Stayed for two weeks at the Savoy Gardens and it was great. Our room (707) was one of the suites and it was just superb, our balcony was the envy of the other guests. A clean, comfortable and friendly hotel we loved it. The reception staff were extremely obliging and informative with any question we asked. Infact ALL the staff were lovely including Mr Grumpy behind the bar, we got used to him.
The food although not a great selection was of a good quality and cooked very well. The Thomson entertainment team were very very good and quite made the holiday with their evening shows.
Our wedding anniversary was the day before we left and my husband asked if we could have breakfast in our room. It arrived complete with a glass of champagne - compliments of the hotel, it was a very nice touch and we had a happy anniversary card from them.
The hotel is on a steep incline but even with recovering from a knee op I managed it ok.
We went on more trips than usual ('cos of my knee) and they were good value for money and the guide(s) were very informative. The Western tour was in our opinion much better than the Eastern tour (more to see). 45 mins at the fishing village was far too long, wasn't even pretty.
Maderia itself is a lovely island and the people really appreciate it when you attempt to try their language.
