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.

First visit, loved it

My daughter took me to Madeira for my Birthday from 11th to 18th July. We had booked a twin sea view room and my daughter emailed the Malia Maderia Mare to say it was for my birthday and requested a bottle of sparkling wine in the room and for the room to be on a high floor They emailed back to say they were full that week but would do there best. The room we were given was 1003 on the 10th floor a good sized superior sea view room with a huge balcony with 2 loungers and table and chairs the view was fantastic.The room was very clean lots of space.The bathroom was large with two sinks, a bath with a wet area at the side for a lovely powerful shower. There was also a separate toilet and bidet. Apart from a bottle of sparkling wine, there was also a small box of chocolates in our room and also every night at about 7-30pm a lady came to the door to give us a chocolate each which was all a lovely touch by the hotel for my birthday. There was a kettle in the room as I love my tea I did take my own teabags, as there is a shop across the road we got fresh milk and water that we could put in the fridge in the room. We were on B&B and there was everything you could imagine on the buffet, so much choice, lots of fruits and meats all manner of breads, chefs cooking omelettes and pancakes, sparkling water and wine, so much that even the most fussy of eaters would find something to eat. All served by very friendly staff. We spent one day around the pool and yes loungers are taken with towels put on, but even though the hotel was full we found loungers and the pool boy also got me an umbrella for some shade.There are lots of loungers and chairs also on the other levels around the hotel. We had drinks and lunch around the pool all nice. We didn't use the spa facility's but I did go into the indoor pool a couple of times and also the jacuzzi, the indoor pool is not very deep and you could see the people in the gym above. it was not very busy down there at all. We didn't eat in the restaurant at night time as there are lots of lovely restaurants around the hotel. All reasonably priced. We did go to Reid's Palace for afternoon tea not cheap but lovely. We went on the Cable car in Funchel to Monte, went in the Monte Palace Tropical garden at the top which are lovely gardens well worth the visit. We came down on the basket toboggans which was great fun. If you take a taxi from there ask for the price first, we didn't which cost us! All the other taxis we had were reasonably priced. We also went on a day trip to the west of the isle, Porto Moniz and surrounding areas and also a half day catamaran boat trip where we saw dolphins both worth doing. Madeira is a lovely Island and I would highly recommend the Melia Madeira Mare Hotel, Thank you for a lovely stay in your hotel you made our first visit to Madeira memorable and we would certainly stay again if we come back.More


Lovely first visit to Madeira

This is a great hotel. We had a good sized superior sea view room with a huge balcony, complete with 2 loungers, 3 chairs and a table. The bathroom was large with 2 sinks, bath and separate shower, and a separate toilet and bidet behind a frosted screen. The bedroom area had twin beds together which made a large double bed. Also free safe, minibar fridge, large wardrobe with drawers, desk, tea and coffee making items, and a sofa. The balcony got the sun from around 10 am to 5 pm, it seemed as though some of the other rooms only got sun on their balconies for a part of the day. There are a lot of sun bathing areas around the hotel as well as the pool area. Breakfast was brilliant, everything you could possibly want. The evening buffet was not so inspiring, mostly soup or salad for a starter, various meats and vegs/rice or pasta for main, and a reasonably good selection for dessert. No tea or coffee included though and at 28 euros each thought it was a bit expensive. Numerous local restaurants served up a better meal at a fraction of the price. The cleanliness and staff was excellent, and we found everyone very helpful and always ready to chat. All spoke excellent English, and some various other languages as well. They also appreciated a little effort at Portuguese! Air conditioning in the room was a bit hit and miss, but we didn't find it too warm in the room at night. All in all a brilliant week, the hotel is in a great area for shops and restaurants. It is very easy to get a bus into Funchal. Beware though if you have any problems with walking uphill, most of Madeira is very steep!!More


A little bit of heaven.

This was our first visit to Madeira and we were not disappointed. We stayed for one week in a side seaview room with balcony on 4th floor away from lifts, so no noise, perfect. Good size too, beautiful bathroom, two sinks and good shower and bath. Lovely pool area plus kiddies pool, though only a few children so no noise or activity games going on. Very peaceful and relaxing if thats your plan. Buffet breakfast top notch, plenty of choice. Had buffet dinner one evening at 28 euro a head but would not recommend it as no soft drinks included not even tea or coffee. Plenty other places across the road or behind hotel. Some days we had lunch at pool restaurant which was ok for convenience. So hotel great, room great and staff very pleasant.More


Loved it ❤️

Very hilly so not for the less mobile. Beautiful island, will be visiting again. Lots of lovely restaurants around the hotel. Cable car is a must. Over the 4 weekends in June they have a firework co petition at the marina in Funchal; we were lucky enough to experience the last one. We ad a fabulous meal at the marina with prime seats for the display. Lovely atmosphere, lovely people and very hot weatherMore

We arrived in Madeira after hearing good reports on how lovely it is All I can say is we haven't been disappointed the hotel is fantastic we have really enjoyed an upgrade to a suit well worth it The staff are superb and everything works! Only slight downside is the evening entertainment isn't always inspiring however present enough The al a carte restaurant is a real step up from the buffet area Thoroughly enjoyed the experience if you look there is a lot to do Loved it!
