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

Impressed by the location, welcome, service, and overall ambience as well as breakfasts (we ate out at night because of the great choice of restaurants available nearby). Good chance we will use this hotel again (would be hard to beat). Had to go to reception area to get wifi to work.

We visit The Savoy every year as we are timeshare owners. This time we had 2 rather than just 1 week. This made for an even more relaxed frame of mind. The hotel is really quite hard to fault. It is superbly furnished, has generous sized rooms, (all with kitchen areas) and is in the No 1 location in funchal... More

We have just returned from a week at The Royal Savoy and it was excellent from the moment we arrived until the morning we left.

Great location and near enough to walk into Funchal which is a really lovely city. Royal Savoy is now in need of a lick of paint. The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. Bar staff are great! The evening floor shows are particularly good. We stayed on a room only basis and it didn't look as if the hotel was... More
