Hotel Raga

Hotel Raga, Funchal Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]

A pleasant and relaxing option that is popular amongst middle market British travellers who seek a well run operation one block back from the mass of coast side options.

The homely interior appeals to many mature clients although the relatively steep slope up from the main street may not appeal to less agile guests.

Interior

The interior is slightly dated but comfortable and friendly looking. A 70s style lounge is joined by a dark looking TV area, often frequented by football fanatics. A bar has an appealing local style whilst the restaurant is cheerful although rather dated in appearance.

Rooms: 170

Grounds

A terrace has sweeping views along the coast and a good supply of sunloungers round the decent sized pool. The pool bar lacks charm or character but simply serves its purpose. The pool area lacks natural shade.

Location

There is a good assortment of shops, bars and restaurants around the Lido area, 200m away and buses stop on the main road at the foot of a stairway leading down from the property.
