Not at all a 4* hotel! Two and a half at the most!! Overall a very poor stay at the Muthu Raga hotel in Funchal. Positives: - location - nearby restaurants - approximately a 35 minute walk to main area of Funchal - about an hour and 15 min walk to Camara de Lobos - great sea view room - clean room and bathroom Negatives: - The room was extremely basic. Furniture and decor is old and tired. - The lifts took ages and would easily wait between 5-10 minutes to get out of the hotel. Many times we took the stairs...from the 6th floor... - Breakfast was the biggest letdown for us. Quite a few mornings I felt that the cooked food was not fresh: the omelette had greenish parts on it, the bacon and some sausages looked somehow old and grayish, overall the cooked part looked gross. I didn't even dare to serve myself to something There was a small selection of fruit, some slices of the same fruit were ok, others were almost spoiled, which means it weren't quite fresh Decent choice of breads. Same choices every day too and no variation. From 8 nights bed and breakfast, we skipped 5 of them - Bathroom was clean enough but very old, stained and rusty - Some of the towels had stains - In the middle of the bed, under the sheet, there was a towel...I don't know what for..maybe to hide something...better I wasn't curious to see - Bidet only ran hot water Would definitely NOT recommend this hotel. Go elsewhere and get better value for your money!

Dear Ms.SimonaCornelia, We're very sorry that you didn't appreciate our hotel. Concerning the points referred, please let me make a few comments. First of all, please accept our apologies. Secondly, I can assure you that all the items served at breakfast are fresh and in good conditions. Of course, some fails may occur, but we normally take all the necessary actions to avoid them. The greenish parts it's parsil. Tha bacon and sausages are delivered 2xweek and we don't make stock of those products. We normally have 4 fruit types+fruit salad. Our breakfast all dozens of diiferent choices and it's free. We do not charge for it. Concerning the matress, you're probably refering to its protection cover. Tha bidet with hot water only, a maintenance issue. We'll check it out. Our towels are new and I'm quite surprised with that. We'll see what happened with the outside laundry with whom we work. Once again, our apologies and please accept our best regards. Jorge Xavier - GM

Arrival: The girl behind the desk was a nightmare, after travelling the last thing you want is to stand in a queue for 25 minutes while the receptionist checked in 2 people! The hold up was she needed printed proof of what kind of room you booked, the hotel should have this sorted. No apology, no welcome when at the front finally just stood there miserable. What a start! Room: Bed was awful and solid, got 4 extra brown blankets to lie on from reception. An older gentleman was working the evening shift a breath of fresh air so friendly and helpful compared to the girl at arrival. the room was very dusty and the door frame is coming away from the wall! Also got 2 pillows the second night as they were lumpy and past needing the bin. The young female this time was a different receptionist again friendly, warm and well kept compared to the first one. The bathroom is so old, worn and stained it wouldn't matter how often it was cleaned it never looked it. one of the bath towels had a great big hole in it. Breakfast: There was a decent selection of things available this was just a matter of choice and preference. The woman running breakfast was fabulous and on the ball. Pool: Clean and not too busy, pool bar staff kept disappearing I decided to read back through previous reviews to see if we were just unlucky and most issues have been raised several times before. No matter what excuses busy or covid the hotel has had plenty of chances to rectify the issues. Long standing issues!!

Dear Scott, Thank you for your review. Please allow me to make some considerations regarding it. When a Guest arrives, of course our objective is to make all the process the fastest and smooth possible, precisely to avoid reactions like yours. But sometimes problems just show up and we must solve them right away. This was precisely the case. A person asking for a room, saying that he/she has a reservation and don't show us nothing that support that. We must help and try to find a solution, of course. We have a very good team at reception and the one that welcomed you has precisely the most complicated shift, being knowned as very professional and focused. The door frame that came out, that's a first. I'll check it right away. We have good and decent alumnium frames, and I'm wondering if you really meant what you wrote... The bathroom has some years, but it's in a very decent condition. However, I do present our apologies for not suiting your expectations. Thanking you once again, please accept our best regards. Jorge Xavier - GM

Not the usual standard for 4* hotel. A/C not working, toilet wasn't flushing properly, fridge wasn't cold enough to store food and we couldn't use the TV as the cables were making crackling noises. The lifts took ages so would easily wait between 5-10 minutes to get out of the hotel. Decor outdated and not in the best shape. Staff were however friendly, good location and a lovely view.

We booked this trip last minute 2 days before and struggled to find somewhere to stay. We were so disappointed first of all the reception staff please train them! There is no greetings, no help given for information about the island (it’s a beautiful island they should at least ask guests if they want any recommendations), asking about how your stay is. When no one if around and you see reception staff daily not bother to greet you it is really sad! The breakfast is poor and the same each day so we went out most of the time as it was very basic. The breakfast staff were nice though. The air conditioning is the worst I have ever experienced owners of the hotel should really look into it! I moved room and heard others on the trip say how bad it is. The room is basic and outdated the pillows are terrible I had to ask for extra as they are so lumpy. However the view of the sea is nice and room is kept clean. Location is good lots of restaurants nearby and you have the lido too. If you want to get to the centre prepare yourself for a long 45 minute walk with big hills or get a bus down. During our stay the water went out called reception and was greeted with a very rude response so I couldn’t wash that evening and felt bad about contacting reception which you shouldn’t as a guest. The pool area was okay with lots of sun loungers and parasols too. Overall don’t bother spend more money and go somewhere that’s nice as Madeira is an incredible island you’ll love it!

Dear Jessica, Thanks for your review. It's not at all what we like to read, so please allow me to add a few words... I must say that I'm very surprised to read your comments regarding our reception team. We normally get good feedback and I'm sure that maybe due to the fact that we were completely full, we're not able to give you the attention you deserve. I honestly think that was the case. Our breakfast (that we do not charge) is a full american, buffet style. It has scrambled&boiled eggs, baked beans, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon. Cheeses, ham, smoked ham, 2 types of yoghourt, croissants, bread toast, rustic bread slices small bread rolls with and without seeds, 3 types of cereals, cold milk, hot milk, espresso, latte, coffee, tea, three types of juices. And fresh fruit. To consider this as "basic"... The AC, you're absolutely right, as we faced issues in some of the rooms. We've already took the necessary measures in order to solve this. The pillows, we have some alternatives, but we do consider that you also have a point there. We are located in one of the city centers, with lots of entertaining spots and if you wish to go to the old part of town, well, it will take you around 20 minutes in a relaxed walk (I'm over 50, by the way...). No way, 45 minutes! :):):). Just to finish, I would like to thank you for letting us know your opinion and to also to present you our apologies for not fullfilling your expectations. Regards from Funchal, Jorge Xavier - GM
