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

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

Have mixed feelings about our accommodation in this 4 star hotel. Upon arrival we were met with a very luke-warm greeting by older male receptionist whereas the English couple who arrived minutesafter us were met with smiles and very much warmer greeting - they were staying as hotel guests rather than timeshare holidaymakers...! Initially was told room was not ready... More

Reading some of the other reviews it seems others were luckier than us in their experiences. I have photo's of cockroaches 1.5 inches long and .5 inch width, two of which we left trapped under a plastic bowl on the bathroom floor as further evidence. The staff didn't seem the least bit surprised when the problem was reported which made... More
