From the moment we arrived after the short 10 minute transfer from the airport until we left a week later (will stay for 2 weeks next time) we thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality offered by this hotel, starting with the glass of Madeira wine at check in right across all other aspects from cleanliness of the rooms and public areas to...

I have just returned from Madeira after a fantastic 7 day all inclusive stay at the Riu Palace. I could not fault the staff, food or cleanliness of the entire hotel! The weather can be a little concerning as they do tend to get a lot of cloud, but don't let this worry you as you will still tan without... More

Returned from Riu Palace today, after what can only be described as a sad experience, firstly this is no reflection at all on a lovely hotel, with excellent staff and food. Unfortunately on arrival I was very poorly and things escalated into me not leaving the hotel apart from visiting the clinic on several occasions! The reception staff went beyond... More

Recently spent 7 days in Riu Palace Madeira. Superb staff and food and communal facilities. Our room was a bit tired and we had a very limited sea view. Not too impressed with the evening entertainment but I suppose with the number of nationalities present it would be difficult to find a common theme. I would recommend this hotel and... More

Returned home from a week's holiday on 30/6/14.We have been to a couple of Riu's before but the Palace in Canico,Madeira was the best.It is located about half way between the airport and Funchal and the transfer is about 20 minutes. We checked into our lovely big room with a nice balcony.There was a "semi"sea view. There was plenty of... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks at the Riu Palace. The flights were excellent we even arrived early. A short transfer and check in. This took a while as there was a long queue (45 mins) but a glass or two of Maderia helped. We had room which had a large balcony with excellent views of the... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday at The Riu Palace Hotel, Madeira and could not fault it in any way. The rooms are spacious and clean with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space cleaned thoroughly daily by our very efficient maid. Food is first rate; excellent variety and cooked to the highest standard for all meals. Bar service... More

We have just returned from a week at the Riu Palace and you really cannot fault this hotel. We arrived on Monday lunchtime which is the busy day for change-overs and check-in was efficient with a glass of Madeira wine being offered while we waited and we were in our room within 10 minutes. The staff are really very friendly... More

One week at Riu - hotel good, although bedrooms would benefit from an upgrade, food satisfactory to good. Felt that the hotel was a little way out the bus taking 30mins+ to Funchal. I think perhaps the roadworks in Funchal and the windy weather may have coloured our view of the holiday.

We recently returned from Madeira after a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. It was the first visit for us and we were not disappointed. We researched the hotel and the country before we chose this holiday and everything lived up to our expectations. As Riu members we have stayed in quite a few Riu hotels in different countries and we truly feel... More
