I have just spent the most enjoyable week in the Tivoli Ocean Park, Madeira. The hotel has a 5 star rating and indeed it was every bit 5 star. The food was absolutely first class. The staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cleanliness was second to none. The facilities were superb for a relaxing, pampering kind of holiday. Perfect. 11 out of 10 if possible.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Tivoli Ocean Park Funchal Hotel

Perfect Hotel, beautiful island!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband our 3 year old twin boys, my mother in-law and I stayed at the Ocean park from the 4th of June for 11 nights and it was quite simply put:pure bliss!. The location is central for shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is beautiful and staff were always helpful.We booked the tower suite and an adjourning double room - both very spacious. Our suite had a kitchenette well equiped with all the essentials. The champagne breakfast was always something to look forward to. We had 3 very nice meals in the hotel the gourmet one was particularly exquisite.
If you care about the environment then you'll love the litttle recycle bins in the rooms - well thought of. This is the best hotel i've stayed in and i can't wait to go back!

A great place to stay

from Adorn
We stayed for one week at the hotel and we do not have one complaint. Everyone from when we booked in until when we left were wonderful. The pool was particulary well managed always someone on hand to help you out with a sunbed and unbrella. The breakfast was plentiful and lots of choice, you were never left waiting to be seated. I cannot praise the hotel enough, a lovely hotel where the staff make it that extra special, well worth a visit.

Absolutely wonderful

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just returned from our first visit to Madeira and I would recommend this wonderful island to anyone. The hotel was first class, excellent location, facilities, staff and food and the most wonderful outdoor swimming pool with view. I was a bit disappointed when we arrived with the location of our room, especially as the hotel was relatively quite. This was soon rectified by the helpful staff and a room with pool and sea view was granted to us. We found many good restaurants and very reasonably priced as well. We booked through Strawberry World who were excellent and also took a couple of tours with them. Their tour buses are 6-10 seaters which was much better than the larger coaches because on the tours we went on the small bus takes you on the old roads where you have magnificent views. Again reasonably priced and not rushed! The location of the Tivoli is excellent as you can walk everywhere and it is well established and you are surrounded with lovely scenery. Wherever we went the places were clean, with good service and at this time of year there we no insects or flies.

Wonderful place, I can't wait to go again.

A lovely stay with friendly staff

My Mum and I have just returned from a short break in Madeira, and stayed at this great 5-star hotel. The Tivoli Ocean Park is situated in a lovely area, and located near to many shops and restaurants, if you prefer to eat out. We were very satisfied with our deluxe room on the 10th floor with views over the Lido area and the sea. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody who is thinking of visiting Funchal.

loved the view

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Ocean Park from 31 Jan to 7 Feb 2005. The staff were wonderful throughout and could not do enough for us. Go out of season and you get so much more. Food excellent especially the breakfasts with champagne each morning! Dinner a la carte at no extra cost was also very good. The facilities are good too. Thank you Ocean Park for a wonderful holiday. We will be back! Judith from Devon

A Very Happy Christmas

from Annieliz21
I was a guest at the Tivoli Ocean Park from 20-27 Dec 2004 (Just the same time as the last reviewer I think I saw him at Breakfast one morning making a fuss and being rude to the most helpful waiter about a butter that was off). Well I have a totally opposite opinion to him. The breakfast was magnificent (Yes I also had a butter that had gone off but what the heck!). There was such a choice, fresh fruit beautifully prepared, cereals all sorts of lovely Fresh breads and cakes ( Perhaps the other reviewers teeth weren't up to the lovely crusty rolls!). and a selection of cooked items, sausage, bacon scrambled eggs and a helpful assistant who would cook you an omelette of your choice. Each day we had a wonderful leisurely breakfast (the quickest time was 64 minutes I think) and were full for the rest of the day until we went out for an evening meal.
The rooms were excellent and beautifully cleaned and fresh sheets every day. I thought how quiet the rooms were our friends were in the next room and we could hear nothing through the walls, as for doors banging I heard the odd door in the night but that is hardly the hotels fault just inconsiderate fellow guests.

The facilities were great, snooker, pool, table tennis indoor and outdoor pool (yes I was that nutcast in the outdoor pool on Boxing Day) and a well equiped gym.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and The Tivoli Ocean Park was excellent value for money

Something of a letdown

from A TripAdvisor Member
Following the excellent reviews of this hotel I made a reservation for seven nights starting 20th December 2004. The bedroom was very large together with an excellent bathroom and nice balcony with sea view. The bed was very comfortable with good cotton sheets. I found it hard to sleep with the noise of bedroom doors being closed, you could also hear the switches in the next room. Puting out a do not disturb sign made no difference as staff entered the room twice in one day. The breakfast is a help yourself one with breads and pastries which seemed not to be very fresh. On two occasions the butter in the plastic container was black with mold and other time the inside of a boiled egg was black, marmalade in a plastic container had shrunk almost to nothing On the days when I ate breakfast I had a bad stomach so I gave up eating it and felt much better for it. One night I had a meal in the hotels gastronomic restaurant I had fish which was served on a bed of cabbage marinated in vinegar which left an unpleasant after taste. Food is not perhaps this hotels strongest point. The hotel service is variable some staff friendly others not. The Tivoli could be a good hotel but the food quality needs addressing.

return soon

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel provided service, courtesy, and all the feeling of being a welcome guest that you could wish for. No favouritism shown between standard and upgraded accommodation. the staff were all so
friendly, even when under pressure.
The dress requirements are smart casual, which does away with the " Must perform" feeling. This is a hotel that i will return to.

Very enjoyable stay.

from Hayley78
I stayed at the Tivoli Ocean Park hotel in Madeira with a friend between 23rd Aug-6th Sept 2004. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves although we did find it to be a very couple orientated place-not aimed at young single people at all. However we had a very relaxing time and were sad to have to return home! The staff were brilliant-very friendly and welcoming. We particularly enjoyed the Perola bar as the cocktails were excellent. We did visit the Moonlight Nightclub quite a lot but felt that it could be a bit livelier. The hotel food was really delicious & the 3 meal deal was good value-we particularly enjoyed the Madeiran evening, the BBQ & the Boca do Cais restaurant.
On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
