“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Have visited the Club many times over the last 22 years, and have been delighted with almost every aspect. It is by far the friendliest resort in Madeira, backed up by friendly and accommodating staff, good facilities, and excellent apartments. Superb situation for visits to Funchal, and breakfast at the Yacht Bar overlooking the lovely pool has to be experienced to be believed. Easy access to the sea is yet another bonus.

Room Tip: All, but a few studios, are sea facing, and higher floors have improved views, and less noise.

We were booked into this hotel just for bed and breakfast. We know Madeira well so knew of it's excellent location but were surprised with the accommodation given and the general excellence of the hotel including enourmas room, excellent restauarant and general facilities including seaside pool and even ocean bathing oportunity.

It is basically a Time Share appartment facility so as a B and B customer one gets more than usual. It was in excellent decorative order. Highly recommended.

We stayed for most of a week on a timeshare swap to get some sun and away from the snow. The room was a 2 bedroom and very generously sized. The kitchen was a little basic for our taste. The TV was well stocked with a range of channels for all countries and preference. No Wi-fi in the room was a disappointment but the Lobby had a strong signal. We had a wonderful sea view and a massive balcony almost as big as the apartment. A little road noise and some building going on but not excessive. I personally found Madeiran cuisine quite limited. The staff were very polite friendly and helpful. The local supermarkets, except for the big one, were woefully stocked with most fridges closed down. The Club has a very nice pool area and some limited activities for guests.

Room Tip: Just the usual high up and away from the lifts.

It was better than we expected and did the job. Very room studio overlooking the sea, pool area, sea and a view of the harbour. Accommodation was fine - very spacious and much bigger than we had hoped for. Very quiet and restful. However the whole place is a little higgledy piggledy in that you go into reception, up the stairs to the 1st floor, then across the garden, across a bridge over a road and then another lift down to your studio room. We had an end room which had a semi-circular balcony which was delightful. We were next to the lift which we thought might cause a problem but didn't. Everything worked well within the studio room which included a kitchenette and all the mod cons. Large TV with 70 channels most this time in English. Food in the Yacht Restaurant and Bar was delightful - we only ever ate there at lunch times and the staff were lovely. Overall a lovely stay - thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Madeira which has been about our 8th year. Only down point is if you are in the main hotel you have a long walk to the swimming pool area.

Our fourth visit to Madeira, and the third time at the Regency Club. Things change, a little, but this is still a delightful place that meets most of all our needs. Since our previous review, the breakfast area has been converted, very nicely, into a lounge, and breakfast is now served in the poolside bar/restaurant. This is nice, on nice days, but unfortunately it rained a couple if times this trip and going out and across the bridge was a nuisance. They've also dropped the courtesy bus that used to go into the town centre, which is a big loss, although the walk into town alongside the harbour side has been greatly improved by the authorities and is now very pleasant. Despite these niggles, I don't think we'd want to stay anywhere else. It suits us perfectly.

We have stayed in this hotel a number of times because it suits us. It is quite close to the town centre and overlooks the bay. There are a variety of rooms and suites - we had a 1 bedroomed suite, which also had a lounge (leading on to the balcony overlooking the sea and the harbour), a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. There have been some changes since our last stay - the hotel seems to have separated from the Regency chain, although the branding was still evident. The main difference seemed to be the lack of a minibus to take guests to and from the town centre, which may well have caused problems for some guests. We found the walk to town and back pleasant, albeit hilly - but Madeira is hilly!

The Pool and restaurant are over the main road, reached by a walkway; this is a pleasant area to sit and have a drink (and sunbathe and swim too).

All in all, this hotel again lived up to our expectations

If you're looking for luxury you're not in the right place. If you're looking for staff who are paid for their uber professional smile and efficiency forget it. But if you want a down to earth hotel where the smiles flow naturally and the the spirit is generous and sharing, Madeira Regency Club is right for you. This is a very clean hotel. A bit of wear and tear but in terms of location and value it is top. There is an integrated kitchenette which makes things easier on the budget and very reassuring when you have young children.
