Melia Madeira Mare Hotel Funchal June 2017
1st visit to Madeira & the Meliá, we had a superior ocean view room on the 8th floor with large private balcony overlooking the Atlantic with views of the Desertas Islands archipelago 25km away, this 5* hotel was perfect although similar hotels along the Lisbon coast are categorised as 4* which would be more accurate. Breakfast buffet consisted of a wide variety of hot & cold foods, fresh breads & cereals, juices teas & coffees all of which were in plenty supply. Staff at the hotel were friendly & helpful, the pool bar staff deserve a special mention as they keep the sun worshippers supplied with cool beers, cocktails & food from the poolside menu all day long & always do it with a smile. For those who are familiar with the mainland beers like super bock & sagres you wont get them here but the local brew (Coral) is fine & you'll soon acquire a taste for it . All in all my Wife & I had a perfect early June week at the Meliá Madeira Mare & plan to return as soon as we can.More
Not for business ....
You don't have to value the spaces of the hotel only, if it is beautiful ... ... but ... the soundproofing is horrible. You hear the people in the next room even snoring when they sleep terrible , never see that ! Synthetic pillows ,,, Not a hotel for business ... maybe just for tourists that don't mind for it More
Top location, fantastic views
Just returned from a fortnight stay in the Melia hotel.Our room was very spacious with a fabulous view of the ocean Although it's a big hotel , it was extremely quiet at night , with great heavy curtains which contributed to a great nights sleep. There was a great choice of both hot/ cold food at the breakfast buffet and a chef was on head should you feel like an omelette . There's a local bus service round the corner from hotel or you could walk into town which took about 30 mins. There was a great array of local restaurants and bars nearby.More
First Madeira visit - nice hotel, but not a 5 star!
Stayed five nights in Melia Mare, which overall is a nice hotel in the outskirts of Funchal. The hotel is advertised as a 5 star hotel, but in our opinion it is more a 4 star hotel, when comparing with other 5 star hotels. The hotel mostly caters for elderly people, so if you are looking for a hotel with a nice and quite atmosphere this is the place for you, is it not if you are looking for action and activities. Location - Around a 30 min walk to Funchal city center / marina area. The hotel is situated in a very cozy quite area just next to the ocean. There is several different types of restaurants and bars just a small stroll away from the hotel. We really liked the Italian Il Basilico. :) Lobby - Decent size lobby area with a small reception, lounge areas and a bar. The reception delivered throughout our stay a very good and informative service, nothing was a too big of a problem for them. In the lobby you will find posters for many activities you can do around Madeira. Additional: We did Seaborn Catamaran dolphin / whale cruise. It was not expensive, but it was only ok and I don't think we would do it another time. Spa - The hotel has a spa with different promotions. We did not try it so cannot comment whether it is good or not. Service - Similar to above nothing to put on the service from the cleaning ladies to the people in the breakfast buffet. However, one big issue was the time that cleaning ladies started in the morning. We were situated at the 4th floor (essentially first floor for rooms). Cleaning ladies started making noise on the hall way around 7-7.30 in the morning. It may be that we have been the only ones with that problem, due to floor allocation, but nonetheless it is too early to start cleaning rooms and the hotel should in our opinion change this. Room - We had booked a side sea view room. The room was very modern all the way through and had the amenities we expected. The side sea view is definitely side sea view, but in a positive way. We have tried to get tricked by this in other hotels in the past, but the view from the room of the sea was very nice and wide (see comment on getting a high room number if possible). The bed was very comfortable and we sleept like babies until the cleaning ladies came by outside. The bathroom was nice and relatively big. The shower and bathtub is combined, which is not our favourite style, but it did what it should. Everything was clean and the lighting was good. Dining - The breakfast buffet can be characterised as quantity over quality. The positive first, the dining room is large and bright situated next to the pool. It is possible to sit outside and have breakfast which is a plus. We though did not manage any of the days we visited. For the food itself the egg station was great and the cook did tasteful omelettes. The selection/variety is quite decent, both in terms of warm and cold food, fruits, yoghurt, desserts etc. However, the quality and standard of the food in the breakfast, should be better for a five star hotel. You get the feeling with some of the things that it has been done from frozen state / pre-purchased. A good example is the pastel de Nata which all the days looked like it had been severely mistreated. The food is not bad or disgusting in any way, but it just does not live up to what we have usually seen in 5 star hotels in terms of quality. Pool - I think the pool area was the best in hotel. The sunbeds was very comfortable and it was never full, so to get beds and an umbrella was never an issue. The pool has sun the whole day and laying from the bed you can see the ocean which is nice. Another thing I noticed was that a staff member took a water quality test during the day, which we were happy with. The pool has a bar that serves drinks and snacks. Internet - Worked mostly fine in the room and at the common facilitiesMore

Great location and view
Spent one night at Melia Madeira Mare and loved it. Although it's a big hotel and was quite busy, it was relatively quiet in the pool area during the day. The rooms are large and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is spacious. There is a balcony in every room. The breakfast buffet offers a nice selection and the pool bar serves a great light lunch. Walk out of the hotel and go for a nice invigorating walk along the sea. More
