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 5-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.

An panoramic view hotel in Funchal
Location: almost at the top of a hill, giving a panoramic view of Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean. A bit far from Funchal downtown, but the hotel provides a free and regular bus service to and from Funchal (you do only need to book in advance your seat). Be aware: big buses from the airport can not reach the entrance to the lobby of the hotel so they will leave you (and your luggages...) at the road entrance! Up to you to carry up your (heavy or not) own luggages to the reception... Staff: very helpful and kind, able to speak several foreign languages (Spanish, French, English, German...). Rooms: clean but not very large room. Simple furniture. Balcony with views over Funchal and the Sea. No wifi. Fitness/sport facilities: a very small gym. Possibility to hire a tennis court. Two small swimming-pools, one in-door. A hot-tub. Massages at a fair price (i.e., back massage 28 euros; wings in your feet, 33 euros). Children facilities: none. At all. Buffet breakfast & dinner: very little choice but quality food. Worth to book a table at least one night at the Restaurant Paladar (you can get a voucher from the reception and pay the difference). Wifi only available (by free) in some of the common areas (as far as I know, only at the lobby).More

Just hoping to come back one day!
I have only stayed here once, two years ago (and left a review), but I just want to say: Talking with the family about where our next trip should be, they only had one answer: Back to Madeira! And stay at this nice place with amazing views from the restaurant. We loved the place. The staff were fantastic (!!), the food in the a la carte restaurant was sublime, and worth every cent. We had connecting rooms and the view from my balcony, at the back, was peaceful. (sure; there were some dogs, but I just loved the 'other side of town', with the banana trees). I will now just try to see if I can book a return soon!More

A Room With A View
We stayed here unexpectedly this summer following a mix-up at the hotel we had booked. The original hotel we had booked had double booked us and several others but this all turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we got to stay in the wonderful Hotel Panoramico. As the name suggests, we had a panoramic view hotel surroundings, Funchal and the ocean from our particularly large balcony and the room itself was modern and comfortable - perfect for our needs. To get this view, the hotel is rather isolated from Funchal and the main hotel district. This is not necessarily a bad thing though as the hotel provides a free and regular bus service to and from Funchal and the hotel district, with a wide range of restaurants is a short walk away, if a very steep walk back up. The hotel had helpful staff and great facilities - tennis courts for hire at a reasonable price, multiple pools, a small gym and a hot tub. The one downside is that WiFi is only available in the lobby and is not that reliable. The buffet breakfast was extremely extensive and delicious but, in general, the food served on site was poor value compared to that available a short walk away. Overall, a great hotel for those who want something a little different.More
Once again spent family Christmas here.....faultless personal service, staff are so friendly and helpful. Clean, comfortable rooms. Good base for walking and incredible views. We wouldnt stay anywhere else in Funchal!More
First time at this hotel but will not be the last The room we had was a seaview and to wake up in the morning draw back the curtains then watch the sunrise was worth the extra cash Yes its up a hill but they do have a curtesy bus also there is a bus stop at hotel entrance.You can purchase one, two .or three day tickets at hotel .If you walk further up the hill and catch the 48 to Monte you will see wonderfull views of the island The breakfasts were good the usual buffet style. The a la carte we found to be very good we had to eat there one night as the weather was a bit wild and we ate there three or four times Can recommend the chicken and pasta dishes also stuffed peppers. We had one problem the outdoor pool was being up graded but there is also a indoor THOMSON our agent were aware of this but did not inform us The hotel offered us a change of room because of this also a compensation voucher of our bill. Thomson have also offered .The heading we have used reflectes the quality of the staff we cannot pick out any particular member they were all fantastic My wife and I were people trainers before and this hotel could be a flagship for our hotels to copy It was my birthday when there the chambermaid informed reception and a bottle of bubbly appeared she had noticed my birthday card .This is how well they are trained to pickup on guests welfareMore
