Stayed for 5 days in June and enjoyed every minute. The room was large, bright and clean with a fantastic sea view, the balcony was a lovely place to sit and enjoy drinks. Perhaps the only slightly negative aspect was the below average buffet breakfast, did not have any other meal there so I cannot comment on them. The pool... More

Okay, rooms are big and quite nice but all the rest was terrible. Staff is very rude and not friendly at all. The sunbeds near the pool are old and almost every chair is broken. At first sight the hotel is clean, but it is anly for the eye. Not a nice terrace to enjoy the view with a drink.... More

room cleaned regularly and food excellent and plentiful with superb selection of dishes. All rooms appear to have a sea view and ours was great. Only 1 internet screen available and difficult to find anywhere pleasant to walk by the sea.

had a last minute deal with this hotel and was very unhappy with it. the best thing about the royal orchid was my checking out. staff rude, food cold and unappetising. there was more hairs in the bathroom then on a hairdressers floor ! décor and furniture are certainly not 4star. having worked hard to pay for a holiday I...

It is with a heavy heart that I have to write a bad review. having just returned from this hotel I was very disappointed to say the least. Upon arrival we were told where our room was by a very unfriendly man. we proceeded to lug our suitcases up to the 2nd floor and when the key was placed in... More

Rooms were big and spacious and our view was first class. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby for the evening, but if you are some way out from Funchal (25 euros by taxi) and 45 minutes by bus as it stops everywhere, so we hired a car for 5 of the 10 days we stayed. You could dive straight... More

I have just arrived back from a week at Royal Orchid and I am so sad to be home. I went with my Mum just to get away for a relaxing week and we had a great time! I only have a couple of negative points, one of them being the staff at the reception. While most of the staff... More

On arrival we were booked in efficiently and taken to our appartment which was a large studio type with a bathroom, a kitchen, bed area and the sitting area. It had a large balcolny which overloocked the sea and the pool and grounds which were well maintained. As self catering there was no kettle and the first morning we went... More

Just returned yesterday from staying 10 days at the Royal Orchid. Rooms very big, well equipped, very clean. Great view of Atlantic. Food was as expected. 4 main dishes every evening. Great deserts. Very quiet resort, perhaps too quite for some. If you are only b & b there are only approx. 6 other restaurants to eat. Food and drink... More
