We love staying with you and becoming more human by the end of our stay. If you want to have a retreat from the world, there is no better place to go. Everyone who works at REIDS helps to make it a very special holiday with kindness and warmth. Thank you.

My husband and I shared a wonderful meal with my daughter and her husband who live a few minutes away from Belmont Reid’s Palace. A superb evening with panoramic views, great food, wines and service. Thank you to all, please give it a try

We stayed here for 4 nights for a long weekend in Madeira and thoroughly enjoyed it. It sa alike going back to 1950s riviera! The terrace area has gorgeous views of the sea below and the poolside is a perfect backdrop to morning breakfasts. The service was impeccable - the staff were happy to get us firmer pillows and my boyfriend was even treated to champagne and cake on his birthday during our stay! The facilities are also excellent. We tried tennis, aqua aerobics and had a massage during our stay. Make sure you book afternoon tea on the terrace early though - we sadly didn't book far enough in advance and it was fully booked by the time we got round to asking. There's no better place to stay than here!

Just returned from a visit to Reids Palace, our previous visit was fourteen years before. The hotel has changed very little, it still has that relaxed ambience and style that is Reids Palace. The staff are very friendly and courteous and will do anything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. A stay at Reids Palace is a must and a very important part of the Madeira experience.

Choose Reid's if you want peace , privacy and quiet and a chance to switch off from a hectic lifestyle. We were here for the third time to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary and our aim to have as little contact with others as possible. Due to the balcony with a wonderful view and sunrise, we managed it. The spa is a wonderful sanctuary and the gardens. I attended the Pilates and Aqua aerobics and swam regularly in an empty pool. We are not over 60 but enjoy genuine service. My appreciation goes to Capela in the cocktail bar who obviously has a special gift with people and the Concierge on the door who always acknowledge your presence. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, so much selection and staff always attentive. Thank you so much for making our stay relaxing.
