I stayed at the Royal Orchid in May 2015 with my husband. Upon arriving at the hotel we were greeted by the receptionist, we didn't feel very welcomed and could probably do with smiling a bit more. Our room was ok, we went self catering and had an inland view which was of the car park. There was no microwave... More

Stayed April 2015, my parents and I. Requested high up rooms next door to each other which we got and were good, however asked to upgrade to a room with a balcony and was told that the hotel was full. In the next couple of days we found this hard to believe as the hotel seemed empty!! The rooms were... More

I had expected a 4 star experience but was disappointed. The staff are extremely helpful but the hotel not a 4 Star experience. We had a one bedroom apartment which was large but very poorly equipped. Had to purchase a mobile router to have wifi in the room €25 plus €60 deposit. The room designed to do some self catering...

Recently returned from 3 weeks holiday at the Royal Orchid. I booked with Mercury Direct taking advantage of their offer of two weeks half board third week free on room only. When booking into the hotel I found Lourdes the receptionist very helpful, she explained meal times and the facilities available. I requested a room on a high floor, she... More

This hotel is informal and relaxed. The staff are very helpful especially in the dining room and the maids are lovely. Canico is hilly and can be cloudy in comparison to Funchal but it is quieter and has lovely views across the ocean. The hotel offers an efficient courtesy bus into Funchal 6 days a week. The food is varied... More

We have just returned from a weeks holiday on this most delightful island of contrast. The hotel is one of a group of 3 which are all located next door to each other on one extremely large complex. All 3 hotels have their own identity and residents of each hotel have access to the other hotels. We had a junior... More

We upgraded to a junior suite and it was well worth it. The terrace we had was great with sea views. We didn't eat at the hotel but had drinks in the bar and at the Rocamar and both were fine. Not many people here so it lacked a bit of atmosphere but no problem. All the staff were pleasant... More

Stayed at the Royal Orchid with my husband for three weeks and have just returned. First the positives - a well furnished and equipped apartment which was cleaned to perfection every day by a pleasant lady. The views from our room on the 6th floor were just stunning and it was wonderful to wake up to the sea views even... More

We spent 10 nights here and found everything in the hotel very clean, comfortable and satisfactory. Our stay was half board and the food and service in the dining room/bar was very good. There was plenty of choice at breakfast. Some mornings we were able to enjoy it on the outside terrace overlooking the Desertas Islands watching the lovely sunrise.... More
