Returned last week from a week away at this super hotel. We went with Thomson and cannot fault any part of the holiday. On arrival at Funchal Tui staff are there to meet you. We were directed as to which coach we would be on. The Riu Palace is about 20 minutes away from the airport. A super hotel overlooking...

We stayed at the Riu Palace over Christmas from 19th December. The hotel was lovely, the staff were all wonderful and so friendly. The food and food choice was excellent. The service in both the restaurant and the bar was first class. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas and on Christmas Day even more special decorations/balloooms in the restaurant....

We stayed in early January for a two week break. We were fortunate to stay here at this magnificent hotel which surpassed all our expectations. The hotel itself is immaculately clean and very opulent. The staff are remarkable and very welcoming and the food was wonderful. Where else could you be served champagne with your breakfast and caviar with your...

I visited this hotel for 7 nights between the 4th and 11th July.  Arrived mid morning to the hotel, and the signing in process seemed to take a long time, as a lot of people arrived and only 3 members of staff checking individuals in. That said we finally got checked in and found our room.  We were pleased with our...

Miguel on reception, Johnny in the restaurant both helped make our holiday feel extra special but by mentioning those two I wouldn't want to take away from the hospitality shown by virtually all the staff there that we encountered. The wine was very drinkable and we were more than content with the other drinks. The restaurant allocated a table for...

We visited for a week over New Year and were delighted. It's true that the furniture in the rooms is dark wood and a bit old school, but the space and the storage were excellent. The food was of a very high standard and the inclusive package covered a good range of branded spirits in addition to the usual beers...

Just returned from a very relaxing week in Hotel Riu Palace where we enjoyed staying at this well run hotel. As mentioned before the staff are outstanding, attentive but unobtrusive and nothing is too much trouble. The design of the hotel is spacious and elegant so even when it is busy you don't feel crowded . Everywhere is immaculately clean...

Madeira is not the nightclub capital of Europe and the Riu Palace is not the place to come if you want activities or nightlife. Our room was on the ground floor and although dated in style was always clean. The bathroom was equipped with grab rails and a bath seat and an emergency cord fitted around at floor level this...

We spent here one week on the turn of the the year. The hotel is very comfortable, with amazing, very attentive and polite service eager to fullfil any wishes. The breakfast and dinners were very good; we felt completely spoiled on the New Year's eve dinner with it's very special menu. The hotel organised nice New Year's celebration/party providing funny...
