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

We have visited Madeira for several years, so decided to try somewhere further out from Funchal, this hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking a long pebbly beach, which can be reached by steps and a tunnel. We booked a apartment suite this has an interesting kitchen in a cupboard with a fridge, microwave and slide out sink & hob,... More

If you want to be near Funchal, this relatively new hotel is not ideal. It takes about 55mins to walk into town. The frequent buses are very reasonable and stop at the hotel, as does the airport bus. Having been to Madeira many times, this year we just wanted a quiet, good value week in the sun which is more... More

We have spent a wonderful week on this fantastic hotel and overall our experience has been positive and definitely would recommend to anyone. The location is not a problem at all although is not near the center of Funchal that makes it more quiet area overlooking the Cabo Girao (one of the biggest of Europe) and on a cliff with... More

My husband and 2 kids stayed at Golden Residence hotel for a week in November. We booked a room with cooking facilities and we found everything you can find in your own home. The hotel is very modern. Comfortable and clean rooms and very well furnished. We had wonderful views from our terrace over the ocean. It was very relaxing... More

Really impressed with this hotel. My husband and I stayed for a week in June, and it was just lovely. The Hotel offers s/c, b&b, half board and full board. We opted for a room with cooking facilites and ended up with a Suite type room - lounge, kitchen area, separate bedrrom and bathroom. The roms were really modern and... More
