Last visited 35 years ago and always my ambition to return.....and so pleased I made it. Reid’s is that fabulous combination of understated elegance that is a rarity nowadays. From being met at the airport by hotel limo (optional extra) to seamless check-in to a wonderful Classic Room with large balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Funchal port, the service and standards were fabulous. The gardens are wonderful, as are the beautifully kept sun loungers around the two main pools with call button service. There is also an exhilarating (cold) sea pool and steps directly into the Atlantic allowing you to swim safely which was great even in November. Lingering over the delicious assortment of breakfast options was a real treat to start the day. And my favourite evening haunt was the cocktail bar with amazing views and live music. The afternoon tea is still just as amazing and to sit on that balcony again was a dream come true. The staff were all friendly, courteous and helpful. I will definitely be returning. Not cheap but pure indulgence.

Read the other reviews and wondered how anyone can expect a doggy bag with all you can eat tea! Obviously €35.50 price to keep rifraf out. Other reviews say garden included, but not on every day, only some days at set time so check before you book! As for the event, it is event not tea, the excellent staff and setting are both worth the visit. Choice of 12 teas 12 infusions. Unlimited refills or change of tea if wrong choice made. Finger sandwiches of several types, so some you like some you don't depending on taste, but you can ask for more of what you like. Pastries OK but by then you are full anyway (I would not recomend leaving space, eat what you like of sandwiches and scones). Scones were light and nice but not proper english scones, but nice anyway. The cream let them down badly and jam was a disapointment as not upto the rest of event which was excellent so you expected cream and jam to match it. If you want to economies just go for tea and pastry or sandwiches in cocktail bar. But overall probably worth pushing boat out and going whole hog for afternoon tea.

Full of history and full of charm. Peerless service, excellent food and a comfortable bedroom with breathtaking views towards Funchal. Thoroughly recommended for a special occasion. My wife and I loved it.

The hotel was excellent but we never saw anyone from Jet2 Holidays to see if we were satisfied which surprised us a little. Also you should check what restaurants are available to you each evening as some of them are closed for local functions.

I don’t need to even review the hotel given I am in line with all the other reviewers. It’s a lovely classic hotel so not the place if you are looking for a modern setting. The location is perfect and there are great restaurants on the premises to choose from even a Michelin Star. What really sets this apart is the service. Just off the charts with staff genuinely keen to help. It wasn’t forced like in some hotels. We went on wonderful hikes organised by a driver the hotel set up for us. The hotel loaned us a backpack, insisted we borrow ponchos for bad weather, have us water bottles in plastic and ensured an awesome day! All was perfect and I am sure I will only be disappointed with the next hotel by comparison.
