This is a tranquil hotel, well appointed with very professional staff. It is ideally located within walking distance of Funchal centre with great views of Reids Hotel and the cruise terminal. Although it has a small play area for children and the restaurant can provide high chairs it is really an adult resort catering for well heeled retirees. The restaurant... More

Good sized studio room and balcony. Helpful and friendly staff. Good location with a half hour stroll into Funchal but also other restaurants close by. Gorgeous pool area with the added benefit of an indoor pool, spa and gym.

Accommodation was roomy with full kitchen, two bathrooms ,large lounge, bedroom and ocean view Food and service in the dinning room was excellent. We will definitely stay again at the Royal Savoy. This hotel lives up to expectations. Ethna & Ged Curley.

We had not been to our timeshare for 5 years.My wife was worried about the flights(last time we circled 3 times before landing) and the lack if development at the rebuilding of the Savoy. Finally,there is a new owner and rebuilding seems to be under way.The completion date is early 2018. The food is wholesome and plentiful but lacks flair.... More

The hotel was beautiful and just outside of the center of the city. Our room had a small kitchen, nicely decorated, and comforting. But we did have some issues with the services while we staying at the hotel. The issues were not horrible, but they did add up and should have not happened considering it was an expensive hotel.First the... More

We only had dinner here; an upgrade from the sister hotel (Savoy Gardens) nearby. Service great.. too good really (a bit in your face); food perfect; good value as well (fillet medallions cooked at the bar while you wait, not long). Music & cocktails brilliant, the best; the whistling saxophonist was brilliant (see photo of his poster).

We stayed at the Royal Savoy for a week through a swap with Interval. This was our second time at the hotel having stayed four years ago. The hotel is very smart with classic decorations and carpeting. Our room was excellent with good facilities and a great sea view from the 5th floor. We had asked for a high floor... More

It has to be said that the Royal Savoy is a lovely hotel. Staff are polite and friendly. We had a very comfortable room with large balcony and sea view. Unfortunately during the week the outside of the hotel was being painted which meant that a large 'gantry' was outside our window and part of the balcony would be blocked... More
