This is a very luxurious hotel, with delicious food for every meal, sumptuous breakfast buffets, lunch by the pool and dinner chez Cipriani or Michelin William's restaurant. Also of course the famous tea time. Local restaurants outside also in walkable distance offering good range of local food too! Lovely room (608) overlooking the sea. Sadly poor weather prevented our enjoying...

Traditional but not old fashion. The Reid's is an Hotel full of life and charme. The Cocktail bar is just BEAUTIFUL with a superb view over the Funchal bay. Good service with exception of the concierge which is not "de luxe" Style.

We were lucky to have excellent weather, sunny almost every day and hardly a cloud in the sky. The staff were very attentive and our room was a deluxe and was excellent. We were lucky to arrive just before eight weeks of building work and alterations started to change the entrance and reception areas and various other works in the...

We booked last minute for this Jet2 5* break and we're not disappointed. The hotel is truly highest end and nothing was too much trouble. The vistas and gardens provide a magnificent backdrop and all facilities are first class. There are only two downsides. Firstly luxury like this does not come cheap. The Michelin star restaurant will set you back...

We were staying a couple of hotels away, and decided to pop into Reids for a drink. We started chatting to the concierge who had been there for 32 years, and he kindly took us around the hotel so that we could check out the Michelin Star restaurant (only open a few days out of the week, so we couldn't...

Sat on the sun terrace, with a lovely table overlooking the sea. The afternoon tea was indeed very nice, freshly prepared sandwiches with a variety of fillings. Scones (or scones, if more required), with the obligatory jams, butter and cream. Lots of choices of tea blends to choose from, I tried China Gunpowder which I liked, but I also had...

Afternoon tea was served in the elegant lounge of this old colonial hotel. A selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes can be taken with the tea blend of your choice. Views out to sea and the mellow sounds of the pianist leave you feeling relaxed and as if you've sampled a little bit of the genteel life of times gone...

We honeymooned in the Sheraton (now the Pestana Carlton) opposite Reid's in 1983. We said then that one day, when we could afford it, we'd come back to Madeira to stay there. Reid's has now been crossed off the bucket list although we'll most certainly return to it again. It is everything which its reputation for bygone age charm and...
