“A lovely staying in Funchal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Enjoy the stay at Hotel Raga, nice rooms, friendly staff, helpfull, was situated in calm area, with a nice view especially the rooms on the corner, view on the sea and also on the mountains, , near the busses and even could walk to the center of Funchal.
A lot to walk around for people who like walking, went in november and the weather was so good, still flowers every where. The restaurant, with terace, and buffet, with a lot of fish.

Room Tip: rooms on the corners half way of the building, very nice view

Just returned from this lovely hotel, the rooms are very nice and modern with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Although on a hill if you go out at the bottom gate by the pool you are on the main road with all the shops,restaurants and bus stops.its about 30 min walk to the left into Funchal but well worth it. Walk about 30min to your right to the forum with a food court and lots of shops. The staff are very friendly, especially at the pool bar. We toured a lot of the island, via car and coach, it's beautiful. We would definitely go back to see things we missed and would be happy to stay at the Raga.

Room Tip: Looking out to sea, right Corner sea view gets the sun nearly all day

I stayed here for 1 night on a Business trip.
The reception staff are very friendly and obliging. A late check out was given without hassle and no extra charge.
The room was an average size with an average bathroom. Not 4 star standard.
The room has an empty fridge and the room safe costs 1.50 euro per day.
The room only had 1 plug socket to use, hidden behind a chair.
The beds are very hard. The room service has very limited times 7pm - 9.30pm. The room service menu is limited. Breakfast also has a very limited choice buffet.
The TV has 2 English channels Sky News and CNN!
The Balcony is a good size with table and 2 chairs. My room also had a sea view, although the hotel is not located on the sea front.
The swimming pool and pool area was clean with sun beds, but not in use due to over cast weather.
It is a good 25 minute walk into Funchal centre at a good pace, the steep hill you walk down goes up on the way back!!
There is a good shopping centre if you turn right out of the hotel about a 10 minute walk called "Forum". For cat lovers there is a shop in this centre called Gatto and sells everything with cats on!

The hotell was nice and clean, the swimmping pool area was also nice with sunbeds and a nice staff. The rooms was big with 2 balcony`s. and a very nice wiew.
Breakfast was also very good, the last day we ate there the manager came to us and asked us if we stayed there? He have seen us all week, so we had to show him our room key??
The service was good, but quite a strange location to have a hotell. in the middle of a very, and I mean very steap hill... Everything was good exept the location, it was a 25 min. walk to the city centre..

Stayed here for 8 days in a room with a view to the sea . The rooms are good with a good area with fridge, and sink to wash the dishes. They have a pool with sun beds. It takes you about 10 min of walk to the center of Funchal. Close by there is a supermarket , (Pindo Doce) where you can buy everything...wine, good chease, etc.

My partner and I have just returned from a holiday in Madeira where we stayed at the Raga Hotel. From the moment we walked into the hotel the staff were welcoming. When we entered our room it was excellent, nothing spectacular but clean and tidy, but we didn't go on holiday to spend all day and night in our room! We were perhaps fortunate to have a room with 2 balconies with great views over the coastline and hillsides behind the hotel. The restuarant was very good with staff eager to assist. The food, although on occasion not to my taste (but that was my taste) was good. The pool bar, which we used regularly and became quite well known to the staff (Helena and Rafael we'll miss you), where you could have a quick snack by the pool was great. The pool was cleaned every morning and the pool attendant and bar staff only to willing to help guests with new pool towels on request or an umbrella to shelter under when the sun became too hot.
The hotel was well positioned only a quick bus ride from the Centre of Funchal with a regular bus service running past the hotel.
Would have no qualms about going back there whenever we return to this beautiful island of Madeira. Well done Raga Hotel and all staff and thanks for a great holiday.

Room Tip: Depends what you want - there are rooms which may not offer a great view of the sea but all had balc...

Stayed here for one week in July and have nothing to complain about. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. Air con does it's job and there is a fridge in the room to keep your drinks and food cold. Staff was very friendly and helpful and there was always sun beds available by the pool.
The best thing was having breakfast on the teracce with stunning sea views!

There is a supermarket (Pingo Doce) nearby and a big shopping mall (Forum Madeira) within walking distance. If you dont fancy walking its easy to catch a local bus. The city centre is only 5 minutes away.

Room Tip: If your room is on the hill side of the hotel i recommend ear plugs as there is a residential area j...
