We had a great stay at the Golden Residence. Breakfast buffet was very nice. The best part was the sunset out on the terrace. Shopping mall very close to the hotel was a bonus - lots of great shopping and it included a grocery store too.

Amazing quiet hotel with superb location and views
This is a really nice hotel, this is the second time we have stayed here and with all the hotels to choose from that tells something. We were a bit nervous reading some other reviews, if covid restrictions would make it a less enjoyable, but this was not case. The hotel was nice and clean and we had to wear face masks around the hotel which was the only ‘inconvenience’ we encountered. The food at the hotel is still a fully stocked buffet, which at breakfast has an amazing selection of hot and cold items which varied from day to day. We only tried their evening buffet once which we felt was not worth the money due to the limited selection there was very little hot food (2-3 choices) and this was the same as last time we were there. The rooms are nice and big and suits must type of travel styles as it has a little kitchen, seating area, loads of wardrobe space, room to move and a balcony. The staff here is amazing and always helpful and friendly with whatever questions you may have. The hotel itself is nicely located it’s in a very quiet and peaceful area, but also has loads of restaurants within 15 min walking distance in almost any direction. And if you go up and take the number 1 bus you are in the marina part of Funchal in less than 20 min. The only little minus I would say this hotel has is that it needs a bit of paint we had a fair bit of scuff marks on the walls and rust is starting to show which makes it look more tired than it is. But overall I can only recommend.

Fab hotel - nice people, good location, plenty of stuff nearby. Good breakfast. Nice pool and outside area. Couple of issues (sticking bathroom door and failed aircon) both resolved within the hour. Would recommend

Great hotel & even greater value
Had the pleasure of staying in this lovely hotel. It's very clean and modern, you won't be disappointed. The small negatives, unusual layout with 3 blocks, means you'll have a fair amount of walking and a road to cross, single use plastic gloves (temporary due to covid) for meals impact eco-friendliness, small distance from main strip (7 euro cab), indoor pool was closed during our stay (refurbishment), gym equipment could do with updating and main sea views are in C block. But these are tiny gripes, the staff were lovely and patient. views from the pool area gorgeous. Definately more of a family or group vibe, but quiet enough for a romantic getaway. Breakfasts were good, with varied choices, impeccably clean and modern throughout. There is a local shopping centre with most things you may need. I would definately recommend it and stay there again. This hotel was awesome value and a great launch point.

Lovely hotel on a lovely island
This hotel is simple, clean & modern. I'd stay here again! It is big so the walk to the pool & breakfast can take a little while from block A, we found the stairs though so no issues for us. The gym is adequate, the range of dumbbell weights in particular allow for a fairly good workout. The outdoor pool is a good size with a fair amount of loungers. The breakfast is great! Poolside drinks are pretty reasonable & the staff are friendly. We had a few minor issues but the staff sorted these quickly. The spa & indoor pool are currently closed, massages are still available but they are not in the spa, if you book massage make sure to ask where it will be! Parking is 5 Euros per night but there is plenty of on street parking close to the hotel so we didn't pay for parking at all during our stay. My husband and I did a mix of hiking & relaxing by the pool, it felt great being away in 2021 & I wish we'd stayed longer.
