at the pool as I visited... More

For old world charm this is a fantastic hotel and experience. The rooms have charm and were spotless and well serviced. Breakfast was exceptional and the views across the sea spectacular. The pools were great and empty at the time of year we stayed. The gardens were beautiful and unique for a hotel and not to be missed. Superb. The... More

As it was our first time in Funchal and on Madeira we picked this very historic hotel for our short stay. It's easy enough to find coming from the airport and convinces the first time visitor with it's privileged site directly above the cliffs towards the Atlantic. The service is outstanding, it starts with the professional valet parking service for... More

Arrived on an impossibly early EasyJet flight from London Gatwick but it was worth it to sit and bask in the hot sunshine by late morning and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch packed with fresh ingredients on the pool terrace. We stayed in the main house and were fortunate to receive an upgrade to a beautiful de luxe room leading... More

Just returned from a short break. Planning our return trip already. Superb views of Funchal. Extremely comfortable and luxurious room. The staff are so polite and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food is excellent. We enjoyed a relaxed and pampered few days, we will return soon !

Reid's is an old and famous hotel extended by unattractive blocks and skirted by a busy road, but it retains a protective and spectacular tropical green belt between the buildings and the sea. The overall structure is on many levels and initially it is not easy to find the various facilities. For example the trek from the reception area to... More

Reids is known all over the world for the level of sophistication and comfort. And though I have stayed in many hotels on the island of Madeira I have. It stayed at Reids before. What a mistake I made. This is all one wishes for in a hotel. Is it expensive? Not really for the level of service and comfort.... More

This was our first trip to Madeira and we will certainly return . Reid"s had been described to us a perhaps a bit stuffy and jaded . Not at all !!! It is exclusive without being pretentious. Our room - a Superior - was fabulous with a seaview on the 8th floor . Very comfortable and peaceful colours throughout the... More

Listed under the Best Hotel in the World group. You can understand why when you stay here. So very relaxing with private beach and two lovely pools. If you are looking for a relaxing break with no night clubs and good food with true British tradition. This is one amazing place to visit
