Hotel Royal Savoy

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is certainly convenient to Funchal and the town's amenities and has a super sea front position. All the facilities are 5 star but we felt that the restaurant wasnt quite of the expected quality. Whilst the breakfast was excellent, the dinner we had was very ordinary with a long wait for the main course. A number of mistakes and omissions were made. Errors were also made in our lunch choices. Nevertheless there are lots of excellent eating options nearby. Taken as a whole this hotel is an excellent place to stay.

Stayed last July 2017 had a fabulous time. Just booked another week in July with friends this time. looking forward to another great week at the Royal Savoy this year. Staff and service is excellent. Planning to go to the Funchal Jazz festival while we are there this time.

The Royal Savoy at Funchal ranks as one of the best hotels we have stayed in. It is strategically located within 15 minutes walk of the centre of the city and has first rate facilities. Our Junior Suite was spacious with ample hanging and storage space with a good balcony overlookng the sea and the small kitchenette was well equipped. We found the buffet style breakfast and evening meals excellent and the staff were at all times courteous and helpful. Overall we were hard pressed to find any fault and we will certainly stay here again.

Having spent my business career travelling abroad and staying in quality hotels I must say that the Royal Savoy ranks amongst the best. From the doorman to the housekeeper, from the pool attendant to the chambermaid, from reception to the maintenance team everything is totally professional. Restaurant and bar staff are extremely helpful and friendly and cannot be faulted in their attention to detail. The Interior décor is most tasteful and of the highest quality. Any minor problems are dealt with immediately and discretely as one would expect from an hotel of this standing.. The pool area is organised in such a way that it is always possible to find a reasonably quiet area to sunbathe or sit and read. Certainly top of our list of hotels in Funchal.

Didn't stay at the hotel, but as with a previous review, we went to the information office as they were advertising walks at a really good price. However, to get this price we needed to agree to a 90 minute presentation about timeshare in the new hotel being built. So we went along: 1. It was not a proper presentation and the presenter was not prepared to answer our questions if they weren't at the right time in her chat 2. She did not listen to us and was verging on being rude at times 3. We were there for over 2 hours and it was like getting blood out of a stone to get details of how much it would actually cost! 4. The atmosphere became distinctly chilly once it became obvious we weren't interested. Not an enjoyable afternoon and personally not impressed with the new hotel being built. Clearly it is down to undividual taste, but my own feeling is that its far too big and caters too much to timeshare.

Luxury that reflects the classic meaning of the word! The artwork is of a period of elegance and sophistication. The rooms are large and the kitchen is well equipped. Possibly the best pool area in Funchal, right beside the sea. The food is good although not to our taste. The fact a concierge opens your taxi door reflects the level of service from the moment you arrive.

Me and my boyfriend are in our early 20s so this wouldn't normally be somewhere that we would stay as it is mainly older couples and groups of friends in late 60s however we went in the place of my nan and her sister and simply fell in love with the country and hotel. You are greeted straight away at the hotel with the most lovely warm welcome from the lobby men, who take the cases to your room and greet you every time you go to and from the hotel as if you are an old friend! The lobby in itself is great, very peaceful! We couldn't believe how great every floor is, on our apartment floor there was a grand piano! The apartment in its self was great, so spacious and has everything you need. I was thinking we would need to get washing utensils from the shop but they had dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, bin bags the lot! and it is an extremely well equipped kitchen in every way. The bed was super comfy and huge! bathroom had separate shower and bath.The maid that we had was totally adorable too she always gave us extra chocolates and talk to us when she saw us around the hotel, we left her bottle of wine and a tip on our last day! Balcony was perfect size for two with a table and chairs and a sun lounger. We had an amazing view looking out onto the pool and the ocean. There are also two huge pools an indoor pool a kids pool and a hot tub kind of pool. We travelled to Madeira in December so although it was sunny and warm it wasn't quite warm enough to heat the pools so we only managed to use the tub and the indoor pool which were great and we did have one quick jump into one of the main pools but they were far to cold. There is a cool little lighthouse thing that you can go in and go up to the top to look out at the sea on the hotel ground floor which is cool. There is also so much to do in Madeira, the only thing i would say is that there is so much walking and many hills that in can imagine would be hard work for some people so just bare hat in mind. All in all we absolutely adored our first visit to Madeira and are going to come again when the weather is warmer in summer and we can't wait.

This is an all-suite hotel with fully appointed, comfortable rooms, amazingly comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen! Beautiful ocean view from the room. The service is responsive and professional. Breakfast offerings are ample and delicious. Would definitely stay again!

Excellent location, just 10 minutes walk from down town. Nice pool section outdoors and inside. Classic setting, excellent service and very helpful & professional staff. Breakfast provided wide selection and also authentic fruits etc. Very peacefull at least before Christmas.

Another lovely holiday. Staff make it so special. Georgiou & Bruno a joy in the bar & Miguel always efficient & welcoming in the dining room. Looking forward to our next visit. Food good as usual & reasonably priced. A great venue for couples & family.
