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.

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

The Royal Orchid Hotel is lovely place to stay for a visit to the beautiful island of Madeira. We found it a real treat to stay here. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, particularly with directions and public transport advice. The hotel enjoys fantastic views with being situated right on the coastline (not accurately placed on Google maps!),... More

First visit to Madeira and we loved our weeks holiday in the Royal Orchid hotel. Just a couple of things that could have been better. We found the older male receptionist unhelpful and disinterested. If we had a problem or question we waited until the lovely lady came on duty. She couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. We chose... More
