Just returned from two weeks at the Savoy Gardens, Very enjoyable. It says its a Sensimar, but I reckon they are a bit in front of themselves, as all the facilities where not quite up to the mark. But taking that apart, It is a lovely hotel, clean and well run. The views from the roof terrace are stunning, as...

Lovely place and atmosphere. Staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious, perfect place to stop in Funchal! However, there was little choice of food in the buffet, Especially at breakfast so me and my partner often went to local restaurants instead (the price of lunch at Savoy is quite expensive so I would definitely recommend Eating elsewhere at lunch)
