I have visited many top hotels. Our recent and 1st ever visit to Reid's Palace was the best to date. We stayed for a week on half board. The combination of an historic building in beautiful cliff top location along with excellent staff and superb food is hard to beat. The hotel has beautiful gardens. Antique furniture and paintings indoors. On top of this we had the good fortune to visit when the White Party -the hotel's annual summer event- was occurring. This resort will best appeal to the discerning and mature visitor. The list of such discerning folk who have stayed there is eye watering. The guests at Reid's were mainly northern European and mostly middle aged UK people when we visited. If looking for a restful break in a mild sub-tropical Atlantic location with beautiful ecology in Europe the island of Madeira is the place to go. It is not unlike Atlantic coast of Ireland or Scotland but the weather is better. There are no beaches. The night life in the hotel is restrained and night clubbers should only visit if in need of complete rest and relaxation. We cannot wait to return. Interestingly many guests come every year.
