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.

Was 5 star now 4 star

This was our 5th visit. At reception our instructions re eating/entertaining were scribbled onto our room card. No help with luggage. There appeared to be less staff about and less service around the pool and at breakfast. Our room(823)was kept well cleaned, however , it was sad to see such careless maintenance in the bathroom. The glass wall tiles were all cracked around the wall fittings and the window looking into the shower was leaking water into the bedroom due to poor maintenance. There were no changing facilities at the indoor pool!. The reduction in staff and poor maintenance mean that it is unlikely that we will return after all these visits to the hotelMore

Another lovely week in Madeira

Very good hotel with lots of space and modern large clean rooms. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room which is not always the case outside of England. Unfortunately our first night was spent in a room next to the road and there was a lot of traffic noise but we were moved the next day to a room on the other side of the hotel with a much better sea view and away from the road. It was lovely to have dressing gowns provided for going to the pools. We were, however, disappointed to find out that there was no sauna unless you paid to go into the spa. The food was very good with lots of choice. I think the lighting in the restaurant could be a bit less bright in the evenings but the staff were excellent. The hotel looks over the sea with lovely strolls in either direction with lots of bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay again.More

Nice 4 star hotel

Just returned from weeks stay at Melia .Pleasant hotel not quite a five star rating though. As previous reviews have mentioned facilities I would like to comment why I thinks it doesn't rate five star . Firstly with all ratings we expect what goes with them for example no one looked after our suitcases up to rooms,we are capable of doing it ourselves but I would have expected it. Breakfast is very good using lovely fresh bread and fruit but there didn't seem to be a Maitre D on duty.Staff all very helpful but we all need someone to give us direction at times . We had dinner once and felt a bit three star. Eat at Goya across road twice excellent five course fine dining with nice wine for 38 euros each well worth it. I believe hotel is celebrating sixth birthday but needs a bit of a refurb. Bathroom bit tired old bath robes and towels . Spa and facilities expensive never understand this when they have a captive supply of guests who would treat themselves if price is right and not a rip off. Someone already mentioned no changing facilities by indoor pool only toilets. Ladies by reception no hand dryer or papers towels just a roll of toilet paper to dry hands. No visual sig of management walking around which is what I have normally found. All just seemed a little bit that will do attitude . Again all staff very nice and friendly as all in madeira are.Location and facilities near by are good so if looking for four star this may suit you if looking for five star look againMore

Nice and recommended stay, but since it is a five star they could improve

I stayed at Melia one week in March. I was unlucky, my first room I had to share with an ant family so I got to change. In that room I had constant trouble with the wifi. They resolved the problem (thanks to one excellent staff member), but I had to call about it every day - very annoying if you have to work. Except these to things I found the rooms very nice, great beds, lovely bathrooms and a nice balcony. I only had breakfast in the restaurant and meal from the snack bar and I found them both quite good. The breakfast could be a bit more efficient, even though staff were very friendly it took quite a bit of time to get a cup of coffee - would be better to be able to pick it ourselves if wanted. The SPA I found expensive but excellent. I had a couple of treatments, had the same lady both times and she was great! I do recommend it! The SPA area I would also very much recommend. Very relaxing and quiet!! I used the gym a few times and it was small but ok! More
