The pool is high up, set in a sun-trap terrace that makes the most of views over the Atlantic. There are sunbeds up here to lounge on, plus some parasols for a bit of shade.
Expect international favourites along side traditional Madeiran dishes. There's a waiter service at lunch time and an optional à la carte menu for an extra charge.
Great for afternoon coffees, pre-dinner drinks and night caps.

Views are amazing
Firstly I was a little disappointed to be told our room was not ready on our arrival, which was around 2pm, it took a further 2 + hours before we got the key. My first impression of the hotel (apart from the steep walk up to it) was very good. Once in our room (312) it was spotlessly clean, if a little dated, we had a partial sea view to one side & some local houses in front, of which the barking dogs live, didn't bother us especially but I can see it would some people! There was a clock which chimed every 30 mins & loud music most of the day. However all functioned well & was as expected, apart from the bed! The mattress was so hard I had to check it was actually a mattress!! I padded it out with blankets found in the wardrobe but it did make for uncomftable sleeping. The pool area provided the most amazing views, again was well equipped & very clean, we spent most of our week by the pool & never had a problem getting a bed, although the sun does go behind the hotel around 2-3 pm so not many people are around after that time. The pool bar staff were my favourite, always polite & helpful, pool snacks were good & well priced. We had breakfast included which was typical hotel buffet breakfast, we ate at the Restaurant one night which was very nice, the evening buffet I found expensive for what you got, ate there twice, both times was a little Dissapointed. The courtesy bus into town was very good, we used this twice, lots of shops & places to eat, I recommend the CR7 restaurant & the ice cream place a few doors down. Myself & my 16 yr old daughter wanted a fairly chilled week & this is exactly what we got, we had a great time. I wouldn't say this hotel is geared around children or toddlers & could be a little boring. The entertainment was a little bizzare, a man playing an organ most nights 😂 Madeira was beautiful, stunning views, nice people, a little hillier than an expected I must say!! All in all a great oholiday.More
Very Friendly hotel
We stayed at the Madeira Panoramico hotel for a week, the hotel is situated in the hotel area of Funchal. It is situated on a large hill and in a quiet built up area, with shops a five minute walk up the road. The lido area a 20 minute walk or a 7€ taxi journey is packed with very good restaurants and delivers to all needs. The hotel itself is kept very clean and simple, the rooms are relatively modern and quite large, the TV has many channels, and the mini-bar is good. We would recommend a sea view room as the views are stunning but they are views of the mountains from other rooms. We enjoyed the breakfasts with good live cooking and food for all. The staff were simply excellent, all kind and very helpful. The hotels facilities were good as well, the tennis court was a good price, the gym was good, and the indoor pool and jacuzzi were good alternatives to the cold outdoor pool! The live entertainment was a little odd, some nights it was good, some it was dreadful, and it did go on a little late. We only had a few niggles, there were not quite enough sun beds, they use the games room as a conference room and therefore not always available, and the food at the pool bar is a little pricey. However I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would say the island is a must see!More
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very aptly named hotel. We had a sea view room which more than lived up to expectations. It was newly refurbished so was very chic, clean & comfortable with a big bathroom containing a lovely walk in shower. The swimming pool area was lovely overlooking the sea with plenty of sunbeds and a pool bar which did snacks at lunchtime for a reasonable price. The entertainment at night wasn't really up to much but the bar was comfortable enough with a nice terrace. We took full advantage of the happy hour cocktails which were very nice but strong! The staff were all really pleasant and helpful. Although this hotel is quite high up & it"s a bit of a walk into town it is worth it for the views. We would highly recommend a stay here.More
Stayed here for a week with breakfast included. Amazing value, and restaurant/bar prices competitive, sometimes better than, the town centre. Bus shuttle service was brilliant, always space for us, including last minute. Staff all speak excellent English and can't help enough! They were absolutely brilliant and made the stay that extra bit special. Night time entertainment was also brilliant, everyone gathers in the outside bar area around 9pm and it's a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Can't recommend this place enough, especially as the price is so much better than a lot of hotels this standard. Thanks for an amazing stay! More
Very good experience
I visited Panoramico at the end of May during the half term holiday with my son (8 yrs old) We absolutely loved the holiday, the hotel has stunning views and the staff at reception are brilliant! We had breakfast everyday in the buffet restaurant and thought it was brilliant with plenty of variety! We didn't think much to the evening meal there however so we chose to eat out or mostly used the a la carte restaurant which was so much better but obviously more expensive however not too much! The indoor pool and jacuzzi rarely get used so myself and my son made good use of these mostly having them all day without anyone coming in. The outdoor pool has breathtaking views and lovely and quiet to relax by. My son was one of the only children staying even though it was half term however there was plenty to do and he loved it but its probably not ideal for people wanting to keep young children entertained. There is plenty to do on the island and we booked a few trips which we both thoroughly enjoyed! My son absolutely loved the CR7 museum and we also visited Ronaldos shop by taxi and met his sister! The hotels shuttle bus is a very good service, the driver is very friendly and we always managed to get a space when booking on, the shuttle bus runs all day everyday except sundays and is perfect for getting you to the main strip and back. There are lots of restaurants and things to do it the area. We used the laundry service at the hotel which i found excellent! Clothes returned within 48 hrs and very well priced. We didnt pay for a sea view room but still got one and the view was lovely! Most people staying at the hotel go out early and don't return till late so its very quiet and relaxing during the day, in the evenings there is some entertainment in the cocktail bar we heard abit but its not too noisy! The yellow open top tour bus leaves from right outside the hotel which i found very handy! You can buy the ticket from reception too! Overall we really enjoyed our stay, met some lovely people and would definitely go again! More
