Two thumbs up. First for the convenient location (starting with nerby public beach, Lido walk for joggers, sea food restaurants in the neighbourhood, bus stop right in front of the reception and convenient shopping mall opened till midnight). Second for the pleasant staff. Cannot agree with the opinion that hotel is German oriented. Reception staff have spoken perfect English and... More

Great service from start to end, from reception to cleaning, restaurant staff. Room was very clean and in excellent shape, everything working fine. It was an apartment with a great sea view with a "hidden" small kitchen with a microwave, fridge, sink and electric stove. All modern, clean and nice material (marble and inox). In the living area, there was... More

The hotel and staff were great and the rooms were clean modern and comfortable. The food at the hotel is very good and the spa treatments are excellent. My husband and I stayed to celebrate our first anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better destination and accommodation. It isn't within walking distance to the historic district but that's no... More

Rooms are wide and modern. The hotel is in a quiet area, walking distance from a shopping center, but quite far away from city center, do not think of going on foot to Funchal historic area. The swimming pool is just inviting, it also has spa area for a perfect relax.

It was our second year at the Golden Residence, this time with even more family, so we had to take a T2 apartment and a normal room. We were a little afraid on going during peak season (last year we went in July) but the truth is that it was still very calm, either during the night or during the... More

Hotel is split into 3 buildings with access through all by corridors & tunnels. Our room in Block C had a gorgeous view. Very close to bars and restaurants but not on the doorstep so was not disturbed by noise. There is also access upto the main road which is near the shopping centre and bus stops. We were only...

The Hotel (see www.goldenresidencehotel.com) is very new and modern and in our opinion benefits from being positioned further round the coast away from the main marina and other hotels. We found walking the promenade from the hotel to the marina was a pleasant 30-40min walk which takes you right along the cliff and lets you enjoy a completely uninterupted view... More

There was some construction work in the vicinity, but they finish in the afternoon ant we didn't noticed at all. Indoor pool with saunas were free all the... More

Well what can i say - what a beautiful hotel. I traveled here with my partner and my parents for a birthday celebration and what a wonderful time we had. The room which we booked had two bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and one with a wet room, which both joined on to our main living/dining area. This... More
