Not really up to expectations
We needed to book a hotel quite late so the prices were high everywhere. Though of trying out Melia as it was indeed pricey too but seemed to have value. Unfortunately, we thought the price/quality did not meet and there are several reasons why: -The room ("Side seaview") was very noisy, although we got a room on the 9th floor and asked for a quiet room. The room was on the west side of the building and directly facing another hotel (they can see inside your room). You have two main roads just next to the balcony and the other hotel's ventilation system making huge noise. We could not hear each other if one was inside and one on the balcony. Also, you can hear everything from the corridor, especially when people closed the doors. -The wifi did not work for the first 8-12h. We complained 3 times and then they came to reboot the router. We complained immediately when coming to the room, twice at the front desk. Only when we called something happened. The wifi seemed unreliable also at other times and locations. Not a 5-star experience. -The breakfast buffet is quite varied but somehow there was not much to choose from. It started to be dull already the 2nd day. The omelets are of course nice, but e.g. sausages are really cheap and nothing like in other hotels in Madeira. Where is the local flavour? Also you needed to get the coffee only from the service people, sorry to say to coffee tasted really like on an airplane. Big plus for the sparkling wine! -The pool area is big and there was always space which is great. The bar was ok priced (especially daily specials), but two things that again take your mind out of the hotel being 5 stars: No service to the sunchairs (I am sure they would triple the sales by doing it) and usually not even any picking up of old glasses :-(. Also, they won't bring food to the sunchairs even though you would order from the bar. We did not feel like sitting in the restaurant section for an hour just to wait for some pizzas so we never ate there. Also, you need you can only get 1 towel which covers 50% or the sunchair and you get it only by giving out a flyer. Never was there any person to take the flyer though, so after the first day we learned you just need to walk inside the staff room and get the towel yourself. -Free parking and really clean parking house downstairs. -Leeno's Bar and Restaurant: located in the same building, a really good restaurant if you like meat on a hot stone. -When we checked in the service was attentive and nice. Of course no one told that the indoor pool was closed but we had found about it through TripAdvisor beforehand. When checking out, no one asked how our stay was. This is not a 5-star hotel way.More
Would stay again
This hotel is in an ideal,location for getting out and about if you want to or if you just want a peaceful time. The breakfasts are very good , the evening meals could do with a bit more variety on occasions but all in all good quality food. The sunbeds are plentiful, some recline and some are fixed.The pool is fine but there are some missing tiles and they need to fix this, but it doesn't detract to much from having a dip. The price for drinks is average in hotels but there are plenty of bars and restaurants around in fact your spoilt for choice. Would I recommend this hotel ? Most definitely and would return.More
Good but room for improvement
This hotel has lovely facilities, indoor outdoor pool , plenty of sun beds and parasols,spa facilities . Room was spacious clean and lovely sea view. Morning one breakfast couldn't find a clean table inside or out so decided to sit outside and a waiter muttered he would be back to tidy it up . 10 minutes later still sat at a dirty table so I started moving plates myself only for a waiter to start telling me off . Next task was to get a cup of coffee, this took another 5 minutes - waiters just seemed to keep their head down. Morning Two- same experience with no tables available and not been tidied up, then a young waitress cleared the table , I said ' good morning ' as she looked so glum but reply was just 'coffee' at least we were going to get a cup of coffee rather than chase around for one. Morning Three- had we had the same experience as the previous two days we were not going to take breakfast at the hotel anymore. Well clean available tables and smiling waiters - wow what a difference someone greeting to you and actually made you feel welcome. I must say this did continue over the holiday but what a horrible first impression . I wouldn't expect that in a 5 start hotel and if the hotel is busy they should have more staff and also staff that can be cheerful! The food choice at breakfast was good. The reception staff was always cheerful and helpful . The two ladies in the bar in the evening were lovely. Not 5 star service !!!More
Definitely 5-star standard
We had a pleasure to be a guest of Melia Hotel in Funchal in August 2017. It was a very nice stay. Mainly because of extremely kind and professional approach of Melia staff. We were extremely satisfied. Special thanks to Ms. Christina Conceição - we appreciate her highest standard of customer care. It was definitely 5-star standard.More
