For discerning travellers who want the best, this hotel delivers over and above any expectations. Iconic building looks a little dated from the outside but inside it is opulent in a stylish way ... not in the least garish. Staff are courteous and nothing is too much trouble ... even oddball requests. One can see why this hotel has been and still is a celebrity haunt. Gardens are astonishing and the Cipriani restaurant underpins the words service and quality. Its not cheap but in this life you get what you pay for and this is certainly true here. Without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed in and that is saying something. Will wear my Belmond Reids Palace baseball cap with fond memories. If you are hotel freaks as we are and the selection of top notch accommodation is a cornerstone of your vacation, you NEED to visit this hotel or your life will never be complete.

We had a great afternoon tea sitting on the terrace overlooking the bay. Upgraded to champagne tea, which was excellent. Refills galore, great selection of teas, fab scones and too many cakes to was a lovely afternoon. Surprised they do not have boxes to go, which is common in many London afternoon teas. There were too many cakes to probably missed out.

Two years on from staying at another hotel, which was perched on a cliff looking over to Reid's - we decided that, we had to stay there having had a quick look around last time. The old and new surroundings equate to a classic hotel, which has some of the best views of Funchal. Breakfast time was memorable each day and as much as I said every night that I would have a Bloody Mary one morning, there was always something else that took my fancy - especially the freshly squeezed orange ! Bar prices were a bit steep, but we knew this would be the case. However, the restaurant was a bit out of our league and did not try - although many did. Our preference for a couple of nights was the Italian Restaurant which is in the same grounds. This is really nice and a very special evening - if the weather is nice, try and get a table outside by the railings. On a more general note, it is hard to get a bad meal in Madeira - look out for the family run restaurants great value and cooking (also The Ritz in the center of town - food and ambiance inside or out is great). As for activities - there is so much to do. Walking is a must up in the Levada's - numerous walks from easy to hard (information and trips advertised everywhere). Went on a catamaran trip which was very special as we saw 3 very big whales and several pods of dolphins. Well organised as two boats set off a few minutes apart, so that they could scan the horizon over a greater distance. Taxi's are cheap - but try the Tuk Tuk's which we did several times - same price for short trips, but much more fun. Took a taxi one day to the golf club at the top of the mountain - amazing views. Mind you the clouds can come down pretty quickly and what can be lovely and sunny one moment, can become quite murky - meanwhile back down at sea level (300feet) the weather is still nice. Back to our hotel - we had a superior room on the third floor- very nice - only one complaint is that there are not enough electric sockets - come equipped !. Rather misleading in the brochure is that all the rooms have an radio / docking station, which is true - but the docking station is for a ipod 4 - this series went out with the ark - almost !! Pool areas really nice - go down to sea level, really special. As for the facilities (tennis etc) no one seemed to use anything ? We used the health club nearly every day - hardly ever saw anyone. Thought it a bit ridiculous when inquiring about the cost of the spa treatments etc, when we were told that if you have 2 treatments, you can sit in their Jacuzzi for half an hour !!! ... is that to ensure customers are spotlessly clean before their treatment ? - Come on most people who stay at Reid's probably have a Jacuzzi at home anyway or are a member of club ? Anyway all else was great and the staff very friendly and helpful - special mention to the lady who looked after our room. Sorry I have forgotten your name, but you spoke excellent English and it a pleasure to talk with you. Roll on next time ...

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.
