Spent four nights at this splendid hotel where service is fantastic and the staff so very helpful. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and quiet. Dined at Cipriani for a special occasion and probably enjoyed one of the best meals ever, with sensible pricing given the quality and ambience.

We unexpectedly found ourselves staying here for two nights at the end of of our Funchal vacation after escaping from a previously booked unsuitable accommodation. We called to reserve a room on the morning we arrived - could not have been more last minute! We were keen to have a true North-American king-sized bed - not a European so-called king. The person who handled our reservation over the phone was able to quickly quote us the dimensions of their king-sized beds - now that's the kind of service one expects from a luxury hotel! And a luxury hotel it is! Overall we did not enjoy our time on Funchal - happily our two nights at the Belmond Reid's Palace were a complete highlight. Our suite was large - but no a separate sitting room. The bed was huge, there was a pillow menu, the room was bright, very, very quiet and over-looked the ocean. Our service from check-in to check-out was exceptional! The breakfast buffet was vast, the grounds are huge, the natural ocean pool is perfect for swimming and my spa treatment is among the best I've had in all of our travels. Based on our stay we are now exploring other Belmond properties. When a hotel claims to a luxury hotel - this is exactly what one expects. Thank you.

We loved it! It's faded grandeur was totally charming! Lovely breakfast room with sea views and a top quality buffet breakfast. The pools lovely with beds each with a buzzer for service. Lifts down to the sea if you fancy a bit of sea swimming, there is also a seawater pool. The bar is perfect for an evening tipple with a fabulous verandah with beautiful views towards the town. We shall return! And we noted that many of the guests were regular with the staff recalling their names - one felt valued!!

My wife and I are regular,annual,visitors to the Belmond Mount Nelson in Cape Town which is similar in so many ways to Reid's. We were pleased to find the hotel much as expected. The Belmond brand can be relied upon for service and commitment to luxury standards. We chose a deluxe room on the 5th floor which was at lower ground floor level with its own semi private part of the gardens.....conveniently located for the main parts of the hotel We particularly liked the Terrace at lunch time and the Cocktail bar with musical accompaniment to end the evening in. Service throughout was exemplary. Yes it is old but I will use a description I have used before when describing the Mount Nelson.....I liken the hotel to a classic Bentley. It might lurch a bit on corners,huff and puff up hills and the leatherwork may be faded but there is always a Ford Mondeo. The choice is yours.

If you are in Funchal, then you must treat yourself to a High Tea on its beautiful balcony overlooking the Sea, Marina and Mountain Views. Dress up and go back in time with a first-class service and Colonial High Tea. You will not be disappointed.
