We spent 14 days at the Savoy Garden in November 2011.
Glorious views over Funchal from our balcony and rooftop terrace - which operated a courtesy bar with snacks. The large swimming pool, with a plethora of sunbeds, was spotless.
The facilities were excellent and staff were friendly and helpful at all times.
The dining room was spacious with a variety of courses to suit all. Each night the food was themed.
There was public transport within 200 metres of the Savoy.
Going down for buses was no problem but the hotel was situated at the top of a steep hill, and the journey home in the heat could prove tiring.
Excursion buses were unable to park at hotel which necessitated a short 50 metre walk to the nearest junction.
The hotel operated a cashless system, which might have induced one to spend very liberally BUT one could settle bills at any time to prevent them mounting. We were glad to do this!
We would certainly return to this hotel.
Advice to proprietors - a courtesy bus would be a most welcome addition to the facilities.
