This hotel is fantastic! This was our final stop after sightseeing for 6 days in Amsterdam and Paris (lots of walking and a long to-do list in those cities). Reid's Palace was the perfect end to the trip!! I didn't leave the hotel once, as there was no need to go anywhere if you didn't want to! Breakfast and the views from the breakfast room were spectacular. Our room was like a palace in itself - I loved the old-school luxury feel. The pool is stunning. The best part of this resort are the lounge chairs hidden within the cliffs. Most people choose to stay by the pool, so we didn't have any issues getting amazing chairs on the cliffs and some privacy. We spent much of our time at the bottom-most tip of the cliff - the ocean breeze was amazing! The lower plunge/wave pool and diving board were also fun on the cliffs. We were late to make reservations for the main restaurant, so I'd recommend making those as far in advance as possible if you'd like to eat there, as we were unable to do this. We did eat at the Italian restaurant and the late-night food option on the outside patio and both were wonderful. I can't say enough about how friendly, yet professional the staff were. Every person working here contributed to the positive stay! A note: there were not a ton of children here. The crowd (at least when we were here) were mainly older people and couples. We are in our late 20's and felt like we had to whisper much of the time, but this didn't bother us at all as we loved the elegance and change of pace after our traveling. Though this is a family-friendly hotel, I hope this is helpful in making sure parents aren't uncomfortable if their kids like to yell and play while on vacay! Also, used the gym and this was wonderful as well! The treadmills looked out over the ocean.

We stayed in a superior room overlooking the gardens with sea views. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. All food was delicious, varied and well presented. All the staff were extremely smart, courteous and very helpful. We will definitely visit again. Thank you to everyone for a very memorable stay.

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend break at this iconic hotel. Excellent service everywhere you go in the hotel and always with a smile. Well appointed rooms with fantastic beds. You even have a choice of pillows from the Pillow Menu! Newly renovated reception area adorned with flower displays from local artisans. The management have also made their own floral carpet to celebrate the current Flower Festival. My wife enjoyed the choice of swimming pools and the gardens and I managed a few hours of snooker practice. Finally, they provide, probably the best breakfast buffet I've been offered anywhere in the world Will we stay again? You bet we will!

Spent 5 days at Reid's. Generally my wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is exceptionally well positioned with a beautiful view over Funchal. It is a great place for relaxing with excellent swimming pools and a tennis court. Most of the guests seemed to be retired Brits and the atmosphere was like a club. The staff were very pleasant and the service excellent. The food was generally very good but because we like to eat early we had most of our evening meals at a local restaurant. There are many and they are reasonably priced. Our only criticism is that the coffee at breakfast was terrible, but then most hotel coffee is. We were not impressed with the Cipriani restaurant in the hotel grounds which serves very ordinary food at a high price and was clearly unenthusiastic about a couple who did not have wine. Nothing to do with the hotel, but think carefully before hiring a car. I am a very experienced driver but I took the rental car back early because driving on the island was far too stressful. Also, when walking to the town, you may be offered free trips in exchange for visiting a hotel and listening to sales patter. Do NOT do this!

This hotel is steeped in history and many famous people have stayed here. We booked beforehand after being advised to do so. Afternoon tea is served on the tea terrace which overlooks the sea and the hotel's beautiful gardens. The staff are welcoming, very polite and well-dressed. Our tablecloth and napkins were pristine and beautifully starched. We were offered champagne before our tea at €18.50 a glass and our full afternoon tea was €34.50 each. The finger sandwiches had lovely fillings, including smoked salmon and cream cheese and prawn. The scones were warm and delicious with clotted cream or whipped cream and the various fancies were beautifully iced and decorated, especially the macaroons. Earl Grey with lemon completed the meal which was impeccably served in such lovely surroundings - a visit to remember!
