My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful relaxing week 21st to 28th July. We arrived on our 30th wedding anniversary and were given a fantastic room overlooking the pool and ocean on the 4th floor. A sparkling bottle of Cava and glasses were left in our room too to celebrate the occasion. A lovely touch to start... More

We travelled as a couple with Thomsons to this hotel which allowed us to arrange a hire car through Funchal Car Hire to be delivered directly to the hotel other than have the usual wait at the car hire centre at the airport, it is one of the few car hire companies I would recommend. The Riu Palace is a... More

We have just returned from a relaxing fortnight at the lovely Riu Palace. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by all of the lovely and attentive staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived and asked for a better view, the receptionist was charming and understanding and offered a choice of... More

We could not fault the RIU Madeira Palace Hotel, our all inclusive holiday was great whilst staying at this hotel. The attention to detail by management and staff in the dining rooms was first class, we could not fault anything. The Thomson representative Lorraine at this hotel was also so pleasant and cheerful with a great personality. Nothing was too... More

We've just arrived home after a fantastic fortnight at the Riu Palace Madeira. This is an extremely quiet resort, perfect to get the rest i don't get at home with all the usual rushing around. I probably wouldn't come here with children as it is a fairly adult orientated hotel, but as a party of 3 adults it was spot... More

Currently staying here. Can't fault the hotel for luxury, sea views and the Food!!! The restaurant is really good with exceptional choice and quality of food, you will not be disappointed. The all-inclusive package is very good from a drinks perspective with a wide range of internationally known brands, 10 out of 10 for choice. Nice touches like complimentary bottles... More

We were here for 8 days end of June. Great service and reception. Lovely swimmingpools (that dont seem to be used a lot) for a nice morning dip before breakfast. The buffet for breakfast and dinner are very varied and good quality. Not a big as the usual riu palace (only 1 restaurant) and they are quite scarce in replenishing... More

Excellent hotel with many international travellers staying there. Staff polite and all spoke about four languages. Food was just excellent with buffets, and at night a chef's station and carvery. The Manager and Head Chef welcomed everyone into the hotel restaurant at night. Rooms clean and functional. Pools and sunbed areas, small pool cafe all good but busy. Good nighttime... More
