Fabulous, exceptional value resort hotel in a great location
Recently returned from a wonderful four night break at this wonderful hotel in the Lido area of Funchal. I'm pleased to say that the hotel exceeded my expectations in every respect. The property itself is very well situated, looking out to sea with an abundance of good restaurants nearby and easy access to the Lido Promenade. Getting around is quite easy too - there are a number of bus stops really close to the hotel to get one into the centre of Funchal. Rooms are of a very good size and of exceptional value for the price paid. I stayed in a side sea view room. I must say that there wasn't that great of a view of the sea (my room was quite a long way back along the side of the hotel), but was still extremely comfortable and much larger than I was expecting, containing a large bed, two desks, a small sofa and coffee table and a spacious bathroom with his and hers wash basins, bath, shower, toilet and bidet. Bathroom amenities very good - plenty of toiletries replenished daily, good quality towels and bath robes. Although I wouldn't quite put the accommodation into the Five Star bracket that it claims, it's easily of a very decent Four Star standard and for â¬86.89 (+500 Melia Rewards points) per night, one really can't complain at all! I felt the price was particularly good when considering that it also included a great buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant. I also received â¬15 room credit per day to spend on dinner, etc, which made a nice dent in the price of the hotel's â¬28 buffet dinners - lots of choice on offer at these: various salads, meats, fish, accompaniments and a good choice of deserts and cheese. Facilities include a great outdoor pool, looking out to sea, with ample sun loungers provided. There is also a good indoor pool. Free and fast Wifi is provided throughout the hotel. All the staff that I encountered were extremely friendly, professional, and very eager to help with any requests. I also had a very good experience with the hotel-booked transfer service to the airport - the lady driver was very friendly and courteous and the price of â¬35 for the transfer in an immaculate new Mercedes Benz certainly compared very favourably with the price of taking an ordinary taxi. This was my first experience of Melia hotels and it's certainly done a lot to endear me to the group. I felt that I received great recognition even as a lowly, recently joined member of their Melia Rewards loyalty programme and I will certainly stay with Melia more as a result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel or to stay here again when I'm next in Madeira (which is a wonderful destination!)More
Great value 5 star
This is a very nice hotel. I have stayed in better 5 star hotels, but they all cost from twice the price up to 5 times the price of this one! You generally get more for your money in Madeira, but this is particularly great value. Note: we got the best deal by booking direct with Melia.com, and joining their loyalty programme (simple, quick and free). It has a good position, and has many nice restaurants close by. We had a 'side sea view' room, which was really nice and did have a good sea view. If we returned, we would pay the extra for a 'front ocean view' room, they have a great uninterrupted view over the pool to the sea and get the sun from dawn to dusk. The staff are all professional, helpful and friendly. We also got a 'gift' from melia.com, â¬15 per day to spend in the hotel, which almost paid for 4 cocktails / liquors in the bar every evening (happy hours from 18:00 to 21:00) which was very reasonably priced, unlike the usual hotel bar rip off prices! The breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. There are lots of nice 5 star hotels in Funchal, but this one offered by far the best value and we were not disappointed.More

A superb hotel !
This was our second trip to this excellent hotel after a very positive experience the previous gates, so we had high expectations. We were not disappointed in any way. The facilities are of a very high standard and are well maintained. The location is superb - accessible on foot from Funchal centre (20 minute walk) with unobstructed ocean views. However, the greatest assets of this hotel are the strong leadership, professionalism and positive attitude of the staff, who are unfailingly helpful even in the face of difficulty. For example, when a technical fault made a part of the spa area unavailable during our visit, we were immediately compensated with a full facial treatment at our convenience. Again, when an unexpected staff absence occurred, we observed a senior member of the hotel management team, Snr Martens, immediately pitch in and assist with breakfast service. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis, which seems the best value. The breakfast is well-presented and of very high quality. While the evening buffet-style service in the restaurant is good, there are so many outstanding restaurants in the vicinity that you will almost certainly want to eat out most nights. The hotel pool is beautiful and very well maintained and there are plenty of sunbeds available, both at poolside and on terraces around the hotel grounds. The gym is very spacious and well-equipped, free to use and with classes available at an additional cost. The spa area is a highlight with a range of treatments available. We had a couples massage and, while this was not cheap, it was an unhurried and wonderfully relaxing experience. I would recommend joining the hotel's loyalty scheme via their website if you are thinking of staying, as it provides a discount on bar and room service and you gain reward points that can be used towards further stays or hotel services. Overall, we had another very enjoyable stay at this excellent hotel which we would recommend unhesitatingly to others.More

The reception was abysmal, five-star hotels that do not fit, the receptionist unspeakable behavior .... In total, the staff is insured, with difficulty, but completed the necessary job, -sajnos pillatig no one felt it would be a 5 star hotel. The breakfast was poor (poor choice, every day is the same), the pool had to fight to obtain the bed mattress, no basic kindness, helpfulness nor do we even against tipping .... I've been to several shape Church, 5 star hotel, but unfortunately Madero Melia, does not comply with any aspect of these stars for classification.More
