Really enjoyed our weeks stay, 28th Feb - 7th March. Hotel was spotless and the staff could not be faulted. We had a sea view room with a large double bed, sofa and 2 armchairs. Tea and coffee making facilities but only supplies for the first night so take your own tea and coffee. Bath with shower over which was quite small, the shower curtain keep wrapping itself around your body, would be better perhaps with a shower screen. Balcony was rather small but had 2 chairs and a table, it got the sun all day, when it was shining! Boy, can it rain in Madeira, that is why it's so green. The food was varied and a good choice but drinks are rather expensive. Behind the hotel is a small garden which is lovely. The internet was free all the time we were there. TV lounge in the basement showing Sky Sports. The outside pool was heated and was enjoyable. Didn't partake of the evening entertainment (not our scene) but sat and chatted. Thank you to everyone we met, a lovely mix of people.There is a bus stop outside the hotel which will take you as far as the cable car station, just be patient, the bus will come. We would normally walk into Funchal and get a taxi back, which ranged in price from €3 to €7 for the same journey?
Booked our trips with Madeira Happy Tours, very good value and excellent guides, we did the West tour, Nun's Valley and booked the catamaran to see the dolphins, just wish the weather had been a little better, it was cold on that boat. Visit the White House pub for extremely good value and lovely food, don't forget to see Joe for good prices. Directions:- turn right out of hotel, cross road and go down jitty to main road, turn right, White Horse is on the right, at the fork go left, Joe's is on the right, carry on down to the Lido, turn right and in the small shopping centre you will find Happy Tours, don't go too early in the morning, they open a bit later.
Loved Madeira, even so early in the year, there were still quite a lot of flowers to see.
Would we return to the Savoy Gardens, yes but later when all the flowers are out.
