Wonderful Holiday :)
My Partner and I had a great time here in Funchal. We both were very happy with the standard of the rooms, spacious, always very clean and tidy. Apon arrival we did have to wait for about a hour to get into our rooms which was slightly annoying but it just felt nice relaxing in the bar with a nice cold beer :) The reception were extremely helpful and friendly too. The food was very nice, every night was different, many choices, and it was delicious!! Not to mention the desserts! Yummy! Where the hotel is situated it is about a 30-40 minute walk into Funchal it's self, but we didn't mind as we are both under the age of 40. Great exercise!!! My partner and I had a great time with the bar staff.. Ricardo and Jack especially, always so friendly and made us smile very much. The entertainment was great too, I personally really enjoyed watching Adam and Linda, I thought Adam had a fantastic singing voice and it was awesome because he could sing all era's of music and sound great! Adele and Stephen were great too! Adele sings like a angel!!! So very friendly and always had time to talk, and gave us great tips and places too go to in Funchal. Every night we went to the Magnolia Lounge and had a great evening, the cocktails were lovely and the entertainment was very enjoyable and I always had a dance :) thank you Adam, Linda, Adele and Stephen for making us laugh so much, not forgetting just how kind they all are. My partner and I would most definitely come back!!!!!! :DMore

Mixed views. If this hotel goes Platinum next year it will need serious changes.
The hotel is clean and the rooms are of a good standard. The cleaning crew had the hotel and rooms spotless. The food was very good and I enjoyed most evening meals. Big down fall is the staff in the restaurant. I found them very unfriendly and the only consolation was a young bar tender who made me and my aunty feel welcome each evening in the bar after our meal. Honestly- and it's not a bad thing the hotel is catered to people of a certain age (average 65+). If you are expecting anything else you will be very disappointed. If you are of a certain age you will be very satisfied. The evening entertainment was for older people and I felt it was uncomfortable to watch it - a young guy singing old songs and a keyboard player that didn't smile. I found it cheesy, however being 30 and understanding the hotels clientÃ¨le I understand why the entertainment was what it was (however- smiling is free). The reception staff were pleasant enough. However on arriving at the hotel we were made to wait for our room for a total of 45 minutes and they said it could take up to an hour and a half. I was quite shocked at Thompson and the hotel for assuming this was acceptable. I wanted a shower after the plane and my aunt had a bad stomach and wanted private facilities in the room. We were not even informed when the room was ready the only reason we had to wait 45 minutes and not the hour and a half was because we kept going to reception and asking. The hotel did not even give us a welcome drink of water and expected us to spend money in the bar before we had even checked in. The wait also delayed plans I had for the afternoon which I was not at all happy about. I have heard the hotel intends to go Platinum next year and I strongly feel that it would need massive improvements if it intends to do so. It is a 3 to a 3 1/2 star hotel in my view and I am well travelled. The price we paid was not cheap and its a Thompson hotel so I was quite disappointed that being half board you even had to pay for water during your meal. I thought this was a disgusting way of getting more money out of guests. The way the hotel is sold to you and the standard Thompson states it is I would expect water or table wine at the very least to be served during the meal. Madeira is an island of wine makers so the cost would be minimal to the hotel and as for water that to me is just embarrassing. We had a mountain view room with a nice view but the balcony's are very small. Air con was hard to work and if you opened the patio door expect to hear residential dogs barking and the service staff from 5am rattling around in the supply buildings out the back.More

This hotel has everything you need for a weeks relaxation. We had a mountain view room with balcony and although balcony small it was fine for the time spent on it, the sun was on it from late afternoon into the evening which was great. We slept with our balcony door open every night and although you had the odd dog bark it was lovely. All the hotel staff were fantastic everyone was friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Food was of a high standard, breakfast was fantastic so much choice. Lunch if you wanted was from a bar by the pool which did snacks, you didn't need to keep money on you as you signed for any extras you had and paid at end of holiday. Evening meal was also a large choice, the salad bar was fantastic and would of happily ate that every night. Hot meals some were good others not so good the black scabbard in passion fruit and banana was lovely and i'm not a fish lover. Puddings although looked amazing to me were a let down as although they looked divine the taste of a lot of them didn't match the looks. Hotel entertainment to me at times was like being in Butlins Adele has a beautiful voice.Stephen was good he played but likes the sound of his own voice and talked more than he played. The resident duo Koppel the lad was ok at times although he did get his facts wrong when telling about his favourite singers, but why you have your girlfriend on keyboard i do not know watching her at times was so uncomfortable as she just stands there not even playing properly. The hills around the hotel are steep as with most of the island and although i have walking issues i did manage them down and back but on occasions got a taxi back for 5 euros a real bargain. I would recommend this hotel to friends although if i came back to the island i would go for a hotel closer to the front as there wasnt anywhere in the evening you could go for a nice stroll unless you wanted to face the hills again. Plenty if sun loungers and you get a pool towel provided, water was bit cold but once in wasnt too bad.More

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay at Savoy Gardens and found it very relaxing. The room was large with a balcony overlooking the sea in the distance, it was clean, quiet and spacious. The food was very good with a large selection of dishes to chose from both for breakfast and dinner, both buffet style. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay in this hotel again and would recommend. One disadvantage was the incline up to the hotel but we found you got used to it fairly quickly.More

Good choice with ups and downs
Just returned from a weeks holiday A well run hotel , Staff were excellent very professional and polite at all times Hotel very clean all the time which shows how hard the staff work. Food we found of a good standard, always warm and edible even if you have some odd mixers on the same plate. If you have selected this hotel you have made a good choice The Hotel is high and a 20/25min walk from town. Good thing its all down hill Coming back is a different thing. After the first good climb it levels out but then it gets serious and everybody is flagging at the top we found best way back is turn right at island just before Reids hotel and at next island left hotel on right we were not told about in welcome meeting or bus or taxi both about same They say it going platinum next year if this is true it needs more work in my opinion its a bit of a way short of that. In my opinion it not quite a gold but its better than average Internet very slow and patchyMore
