Couple visit for 48th time

Couple first chose Madeira in 1972

Couple visit for 48th time 1JM report that yesterday, the Regional Directorate for Tourism paid tribute to William and Pamela Fletcher for their 48th visit to Madeira.

The British couple, aged 79 and 80, respectively, first chose Madeira for their holidays in 1972, always staying at the Aparthotel Imperatriz and Hotel Royal Savoy hotels. They consider Madeira as a “second home, a safe island”, and have organized several group trips, with about 20 people, and for 2021, they expect to return with new elements.

For Dorita Mendonça, Regional Director of Tourism, these moments “of recognition and loyalty from these official ambassadors, are very important to value this relationship and also to motivate the continuity of the visit”.

It was the Pearl of the Atlantic Madeira Travel Agency, which sought the regional tourism directorate for this purpose, with emphasis on the importance of proximity between visitors and travel agents, who are also direct promoters of the destination.

  1. We have been coming since 1982 and every year since 2002 sometimes for 2 months. We have stayed at nearly all of the Pestana hotels and the Old Savoy Classic where we once enjoyed our company conference . We have stayed every year at the Savoy Royal where we have always received a warm welcome with superb staff since it was built, this year however we also stayed at the new Savoy Palace where I am sorry to say this was the worst experience ever. The replies you have received on this feature show that Madeira relies substantially on an older generation the Savoy Palace does not appear to want us, although it has a very interesting modern design it is certainly not designed for comfort or safety and I’m also sorry to say that the food was 2nd class.
    We will be returning to Madeira because of its wonderful people.
