It is an average quality hotel/timeshare as found all over the world these days. By no means bad but nothing special. I am 65 but found the abundance of similarily and older aged people quite depressing. It felt as if I was in a very pleasant, up-market, old folks home. For me it was not a great holiday but if...

My ninth stay at this great hotel. No complaints so far ;) The staff is friendly, location is great just a short walk from the city centre. Pool area is very nice with the opportunity to swim and snorkle in the Atlantic ocean.

Lots of good points about the hotel but not a high quality experience we were expecting. Fabulous setting not too far away from the centre of Funchal (walking distance). Excellent service from the reception staff who helped with golf arrangements, restaurant bookings and taxis. Extensive terraced area around the swimming pools - beautifully laid out and felt peaceful and relaxing... More

It seems a bit churlish to start by criticizing this excellent hotel, but we got off to a bad start. We arrived in Madeira on an early evening flight and reception at the Royal Savoy was very busy but there was only one receptionist on duty. After a considerable wait, it was our turn, we were on an Interval International... More
