Travelled via RCI and as usual got the lower end room allocation. We hoped that because the hotel didn't appear over busy and we are a couple in our mid sixties we would be offered an upgrade. But hey... Overall the hotel was good and we would return without hesitating. As with all big hotels that are used all the...

We stayed here early March. From almost everything you can see that the place has enjoyed better times. Despite this everything works and is generally in good order and clean. Location is excellent near the touristic center with a lot of restaurants and bars. WiFi only in the lounge. You'll be charged an extra 6 euro should you wish to...

We stayed here as a RCI swap. The room was a good size, but the bathroom was in serious need of updating. Also we had to kill off a few ants every day Surprised really as we were on the 5th floor! Nice balcony with a sea view and a regular sun trap in the morning. Signage around the hotel...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for choosing us over so many other Hotels in Madeira. This year has been a atipic year for ants in Madeira not only in Alto Lido but all over the island, in floors and places never seen before.

On reading some of the recent reviews on this hotel I arrived with an open mind. On arrival the reception staff were very friendly and sorted our rooms out very quickly, even sorted my room request which was sent some weeks ago. Rooms were very spacious, clean and well equipped, comfortable beds and were cleaned every day with clean towels...

Having read other reviews of the hotel and food, we went with hopes that they had over exaggerated the comments. In the positive the staff were always polite and helpful. The room was cleaned each day with clean towels if requested and was comfortable. I even got a birthday cake on my birthday whilst there having obviously noticed the date...

The breakfast was a little repetitive and we were wishing for some change especially for the protein. Nice selection of breads and fruits though. The rooms we're spacious and clean.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff were all very nice and helpful and answered any questions we had. The facilities were all great and the entertainment that was on offer was very good and fun for all of the family. For me the only downfall was the air conditioning which didn't work properly and they didn't have enough...

A cheap hotel that does not deserve its 4 stars. Free wifi - only in the lobby. Breakfast servicable, but totally unimaginative. The outdoor pool closed the week we visited, no info about this beforehand. The hallway carpet should have been renewed 10 years ago. The positive: Good location, cheap drinks in the lobby bar, ok indoor pool.
