The great part of this hotel is its front-line location & swimming pool area. Interior of the rooms crying out for a revamp; very old fashioned dark wood etc. Gym is a joke & should be closed or revamped Food ranges from good to great ; depends I guess which chef is on duty . Though the desserts are on every night 5 star+. Also since the weather has turned to cloudy & rain every nigh in our room we got a cooking smell starting at about 17:00 & lasting till about 19:00 ; not good when you are relaxing in your room before dinner. ( We were six floors up & not directly over the kitchen!). Comfortable sleep with nice beds etc. Maid service is 5 star. First time in Madeira & if we visit again will probably look to try another hotel.

Dear Valued Guest, malbeck3030, Warm greetings from all of us at the Royal Savoy Hotel & Resort in beautiful Funchal! Thank you for taking the time to post your review - we really appreciate your constructive feedback as it helps us to pinpoint areas of the hotel which may require improvement. Firstly, we are very pleased to know that you were impressed with our prime location as well as our beautiful seafront swimming area. It’s true, we are very lucky to be in such a fabulous oceanfront position with the extra convenience of being just a short stroll away from Funchal’s city centre and the many neighbouring charming attractions. Likewise, we are happy to know that you slept well in our comfortable bed and we will happily pass on your compliments to the room attendant you kindly mentioned - she'll be very pleased to know that her service was to your full satisfaction and was able to contribute positively to your hotel experience. On the other hand, we are sorry to hear that found your room and gym facility dated and hence not meeting your expectation, for which we can only apologise for the disappointment caused. We are pleased to inform you that we are currently looking into the possibility of acquiring new gym equipment, which we hope to have available for our guests in the near future. Furthermore, we will redirect your comment on the cooking smell to our maintenance team to take a look at what can be done to reduce this disturbance. As booking your stay on a half-board basis, we welcome your comments on the food. Generally, we receive many compliments on the food variety and quality that we serve, nevertheless, we will use your observation in a constructive manner to ensure our usual high standard is maintained at all times. We are very happy to note that you enjoyed the desserts… indeed, the desserts are just divine! Our pastry chef recently joined us and is already proving why he is a great new addition to our culinary team. We will be sure to share your compliments with the pastry team as we know this will serve as a great source of added motivation and encouragement for them. We realise that this stay may not have been to your fullest expectation but we are hopeful for another opportunity to welcome you back for an improved experience. Please know that a very warm welcome back awaits you here on your next visit. On behalf of our team members, our best wishes, and Muito Obrigada. Luisa Correia Hotel Manager

We love this apart-hotel, which has a traditional decor. It is is well run and it is easy to live there. You can be as independent as you wish or use the many facilities on the site. The staff are brilliant. The grounds are exceptional. The immediate locality of the hotel has been recently developed and offers a range of pubs, restaurants and shops. It is a 10 minute walk into Funchal along the sea front and there are lots of buses to catch outside The Palace. We will return next December to see the Christmas lights lights and outdoor concerts performed by local schools and clubs.

I have seen reviews that claim all rooms have a great view but that is not my experience. Room 1511 and I expect the three or four rooms around it have a view skimming across the roof of the of the lower part of the hotel, partly obscured by the scenic lift that is right beside it and with a tiny balcony. This is clearly a sub standard room which doesn’t even have privacy as the next room has a long balcony where people can look straight into your room. The hotel management felt no urgency to move us to the standard of room we were shown when selling us four weeks in a T1 suite but eventually moved us after four days of pushing. This is not what I would expect of a hotel claiming to be five star.

Dear Valued Guest, World traveller796 Warm greetings from all of us at the Royal Savoy Hotel & Resort. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us via the TripAdvisor review channel. We regret to learn that the accommodation that you had booked via the Royal Seasons Winter Package was not to your liking. As you are well aware, the accommodation of this particular package is for a T1 suite - comprised of a one-bedroom apartment which includes also a separate living/dining area, two complete bathrooms plus a full kitchen – these criteria meet the contract specifications. As you know the location of the accommodation is not guaranteed. As soon we became aware of your dissatisfaction with the location of your suite, our front desk team did their utmost to accommodate your preference, which was only possible on the Friday after your arrival as we were in the process of renewing the carpets of the suite accommodation. Perhaps for a future visit, you could contact us directly, we are always happy to advise all inquiries of options and location of the accommodation to suit the preference and likes of our guests. We are aware that it is difficult to satisfy everyone’s preferences, nevertheless, the full team here, staff members and management alike, are totally committed to providing the highest level of service and facilities to meet the expectations of each and every guest, which in turn create positive long-lasting holiday memories for all who visit us. On behalf of the entire team, we wish you a continued enjoyable rest for the remaining days of your stay with us. Best regards and Muito Obrigada Luisa Correia Hotel Manager

With understated style and quality service The Royal offers a taste of paradise to beat the winter blues. The hotel occupies a perfect location near to Funchal centre and with direct sea access as well as heated salt water pools. Highly recommended as a place to de-stress and re- charge.

A week in Madeira with friends for Christmas at the Savoy Palace. Despite a late arrival in Funchal the Savoy was alert to the delay and all arrangements were seamless. An excellent team at front of house was always ready to provide a helpful response to all and any problems from COVID testing to tech problems. The varied opportunities to make Christmas special made for an excellent holiday in a sophisticated residence.
