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.

I last visited a year ago with my Brother in law and two friends. The rooms were set up as two twin rooms, which we had requested. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the hotel but went out to the local restaurants and bars. The time of year we went was for the Madeira wins... More

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...
