"Hotel Raga Was Very Good"

This was our first visit to Madeira and although we had mixed weather it did not stop us going out and about, except for one morning. The Hotel Raga was very good, with friendly staff and clean rooms, just wish they had had tea/coffee in the room but that is just a small niggle.

We had a beautiful day for travelling up in the cable cars, and for riding about on the open top buses another day, the weather was kind to us the day we visited Nunns Valley a lovely place to visit.

Around our hotel (Raga) there were plenty of eating places. Joe's wine shop just around the corner from our hotel, is a wealth of information, we bought a giro bus ticket which you can top up and this allows you travel in and out to Funchal.

On our last full day in Madeira it was raining and the sea was rough sending waves over the wall which made for good entertainment whilst we sat at a cafe/bar with our beer and wine outside under an overhead cover. Mother Nature put on a great show that day and we got some great photographs as well.

I would suggest you buy the Giro bus ticket to allow you to travel in to Funchal and back, saves the quite long walk and uphill at times.

"We Will Be Returning To The Hotel Raga"

We have just returned from a half term break in Madeira. This was our first trip to Madeira but not our last I hope.

A really lovely island with the most breathtaking scenery. We stayed at the Hotel Raga on Bed and Breakfast basis and it was superb I would fully recommend it. Our room had a seaview which was lovely.

Breakfast at the Raga is buffet style and something for everyone, served at a very civilised 7.30- 10am. Don't go down at 9am as this is very busy. The rooms are spotless and linen changed very regularly. We did some Thomson trips which I would recommend. The East and The West and the trip to Monte with the basket ride. Doing these trips gives you an insight into the island. The courier's on these trips were excellent. We also did the Casino trip the show and the meal were good but the Casino not great.

Next to the hotel is a very good patisserie where you can have coffee and cake very cheaply but excellent. I wouldn't particularly recommend the restaurant further up I think it is called Paella something! A rat was spotted there! However all the meals we had were first class and we will be returning to the Hotel Raga.

Oh yes we did have 2 days rain but it was February.

"Accommodation Itself Is Really Comfortable"

The Raga hotel is situated in the Lido area on Funchal with frequent and direct buses from the bus stop opposite. It takes about 10 minutes.

The accommodation itself is really comfortable and we even had a fridge in our room. Whilst the rooms are a high standard other facilities in the hotel are limited. The reception area is cramped and very hot, the swimming pool small and uninviting and the bar is also stifling hot.

The buffet breakfast was good. We can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good base to explore Funchal and the rest of Madeira but is not suited to clients who wish to have good facilities on site.

Lots of restaurants within easy walking distance.

Finally book your trips through a local agent not your tour operator who charge over double for virtually the same trip.
