First time on Madeira and picked this hotel for the "Boutique Style" reference in the blurb. This sums up this hotel really well. It is fairly small - 119 rooms and so felt quite personal. There is a complimentary tea tray on arrival but, they wanted 3 euros per day to refill this - there was fridge however and so we bought milk and tea bags at the local spar and this was not an issue, the same applied to water, first one free charged after that. On the plus side you could order a newspaper for collection from reception each day for 3 euro - most British newspaper titles were available and it was that days paper - to buy yesterdays paper in the local shops was 3.80. Basically their sister hotel would download that days paper and print it out and deliver this to the Savoy Gadens.
Most other people have covered the food and cleanliness etc, just to say this was all excellent. one of the things we liked was no pressure about tips and so you really felt that you were tipping becuase you wanted to. The house wine was excellent and wines were not really pricey on the menu.
The pool area was great - no witing for bed's to be available and the panorama terrace on the roof with the honesty bar was also great. This was a good place to get the last rays of the sun as you saw excellent sun sets from here.
