Location - beautiful view of Cabo Girao, especially at night - looks like a Christmas tree! Too far to walk to Funchal, but there's a good bus service with bus nr 2 stopping just in front of the hotel and bus nr 1 stopping behind building A. (day tickets for 5 euros to buy at reception desk). Close to Forum... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Madeira & the hotel was better than we expected. All the staff were very helpful & courteous. The reception staff had a lot of useful knowledge & we found Bernard particularly helpful. We were on HB basis and the food was very good, plentiful and with plenty of choice. Sun terrace was very relaxing... More

Madeira is a lovely island and well worth a visit. The type of hotel you choose is important and this is a nice 4 star accommodation right on the coast with great views of the Atlantic. It's important to note that this is a very quiet location. The loudest things there are the cockerels and howling dogs that 'chorus' on... More

We were very impressed with Golden Residence. Very comfortable and clean with charming staff who wanted to please us. It is in a good position on the outskirts of the city - a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport (E25 arranged by the hotel and the same friendly driver who took us back there a week later - very...

Convenient location of the hotel- not far from the down town (15-20 minutes by bus). 20 minutes by walk to the beach Praia Formosa. Beautiful views from the rooms. Gorgeous panoramic view from the pool area. Friendly staff speaking main European languages. But I must mention that building A is located too close to the main thoroughfare - Estrada Monumental...

We were delighted with this well run hotel. We booked via Monarch airlines but our holiday turned out to be a package holiday by Cosmos. Despite this it was a very individual holiday i.e. we were not in a group of any sort. First surprise was that the hotel gave us a free upgrade to a spacious apartment. They said... More

Just back from The Golden Residence and we found it to be an excellent hotel. We were 'room only' as the price difference we were quoted for B and B was excessive and it turned out to be a good decision. We had a lovely spacious suite of rooms that included a compact mini kitchen that had everything you needed... More
