Space, comfort and quietness were much what we had hoped for. West of Funchal centre but connected by a one hour walk along the coastal promenade, the Golden Residence is well positioned for some lovely views and great walks. Our room on the west side in block A was well away from the sea, but at least served by a...

The airport was closed due to high winds, so TUI coached about 25 of us here for the night. We were checked in very quickly, the hotel was lovely in a great position. We had a suite with sea view, the pool area and gardens were immaculate. As so many unexpected guests had arrived I feel it a little unfair...

This was our third stay in 12 months and again it was excellent. The staff cannot do enough for you. For us the location is very good being close to the shopping centre and has bus stop outside the front door. The hotel restaurant is very good but there are also a selection of restaurants nearby. The Spa facilities are...

The hotel is an excellent four-star establishment with partial sea views in most rooms and is situated approximately two miles from Funchal town centre. There is a good bus and taxi service if you don’t fancy the walk. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and each has its own balcony. There is a gym and health spa with a swimming...

Stayed for 3 weeks in Feb 17, this is a good hotel and staff are helpful and friendly. Had a dental issue during our stay and Lara arranged an appointment with a local dentist.

We had a really relaxed stay at the Golden Residence last week which exceeded our expectations. We booked the hotel and flight deal with a UK airline and felt it was excellent value for money. The hotel guests were a mixture of all ages and nationalities. Knowing the hotel location from a previous holiday, we liked the closeness to the...

Enjoyed our week here. Would have been better with a balcony in the sun. If you enjoy sunshine make sure you ask for a room on the left side. If you like cool and shade the right side is fine. Buffet breakfast is good although always hectic due to the amount of people in the area at any one time....

Our room was very nice, beautiful view from the from a balcony. Big comfy bed. Breakfast was very varied - meals in the evening were good too. Good location too, beach nearby and a large shopping center behind the hotel. I can highly recommend Golden Residence!
