Our 5th stay in our apartment in this traditional and reputable establishment with our friends made over the years, close to the town for easy walking access and the restaurant is so good it is pleasant to stay in and enjoy.

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

I have been staying at this hotel since 2006 as I'm a timeshare owner. I always read the reviews to see what the latest views are. I love the savoy, the rooms are so comfortable and the facilities are great. I think this hotel is one of the few real five star hotels on the island. The new discount vouchers... More

Been coming here 10 years now & it's like home from home for us. Very helpful & friendly staff who are always happy to see you back again. Gorg views from the room, great pools, gym, spa area is bliss! Must try their treatments-wonderful & relaxing. Great position for access to shops & restaurants. Highly recommend, worth every penny.

We have gone to the Royal Savoy in August every year since it opened. The resort is excellent but this year there have been improvements in value for money. Prices have come down and the discount voucher system has been improved. Now, the discount increases depending on how much you spend. There are several nights when the dinner in the... More

Madeira is certainly worth seeing / experiencing. Used this hotel as a base and loved the place. Great staff, decent food and no kids around to disturb the relaxing atmosphere. As long as you are fit enough to climb all the hills, try it out.
