We got to Royal Orchid through the RCI timeshare exchange. We were four adults sharing a suite consisting of one bedroom with a private bathroom with shower and a living room that had a bed that opened up for two people, and another bathroom with shower. The room overlooked the sea which was lovely at all times of day and night - and also quiet.
Kitchen could have been better supplied with dishes, cleaning materials. We had not expected the rooms to be cleaned each day so we were pleasantly surprised - that is, beds made, towels replaced.
The hotel wifi only worked from the lobby but due to our room location above the lobby on the next floor, about 75% of the time it worked from our room too.
Parking was fine -- although restricted in the hours you could come in. Perhaps our only real complaint.
Distance from both the airport and Funichal, main city, was just fine. Took two minutes to get onto the main road and then about ten minutes in either direction. Area was quiet, lots of restaurants around so you could settle in after a long day, supermarket not far away.
Madeira is a wonderful place to visit. We were there a week and found plenty to do and see. Hiking, museums, views, gardens.
