Windsor, United Kingdom46 contributions2 helpful votes
Hotel is superbly located right on sea front with access to swim in sea. The pool area is really pretty, lots of sunbeds with plenty of choice of Sun or shade. The staff around pool and Neptune’s bar are really attentive and quick to help you. 15 mins walk to marina and town where we experienced excellent restaurants every night and all really good value! Hotel is probably best suited to the more mature traveller, in terms of interior decor, entertainment and ambiance. We are mid fifties and felt young here but was a fantastic 7 nights of Sun, sea and relaxation which is exactly what we wanted!

Poor service with what appeared to be untrained staff. Excuses given was either "management problem" or "waiting for parts" or "things have changed over the last year or so" - In my view for the worst.

This is one of the more established hotels in Funchal, full of returning visitors and experienced, friendly staff. The construction of the new Savoy Palace - a Dubai-style behemoth across the road - has thankfully not had a negative impact. Indeed, it’s added to the drinking and dining options (Royal Savoy residents can access the hotel by walking across the sky bridge and using their keycards at the gate). You can also use their more extensive spa. However, for our tastes, the Royal Savoy is infinitely better. The pool area is its star attraction: two irregularly shaped and sizeable heated pools, with recliners both poolside and sequestered away in little private areas. There’s also easy and direct access to the sea for a more bracing swim if you fancy it. Poolside snacks are tasty if a little on the expensive side. The food is perhaps the one area where the quality dips slightly - the evening a la carte meals we had at both the Armada and Neptunus restaurants were disappointing for the price. Also, the breakfast buffet has great variety but the hot food was never very hot. The pastries were delicious though. The communal areas have been updated recently (not the rooms, which remain charming and comfortable) and there’s a new piano bar by reception called Thatchers. Any ambiguity about the name is soon put to rest by the cocktail menu, featuring such belters as ‘The Conservative’ and ‘The Falklands’. She came here on her holidays, apparently, and while I’m sure the hotel thought this was just a bit of fun (and indeed it’s probably a source of great pride for many of the English regulars) it put this adoptive Scot off his drink somewhat… Staff are universally lovely and helpful. The cleaning staff are excellent and our room was frequently and consistently tidied and turned down. There were some lift issues while we were here - two of the four main elevators were out of order - and this was problematic given we were encouraged to limit occupancy to two at a time due to COVID-19. These things happen, I suppose, but I was surprised the issue wasn’t resolved as a matter of urgency. But overall this was a very pleasant stay and we look forward to returning soon.

We stayed for one week and were able to experience most aspects of this quite wonderful hotel. Classic, colonial, genteel and sophisticated. Plenty of room inside and out to relax without being crowded out with other people. Great room and views out to sea. Staff were very attentative and couldn't do enough for us. Excellent customer service and on one particular occasion above and beyond the call of duty.

Great location, friendly and attentive managers at the reception desk, good food at the Neptunus Bar and the Armada Deck. A little bit long service at the bar. Comfortable rooms with a great ocean view.
