taxi booked through hotel didn't arrive at airport. only one bed made up, although had asked for 2. Bathrobes thin, one with a hole. Slippers one pair male size, though our booking said clearly 2 females. Ms Gouveia at desk very offhand, querying whether we'd actually ordered taxi, said office was closed would have to sort out in morning. Next day she said there was no email specifying those details. Luckily the following day when we had a copy of the email another very helpful girl was apologetic and refunded our excess fare. bathroom counter top was dirty throughout the stay and with no discernible extraction system. Room and kitchen well-equipped. The glass dome over the entertainment lounge was just outside the door, so noisy at night. Poor Wifi. Trip could only be paid by cash. Very unpleasant smell outside entrance door. There were no obvious signs for stairs - an obvious safety hazard in case of fire or other emergency. After searching on a couple of floors, I asked at the office and was shown a door along a corridor, which had no sign and did not look like a stairway for the public. I hope this has now been remedied and that other improvements have been carried out since our visit, which was a little before the date stated, as I have only just discovered this site.

There are reviews here that say they were not satisfied with the standard or service. It's a FIVE STAR HOTEL, if you're not satisfied, say so at the time. They'll fix it there and then. We go every other year and we love it. My wife is Coeliac so has difficult dietary needs, the hotel is always totally helpful - the first time we went the Chef himself came to our table and discussed her needs, then offered to make any of the dishes to comply with her needs. It's a Five Star Hotel - learn to use it as such and learn how to say 'please' and 'thank you' in Portuguese.

Yes we come year every year and yes it is still a great place to come. The rooms are nice, the hotel spotless and staff just wonderful. Meals by the pool are really really good and mix traditional Madeiran foods with some imagination and style. The Bacon and Banana sandwich or the Prego are just great. We will return.

We stay at the Royal Savoy as often as we can and I am disappointment to read the review listed before mine as a home for elderly people. We are not old and certainly do not like to be judged like this. There are many return guests as this is predominately a timeshare hotel and those that visit often take great comfort in the warmth and hospitality shown by the staff mainly, because they recognise us and we recognise them. It’s simply like returning home after an absence. We enjoyed great service and super hospitality from the waiters to the reception staff, from the owners relations to the managers. Nothing is too much trouble and although sometimes things take a little time to happen, if there are things troubling the guests, they will try their best to help solve them. Anyway the reason for my review. We tried the buffet breakfast for the first time today and were very pleasantly surprised by the array of choices. We then added an afternoon tea to the many experiences we have not had here. My biggest regret was not taking photographs as this afternoon tea was epic. I cannot believe I haven’t done this before and more surprisingly I’m amazed more residents haven’t tried it. The food was hands down so much better than Reid’s at a fraction of the price and the only draw back was perhaps the setting wasn’t so opulent. There was a lady playing a harp and the most delightful waitress looking after us. I’m sure if this were advertised and opened to the guests in the other hotels or passing trade, this could be a real hit. We for certain will repeat both the breakfast service and the afternoon tea again. In summary the hotel is for everyone and this week it has been wonderful to see young families and children in the pools on what has been the hottest two weeks we’ve ever had in Madeira. We cannot wait to return.

The hotel setting is lovely. Right by the seashore with fabulous outside facilities.The staff are very friendly in general but the feeling as a first time visitor is that you are invading the property which is for the repeat visitor. Certainly the male staff seek to please the regular whilst neglecting the incomers. The rooms are nice and comfortable albeit a bit tired and dated The piano bar in the evening is reminiscent of the longe of a retirement home with old world entertainment. The breakfast buffet is often tired. The hot food tepid, scrambled eggs looking aged and the bacon dry and stuck together. Needs vast improvement

Equally, we welcome your comments about the rooms and we would like to assure you that your observation will be addressed in the pending full refurbishment of our hotel in the near future.
