Great location and good value for money! Jan 27, 2012
Hotel Raga is a 4* tourist hotel, situated on the hillside a few kilometres from Madeira's capital city Funchal and overlooking the Lido area of the island- try to get a room with a sea view if you can!

I stayed in this hotel as part of a last minute package deal before it underwent a refurbishment, so the twin room we had was basic and in need of updating-although I didn't have any problems during the stay with any facilities in the room itself. The pool area was concreted and dated and although this area of the hotel has now been modernised, the location does not do it justice as it backs onto the main road outside and traffic noise did put me off sunbathing!

The hotel has two restaurants- L'Horizon, opening at 7.30am and boasting panoramic windows, and Bar Five, opening at 12.00pm, with set menus in both. I have no complaints about the food itself, although I found the selection at breakfast to be rather limited- myself and my friend chose to eat out quite a lot.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants outside the hotel and being within walking distance of the city centre, together with direct access to the Lido promenade and the sea, makes it a really good location.

Having seen the improvements the hotel needed and has now made, i'd definitely go back again- it's good value for money, the service is friendly and the rooms are modern.

good tourist class hotel Jul 17, 2009
Hotel Raga is a good tourist class hotel located at the Lido, about 3 km outside the very centre of Funchal.

Even though the outside looks nothing special, the rooms were very nicely refurbished and had wooden floors, a spacious bathroom and a nice balcony.

The pool was a bit on the small side, but in general tourists don't visit this island to stay by the pool all day. Even when returning from excursions late afternoon, the pool man could still provide us with spare lounge chairs.

An ample buffet breakfast is served at the equally nicely refurbished restaurant, though one should hurry to get a space on the rather small outside terras.

I had half board and the dinners were average with a rather limited sellection. I would recommend opting for just B&B as there are plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity. However the waiting staff was very friendly, prices for drinks are democratic and there was even live music/dance 1x a week.

All in all good value for money (seen the rather low last-minute price we paid)
