With my wife and family members, we have enjoyed the comforts and ease of staying at the Royal Savoy for over 10 years now. Pleasingly, nothing changes - it doesn't have to ! - consequently, we have got used to calling this our home from home. Everything is provided here to make one's stay an effortless pleasure, in addition to... More

We have just returned from a new year stay at the Royal Savoy and cannot praise it highly enough. From the welcome at reception to the service around the pool & in the restaurants everyone was helpful, pleasant & professional. Our junior suite (3rd floor) was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and well appointed with spectacular views across the bay. Having... More

I stayed in a 2 bed apartment for a week from 22 December. Beautiful accommodation with all the little luxuries that you would expect from a high quality property such as this. Staff were very helpful, and the quality of housekeeping was outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the excellent gym facilities followed by a swim in the beautiful and warm indoor... More

The Royal Savoy Resort was completed in 2002 to provide 5* Vacation Club accommodation (with some hotel use), in addition to the nearby Savoy Hotel. We have 6 weeks of T0 (Studio) Vacation Club membership in First Floor Studios at the Royal Savoy. We prefer the privacy of the balcony that is only available on Ground & First Floors. The... More

that was what Madeira was for in the old days, and it still applies somewhat today. We have been visiting the Royal Savoy for 11 years and really love it. The apartments are old style Portugese, with most mod cons, fabulous balconies, and lovely sea and coastal views. Indoor and out door heated pool, and ambient pool. The restaurant does... More

My husband and I have just enjoyed a fabulous week here at the Royal Savoy. Our studio apartment was very well furnished and contained beautiful artwork. The kitchenette included a dishwasher which enhanced the self-catering experience tremendously. The bathroom included both a walk in shower and a separate bath.

On a positive note the rooms are excellent and staff very friendly and provide an excellent service. However: - food in the restaurants is not up to the level you would expect from a quality hotel. After one particularly bad and expensive lunchtime meal we ate out for the rest of the holiday. Luckily there are many excellent restaurants close... More

Two words describe this hotel - classic and tranquil. Definitely not the place to go if you want dancing until the early hours. The staff are unobtrusive, friendly, cheerful and efficient and the accommodation is of an excellent standard. I think the fact that so many people come back year after year proves its quality and timeless charm.

We have had a wonderful week in a very relaxing hotel with friendly, cheerful and efficient staff. The entertainment is well balanced for our tast as sometimes we like to dance and others to be entertained. We have been coming here for the past 9 years and will keep coming back as long as we can.
