Belmod Reid's Palace really is a palace
Stayed at the Reid's and it was everything we'd heard it would be. Such a lovely place, with so many nooks and crannies to relax in privacy and sit and read or sun bathe. Fantastic pool facilities, especially the really big blue one with all the fish in it and the tides and things. Meals were excellent and very reasonably priced. Club sandwiches were massive and deffo not a snack. I'm a coeliac freak so had Gluten free everything and this ranged from excellent breakfast cakes, including my first freak friendly pains au chocalate and the GF chicken club sandwich and chips led to me having a restraining order from stalking the chef. Rooms were clean and spacious, even with the little novelty of having a UK plug socket !! Excellent stay.
The Belmond experiences are always a pleasure and Reid’s Palace is no exception. The Pink Palace is situated on a rocky outcrop in Funchal with stunning views. Fantastic service, wonderful food and of course the ability to explore the island, particularly liked Faja Dos Padres and the sunrise trip. Huge thanks to GM Ciriaco and Patricia for looking after us so well.
As good as we hoped
We were hoping for a great experience in beautiful surroundings and we got it . An elegant hotel steeped in history with a service across the board that excelled . Unfair to single out anyone as all the staff were excellent and helpful . Isa, the concierge on the front desk was especially warm and helpful even behind a mask !! Breakfast outside by the pool every day was a la carte only because of covid but was actually better than a buffet and very quick and attentive . Service on the terrace for early evening drinks was equally good . Room was beautiful , comfortable with great plumbing . I reckon you could fill a bath in under a minute ! And of course the hotel is situated on a headland overlooking the bay with lovely gardens and yet only a short walk into the centre of town and taxis are cheap and plentiful if the hill climb back is too much to face .
Another excellent stay
We managed to squeeze in 3 nights at our favourite hotel. They made every effort to make it C19 safe but without being too intrusive and maintaining the Reids feel. Breakfast was very good and personally preferred the full service to the usual buffet. It’s a shame the sea pool is closed because of C19 and it not having chemicals etc although they have renovated it. The sea was warm at 22/23 degrees.
Stunning hotel, excellent service
Stayed here for a week and we could not recommend more. The hotel is located on a beautiful cliff overlooking the sea, stunning gardens, excellent food (especially Cipriani), drinks (cocktail bar) and some of the best staff/service we have had anywhere. Could not recommend more.
