A bit like staying in an old people's home

I got this as a last minute holiday for 2 so for just £800 with flights was OK. However although the building deserves 4 stars the food and entertainment does not. The food was perfectly edible and safe but rather plain and lacked variety. For breakfast I was refused proper orange juice unless I paid an extra 5 euros per glass, the dining room machine outputs a sugar laden liquid labed as orange but it was the most disgusting orange drink ever, not even the quality of supermarket value brands. I have no problem with the majority of customers being of retired age, but because of this the entertainment felt like it was at a level for and old people home where they would simply hope everyone would fall asleep and not complain, (quite insulting really). Almost every night a duo called Domino would sing live and pretend to play the keyboard to backing tracks, a slight bit of variety came with a quiz night with a prize of one 'drink' (wow). There was a 3rd party 'show tunes' performance one night and this was really bad far below the standard what one would expect for amateur dramatics back in the UK. Almost no serious effort was made to entertain as one would expect for 4 stars for no kids couples hotel. When we arrived no rooms were ready (for anyone from the flight) so management set about to maximise revenue and sell more drink in the bar whilst we waited for over an hour. Amazingly later all at the same time everyone's room was ready impliying to me they had been ready the whole time. No water is supplied with dinner so they do their best to sell more and you cannot even take a drink from their own bar with you to dinner. You get enough tea and coffee in the room to have one drink and after than extra cost. Their marketing call it a cruise on land. I have only been on one cruise and the standards of that cruise were much much higher in every respect. Pretty poor show in all, I don't think it would be difficult to fix the issues but I doubt they will. The general staff are nice; cleaners, waiters etc. so only fair to mention that, good to stay in if you don't pay too much and use it as a base only.More

Super holiday

Have just returned from a 2 week at this hotel which was really good. We were a group of four,2 of us being widowed friends. Initially a little hesitant as the hotel caters for couples we soon discovered it made no difference. We decided to treat ourselves and upgraded to a suite which was amazing! Fantastic views of the mountains and the Cruise liners as they came in and out. Our room was immaculate as was the rest of the hotel and every member of the Hotel staff made our stay special. Critics of the food should be ashamed of themselves as there was so much choice every day and we never had to wait for a table for more than a couple of minutes though of course it would be different in high season. Entertainment was great, provided by a hard working young team and superb visiting performers and not many hotels can boast their own resident opera singer. Adele is superb!. The only downside was the steepness of the roads leading up to the hotel which, taking into account the average age of the guests made it difficult for some and we did have to walk up to the hotel on arrival! Taxis were not expensive however. It would be a good idea for the Hotel to provide a courtesy mini bus to take people down into the center at regular intervals. I may sound easily pleased but have stayed in many 5 star hotels and this hotel was equal if not better to many of them.More

Lovely hotel

Have just returned from a week at this hotel. We were on floor 7 and had a mountain view with no balcony but you could open a sliding window to get some fresh air. We were completely happy with the room and view and it was kept spotlessly clean. The food was good and varied. The whole hotel is exceptionally clean, the views from the top floor terrace are wonderful and it was a pleasure to sit in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the view. The entertainment team were excellent and friendly and Adele's singing voice and Stephen's humour made you look forward to the evening entertainment. If you find the walk up the hill to the hotel daunting, stop at the Hole in One pub for a drink which will help you on your way!! A very good 4 star hotel and would return.More

Nice hotel with great staff

Our stay at the Savoy Gardens Madeira was spot on. We stayed for a week 17-24/11/14 in a sea view room on the 4th floor. Our room was spacious, nice and clean, and Helena (housekeeping) is the nicest person ever!!! Reception staff were very helpful, always happy to help. The restaurant had a good choice of evening meals and breakfast was really good, but the top 'award' has to go to the staff, they have fun while providing a very professional and friendly service. Although the weather was not great, we had the best of time in Savoy Gardens thanks to their great customer service. Well done guys, and Thank You!!!More

Colin S/Yorks Sept 2014 Room 403 seas view I must disagree with all the people who thought the food was very good they should get out more, Breakfast OK but evening NO too crowded food bland and not much meat choice. First night after waiting to be seated for 10 Mins got a table the same hight as the floor above had to watch for dirt coming of the floor on to the table. The restaurant is set out all wrong tables too close together bumping into people all the time. We dinned out for 8 nights and felt better for it. On observing the hotel most days at lunch it seems the Hotel takes more money on lunches on changeover day Mondays as you arrive around 12 noon and the rooms are not ready untill 1400 so they sell a lot off lunches (is this a ploy) but not the following days as people realise that it is cheaper to go out for lunch. Room OK maid fantastic could not do enough for us. We would go again but not to the Savoy for 3 star food also you do not need to book a couples Hotel as Madeira is not a childrens resort so any 4 star Hotel will do, but book B&B as the local restaurants are great. Go down the Lido area.More
