Very nice staff - a true 5 star experience. Our room had a beautiful view on the hotel's garden and the sea. Breakfast was delicious and so were the two restaurants we tried (William's and Cipiriani). The hotel also has nice swimming pools and a gym (however, it's a pitty that the sauna/steam rooms are separate for men and women....

I always wanted to stay at Reid's and last week i achived my wish. My expectations were sky high but Reid's exceeded them.

My wife and I spent ten days at this hotel on a half board basis. Must be one of the best holidays of our lives - sheer class and traditional/highest quality of surroundings, accommodation and service. We had holidayed there 35 years ago and were delighted to find that the extensions of the buildings since then have done nothing to...

The average age at this grand old hotel was as expected - older folk expect a high quality of service and staff who are attentive and know their names. We weren't disappointed, and loved every minute of our holiday. The room was very comfortable, and the balcony with views towards the sea was really lovely. Unpacking was quite challenging, with...

Have stayed in several hotels in Funchal over the years but Reids is still the best experience. The staff are so good and always there for you. The swimming area, sea area and gardens are a haven to escape to. The public rooms are wonderful. Above all you feel safe and relaxed away from the stresses of modern life.

We did not stay here but visited for a drink, we were shown to the Cocktail Bar and the views are excellent. Sat and had a drink each, not cheap but well worth it, were given snacks and napkins. It was relaxed and a beautiful place, would definitely go back. The service was very good.

Everything about this hotel is excellent. Staff are hugely competent, are very friendly, and helpful. Rooms are well appointed - most have great views. Food is first class - gorgeous poolside lunch, be sure to try the buffet, and two fine dining restaurants. Plenty of activities to suit younger sportier people - we blended with the older couples.
