The hotel was kept spotlessly clean, and the staff were tremendously hard-working and very eager to please. The decor was that of a "traditional" hotel and none the worse for that. The food lived up to it's billing in other reviews, and we are all now trying to shed the weight accumulated during our stay! The service overall was excellent,... More

The sea view is stunning from the pool area,... More

This was our second visit to Madeira, this time in May when the flowers are more plentiful than July, and we had no hesitation in staying at the same hotel. It is very comfortable, well maintained, good service and very good food. There is a plentiful and changing range of meat and fish dishes - especially freshly griddled fillets of... More

Only thing that lets hotel down is the Wi fi. Even when you get your free hour it takes half the time to load anything. If it's important to you pay for... More

We stayed at The Riu Palace for a week in May. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of Madeira wine and once in our room we were contacted by reception asking us if our room was acceptable. The food choices in the restaurant were varied with plenty of choice changing daily . We have to travelled extensively and... More

We have just returned from a one week holiday at the Riu Palace and had a nice holiday. On arrival the welcome was good but it took ages to bring the luggage to the room. The rooms were nice but did not feel like the carpet in the room was very clean. A big balcony but was in the shade... More
