This period hotel it's on the cliff side about Funchal, it's very nice with great staff. The food is expensive so be prepared to visit the excellent restaurants close by. The pool s are all very nice on the hot days. Enjoy your holiday.

We had the most wonderful week as guests at this beautiful hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are comfortable with lovely views. Food is fantastic. Gardens are amazing and poolside with sunbathing areas built into Cliffside perfect for finding quiet private areas. I cannot praise the staff enough for their politeness and willingness to do what they can to make your stay memorable. Special mention must go to Sindy our waitress at breakfast and in the fabulous Michelin star restaurant who has the perfect blend of professionalism and friendly sense of humour.

We stayed for 2 weeks, never before have we bee able to relax so quickly into our holiday. We had enjoyed a long weekend at Reid's before as a result of an incentive from my husbands work and always vowed to return with our daughter aged now 14. From check in to departure we could not have asked for more. Dinner at Ciprinami on our first night was excellent, even went with friends again a few nights later and again was excellent. Nothing too much trouble from all staff from rooms to pool and restaurant, service is attentive but unobtrusive. Definitely worth a trip.

We visited Madeira for the first time in 2016. It wasn't somewhere we had thought about visiting, but we decided to have a family holiday to celebrate my mum's 70th Birthday. From the moment we arrived, we knew that we would return. Madeira is a very special island with a very special charm. We loved the hotel we had booked and could not fault it. Whilst in Madeira, we booked a garden tour and Afternoon Tea at Reid's Palace. It was from this that we were intrigued about the history of the hotel and decided to have a few days at the end of our holiday to Porto and Lisbon, relaxing in the hotel. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we had stepped straight into a dream. The service on arrival was exceptional and our room upgraded which gave us views which were simply breathtaking. I could have sat on the balcony all day just admiring those views. Our room was like it had been taken from an English stately home and put into the hotel. Full of charm and character yet with all the amenities you could wish for. The bed was divine and waking up to such wonderful views. I really cannot do this hotel justice with a review. The hotel is very old but has been maintained to give it an overwhelming sense of luxury and charm, but somehow they are able to make you feel relaxed at the same time. Everyone was so incredibly friendly and once they knew your name, they did not forget it. We arrived on the day of the Manager's Cocktail Party so we went to this on our first evening and chatted with Ciriaco and his staff and met some wonderful guests. It was a wonderfully relaxed evening with drinks and canapes. A perfect start to our stay. The breakfast area is by the pool, overlooking the ocean which is wonderful. As is the choice and quality of food and drinks on offer. I have a dairy allergy and am also gluten intollerant, but this was no problem for the staff and the next day, the chef had made some additional pastries for me to complement some of the best gluten free bread I have ever had! We spent a lot of time on the rocks, diving into the ocean which was surprisingly warm. I am not very good at relaxing, but in this hotel, you can't help but do so! We attended a complimentary Madeira wine tasting session which was fun, I also had a wonderful massage in the spa, overlooking the ocean. Everything we experienced continued to better anything we had ever experienced previously. We have travelled throughout the world and stayed in some very nice hotels, but Reid's Palace is unique. You genuinely feel like you have stepped back 100 years and are living in someone else's life for a few days and are made to feel so incredibly special. I found there to be no pretence in the hotel which is unusual for a hotel of this calibre and is one of the things I loved most. Being able to relax at all times for me was a treat. We spent our last evening at Cipriano's which is an Italian restaurant belonging to Reid's. It sits high on the rocks with unbroken ocean views. Again, we had a wonderful evening with the chef catering to my needs without hesitation. It was a truly wonderful evening and very much ended our short few days perfectly. At checkout, to say I felt sad is an understatement. Normally I feel ready to return home at the end of our holidays, but for the first time ever, I felt I could have stayed in this wonderful environment much longer. There is no one thing that sets this hotel apart from all the rest, it is a combination of all the effort from the staff to maintain such exceptional service at all times, along with maintaining the charm and history of the beautiful building that is Reid's Palace. If you ask yourself is it worth the extra money to stay here over some of the other lovely hotels on the Island - my answer would be - without doubt it is worth it and I would recommend the hotel in a heartbeat. Photo's reviews, write ups etc do not do this hotel justice. If you are lucky enough to experience it, you will have wonderful memories made that will last a lifetime. We will be returning as soon as we can. Thank you to Ciriaco, Alcino and all the wonderful staff who make this hotel what it is.

My wife and I looked forward to afternoon tea on the terrace at Reid's and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we walked through the entrance door of the hotel, we were bowled over with the beauty and old world charm of Reid's. Previous TA reviewers have described in detail the food and infusions on offer, so I'll simply say I agreed with all of their positive comments. Staff, understandably, were so professional it was a joy to be attended by them, never ceasing to ask guests if they would wish for any more (of everything). Turn over the china tea service and you will see the Wedgwood hallmark.The views from Reid's terrace were spectacular (notwithstanding the offshore supply boat currently standing idle off Funchal's coast). After tea we made our own tour of the hotel's public areas, then down to the hotel shop to purchase Reid's own tea blend in souvenir caddies, for our family back home.
