Riu Palace Madeira, Madeira Portugal

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

An amenable and upmarket looking establishment, in a quiet and  attracts guests preferring to be away from the larger and more sophisticated resort areas.

The wide range of onsite activities and facilities gives many little cause to venture away from the hotel, other than on the occasional trip into Funchal on the courtesy bus.

Riu Palace Madeira

Interior

The spacious and airy lobby is refreshing and welcoming with its gleaming marble cladding. A majestic looking corridor leads through to a spacious and well furnished restaurant whilst a large door leads out to a pleasant terrace and the gardens beyond.

Main bar is comfortable and inviting with much beige coloured decor and an entertainment area. Smaller intimate lounge areas look extremely comfortable and relaxing.

Rooms: 327

Grounds

The gardens enjoy sweeping sea views from the spacious terrace with its symmetrical pools. Large white parasols provide distinct sophistication although the grounds are rather compact when considering the number of rooms within the property. There is additional sunbathing on a wide terrace and an additional terrace provides alfresco dining.

Location

Area Type: Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, on the edge of a cliff at the eastern fringe of Canico de Baixo. There is a smaller property immediately adjacent and a string of other options further up the hill past a row of simple bars, shops, car hire offices and restaurants. A promenade stretches along the cliff top behind the Reis Magos beach but serves little purpose. A courtesy bus provides a regular service to Funchal.

Nearest beach: 120m (Canico de Baixo)
