A great hotel with breathtaking views across the bay. The staff are attentive, nothing too much trouble...special mentions to Fabio on reception, Laura, restaurant staff and Elsa who was in the Cabana & restaurant. Our rooms ( upgraded to a suite) were clean, and had everything we needed. We needed a quiet break to recharge our batteries and that was...

This hotel was too far from Funchal centre. The rooms were clean, but as the outside of the hotel was ultra modern the room were very old fashioned. The staff were quite standoffish, and the breakfast was very dull

Space, comfort and quietness were much what we had hoped for. West of Funchal centre but connected by a one hour walk along the coastal promenade, the Golden Residence is well positioned for some lovely views and great walks. Our room on the west side in block A was well away from the sea, but at least served by a...

The airport was closed due to high winds, so TUI coached about 25 of us here for the night. We were checked in very quickly, the hotel was lovely in a great position. We had a suite with sea view, the pool area and gardens were immaculate. As so many unexpected guests had arrived I feel it a little unfair...

The hotel is an excellent four-star establishment with partial sea views in most rooms and is situated approximately two miles from Funchal town centre.
