I really cannot understand all the negative criticism of this hotel. I agree the décor is somewhat dated but if you want luxury then Reid's Palace is the place to stay if you really want to spend that sort of money. Our room on the eighth floor was a good size with ample storage, comfortable beds, a very good shower,... More

The saying 'you get what you pay for' couldn't be more apt. I didn't pay much for a week's stay here so wasn't expecting much; so I can't say I was very disappointed. Having gone to Madeira the previous year, I specifically wanted a hotel with a fridge this time round, that was my only stipulation. So we went for... More

Sitting on the 8th floor with a sea view and drinking a glass of Maderia wine - what could be better. Hotel staff friendly. Loved the outdoor pool for a refreshing swim in the evening. Breakfast good. Two superb restaurants nearby and the Lido just down the road. 25 minute easy walk to central Funchal. Reads just up the road... More

If you want 5* luxury then I suggest you go to a 5* hotel and pay upto 5 grand a week, there are plenty of them in Funchal. If you want somewhere to sleep and shower, that is clean with pleasant staff, then you can't beat this hotel. We only did bed and breakfast so can't comment on evening meals... More

Stayed as couple May 2016 - can't understand review that says no entertainment. Something on every night - advertised in Reception. The folk dancing in particular was great - and we aren't folk dancing fans, but the group just enjoyed themselves so much it was infectious.

We stayed at the Buganvilia for a two week stay on a half board basis. The hotel is tired and badly in need of updating. It has a very worn out feel and the room next to the Reception area, which is the only place you can get WIFI, suffers from a bad smell of sewers. The rooms are a... More
