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.

We stayed here for 10 days, I'm 18, my sister 15 and my brother 4. We couldn't fault this hotel. Everything was super clean, the beds were comfy, views perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast spread was wonderful with fresh fruits, pastries, pancakes, omelettes made to order, various cooked breakfast items and cold meats and cheeses- basically anything you'd want. Our rooms were air conditioned and the bathrooms spacious and clean. Our rooms serviced everyday and turned down on our first night too! We didn't visit the spa or use the indoor pool but both facilities looked incredible! We managed to get 5 sunbeds together every morning around 8/9am and there was beds available throughout the day. The pool area staff couldn't have been more helpful in finding beds and parasols upon request. The pool area is very peaceful but my brothers excitement and occasional squealing in the pool wasn't frowned upon. We were slightly worried about him considering the nature of the hotel and the reviews but do not be concerned to bring children here. There weren't many children but he was perfectly welcome. As for the surrounding area, we only went out for one of our 10 days. The hotel is surrounded by plenty of fabulous bars and restaurants with live music and great food you don't need to worry about going far afield. With an inflatable obstacle course and water sports right on the doorstep of the hotel we had a few very exciting afternoons. We found a wonderful volcanic pebble beach just a 15 min walk from the hotel & the centre of Funchal is a very short and very cheap bus ride away. Definitely recommend the cable car & tobogganing experience! There was live music at the hotel every night with a variation of genres and musicians which we thoroughly enjoyed listening to. We had a fantastic 10 days (despite my sister being unwell for the first few days which on a side note brings me to the amazing staff who couldn't do enough to help & the fantastic medical staff in the local hospital.) Definitely recommend this hotel, even to families with small children. We couldn't fault it. More

Hannah E,

Great hotel but not 5 star

When we arrived, we were told we needed to pay our stay upfront as unfortunately we booked it via LowCost rubbish holiday who went bankrupt a day before...typical.. Anyway, it was not the hotel`s fault. Our room was spacious enough, the bathroom was well equipped and we had a small balcony with a table and chairs looking onto the street which meant it was busy and quite noisy even during the night. The beds were firm and the room was cleaned and tidied every day to a satisfactory level. The communal parts (bar, restaurants, library, inside and outside pools) were lovely, there was some entertainment every evening in the bar and the pool and sunbed lounge looked onto the ocean. There are plenty enough great restaurants around the hotel, so you cannot go hungry, Our deal was bed and breakfast, and the breakfast was substantial and good quality. The hotel supplies towels for your sunbathing which is brilliant but the hotel lacks in sunbeds, therefore people leave their towels on the sunbeds either overnight or get up at 6 and sneak down before the pool is open (9 am), also some people just leave their towels on the sunbeds for the whole day and turn up late afternoon or for a couple of hours and leave again which is very irritating. Free sunbed hunting is an everyday issue, prepare yourself (and it`s not a German tourist ridden hotel either!). The other reason I would not give five star is the slow wifi. If the hotel was four stars, I would give 5 stars for rating but not for a 5 star hotel. All in all we had a pleasant and lovely holiday, we would stay here again.More

Amazing stay!!

Visited the hotel last week of July and had a lovely stay. The bedroom was on 10th floor with fabulous views over the ocean, the perfect view to wake up to everyday!! The staff at the hotel were fantastic, from reception, to the housekeeping staff and the food and beverage staff. The hotel is very welcoming and all the staff are very friendly. There are many restaurants and bars located nearby and the bar by the ocean has Jazz every evening. I would definitely return and would like to explore Madeira more as its a beautiful island and has a lot to offer. Thank you Melia Madeira Mare and to Tina de Nobrega and Arsenia Nobrega for making our stay so lovely.More

Pleasant hotel, helpful staff, spacious rooms with sea views

We stayed in the Melia for a week at the end of July/beginning of August and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly, in particular those at reception, at breakfast and the girl who attended to our room. The breakfasts were great with a good of variety of foods and a great range of fresh fruits. The hotel was very clean and well maintained throughout. There were many areas to sit out and enjoy the sunshine including our balcony and terraces and there was a good sense of space both inside and outside. There were ample opportunities for walks in the vicinity of the hotel which is situated close to the sea. Thank you to the staff.More

Mary M,

Nice hotel

Just come back from a weeks holiday stayed at the Melia nice hotel but few things I noticed.Shower round the pool hit and miss also you still get people putting towels on the beds and going out for the day selfish plus there is a sign up saying not to do this.No hand gel when you go in to the restaurant which I was very surprised about.Indoor pool when you are swimming in it they will come and clean it should that not be done in the morning before people get in it.Staff very nice rooms very nice and clean I was on the 4th floor side sea view the maids are lovely and very pleasant and work hard.would go back Maderia is beautiful.More
