Perched on a hill, you have views from The Savoy Gardens which are hard to beat. The swimming pool is surrounded by a sun terrace, which offers up bird’s-eye views of Funchal. Then there’s the Panorama Terrace on the hotel roof, where you can watch the sunset from the whirlpool bath.
The property itself looks like it’s been pulled from the pages of a fashion magazine. The lobby is sleekly decorated with unique paintings, and the bedrooms are elegantly styled with a modern touch.
The main restaurant here serves a different themed buffet every night. Alternatively, if you want a more intimate meal, you can pay to dine in the restaurant’s à la carte section, or visit the à la carte eatery at the Royal Savoy Hotel.
Lastly, there’s the Magnolia Lounge, where the bar staff will personalise cocktails for you. Or, you can enjoy a quiet drink at the Cica bar or on the Panorama Terrace.

Just got back from a 2-week stay at this hotel and we were very impressed. The staff were so friendly, the whole hotel was spotlessly clean and the food was lovely. We didn't like the hill much, but we were aware of this when we booked and it wouldn't stop us coming again. We really enjoyed the entertainment, Anna. Natalie, Matt and Sarah did a fantastic job every night and were so personable, we enjoyed chatting to them every night before dinner and during the evening and it was nice to have something to watch. Matild from the bar was a lovely lady and really looked after us-my husband particularly enjoyed the 'cocktail of the day' every evening! We were lucky enough to be here for carnival week and enjoyed seeing the parade. We did the east and the west tours - wear your trousers when you go up into the mountain as it is cold. Came as a couple, would definitely visit again but would book for even longer!More

Good Quality Hotel Overlooking Funchal
Late booking at this Thomson Couples hotel (no children) was excellent value for money. Our double room was spacious albeit with a small balcony (just big enough for two chairs and a table) overlooking the pool and sea view. 360 degree views from the rooftop sunbathing area (where there's also a jacuzzi) are impressive. Location is up a fairly steep hill but there is a bus stop nearby. Buffet restaurant offered good variety of food. Staff (reception, cleaning ,bars) generally very good. Entertainment was limited but enthusiatically performed.More
Booked last minute for an anniversary break, Madeira is a beautiful island, well worth visiting and we will return having seen it. Our hotel was immaculate, great service, terrific food, however there are two caveats - the average age of the other guests and the location of the hotel. Neither of these things spoiled the holiday, they just need to be considered for others who might want to choose this hotel. This is obviously a popular place with older couples (over 50 and beyond), and no children running around makes for a very relaxing environment, but some younger couples may feel a little out of place. We had a great time, the rep Alex and the entertainment team Laura and Natalie were great. We bought a couple of excursions - one a tour of the West of the island which was very interesting and informative, and the other was a catamaran trip to go dolphin spotting in the Atlantic. Both it should be noted felt like much better value than previous trips we have bought in places such as Tenerife and Majorca, and both had their own merits. The location is the other consideration: the hotel benefits from a wonderful view of the Atlantic and from the terrific roof terrace, you can see all the way into Funchal, even see which cruise liners are docked today. BUT the hotel is on top of a very steep hill. As a reasonably fit young(er) couple, we found it hard going but by the end of the week, it was manageable. If you have any concerns about fitness or mobility, you may want to consider another location (although much of Madeira is hilly, so it may not be possible to find an ideal). All in all, a great holiday, great hotel, an exceptional rep in Alex and two new fans of Madeira. If not to the Hotel Savoy Gardens, we will definitely return.More

The Lovely Savoy Gardens
Been staying here for the last five years, which speaks for it's self! The hotel staff are all excellent. Friendly, helpful and hardworking. The rooms are large and always kept to a high standard. Everywhere in the hotel is kept spotless. The restaurant offers a large varity of food both at breakfast and evening. Our only problem was not to eat too much! We tended to eat late after 8.30pm and the trays of food were always replenished. We hopefully will be coming back here for many years to come a really lovely place to stay.More
What a bargain!
We wanted a last minute bargain and what a bargain we got! We booked the cheapest room they had and it was extremely pleasant to say the least. It was ground floor so we got a sizeable patio instead of a balcony - no probs. All right, it didn't have a sea view, but you see a lot of the sea in Madeira! As others have said, the room was kept spotless. Reception dealt with our 'enquiries' so promptly they almost beat us back to the room eg. could we have a vase, don't think the fridge works, we have forgotten our adapter etc etc. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The other hotel staff also had the same mentality. Cannot complain about the food. Got 'hooked' on their local mulberry jam at breakfast! Can't not mention the entertainment team - they worked their socks off. They managed to looked suitably devastated that we were going home - now that takes some doing! Just one moan re the tour operator not the hotel. The hotel is uphill from most other hotels and coaches cannot make the last hill (it's tight turns not steepness that blocks them). Taxis can make it to the hotel. Our tour operator kindly took our bags off us at the airport and a van took them to the hotel while we went by coach and walked up the last bit. This saved us pulling the bags up a steepish hill. Trouble was that we did not get our bags until two hours after we reached the hotel. Well I had to find something to moan about!More
