5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our first familytrip to Madeira. We booked trip through travel agency. Savoy hotel has been excellent choice. Rooms are really nice with proberly working air conditioning and cosy furniture. Room service takes care of the room twice a day. Pool side is really lovely with heated pool. Staff is really helpfull and want you to feel like home. Only thing that does not get 5 stars is the breakfast ..that probably because used to have more in scandinavian hotels. Thus just a 4 star breakfast.

I have to be honest I was a little hesitant about our holiday to The Royal Savoy as I thought this was a hotel mainly for older adults Yes there were a lot of retiring couples but family's are very welcome too. It is a peaceful hotel but vibrant at the same time . This is not the place for loud parties or groups of over enthusiastic kids it is more gentle and serene A beautiful hotel in a beautiful place with lovely staff who really can't do enough Madeira itself is a stunning beautiful island I just wish we had stayed longer We will definitely be back

We have been enjoying The Royal Savoy since it started and come every year for our 2 weeks time share. Standards never alter, it is always of the highest order. The position of the hotel is perfect - looks right on to the Atlantic and each day we lie on our sunbeds and soak up the ambience of the gardens and of course the sun which always seems ro shine but the temperature never feels uncomfortable. Evenings entertainments are first class, and round off the day nicely. The Hotel caters well, but if you feel like stepping outside there are many lovely restaurants and bars to pop into. Of course the best thing about The Savoy is our 1 bedroomed apartment, it looks onto the blue sea and is very quiet. In fact the whole Hotel is quiet, not just the excellent library, but everywhere else for that matter! Try it and see for yourself.

This hotel, with it's "famous" name, gives an impression of being a "Boutique" offering, I don't know how many rooms, but it's tall and thin, built backing onto the cliff in front of the sea rocky edge, so you enter from street level and go down! Down to the restaurant where all the pools and loungers are.. A lovely feeling and atmosphere about the place. We had a "buffet style" dinner with some friends, but it felt like you could almost ask for anything special from the staff if you had the nerve. I don't know if they have an A La Carte dining service also... Not styaed at the hotel, but it appealed a lot. Interior decor, outside spaces, staff friendliness, all oozed sophistication. When we left the dinner, in the indoor" lounge area, a small cabaret dancing performance in stunning surroundings, with gorgeous people attending.... All very tempting for another visit...

Madeira the Jewel of the Atlantic and our destination the Royal Savoy did not disappoint in any way our expectations of this holiday. This beautiful, tranquil, colourful, cultured, garden city capital was a delightful destination to spend our one week -15th to 22nd May. The experience from touchdown to takeoff was an experience to cherish and remember. It was more like stepping back in time into a very English middle class exclusive village except that this was a city.

One of the best hotels in the world I have visited is characterized by many features, including the best reception staff, especially the reception manager Mr. George and the rest of his colleagues also features the cleanliness of rooms and facilities I recommend it is a wonderful hotel and suitable for all

The hotel is perfectly set by the beach and all rooms are ocean view. Has a massive swimming pool and a restaurant that overlooks the pool and the ocean. The staff are looking forward to help. The rooms are clean and neat too; however, can come across as "old fashioned" to some. While checking in we found out that the hotel organises tours which are mush cheaper than the ones found online (like the half day west private jeep tour). Do note that it is advisable to eat the local cuisine outside because the hotel does not offer it on a regular basis and secondly because it is not worth it for the premium they charge. ( 160-200 euros for a family of four). I would also recommend The gold facial offered at the spa for people who need/want to try it (not middle aged people or kids).

Was recommended to this hotel and very pleased to have taken the tip,friendly efficient service,excellent location,food good and varied.entertainment most evinces.well situated for trips walking shops etc

We bought a 2 week timeshare in a studio more than 10 years ago and have been back to the hotel nearly every year since - if we didn't like it we'd be swapping with other timeshare resorts but have always found the Royal Savoy great. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped - could do with a bigger fridge - small niggle! Bathrooms large and ver well equipped. Food in the hotel is mostly very good - better than most of the local restaurants - and no more expensive taking into account the timeshare members discount. Would highly recommend the catch of the day (sea bass or sea bream) available at lunch times. If you're going to eat in a lot - and I recently had a stroke which affects my mobility - there is a good value advance purchase deal which makes them even better. Wifi nowadays is good. Main gripe is that since the group sold timeshares in the Classic Savoy above, and the rebuilding was delayed, it has been difficult - indeed almost impossible - to switch weeks when our timeshare ones prove inconvenient. Now the new build Classic Savoy is going up fast perhaps this will improve as the Royal Savoy will no longer have to accommodate those who had bought weeks in the new hotel. The pool deck is brilliant and there never seems to be a problem in securing sunbeds. One interesting change we noticed this year was a lack of pigeons plaguing us - they had been a nuisance in past years. The hotel now employs a falconer with what looks like a Harris Hawk to deter them ( I think he works other hotels too). We found out when this rather magnificent bird landed on our balcony!

We spent 1 week in June 2017 at the Royal Savoy, Madeira staying in a studio. The room was spacious with an enormous comfortable bed, 2 fitted wardrobes with several good quality wooden hangers in each. The bathroom had a bath, toilet, walk in shower and a bidet. Complimentary toiletries by Dove and a dual speed hairdryer. Well equipped kitchenette, nice sitting area leading to a spacious balcony. The many hotel communal areas, internally and externally, including a useful library are excellent. As well as a gym and indoor pool there are 2 Large pools. A vast amount of sunbeds set across the ground and gardens in clusters and separated by large decorative boulders which also offered shade as well as wind breakers. Across the entire premises everything was in good order, spick and span. The food was very very good and often exceptional as well as excellent value for money. This is a 5 star hotel restaurant that consistently delivered a 5 star service. I have a challenging set of dietary requirements which the hotel managed these in a business as usual way which allowed me to relax as I had every confidence in them. The staff in the main restaurant were so friendly,helpful. efficient and professional. Our bedroom was always serviced to a very high standard. The pool staff were on hand helping the guests to achieve a comfortable location with the amount of shade they required. The irons in the room are dry plates and I would recommend you take a travel steam iron( unless you use the in house laundry service). We had a wonderful relaxing time and will certainly return. I have no hesitation in fully recommending this hotel.
