Melia Madeira Mare  

Contemporary styling and ocean views make this hotel stand out. And then there’s the luxury spa...

This cutting-edge hotel comes with panoramic views of the Atlantic and direct access to a small pebble beach. You’ll find it in the popular Lido area of Funchal, about a 10-minute drive from the centre.

There are two pools – the main one has fabulous ocean views. For meals, you can choose between the buffet or the à la carte restaurant. And in the evenings, there’s live music and cocktails in a stylish setting.

John G,

Lovely holiday

Positives - breakfast fab - nice pool area snack bar with good menu - pool area lovely very clean plenty of beds and umbrellas and attentive pool staff - side sea view room 7th floor lovely with great bathroom, fridge in room and very nice touch of free ice machine on corridor (but only on 4th and 7th floors), rooms cleaned daily fresh towels and toiletries etc - some nice restaurants & bars within walking distance - buses stop right outside hotel and taxis also always available right outside - Lifts in hotel always working and you never waited long for one - very friendly helpful staff. Negatives - not enough bar staff - some bars not always open - one was never open in 2 weeks - poor live entertainment in hotel - restaurant evening meal menu wasn't varied enough - fine if you love meat and fish which I do but very limited for anyone who doesn't ( hubby ) Wi-fi was free but quite often was poor quality which is frustrating when you can walk into any bar, restaurant or even bus !! and log on instantly with no problems Top Tip: Fab restaurants Leeno's (Portuguese) and Il Basilico (Italian) right next to hotel - well worth a visit Lovely bar Hole in One 10 minutes walk away good entertainment nice atmosphere Ladies pack flat shoes - it is a very hilly resort you will not be wearing high heels !!!More

9th Aug One week Summer Holiday

My first time in Madeira with my girlfriend at this fantastic hotel , when we first walked in the staff at reception were friendly informative & knowledgeable, they took time explaining everything to us,the hotel room was clean a good size with a balcony with a sea view its in a good location, it's about a ten minute walk to the town centre or a short bus or taxi ride. We were on the experience package which is very good value so would advise to try & get that offer if available. We will defiantly be going back in the near future More

let down

Hotel not what it says in the book rooms lovely and comfortable and clean breakfast excellent but im afraid it ended there for us most meals at night not of a good standard i would recomend anyone going to go b&b as eating out is very reasonable. When we stayed the pool area was only cleaned once in the two weeks major lack of sun beds drinks at night very expensive loved the island going back next year but choosing another hotelMore

A four star hotel pretending to be a five star resort is a three star experience

Maybe I`ve gotten the star based rating system for hotels wrong, but I used to believe that five stars meant I was in store for something special. Unfortunately there is nothing special with Melia Mare; even though five stars (ironically one of the stars wouldn't light up at night) are plastered to the front wall. Luckily, there is nothing horrible about staying at Melia Mare. The public areas are clean and well maintained, the service is professional and the rooms comfortable. But this is all expected from a hotel that proudly carries five stars on its shoulders. The problem with Melia Mare is a problem it shares with a lot of modern hotel resorts; it lacks soul. The hotel doesn't feel like a unique place, drawn, designed, and built by people with a vision and a love for their craft, but a pre-fabricated building that could be anywhere in the world. You are comfortable at Melia, but its the kind of comfort you feel in a modern shopping centre. And all this may sound very subjective and snobbish - and to some extent it is - but there are some objective flaws with Melia. Take the coffee for example, that taste cheap and water downed. Or the breakfast which doesn't have a decent selection of cheese or fruits. Or the wi-fi which is always unstable. Or the sauna that cost a small fortune to use. Melia is clean, boring and full of small dissapointments.More
