Hotel Madeira Panoramico  

From its hilltop position, the Hotel Madeira Panoramico commands sweeping views over the Bay of Funchal.

This place has got a brilliant setting, tucked away among tree-cloaked hills and overlooking the Bay of Funchal. The centre of Funchal is a five-minute drive away – the hotel puts on complimentary shuttle buses.

There’s a swimming pool that looks out over the Atlantic, plus a smart restaurant inside. Also indoors are modern bedrooms, another pool, and a spa complete with a sauna and whirlpool bath. This hotel is part of the Skytours range until April 2017.

Good value, great views, well kept hotel

We had a lovely week here as a couple, luckily we had a newly refurbished modern room with a sea view which is highly recommended (did notice some rooms still appeared to have dated decor - luck of the draw I guess?). Grounds and reception/dining areas are very pleasant and clearly well looked after. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice, good choice each morning. Great cocktails in the evenings. Outdoor pool is lovely, has fantastic views but a bit limited on loungers (July/August visit was going to be busy but second half of the week guests were 'claiming' loungers at 7/8am... Bit frustrating). Also Thomson (our agent) market this as couples but there were a lot of families and it was noisy around the pool... Again, this could be the time of year. I knew from reviews the hotel was located further out on a hill but this didn't trouble us. A 20 min walk to restaurants on the hotel strip, courtesy bus available into town and we used local taxis home from the Old Town/Centre only €6-8 with no problems. I'd definitely recommend a stay here and in Madeira generally; beautiful island, friendly locals, great food and alcohol (...although pricier than some other European resorts).More

Melanie W,

Great views!

We stayed 7 nights at this hotel. We were travelling with 2 teenagers and our quadruple room was plenty big enough for us, The hotel is large but we only really encountered a crowd of other guests at breakfast which was buffet style offering everything you could want - cereal, cold meat & cheese, different breads, Madeira cake, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, eggs done any way and a hot selection. The hotel is set on many levels due to it's location on the hill side, so a lot of the floors have direct access to outside. Our room (001) was right by the pool which was fine - we were disturbed slightly by people reserving their sunbeds in the early morning and the first couple of nights by a dog barking incessantly. We ate dinner at the hotel twice - it was a buffet style 5 course meal - lots of choice but quite plain cooking. The entertainment is very 'local' style. The hotel has so many nooks and crannies - it's worth hunting around for different sunbathing places. There are 3 places to eat - buffet, a la carte and poolside - service in the a la carte restaurant was miserable! Bar staff (cocktail, pool side and buffet) were brilliant. Happy hour between 6-7 is definitely worth bearing in mind! The courtesy bus is very efficient but remember to book in advance if you can. We got taxis back from Funchal after the courtesy bus service had ceased at 6pm as its quite a walk. The steps down to the Lido area (turn left out of the hotel and they are a few 100 yards on the right) were useful and there are plenty of places to eat there too. We also ate at The Flame Tree which is just a few 100 yards from the hotel on the left - a limited menu but very good. All the facilities at the hotel were excellent - 2 pools, tennis, table tennis, jacuzzi etc. On the whole a brilliant trip!More

Lovely hotel with a view

Clean modern beautiful hotel on top of the cliffs giving amazing views over the sea and mountains. Breakfast absolutely amazing so much choice eggs cooked while you wait either fried or omelettes so much difficult to choose. Also had bbq which was fabulous. Staff friendly and helpful also free courtesy bus to and from town every day very convenient. More

Amazing! Will come back again!

Loved staying at this hotel! I will definitely come back. Stayed 5 nights with my mum. We stayed in room 314, beautiful scenes looking over the sea. If you get a room over the hotel reception area you can pick up WI-FI! Which was amazing for us because I like to be able to have internet when i'm just relaxing in my room instead of heading down to the reception area. There is a bus shuttle which takes you into funchal which is a 10 minute drive. You have to book a seat as there are only 12 seats on the bus. If not you can get the bus 45 into funchal which leaves every 30-45 minutes. A cab from funchal to the hotel costa round 8 euros. You can walk for 25 minutes into funchal, its easier walking down but walking up is quite hilly so it may take longer as you are walking in the heat. The breakfast buffett is amazing, there is a chef that makes your eggs based on request, scrambled, omelette also with fillings like bacon, cheese or onions. The hotel has lots of things to do like swimming outdoors or indoors a gym, it has a sauna which is 5 euros for 1 hour and a turkish bath which is the same price. It also has a wellness spa, i had a 50 minute massage which was AMAZING! It costs 48 euros and you pay at the end of your stay. The hotel staff are amazing so friendly. The rooms are very spacious and cleaned everyday. They also have entertainment on some evenings. I cant wait to visit this hotel in the future!More
