Overall very good, but disappointed we were knowingly put in a room where you couldn't close the bathroom door as it was broken.

Staff is extraordinarily helpful, breakfast buffet has terrific variety, and spa service was very good. I lost a rental car key and the staff helped me call the car company and a tow truck service. Above and beyond! Highly recommend a visit to this hotel.

6/10 Good

Great hotel but needs better management.
The hotel is ideally located to local amenities. The rooms were very clean and large. However, we had to remove a cockroach from the room once. The breakfast had limited hot food choices for vegetarians at times. The only area where we were not please was that certain facilities were time based only. Steam, sauna and Jacuzzi were only switched on between 5pm - 9pm. Quite often they didn't work well either. We also had to book a breakfast slot for each day.

10/10 Exceptional

We really enjoyed our stay here, as two young adults who wanted to get out and explore the nature of the island! We had a car, which was great considering this property is a little outside downtown Funchal. Underground parking for small fee. Grocery store near by, the fridge and small kitchen was a plus. We stayed in 2 different rooms and had beautiful views in each, building A and B. Breakfast was great, they even had made to order omelets a couple of the days! Highly recommend golden residence, great value for price too. Would definitely stay again.

4/10 Fair

Our room was not what was described on our booking. We had paid for a balcony with an ocean view, but instead, it was overlooking a surrounding street. The staff were friendly and the area was very safe. Food also a significant letdown.

We liked being in block A as quiet, convenient for bus stop and shops.
