Very friendly hotel. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. On arrival advised that we had been upgraded to a suit. 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.

Positive: The hotel has a good location, good and modern facilities that I would emphasize as positive aspects as well as cleaning. The room was very neat and it was perfectly cleaned daily. The common areas are great. This is a new area with Madeira Forum shopping center within walking distance and all kinds of services nearby and good communications... More

This hotel is situated in the Lido area some kilometers west of the centre, easy to reach by bus No 2 with stop just outside the hotel. Buy return ticket in the reception. The hotel is divided into three blocks separated by a street. Block C in rather low whereas B and A are high ( for those with vertigo).... More

The room/suite was huge, the bed the biggest we have ever slept in and the wet room really spacious. The setting was lovely although it was in an area full of developments and a little way out of the city centre. However there was a bus stop outside with busses every 20 mins. Staff were very helpful
