We went to the Royal Savoy with friends last night for a special gourmet dinner. The setting was wonderful. Just 14 people on the roof of an ancient fort within the grounds and with the sea lapping at the walls. The food was of a very high quality; foie gras poëlé, canard à l'orange, etc. My only negative comment would... More

Just returned from an Interval International timeshare exchange. Although in many ways it did live up to it's "Savoy" reputation in others it did not. eg I arrived around 7pm feeling tired after a long day travelling to be greeted with a cold reception and the statement that the half board vouchers I wished to purchase were no longer available...

We always enjoy our regular visit to the Royal Savoy, Funchal. As ever the hotel is very pleasing in many respects and we always look forward to staying there. The pools and apartments are spotlessly clean and the staff are very keen to please. However it is very noticeable that there is a distinct lack of "management" presence especially over... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a week at this lovely hotel with stunning views. An older crowd staying here which gave it a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. There were some families with children but they were all so well behaved you didn't even know they were there. I like a bit of life in the evening and enjoyed the nightly entertainment in the...

We went here for a calm getaway in November last year The hotel, staff and rooms are absolutely lovely and the view spectacular. All the pools and possibility for swimming in the ocean are clean and well taken care of. The food in the "pool bar" is not worth the money, the salads are boring and too simple to be... More

We stayed for 2 weeks last month. We`re very familiar with this hotel as original time share owners. We dont go every year though. Bouquets: 1) the food in the main dining room was terrific. Breakfast and dinner was so good that we frequently ate in rather than eat at local restaurants. Full marks to the kitchen staff. 2) the... More
