This consisted of a small kitchen, behind cupboard doors, a dining table and a sofa and a seperate bedroom with a wet room. All very clean, however we never used the kitchen facilities. This was in block A, which over looked... More

Well situated in a quiet part of the Lido walk of Funchal. Efficient and pleasant staff, well equipped and superbly cleaned surroundings. Beautiful view from grounds (and balconies) of building C. This island is a place to visit again and again. The landscape, vegetation and the friendliness of the inhabitants is far superior to the Canary Islands. For those of... More

Really enjoyed our stay in Golden Residence. The pool was nice, the room was very clean. We got upgraded so we got a nice living area with small kitchen!!! But no wifi at our room is slightly annoying. Over all very good hotel, but perhaps it can be improved.
