    Location 5.25 /10

    By the seaside, 0.3 mile away from Funchal and 13.6 miles away from the airport. It is around 10 min walking from downtown and 30 min by car to return to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Out of the 337 rooms, 40% overlook the ocean, 40% overlook the hills at the back and 20% overlook the harbour. They are of average size and have a balcony equipped with a garden lounge. The furniture, painted panelling and golden thread inlays, have reminiscence of the English style which reminds the touristic tradition of the island. Nothing has been forgotten to provide good comfort: a lounge area allows to watch the satellite TV. Air conditioning, minibar and direct international telephone are installed. The bathroom is sufficiently spacious to include a bathtub; you will also find bathrobes, hairdryer and welcome products.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1914 and renovated in 1997, the Savoy has a lobby with a unique style in the island. Ribbed plaster columns support a panelled ceiling where is hang a very beautiful crystal chandelier. Many English-style lounges are located opposite a reception with a large polished wood desk. Its once modern buildings start to be old and outdated. Outside, a charming barrel vault surrounds the swimming pool. Extending on around 500 m², it offers sufficient space to swim. However, the solarium could be more spacious. Creating a narrow strip covered with floor-tiles, it forces you to place the deckchairs each against the other. The privacy lovers will rather go and find some privacy in the gardens. Remarkably arranged, they include numerous exotic species, palm trees, bougainvilleas and estrelicias which give nice touches of colour. You can enjoy it by sitting on one of the wrought iron benches playing a match on the huge chessboard which constitutes, with the tennis, minigolf, ping-pong and beauty centre, one of the leisure possibilities offered by the hotel.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The main restaurant is installed in a beautiful round-shaped room surmounted by a vast glass dome. Light, fancy setting (with marble columns, moulded partitions and flowers on the tables) and attentive service compose a lovely atmosphere. However, the food is very average. The buffet breakfast is varied but not very attractive. However, there are nice fresh fruits. In the evening, the theme varies daily, which allows to taste Italian, Oriental or Asian cuisine, but also specialities of the island. The starters buffet is sometimes fair but the hot dishes do not have relevance no matter the theme. The meat lovers will get the point and will not miss the grill-restaurant on the 8th floor. It offers brochettes, steaks or escalopes impeccably prepared. A second a la carte restaurant will treat the high gastronomy lovers. In a setting of impeccable elegance, all flavours of a French inspired cuisine combine to create a prestigious meal. Concerning prices, consider Eur 25 per dish.

    To know

    Built in the 1910s, the savoy is one of the pillars of the traditional hotel business in Madeira. Its neo-classic architecture, its gardens shaded by palm trees and flowered with estrelicias, its gastronomic restaurant brightened by a superb glass dome exhale the elegance of the palaces of long ago. The lovers of comfort, meals al fresco below the barrel vault surrounding the swimming pool, and active relaxation in a setting offering numerous relaxation possibilities will be particularly at ease in this establishment. You will then avoid to cross the street. At the Royal Savoy, a concrete platform has been installed on the rocks. Equipped with a ladder, it allows to easily reach the ocean. Mind the weather. You can swim only when it is calm, because as soon as the winds blow the ocean starts to wave. You should not then underestimate the strength of the waves nor the streams, especially because the sea beds are rocky everywhere. In addition, note that no watersport is offered there. The Savoy being 500 m away from downtown, it does not have a shuttle service. Finally, it is important that the Savoy constitutes, together with the Royal Savoy, a high standard resort. The totality of the facilities (swimming pool, bars and restaurants) has a free access for the guests of the hotel. This is what makes this complex one of the richest in Madeira with regard to sport activities and leisure facilities. The Savoy will close around April-May 2007. It will be demolished to be then transformed in a more modern structure.

      This unpretentious holiday residence has a beautiful view of the sea and the hinterland. As far as the facilities are concerned though, there is just a bare minimum... The Terrace Mar may therefore appeal to people searching for somewhere to spend a night with a mini kitchen.

      It isn't without reason that The Vine hotel belongs to the Design Hotels group. It is the first hotel we have visited to have adopted such a concept. In addition to the carefully designed communal areas, the decor on the 4 floors of guest rooms is inspired by the four seasons. Thus, we move from winter to summer via autumn and spring. Plus, there is a French chef in the gastronomic restaurant! Open since December 2008, The Vine hotel proposes a particularly original and comfortable setting for a stay at the heart of the city of Funchal. We would definitely recommend this place to couples!

Among all the whispering and murmuring, there is a certain rush to take your time to take your time... Between the sound of the waves, the clattering of porcelain and the sound of heels on the tiled floor, anything can happen in these bygone surroundings where, nevertheless, nothing is happening. Time, here, passes by somewhat hurriedly... The most recent work took place in 2006 and involved the swimming pool and the spa. The bedrooms, for their part, are also gradually being renovated.
