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.

Nice hotel in a good location

Nice hotel located in the "hotel district" of Funchal next to the Lido Promenade. Easy access to the town centre either walking or by bus, very good bus service to the airport. Nice, clean rooms with balconies where you can eat and enjoy sea view. Good breakfast with great selection of cold and hot food. Very friendly staff always happy to give advise not only were to eat but also what to eat or drink.More

Good but not 5 Star hotel

This is a package deal hotel and lacks the soul of a proper 5 star hotel. It has a cold unwelcoming reception. Rooms are standard fare but lack the touches that would make a 5 star rating, bedding is cheap and the pillows awful foam ones. There are no sockets by the bed unless you dig around. Bathroom is fine but broken cracked glass tiles around the fixtures let it down. Breakfast is very good and cannot be faulted for a buffet style nosebag before the long walks of the day. The lobby bar is even more soulless being like a waiting area. In the evening varying quality of live music was played at the far end of the bar in what is essentially a corridor. If Fillipe had not been on the bar it would not have been worth the night cap or pre-dinner, he was by far the most helpful member of staff. The bar needs to be a bar or a pub with a bit of soul. In all we stayed over 14 nights and we felt robbed for the money we had paid for a package deal. We will be going back to booking independently and planning ahead more.More

Carefree Madeira

If you are looking for a place to go where the sun shines and the sea is blue - but without the excessive drinking mob or squabbling families - Madeira is it. Its anything but boring and has attractions for all ages, but really if you are into walking/hiking then you are in the right place. We booked a week (wish it had been three) late January and this Hotel had some good offers on. The place is only a few years old and it is brilliant, the staff are polite, speak good English and are friendly - from receptionists to housekeeping. The rooms have A/C, Safe, Mini Bar, Tea/Coffee, Bath, shower, twin hand basins, robes, Flat screen TV with satellite channels and a sea facing Balcony. And the sea is only 3 minutes walk down the road - with paths in both directions along the coast. The facilities are all you could want, saunas, spa, dance classes, live music, heated pools, bars, room service, beauty treatments, attentive staff etc. If you didn't want to leave the hotel you wouldn't have to...but then you would miss Madeira! Go walking, take a trip up into the hills, go onto the plateau, swim in the warm clear sea and eat & drink at anyone of the scores of really good bistros and restaurants and bars. Melia Madeira Mare is almost without fault, it was for us a great place to stay while we explored the island...and they can also help you to do that too. There are other hotels which are on par and I have no doubt that they will give you the same comfort and service. This is partly due to the nature of the Portuguese people, and also to correct balance of development to environment. We were there during low season and some places were quiet, but I would go back, pretty much anytime, because there is a lot we still haven't seen and I know that despite the increase in numbers, the Island will not be spoilt. Go to Madeira. Stay at the Melia Madeira Mare. Enjoy.More

Melia Madeira Mare

We had a weeks break here , second week of February. Only a 15 - 20 minute transfer from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is modern and very clean. Our room was spacious and everything worked. Nice modern bathroom, balcony with a sea view to the right. Tea making facilities in room. Free safe. The indoor pool and Jacuzzi were so quiet it was almost exclusively ours. Food is buffet service and was lovely. Everything you could wish for at breakfast, and most nights had choice of fish or meat plus salads and fruits were always available. Staff were friendly and helpful and always with a smile. Perfect for a quiet break. Nearby local coffee shops and restaurants were very reasonably priced. ( 2 fresly made coffees and 2 sticky buns only € 3.50 ). Local entertainment every evening in the bar. Couldn't think of one bad thing about the hotel.More

Lovely hotel

Stayed here for a week on our first visit to Madeira. Holiday booked through Cosmos. Hotel is in a good setting in the Lido area, and slightly off the bustle of the main road. Nonetheless it's perfectly feasible to walk into the town centre if you wish, alternatively the no's 1 and 2 buses go past the door. Room was very pleasant, well kitted out, and kept spotlessly clean. Had one or two electrical glitches during our stay but these were promptly and cheerfully fixed. Excellent Wifi system, very fast. We were on a B&B tariff, so can only speak for the breakfasts - the selection of food on offer is vast and very varied, we really couldn't fault it at all. I could mention the porridge which appeared every other day - absolutely delicious and a great fortification if you are going off on a levada walk! We didn't use the pools but they looked great, the outdoor one was notably spotless. One thing not quite so good - if you are in the rooms numbered 401 to 406, you are above the reception and one of the bars. Several evenings there was live music there until 11pm, and one occasion, having gone to bed early, the volume seemed to gradually increase, in particular the drumming was very insistent through the floor. I was about to pick up the phone to complain when the volume dropped again, presumably someone else had complained. I mention this on checking out and suggested that the staff on duty in reception in the evenings should keep an eye on the music volume. Overall our stay was great. All the staff we encountered were cheerful and polite, but not intrusive - they leave you alone unless you need something, and that's just as it should be. We'd go back there.More
