This is a 4* hotel, but the rating is not deserved. It is quite outdated and the service from staff is really poor. We went here, due to an offer, we paid 550€ for 2 including breakfast for a week, including flight from Copenhagen. From that perspective, we were quite happy here. The appartments are in 2 buildings, one to... More

This was an RCI exchange for us, and one of our best. The bed was firm and comfortable; a sofa provided a sitting area, and we had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool, which we used. Our 5th floor location gave a good view onto the sea. We never ate in the restaurant, which seemed to be packed with tour... More

Alto Lido provides clean, quiet and spacious accommodation and for us it was good value for money. We were given a large room (with twin beds pushed together), bathroom, pleasant balcony overlooking the swimming pool, a well- equipped kitchen with a spacious adjoining guest bedroom which had its own bathroom and separate balcony and TV. The sofa- bed in the... More

From what I have seen most of the negative reviews are unfounded. The hotel, whilst obviously not brand spanking new is spotlessly clean and CM look to be taking care of it and refurbishing looking at some past photographs. We are staying in a one bedroom unit as a RCI exchange. The apartment is lovely huge living area, two bathrooms... More

As I'd stayed myself, the year before, at the Hotel Raga (which had a lot of stairs within the complex) and I'd really enjoyed my stay in Madeira I chose to book the Alto Lido as it appeared to have a better layout for me & my husband to go on holiday. I also assumed it would be up to... More

We stayed here for a week in March. Our apartment was overlooking the outdoor pool so we were pleased that the weather was chilly as there would have been little or no privacy in the rooms. The rooms themselves were dark and the lighting was poor so it was difficult to read. The furnishings and equipment were adequate and the... More

Having spent one night at the apartment we had booked for our week's stay on Madeira we couldn't face spending any more time there so wandered along to the Hotel Alto Lido, came clean about our reasons for needing a room, and were allocated a lovely, third floor room with kitchenette, at a good rate, nothing added on because of...

This is the second time that I have stayed in this hotel and I must sat that I found it better than before. I asked for ,and was allocated, a room on the 13th floor overlooking the allotments and with a side sea view. As before it was lovely and clean and well equipped, although I must admit that the...

After being transferred to this hotel due to an overbooking problem at our planned hotel, the reception staff were friendly and most welcoming. We were offered side sea view rooms on the 11th floor. These were spotlessly clean and we had regular fresh towels and bed linen throughout our stay. We took advantage of the heated indoor pool and towel... More

Nice hotel, well placed, clean, comfortable room overlooking the swimming pool, very nice breakfast buffet, beds a bit hard, but as a whole everything to satisfy all our needs. BUT, the staff, though doing their job, was terribly sad, apart from the cleaning woman, we never enjoyed a smile or a greeting; usually when four people arrive either in the... More
