We only booked this holiday about 4 weeks before departure. We stayed from 18th to 25th November. We chose this hotel for the adults only feature, the location and the fact that it is neither too big or too small. Much has been documented about the fact that there are a lot of steep hills etc, but really, if you... More

Stayed at the Savoy Gardens in mid November for the first time ( second time in Madeira) and will certainly be returning to this hotel. We were a little concerned due to reports of building work going on but thankfully none during our stay. With that out the way the holiday was faultless due to the splendid, attentive and welcoming... More

Just spent another week here in this hotel. We returned and were not disappointed, great staff good food , plenty of choices and a lovely clean room on the seventh floor with a Juliette balcony which had a fabulous sea view. Excellent hotel for value for money from Thomsons no doubt we will return again.

We stayed in Savoy Gardens mid November 2016. Fears about building work, which Thomsons had notified us of, were unfounded as there is absolutely none taking place nor is there any equipment or mess near the hotel. On arrival we were allocated a room with a very unpleasant smell. However, management did everything possible and moved us to a really... More

Third visit and this hotel still feels like the right place to be. As ever spotlessly clean, wonderful staff with great service and everything catered for.
