Madeira Regency Club

Reviewed April 26, 2013

As many say, location is ideal with it only 200 yards walk down hill to the harbour; going uphil via back entrance brings you out to many restaurants and the main road into Funchal with Pestana Casino Park Hotel on your right, Governor's house and a nice little park before entry to Funchal proper; the Regency Club is 25 years old this year and furnishings and styles are related to that period; it didn't affect how we felt about unit 102 where we were placed with a large patio facing seawards and view down towards the Yacht Club and the pool area; food and service fine at the Yacht Club but not cheap - but that's typical of most of the restaurants in the area; remember to ask for the special menus all the time because as you might expect they always produce the full menu folders to make you spend more;we visited here on a time share exchange and it was better than many we've visited for facilities, location, staff courtesy & service;

Room Tip: probably most rooms face the sea and expect they have the best outlook; we experienced no noise dist...

This was our 12th visit to the Madeira Regency Club and 15th visit to the Island. The location of this resort is excellent . Located on the seafront only a few minutes walk from the harbour and central Funchal, our apartment on the 2nd floor was clean and comfortable and afforded a wonderful sea view. We could lie in bed drinking our early morning tea and watch the cruise liners approaching the harbour.It has a well equipped kitchenette for those who want to do their own cooking and a wide balcony,for relaxation. The Yacht Club bar at sea level is one of our favourite eating places and provides a wide selection of both local and international dishes at reasonable prices. The large sunbathing area at sea level around the swimming pool gives access to the quay and sea bathing.
The staff are both friendly and efficient and are sure to give you a warm welcome.
We can't wait for our next vistit!

As always great to be back in Madeira. The Madeira Regency Club is superb located with only 5 minutes walk to the city center. The staff smiling and service minded.
The weather was a little cold, but that was to be expected after a chilly winter. All in all another great trip, both Madeira and the Madeira Regency Club can be warmly recommended.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room in the main building facing the sea - great view and lots of sun

A/c is only on from 10:00 to 22:00, so our bedroom, which did not have its own window, was very stuffy. But a fan was supplied as soon as we asked.
The staff were, without exception, excellent; friendly and helpful at all times.
Our one-bedroom suite was spacious, with a lovely sea view, but the bedroom was behind the lounge, so if there had been children sleeping on the sofa bed, I think it would have been claustrophobic in there. Next time (and we will go back!) we'll get a better room.

Room Tip: Get the best room you can afford!

A week at the Regency Club is just what you need after a long, cold, winter in England. The weather is kind and the staff at the hotel are so welcoming and friendly,every time it is like coming home. The food is good and we enjoy the quizzes and other fun events. Sitting on one's balcony watching the cruise ships coming and going is very relaxing and the easy walk into Funchal is a pleasure.. We always feel very welcome and safe holidaying as single ladies in Madeira. There is always too much to do and see on the island that we have to keep returning.

The staff couldn't have been mor courteous and helpful.
The property is on the ocean very near the center of Funchal
The apartments are comfortable and clean.
Things are repaired the same day
We are going back for 12 weeks next winter

Room Tip: The 2nd floor is good because you can walk up & don't need to use the elevator

Have just spent a very good week away at the Madeira Regency Club. Staff are all very friendly and helpful and the food in the Yacht Bar is excellent - well worth the "Meal Deal". It's in a good prime location with seafront views near the old town and the updated promenade just a short distance away makes a pleasant walk into Funchal. I would certainly recommend this resort to friends and family, in fact we are going back late next year.
