Stayed here for a week on r.c.i points. We did not spend lot of time at hotel, because we were going all the time, just sleeping and having breakfast in selfcatering room. Well I tried swimmingpool and sauna couple of nights. Sauna did not have water to cast on rocks: "löyly" as we finns call it and air was too... More

We were with 11month baby... Hotel and staff were helpful but I want to show few things for other to consider Not easy to navigate with baby stroller due to number of stairs... And the lifts sometime were not "on our way".... The swimming pool water was to cold for babies and the only other choice was Jacuzzi... The food... More

The best thing a hotel can provide is helpful, friendly staff and the Royal Orchid had nothing but. In the week we stayed everyone was so friendly. The apartment we had, facing the ocean, was airy and spacious with comfy chairs, a writing desk and a balcony with a small table and chairs as well as a nicely appointed kitchen... More

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...

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
