It states a shuttle bus. We hung about for a hotel branded bus. After checking It is the Aerobus service with a charge of 5 euro. No tea coffee facilities. Good breakfast but the Madeira staff at the hotel are very formal and cannot smile readily. We had a fantastic view from the 8th floor overlooking everything. It was so high vertigo happened to me.
Situated on hill and steps and lifts to get everywhere. No good for infimed persons or no go for wheelchair passengers.
It was the third time I stayed at the hotel and I find that the hotel is very accessible and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. The Breakfast buffet is very vast and Five (restaurant) has a nice view of the water.
I liked allot the relationship between price/quality. It has a fine quality with a not so expensive price. Also the sea view, the pool and the location, the best!
The staff sometimes seems to be a little bit unpreparated, still very friendly
The hotel is situated about 30mins walk from Funchal centre, a pleasant level walk apart from the last 400 mtres, a taxi might cost around 7 euros or you could take a local bus ( numbers 2 and 4) which stops close to the hotel for a very reasonable 1 euro. General access to the hotel was via steps and lift from the lower road or down a fairly steep drive to the from the top road. The reception area is clean and tidy and the desk is always manned ( all speaking English ), access to most of the rooms is via the 2 lifts, which were always clean and reliable. our room was on the 8th floor with balcony and sea view. There was adequate storage space good sized ensuite, hot and cold water always available. Breakfast is served in a seperate building just outside reception and again their are a few steps to enter.Breakfast is served from 07.30am till 10 am buffet style and plenty of variety to suit all.At a lower level again was the pool reasonably sized and very clean along with a small bar which opens throughout the day till 7pm.
Nice staff, clean room, excellent location for Lido, easy and fast transportation to the center of Funchal.
I would recommend free internet access in a four star hotel.
The room was spacious and clean. The breakfasts were excellent, probably the best we've had in recent years from a buffet. The outlook was very atractive.
The bed was slightly too hard and the pillows a bit lumpy. For a four star we would expect coffe/tea making facilties in the room. The entrance to the hotel was not clear if arriving on foot via the main road.
Convient - staff - view from room - cleanliness - amenities
Have stayed before. Good price, excellent location for lido, restaurants, buses into old town and supermarkets. Good breakfast, excellent poolside bar, attentive staff, full sea views and cleanliness throughout.
Friendly Staff and Decent and Clean Rooms with nice sea view.
Breakfast isn't the best and things start to fail in a later hour. Swimming Pool turned to the main road but usable. Location isn't perfect as it is on a touristic area but many pubs and supermarkets around.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 week. Our room was very comfortable and we had our own private balcony with a beautiful sea view. Our room was cleaned each day and was spotless as was every other part of the hotel that we had access to. The swimming pool was cleaned every morning so we had absolutely no worries about swimming in it and there were plenty sun loungers and parasols for everyone. Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke very good english. The food was excellent in this hotel too. The hotel is well located. There's an excellent bus service with a stop about 2 minutes walk from the hotel. We went on several tours of the island and we were picked up at our hotel each time. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. We were sorry we weren't staying longer.
Only one Lady from the Staff can speak English, others understand English but reply only in Spanish or Portuguese. I asked for a double bed and I received 2 single, and only after three reminders they came to the room and put the 2 beds together( with one linen ) Young people are not warmly welcome, they behave as they are your Mother or Father, blaming you for all your questions or requests!
Excellent value with reasonable proximity to Funchal, well appointed and very clean. I would use again
Well situated and good facilities.
The Hotel management staff are very unfriendly with zero skills at trying to assist their guests. The Hotel is obviously cutting costs to their quests detriment (our room was cleaned at about 3.30 daily as their was only i person to clean 30 rooms.
Hotel Raga is located in the outskirts of Funchal, Madeira. Great location, close to shopping and some really good restaurants. Many interesting places are within walking distance. Large pool, live entertainment and curteous hotel staff. Great price for this place. I had a good time here.
Really, there was nothing I disliked about this hotel. Iáll go back there again with family and friends.
Sea view from the 8th floor balcony was amazing. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good and the view from the breakfast room & terrace was fantastic.
Towels weren't changed often enough, and the hand towel was picked up from the bathroom floor and hung again on the rack by the cleaning staff (towel on the floor is supposed to mean "change the towel, please"). Bedsheets weren't changed during our stay.
