Raga Hotel
Ranked #51 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Considering this hotel is situated in the heart of the hotel district, close to a busy road, there is very little traffic or music noise at night - but I suspect this is because Funchal is thankfully NOT like Torremolinos! The hotel is only 7 years old and is furnished in Euro-modern style. The rooms are large, air conditioned, quiet, very clean and comfortable, with hairdryers, a washing line, swimming pool towels and a fridge provided. Staff are discreet, friendly, efficient and multi-lingual. The breakfast buffet provides everything that Europeans like to eat included full English if you want it. The coffee is excellent. Try and eat either earlier or later to avoid the groups of tourists getting ready for island tours. The heated pool is large and clean - and you can get a generous tuna baguette and a beer for lunch at the pool bar for less than 5 Euros. Very handy for buses and taxis into town. It's a 10 minute walk to the seafront. There is also free Wi-fi for those with I-pads.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea - the best views are from the 5th floor upwards. If you don't lik...

Hi stayed here from 25th March to 1st April exceptionally clean and very modern rooms, with great sea views from the front rooms, pool bar has a good variety of snacks at reasonable prices, very clean pool area with an attendant removing every leaf as it fell into the pool!
breakfast standard and plentiful, did not dine otherwise so can't comment on evening meals.
Bar area small inside but with a lovely terrace area overlooking the sea.
Reception staff helpful and position ok for buses into Funchal, would not walk as the rep said 20mins more like 40mins! would stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor front facing room

A clean well run and friendly hotel which was perfect for our stay. No barking dogs and the road noise is minimal it certainly did not disturb us. The hotel is modern and clean and the kitchenette in the room was a real bonus. It's location is perfect And there Are plenty of cheap taxis to take you into town. The food was limited but good and there are a number of good restaurants in walking distance. Book direct with the hotel for the best deal. The staff here are all fantastic. Good pool with bar too.

Enjoy the stay at Hotel Raga, nice rooms, friendly staff, helpfull, was situated in calm area, with a nice view especially the rooms on the corner, view on the sea and also on the mountains, , near the busses and even could walk to the center of Funchal.
A lot to walk around for people who like walking, went in november and the weather was so good, still flowers every where. The restaurant, with terace, and buffet, with a lot of fish.

Room Tip: rooms on the corners half way of the building, very nice view

Just returned from this lovely hotel, the rooms are very nice and modern with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Although on a hill if you go out at the bottom gate by the pool you are on the main road with all the shops,restaurants and bus stops.its about 30 min walk to the left into Funchal but well worth it. Walk about 30min to your right to the forum with a food court and lots of shops. The staff are very friendly, especially at the pool bar. We toured a lot of the island, via car and coach, it's beautiful. We would definitely go back to see things we missed and would be happy to stay at the Raga.

Room Tip: Looking out to sea, right Corner sea view gets the sun nearly all day

I stayed here for 1 night on a Business trip.
The reception staff are very friendly and obliging. A late check out was given without hassle and no extra charge.
The room was an average size with an average bathroom. Not 4 star standard.
The room has an empty fridge and the room safe costs 1.50 euro per day.
The room only had 1 plug socket to use, hidden behind a chair.
The beds are very hard. The room service has very limited times 7pm - 9.30pm. The room service menu is limited. Breakfast also has a very limited choice buffet.
The TV has 2 English channels Sky News and CNN!
The Balcony is a good size with table and 2 chairs. My room also had a sea view, although the hotel is not located on the sea front.
The swimming pool and pool area was clean with sun beds, but not in use due to over cast weather.
It is a good 25 minute walk into Funchal centre at a good pace, the steep hill you walk down goes up on the way back!!
There is a good shopping centre if you turn right out of the hotel about a 10 minute walk called "Forum". For cat lovers there is a shop in this centre called Gatto and sells everything with cats on!
