Our first visit to the Royal Savoy and hope to return again next year.

All staff friendly and professional, our room was large and comfortable and very clean, housekeeping even rang our bell one day to ask if everything was okay with our room.

Enjoyed the pools both indoor and out, only gripe was that on several occasions the used towel bin for the indoor pool was overflowing and no clean towels were available unless you went upstairs to the spa or went outside, seemed to be like that for several days in a row. The sauna and steam room were very small and the tropical shower was not working when we tried to use it.

Enjoyed lunch and dinner there, food and service excellent, not a fan of themed buffets but other guests seemed to enjoy that type of thing along with the entertainment.

All in all we had a very pleasant relaxing stay.

I have been staying at the Royal Savoy twice a year for the last 10 years, I have enjoyed the service and friendly atmosphere and always look forward to returning. You will not be disappointed if you try a visit and would not be surprised if you return.

This was our fifth visit to Madeira and our second stay at the Royal Savoy. Unlike the majority of guests, we are not timeshare owners and therefore choose to stay in one of the hotel's twelve standard rooms. Both rooms we have been allocated have been of excellent standards of cleanliness and comfort and more than adequate for our needs. The hotel serves superb buffet breakfasts. We prefer to stay on a b&b basis as there are so many excellent restaurants nearby on Rua Imperatriz. Don Amelia is a particular favourite, but there are also less expensive choices on offer such as Italian and Thai restaurants. The only negative about some of the restaurants is the lack of space between some of the tables. Booking a table in advance generally resulted in a more private table being allocated.
The evening entertainment in the hotel was well supported. It usually starts at 9:45pm and is on for about an hour. The dance shows were particularly impressive, as was the bar manager's memory for our choice of after dinner drinks!
The hotel is very well placed for walks in and around Funchal. The day time temperatures in November were very pleasant and although we had some light showers (and one dramatic downpour) we would certainly be happy to visit the island again at this time of year. Having stayed at three other hotels in and around Funchal, the Royal Savoy remains a firm favourite.

Room Tip: I strongly recommend anyone booking a standard room requests one on the eighth floor (reception level) as the view from the balcony is particularly panoramic.

We have had a time share in this hotel since 2003 and have always been very pleased with it, travelling out each November, it has been great to have sunshine and warmth instead of grey and gloomy. We have a studio apartment and it is always very comfortable, we particularly enjoying having our breakfast out on our balcony looking over the beautiful gardens to the sea. The staff in the hotel are very good and the hotel is always well looked after.

This was our second visit to the Savoy in twelve months, and we were not disappointed.
Well, the weather did a bit, but thats not the hotel's fault !
Rooms, public rooms, food and service remain of a high standard, and this year it was good to see the restaurant being better utilised by guests on a regular basis. This seems to be down to more competetive pricing, without sacrificing quality in any way.
Sadly while we were there, a fairly large storm blew in from the south, and the resulting ocean swell did a lot of damage to the plants and flowers that surround the outdoor pool area, as large waves crashed right over the sea wall for three days in a quite spectacular fashion.
We enjoyed an autumnal season banquet one evening, which waas quite simply superb, so well done to all at the Savoy, from the management down to the pool attendents - you are doing a good job.
hopes for the future ?
It would be nice to see the greenery that was storm damaged replaced, and even enhanced if possible, and its perhaps time for a painting touch up job around the balconies, where there is some discolouration and streaks evident.
