We absolutely loved our time at Reid's. We had a gorgeous room overlooking the harbour and the twinkly lights, sunrise and sunsets were magnificent. Breakfast was a treat. We dined at Cipriani twice and once at William, both were exceptional. The staff are all exceptional, from Antomio, the concierge, Reis at breakfast and lunch and Tony and Suzanne at Cipriani....

I'm sure my little review of this stunning place will find its way to the bottom of a huge pile of excellent reviews, but here goes anyway. If you are looking at this because you're thinking of making a reservation and stuttering slightly over the price, I'd advise you to push the button. Sure, it ain't cheap, but what you... More

As a special treat, we booked afternoon tea here, whilst staying at the nearby Monumental Lido Hotel. I must say this was an outstanding experience! To be fair, it wasn't cheap, but the quality of the food was superb, but the service by the management and waiting staff was amongst the best I have ever experienced!! If you pre-book, ask... More

One of the increasingly rare hotels where you can get communicating rooms at all levels of price. Very comfortable, excellent lighting, bathrooms, armchairs, mirrors and balconies with views of garden and sea. And, most importantly for us, very quiet indeed. Other guests not unbearably glitzy which makes a change in a 5 star hotel. Staff very friendly, helpful and well-mannered... More

As the title suggests, the tasting menu we had was brilliant. We worked out that we had roughly 10 different courses with the matching wines (incl. amuse bouche). The staff were very attentive and friendly. The view from the William restaurant was superb before and after the sun has set. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Funchal who...

We had a delightful stay at this hotel. The hotel has maintained it's original charm.It was a delight to experience the high level of furnishings and decoration. The breakfast is superb with anything you want. Service was gracious and efficient but never overwhelming. The gardens were a delight as were the pools with their crystal clear water.

We had a great holiday at Reids. The setting was brilliant and the service from the restaurant and bar staff was excellent. However a lack of communication between Reception and the Concierge caused a few problems especially with restaurant reservations, some of which we had booked 6 months ago. The hotel dealt with the situation very well, but it was... More

We have just returned from our first visit to Madeira and absolutely loved it. This was mainly due to our stay in Reid's Palace hotel. What an amazing hotel! Very classy & stylish with impeccable standards. The hotel was huge but it was very quiet & peaceful. It had an unhurried elegant calm air about it. No queues at breakfast,... More
