There was much to enjoy about our week at Reid’s, but quite a few negatives. Our welcome after many hours travelling was slightly half hearted, and we were offered a glass of water and told to sit and wait. Our room was well kept, and the pool area and heated pools were

We were staying in another 5star hotel but decided to treat ourselves to afternoon tea. Staff were very attentive and offered more sandwiches, scones and tea/coffee if we wanted. Amazingly beautiful view but unfortunately today it was a bit windy so we didn't manage to linger as

Dear Sir, thank you very much for your lovely message, we are glad that you have wonderful memories of our hotel. We would recommend to book our afternoon tea a couple of weeks in advance just to make sure that you reserve a table with the best view (the tables for 2 people are right on the edge of the terrace). Please do let us know if there is anything else we can do to help! Looking forward to your next visit. Kind regards, Belmond Reid's Palace

Dear Louise W, thank you for reaching out to us. Temperatures in Madeira are quite stable throughout the year and our pools are heated up to 27°C and 28°C. In general it is quite pleasant to use the pools at any time however, of course, there are days when the weather is slightly colder and, under these circumstances, it might be harder to take advantage of our outdoor facilities. We look forward to welcoming you soon! Kind regards, Belmond Reid's Palace
