Enjoyable stay.

Returned last week Monday after a very enjoyable two week holiday at the Savoy Gardens Hotel. We travelled as two couples (cousins both celebrating 45 years married.) our rooms were on 3rd floor overlooking mountains. The room was kept very clean by the maid. There were always sun beds available around the pool. The view from the roof terrace is a must, especially in the evening when all the lights on in Funchal. There was always plenty of food to choose from at breakfast and evening meal. I am food intolerant & diabetic however I always found plenty to eat. The entertainment was very good with Ash and Poppy. The duo were OK. We did the four trip package which was very good, we are glad that we did the east side of the island before the west. We found that all of the hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. We used to walk to Funchal and have a taxi back usually 5 or 6 euros. We can recommend the café round the corner from hotel, they make rolls fresh and the Portugal custard tarts are a must.More

Good hotel - Great staff

Stayed for a week with my wife. The hotel was very nice with a good sized pool and on the roof a hot tub with tremendous views across Funchal and the ocean. We were particularly impressed with hotel staff who were very friendly and helpful. A special mention to the staff in the restaurant who were always on hand to help and advise.More

I will tell you warts and all

The Savoy Gardens is a reasonable hotel, with great views over Funchal if you get the right room. We had a view over the mountain, which is only any good if you are high up. Unfortunately the top floor 7 has no rooms at all with balconies - even if you get a sea view. If you go with Thomson/Thomas Cook - which the majority did, you will find changeover day manic. You room won't be ready for about 2-3 hours after you arrive, so take a change of clothes in your hand luggage. The rooms themselves are fine. The food is good - all buffet style, but plenty of selection The staff are very friendly and the entertainment team very enthusiastic Now for the downsides, which you may find picky, but to me are relevant: 1. You only get water and tea for free on day one. In a four start hotel I would expect it every day 2. You can't take drinks from the bar into the restaurant, but you can from the restaurant to the bar - a ridiculous rule 3. Apart from a bar of soap and some shower gel screwed to the wall, there are no toiletries 4. The hotel takes no money. You do not get a copy when you sign for food or drinks, so have no way of tracking how much you are spending 5. It needs a little shop 6. They put a rubber mattress protector on your bed. You will end up sweating in the night - we ended up taking it off and hiding it in the wardrobe And it's a steep walk down to the town and backMore

Lovely Hotel

We stayed at this hotel last week and I must stay we had a very enjoyable stay. Lots of comments that you could not get into the room until 2pm but who cares you are on holiday and sitting outside in the hot sunshine with a drink was perfect. Clean room (thanks Helena), nice food and friendly staff and to top it all up a great pool area. The drinks were pricey but you could visit one of the bars nearby which were a lot cheaper. Our rep Deon was very helpful. Poppy and Ash were great and the entertainment The Melodics were brilliant. Amy a great singer and Simba also very talented, He played the piano before dinner in the bar area which we thoroughly enjoyed. The walk to the town was about 30 mins but the bus top is outside the hotel at the bottom of the hill if you did not want to walk in. Would not recommend the Botanical Gardens at this time of year as there was nothing to see about from plants and some caged birds. The view from Monte was amazing. Madeira is a beautiful country buy if you do not like hills it is not the place for you. We would definately return to this hotel again. Thank you for a very lovely stay.More

Savoy Gardens review

Staff very friendly. Room very comfortable and clean. Public areas were very comfortable. Bonus was free room safe, fridge and tea making facilities. Room not ready on arrival. Felt quality of food deteriorated as week went on. Chef should not try to provide too much English food e.g. Shepherds Pie with very little meat, Apple crumble with no crumble. More
