What a fantastic hotel, without doubt one of the best I've stayed at. The rooms are massive with sea view, the staff were very conscientious and polite. Our overall experience of the hotel was brilliant we would highly recommend this hotel and are already planning our next time to this hotel.More

We have just got back from a wonderful week staying at the Panoramico Hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly and there is always someone around to help you. The rooms are comfortable and clean and we had a fabulous view of the harbour. The buffet breakfast is amazing, it was so difficult not to be greedy, the fruit salad is lovely, (so were the croissants, eggs, bacon etc.) Brilliant swimming pool and pool bar. If I had to have one small negative(and it is the only negative) it was the entertainment in the cocktail bar. We wanted to stay in the bar in the evenings but the music was pretty awful, so we had to go into town. This was a wonderful hotel and I would thoroughly recommend it.More

After spending a week going around the island, staying in hotels and B&B's of varying quality, staying for two days in Panoramico was a blessing. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, and breakfast was how breakfast should be. The hotel has many facilities for those who desire to spend time in the hotel itself. For those who like to go to the center, they provide a little courtesy bus. The staff was always very friendly, so I've got nothing but good things to say about this hotel.More

We had fantastic sea and mountain views from our balcony, and, we did get continuous WiFi in our room (332) once we had connected in the lobby, much to the surprise of reception staff. A safe for the week will cost 11 euros and is opened by a room card (once activated). Coffee and tea facilities are not complimentary and have to be paid for. The hotel was clean and very well run. The staff are among the best we have experienced. Very good choice at breakfast, especially liked the cheese omelette, and the coffee was good. We ate at the Paladar âa la carteâ restaurant one night and were sadly very disappointed. One choice of vegetarian main, and the salad starter took 45 minutes to arrive, even though there were only 4 couples in the restaurant. We forgot to give in the 10% off voucher (that we were given on arrival) for the Paladar. When we went pay our bill at the end of the holiday, we were told that the voucher couldn't be accepted, as it should have been presented at the time of the meal. It was my birthday whilst we were there and a bottle of bubbles was put in the room. Nice touch. As it is a long way to Funchal, the hotel lay on a free transfer bus every day except Sunday (last bus back to the hotel is 6:15pm); this has to be booked in advance, both ways. If you decide not to return by bus at your chosen time, don't worry, the bus will go at the time stated and not wait, so no problem. A taxi back from Funchal will cost 10 euros. Unless you are a hardened walker, the steep up-hill walk back from Funchal is rather impossible. There are dogs barking most nights and it is annoying, but the noise is lessened slightly by drawing the curtains. Top Tipâ¦.If you visit the Monte Palace Gardens, wear sensible shoes as there are so many steps, up and down, to contend with. The walk back to the road is very steep, but there are buggies that, for 2 euros, will take you back. Unfortunately, the day we went it had been and still was raining, so the buggies werenât working and we had to walk. We did go down-hill on the basket toboggan. Great fun. In all, we did 4 trips with Thomsons, Monte, The West, The East and the Heart. Very enjoyable.More

Great Views fro every room
Conveniently situated on the side of the mountain, affording you views of the port, the city and quite the panorama. Room was comfortable and clean. The outdoor pool was heated. There is an indoor pool with jacuzzi and gym as well. Although the selection was good, the food at the dinner buffet was on the bland side. The morning buffet is better.More
