Structure is new, a bit out of the centre in an area with a lot of other hotels, but there is a very good bus connection to the center of Funchal (bus stops in front of the hotel) and you can easily rent a car for some days to discover the rest of this beautiful island. The appartment rooms were... More

Great hotel. Very clean, modern, and a great view over the sea ! Breakfast buffet was excellent - large choice and the omlettes are really good. December was a great time to visit - not busy, and beautiful weather.

We went there as a young couple for a weeks winter break in November. We paid extra for a sea view and for an apartment with a kitchenette. The location was amazing - the view from our room was over banana plantations (not a full sea view!) but interesting and you weren't really overlooked by other hotels. The view from... More

We've been there for one week vacation, the hotel and service have been excellent., the spa was also very nice and clean. As the hotel is 3km away from Funchal city center, it is therefore calm and not noisy.

We spent the extra and paid for a sea view apartment. What a treat to live in a well appointed apartment with a stunning view. Well worth the extra money. The modern hotel had lots to offer and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Free WIFI in public areas and free use of a computer. Breakfast was always a... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom appartment. De room was very large and was equipped with a kitchenette, two couches, a flatscreen TV and a dinner table. The staff was very helpful and all very fond of our eight month old daughter. The hotel is very near the madeira forum, a shopping centre where you can get your groceries. The... More

This is not our first visit to Madeira and every other visit has always been outstanding, but this time we were disappointed with our choice of hotel. The Golden Residence Hotel did not live up to our expectations, from the barely polite staff on reception, to the barman who insisted that the only wine available was from a box under... More

We stayed at this hotel in March 2011. The hotel is very nice and clean. We unexpectedly got a room with the kitchenette and sea view. Our standard room was quite big and very clean. The breakfast is very nice. Close to the beach. It's very difficult with beaches on Madeira. Close to this hotel (20 min ) you can... More
