My wife and I recently visit Madeira for the first time and let me say we were made most welcome wherever we went. We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel and found all members of staff which we came into contact with most helpful, kind and friendly. From alighting out of the taxi on the day of our... More

We stayed at the Melia this September,.loved it!! The rooms are spacious with a great bathroom, his and her sinks, and great power shower. Cleaned everyday, with fresh towels everyday, and you can have your bed linen changed as often as you like by leaving the card on the bed. The whole hotel is spotless, well done cleaning staff. We...

Lovely clean hotel in a great position & with excellent facilities. Large comfortable rooms with side or front sea views. We has a side view on 8th floor, it suited us as it only got sun in morning/early afternoon and so didn't make room too hot for sleeping without need to have aircon on full blast. Good range of toiletries.... More

Enjoyed our return visit to Melia Mare. Again we received the room requested although on a lower floor than last time (requested walk-in shower). Breakfast was fine, lovely omelettes cooked to order, more fresh fruit would be appreciated but the coffee situation still needs addressing but we were OK as we used a bit of comedy and were remembered. Some... More

This hotel is by no means a 5 Star establishment. (We arrived from a 5 star hotel in Lisbon and there is no comparison.) Also it lets the Melia brand name down - we have stayed in other Melia properties in Europe, and again there is no comparison. Upon arrival after 14.00 we were told the room was not ready,so... More

Beautiful, spacious, modern 5 star hotel. We had a room on 7th floor with side view of the sea. Spacious bedroom and bathroom (two sinks which were great, radio in bathroom), very clean, great bed, couldn’t fault it. The receptionist and breakfast staff were lovely, receptionist extremely helpful. Large outdoor swimming pool with enough comfortable sunbeds for everyone, lovely view... More

We arrived here yesterday and are pleased with our choice of hotel. It is located in a great spot, on a bus line, walking distance to town, and right on the water.

Stayed mid Sep '14, arrived around 8/9 pm not exactly welcomed with open arms, but cheerful none the less. Given directions to room, no 5* help, we had to make our own way with the luggage.

Supposedly 5 star hotel....but it is more like a 3-4 star hotel. They need to have a big overhaul of staff and get rid of some dead wood. Some of the staff are great (eg. Fatima in the poolside bar is fantastic), but most of the waiters are awful, moody, unhelpful...looking like they would rather be anywhere else other than... More
