Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor we chose for the Golden Residence to stay for the last week of 2013. And we were not disappointed. The hotel consists of 3 building blocks (A, B en C). A and B are connected and C-building, where the restaurant, spa and swimming pools are located, is across the street. We (4 of us) had our suites in the A-building.
The suites are spacious and offer everything to make your stay comfortable, including kitchen, large bathroom with hot shower, balcony with seaview. The living area can be seperated from the bedroom by a sliding door. The hotel is especially suitable for the disabled.
Breakfast is buffet style and offers you all you can wish for, fresh fruit, cereals of all sorts, rolls and pastry and cooked to order eggs and omelets.
We prebooked the Gala dinner on Christmas Eve, which was buffet style as well. Very stylishly done and an enormous choice of nicely presented dishes. Delicious. Nevertheless, we decided to eat out the other evenings as Funchal has so much to offer culinarywise.
We would certainly return to this hotel when we come back to this beautiful island and therefore can certainly recommend the Golden Residence.
