My partner and I very recently had a week all inclusive here and before we even landed on reading all the reviews on here we pretty much knew this hotel would live up to all expectations.......in fact it was much more than that. From the Thomson flight, the transfer, all the hotel staff including the shuttle bus driver who all...

after so many wonderful reviews on TA it is always a concern that we would be disappointed but we were definitely not and had a lovely holiday with the hotel more than living up to its reputation for good service good food and great staff. The free shuttle bus to Funchal enabled us to see what a lovely island Madeira...

I arrived with my friends here a couple of days ago. As we went to check in we were greater with a glas of madeira wine while we filled out the paperwork. With all inclusive one would think that the buffet style lunch and dinners would become boring and repetitive, but so far they have changed what's available each day...

Just back from a week at this wonderful hotel (21/11/16 to 28/11/16). This was my third visit this year and nothing had changed except for some members of staff. After the usual warm welcome at Reception and a welcoming glass of Madeira Wine my luggage was quickly dispatched to my room whilst I went for lunch. This Hotel is situated...

We visited the Riu Palace back in January 2016 and had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We have had further holidays during the year which we also enjoyed but which highlighted the strengths of this particular hotel. Some refer to the decor of this hotel as a bit dated but we feel that it creates a warm and luxurious environment in...

We booked this hotel not knowing until we arrived that it's aimed at more newlyweds and pensioners. Being a young(ish) gay couple, at first this made us slightly uncomfortable. Not that we prance around like queens... but if anyone dishes out the comments it's older people (from experience). However this feeling soon went and we enjoyed the hotel throughout the...

What to say that hasn't already been said! I'll try to give a few tips. The Lobby & Saloon Bars - once sat at a table, make sure the menu is in the upright position. This draws the attention of the waiters. Who, I must add, are very attentive anyway. Restaurant - at check in you are allocated either a...

Service superb, food fantastic, rooms roomy, location lovely, entertainment every evening - nothing to moan about at all. Airport a short drive away in one direction and Funchal a short drive in the other and main roads good and fast for sightseeing. All good.

Have used this hotel several times before and been quite happy. This time I have decided it's time for a change. It didn't help that I was ill during my stay, picked up a stomach bug which knocked me off my feet for a few days. My wife advised the staff, being dutifull Brits...In short they offered to call a...
