One week, All Inclusive at the beginning of October; we wanted sunshine but did not want to travel too far. Having never been to Madeira I spent a lot of time looking at reviews. The reviews for Riu Palace are, almost without exception, heaped with praise & compliments so we decided to give it a try. We could not have... More

This hotel is a must for those who want to chill and relax in reasonably tranquil conditions. The rooms are mostly with sea view or partial sea view and are well appointed. The balconies are spacious, take two loungers with ease and have a clothes drying facility. The staff cannot do enough to help and the cuisine is varied and... More

We had a week's stay at this hotel in late September and it has been one of the best holidays we have ever had. The hotel was immaculate. Our room overlooked the pool and had a sea view (this had been changed by the staff as the first room we were given was at the back of the hotel and... More

I arrived at this hotel on September the 22nd with my husband. We stayed there for a week I can't give my praises enough! Everything was outstanding, from the reception, bar and restaurant staff to the variety of cuisine in the restaurants. The location was breath-taking with a remarkable sea view in our room. The overall cleanness off the hotel... More

Excellent hotel. Friendly staff. Great food choice in restaurant. Very clean. Pools excellent. We were told room only had partial sea view but overlooked pool and good view of sea. Only complaint is that WiFi only available in lobby. Would certainly go back

When you stay in a hotel boasting all inclusive platinum you have to be look hard for ways it could be improved, so having said that we found the poolside service not what we expected compared to other Riu Palaces we have stayed in, most of the time we had to go and get our drinks ourselves. Meals were excellent... More
