Golden Residence Hotel, Funchal
Not a Four-Star Hotel, and not worth the View!
This is not a 4 Star Hotel. The property is run down and the rooms were spartan, and less than clean. Upon our arrival, our room request of a double bed wasn't met, the AC in our room didn't work, and there were ants in the room. Yet, because of the late arrival (7PM), we were told there was nothing that could be done until the morning. EVERYTHING required an extra charge (towels not returned, 35 Euros). Staff attempted to be accommodating but most of the time acted as if their hands were tired. We were forced to stay here as only offered a non-refundable rate for this property, and, once there, we couldn't get in touch with them via their international number to make alternate arrangements (except for via live chat, but they said they couldn't complete anything until we called in). Restaurant was HORRIBLE and extremely overpriced- we ate breakfast (that we paid for) once in a 4 day stay. One night, instead of buying the overpriced buffet, we asked to see the a la carte menu, and then were told after ordering our dinners would take 45 minutes since the chef was "cooking for the buffet". We stayed at 6 different properties through our 3 week honeymoon, and this was by far the worst. It really put a damper on our entire time in Madeira.

Comfortable Cliff-Top Hotel
Views from this cliff-top hotel are stunning. The staff is helpful. And the hotel is within walking distance of the sites in Funchal. Overall -- the hotel offers good value.

Great Hotel Super clean
Got upgraded to suite. Right by lava pools and mall. Great location. Breakfast was delicious. MOST IMPORTANT. Get a ride from the hotel or take the bus from the airport. Our taxi ride was 48 EURO! ITS A 15 MINUTE RIDE!

Very Good8.0
Very good hotel and food good. Excellent bus service - right at door for Funchal centre and Aerobus. Only small complaints were - kettle provided in room but no tea/coffee milk, sugar. Only liquid soap supplied - no other toiletries - shampoo etc. (not good if you only have cabin luggage.) Also small fee (1.5E per day) for using room safe.
