First holiday in two years due to Covid and we returned to Reid’s Palace because we knew it would be great even with some restrictions. It did not disappoint and we will be returning again in 2022. Our thanks to all the team at Reid’s.

I have been here quite a few times and was looking forward to re-visiting especially since travel currently is difficult and Madeira was on the "green" list. But I have to say it was one of the more disappointing trips I have done recently. I felt that the staff were not especially engaged this time with the guests - indeed during my solo stay I don't think I had one conversation with any of them. Pool - this was as good as usual with plenty of help from the pool attendants and plenty of space for everyone Food - breakfast was a buffet by the pool and was excellent. It is a very pretty setting and the quality of everything right down to the china is very noticeable. Lunch - very disappointing as the buffet had been discontinued apparently "because of Covid" but since here was one at breakfast this didn't make any sense. It took ages to order a simple lunch so I did start to go out which was annoying. Dinner - quite hard to get a booking at Cipriani but once there it is very good Bars - the indoor bar area was never very enticing with heavy furniture and subdued decor but now this is hardly being used and bar stools removed - I guess "Covid" again but not true in other bars. So drinks and snacks are served on the Terrace now which is nice but clearly an inadequate space - hard to get a table Trips - I used to love the daily selection of outings on offer - it is severely reduced now - I guess "Covid" again but all the tourist kiosks and offices were offering trips so this made no sense. There are nice things to do in Funchal and Madeira but now it seems it is up to the guests to find these out for themselves. Mini bus - this was very useful for going up and down to the Marina but now operates at two (only) very unsuitable times of the day (Covid again?) so it was always necessary to get taxis which from the hotel sometimes took a long time. If the bus can run twice a day why was it so restricted? Room - I had a junior suite overlooking the pool - no complaints at all. Beautifully furnished, lovely bathroom and very attentive housekeeping. No alcohol in the mini bar (Covid?) but soft drinks only so I went out and bough my own - could not understand that either Overall - no-one asked me during my stay or on leaving whether I had enjoyed myself or if everything was ok? I found the staff quite distant - they would book me a restaurant - never enquired how it was - never made any suggestions for me and since I am travelling alone and have been here many times before, I found this quite lonely and lacking in interest. I am not sure I would return. For a first visit you will enjoy it but if you are expecting staff to be delighted to see you and chatty on your repeat visits you might be disappointed

The hotel is not only the perfect place to stay in Madeira with the facilities and particularly the Atlantic ocean deck awing to look and use but the staff, as with all Belmond properties, make you feel special, accommodated & important. Just ensure to take advantage of all that is to offer and they will not disappoint!

A great hotel in every respect - the location, building, rooms, gardens, food, and especially the staff. Not at all stuffy or dated, just lovely, comfortable and luxurious - and beyond our expectations
