From its hilltop position, the Hotel Madeira Panoramico commands sweeping views over the Bay of Funchal.
This place has got a brilliant setting, tucked away among tree-cloaked hills and overlooking the Bay of Funchal. The centre of Funchal is a five-minute drive away – the hotel puts on complimentary shuttle buses.
There’s a swimming pool that looks out over the Atlantic, plus a smart restaurant inside. Also indoors are modern bedrooms, another pool, and a spa complete with a sauna and whirlpool bath.

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.

we loved the holiday, especially the excursions. we saw the south and west and centre of madeira.
we had a really nice room overlooking the pool, and fantastic views of the marina, and fuchall town.the hotel laid on a shuttle coach every day(except sunday). you just booked with reception your time to go and return. it dropped and picked you up at the same place,(marina).their was no tea facilities (unless you paid extra), we took our own travel kettle,and we used the market shop which is about 500m,up the hill,(they sell lovely bread rolls). there is a bus stop outside the hotel, which goes to the town centre. the hotel is quite high up, and can be very steep.the staff were excellent, also were the cleaners. on the pool terrace there is restaurant,with great views overlooking the town and hills. we had half board, the main restaurant, was clean and spacious,plenty of choice of dishes,the evening meal they charged us for bottled water.More
We stayed here for one week May 1st-May 7th. The room was good, the beds comfortable and the staff kept it clean. The location of the hotel however was an issue because it is a long, long way from the centre. A limited shuttle bus service is provided by the hotel to a location near the seafront ( but nowhere else). However it only operates until 6pm and not on Sundays. A taxi fare is around 6 or 7 euros each way. The area around the hotel is not attractive and there is nowhere to go for a stroll in the evening. The evening meals have been disappointing so far. There is a limited choice of main courses e.g. Salads and desserts ( much repetition). I would not recommend this hotel to visitors from the UK as the hotel , despite its 4 star status, is too isolated given the hilly nature of the terrain and the poor food.More

My very first visit to Madeira and lovely Madeira Panoramico Hotel
I canât believe itâs been almost a year since I visited Madeira for the very first time in my life. I spent two fantastic weeks there between June 29 and July 13, 2016. Some tourists may say the hotel is rather basic and there is nothing special with it, but I canât agree! The hotel is located in the suburbs of Funchal, the capital of the Island, in a distance from the city center however it is not very inconvenient. This is not a luxury hotel but very good. The hotel offers fantastic views to Funchal and the marina from every part of a hotel ground and from numerous rooms but also views to the surrounding hills and mountains. Tourists are offered a courtesy shuffle bus which operates every day, except Sundays (what a pity ï), between the hotel and the Funchal promenade (10 a.m. and 6.15 p.m.) but you need to book it in advance which is not a problem. The minibus goes every 30 minutes and a drive lasts about 10 minutes. You can also take a bus no 45 â a bus stop is outside the hotel (a ticket is not even 2 Euro) or a taxi (8 â 10 Euro). If you donât have mobilty problems and / or you love long walks down (and up) a steep hill, it will take you about half an hour to get to the harbour or 45 min to reach the Old Town. We came late in the afternoon and were soon offered a room in the main building (with a reception and a restaurant), over the restaurant â it was new, beautiful and spacious, both bedroom and bathroom. It had a large private balcony (a table and two chairs) overlooking Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean, where every day we used to drink morning coffee and good Portugese wine in the evening. I had a stunning view directly from bed which was fantastic! The room was very clean, towels changed daily. Guests are also offered big yellow towels which can be used in a swimming pool area. There is a small fridge in every room with a minibar payed extra but the prices are very reasonable. If you need a tea/coffee making facilities, you also have to pay extra (7,5 Euro for the stay) or you may take your own kettle. The WiFi in our room was good but this may vary depending on the position of the room. There is one more building in the hotel, by the outdoor pool, with numerous rooms, a nice indoor pool and spa and a la carte restaurant Parador. The outdoor area is very, very nice, with a beautiful garden, trees and flowers. The main hotel restaurant is ok and it has an outer part â a lovely terrace which is a good place especially for a breakfast and there is evening entertainment available there as well. The food is great, especially in the evening. We very much appreciated delicious fish and seafood! And last but not least âthe hotel Management and Staff â everybody is very professional, polite and helpful, but especially the Staff working at the reception desk. THANK YOU, MADEIRA PANORAMICO! I do hope to come back in the future.More
Hotel with stunning views.
This hotel lived up to it`s promised views. The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful, with a good level of English. We had a mountain view room, which was more of a view over gardens. Probably quieter than having a view over the pool at the front. The room was well maintained and cleaned daily, a tea and coffee tray was available for just over 7Euros for the week and was replenished daily. The beds were acceptably comfortable. We had a bed and breakfast package. The breakfast buffet was varied and well presented. Eggs could be cooked to your specification by the chef. The coffee and orange juice was however a little disappointing. We did try the evening buffet once and found it rather dull. The other restaurant on site however was very nice, and we dined there twice during our stay. There was a snack bar near the pool open during the day, a lovely place to have lunch and look at the views of the harbour and cruise ships framed by the bay and encircling hills behind the town. The walk down to town was quite long, and very steep coming back, but there was a courtesy bus running between 9 and 6.15, however booking was essential. The local buses stopped just outside the hotel and ran into about 11pm, we found them very useful. Overall an enjoyable stay, and we appreciated the little extra touches such as an Easter egg.More
there was nothing special with this hotel except the view was amazing, good staff at the reception very helpful especially the young men always informative with the location. Food buffet was a bit basic. we use the shuttle numerous time to get to the center. the location was fine even though there was no attraction near by to take a troll in the evening.Hotel have a homely feel and relaxed.More
