Top stay with an amazing view!
Amazing hotel! Worth staying in a sea view room. Wonderful view from your balcony. I think 20€pp to use the Spa is a bit too much. Overall great experience, totally recommend! 😍

This is our 5th visit to the hotel, so needless to say we like it a lot. This year though there had been a large rockfall that had closed down the marina and restaurants. Yes,this is a natural disaster and not the fault of the hotel, but as there is not much there it confines you to the hotel itself. The most annoying part was when we discovered it has been closed since February, and having booked in March to go in June we were not informed of this during the booking process, or any time up until departure . However after saying all this , it is a fantastic hotel with very friendly and helpful staff throughout the hotel.

Very good 8.0
Nice hotel, friendly staff but............
Very slow service in bars that were not busy. Smell of raw sewage at beach bar. Spa not included in price of room which were not inexpensive.

Fair 4.0
Alot to say.. Shop around/read reviews!!
Wi-Fi very good around the whole hotel. Rooms are not very private. Shower is open in the room!! But otherwise can't fault the rooms. More of a high 3 star low 4 star not a 5 though. Simple things like the frigde was turned off in the room couldnt use unless you wanted the mini bar. No iron in room etc small things expected from 5 star. We got disturbed every night with a knock on the door to see if we wanted anything which can be seen as a positive or negative really. (Personally I would phone down If I needed anything. I could of been sleeping) Room wasn't cleaned till 3ish daily. Nice view as we got a free upgrade to a sea view room. Ripped off by hotel transport and on a time limit to visit funchal. (€20 each 10am pick up-6pm drop off) Get a hire car (limited parking tho) or bus (€3 all day). Nothing around the area so need a car really. Stoned beach so take your shoes. Few nice food places near the hotel again the hotel is a rip off everything is cold aswell and not much choice. Mainly fish. Breakfast was nice and wide choice but was served cold and not replenished quick (we had this included in our room which was suited as nothing was near by breakfast wise and it worked out cheaper) would recommend breakfast but not lunch or dinner. Hotel is abit of a maze. No clear directions. Bottom line it was very chilled and we stayed for 3days and this was enough. Would not return would stay in Funchal and with a different chain of hotel next time. Shop around and read reviews!!

Sweet Suite Life
Enjoyed five nights at Savoy Saccharum - our suite gave us use of the premium services, including the lovely spa and indoor swimming facilities, as well as the top floor sundeck and lounge. Staff were courteous, smiley and welcoming. We ate a few nights at two of their restaurnts; we really enjoyed Trapiche by the swimming pool in the evenings. Also nice fitness room. The treatments in the Spa were nice, we had two facials, which were both very relaxing and good value for money. The hotel is very stylish and modern, nice grounds and everywhere is spotless clean.
