This trip to Madeira being our first, I definitely will be returning. The rooms are great witch reasonably large beds and a decently sized bathroom (shower, bathtub, bidet and all). Their closets where definitely big enough to house enough clothing for a couple weeks or so. Even from the 3rd floor (on which we were staying) you can get a... More

We recently stayed in a one bedroomed apartment at the Royal Savoy and loved it. We had two bathrooms, a massive main bedroom and a living room with kitchen, large dining table and a sofa which converted to a double bed. The apartment was very clean, with high quality furnishings and a massive balcony over looking the pools and the... More

Our second visit to Funchal, the first being 12 years ago, where we stayed in an apartment close to the old town so didn't know the 'Hotel Zone'. The hotel has little street presence on arrival as the main reception is on the 8th floor. The hotel rooms are then below this down the cliffside. It means a dramatic view... More

Another wonderful, relaxing fortnight. The staff are delightful, were so helpful when my husband took a tumble on a Levada walk, and for the first time we took our teen aged granddaughters who loved the pools and the general atmosphere - we wondered if they would find the Royal Savoy a little staid but they found everyone friendly and loved...

This really is 5 star! It was all super smooth from check in through to check out. The staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities all top notch. We had a suite with a connecting room (for our kids) which was great (the suite would have been big enough on its own I think). The decor inside the hotel and... More

Don't stay in this hotel - it's sonically dire!! Every night they would pedal some awful Muzak 'entertainment' to play beside the pool, I have to admit that dark thoughts sometimes took over and I found myself hoping that the awful saxophonist giving it large to Celine Dion would fall into the pool with his amp - it was truly...

The feeling of relaxation begins when we arrive in the taxi at the front door. The doormen are first-class. Reception is very efficient although a smile (which comes free) would be just the job! This was our fifth visit in four years, the first two as hotel guests and three as owners. Never a problem with our room or the... More

Excellent hotel, it's like a museum with all the artefacts on display. Salt water pools were great and very scenic. Food was superb and the restaurant and bar staff were very helpful, attentive and gracious as were all the other staff in the hotel. Great location about 15 minutes walk into Funchal city centre, this is a hotel and resort... More

The accommodation is excellent and room cleaning faultless. Not enough choice for meals, all being buffet and expensive for the quality. The staff were polite but not really friendly. Passing staff rarely said hello. The reception staff were efficient but could be warmer and smile more.

This is our second stay and it's generally very pleasing. The size of the place means it never feels crowded; whether you're in the hotel or by one of the many pools. Our Junior suite is just big enough for 2+2 (9&6 years old). Wi-Fi problems are a niggle; cashless food vouchers are a good deal (but spent quickly). Saltwater... More
