Excellent hotel with large and clean rooms, comfortable beds, well equipped bathrooms and balconies offering stunning views of the ocean. Very good restaurant offering many options for food and some options for wines. A little bit strange, not many Madeira wines are offered. Desserts must be reviewed/reselected. Too artificial desserts in this moment. Very friendly and open staff! Very good... More

Spent 4 nights and found the hotel provided a great base from which to explore the island. It's convenient for the centre of Funchal, a 10-15 minute walk and is surrounded by good restaurants and cafés. The hotel is modern and well appointed and we found the room very comfortable.

We enjoyed our visit so much a couple of years ago we went back for a 2nd time. We got a very good deal through the melia.com website which included EUR15 per room per day credit - handy for a round of drinks. We were also upgraded to a very nice premium oceanview room with large balcony on the 8th... More

The room was big and clean but the staff seemed not interested at best. The hotel also advertised to have SPA but that was charged extra and quite overpriced. I did not tried the dinner restaurant but the breakfast menu was ok - but lacking in variety and sometimes tasteless.

The hotel sits outside the main Funchal city centre however still plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and fresh fruit are alternated each day to provide some variety. Plenty of sunbeds by the pool and the hotel put on entertainment in the bar each night.

We have just returned from this hotel having spent 12 days over christmas and new year. What a disappointment! We chose the Melia because of a wonderful experience at the Melia in Bali some years ago. This hotel masquerades as a 5* when, at best it is a poor 4*. The Christmas decorations were minimal and looked as if they... More

Melia is a five-star hotel which totally deserves it ! We could take advantage of the many services that the hotel has, like a free garage, a spa, two heated pools (one inside and one outside), a nice restaurant where we ate very well and where the staff was really pleasant and two bars. The room was spacious, clean and... More

Had a brilliant stay here with my boyfriend in November for 5 nights. Good communication before our stay, transfers were organised with the hotel and they left a lovely treat in the room to help us celebrate our anniversary. Facilities were great, we loved the spa. You have to pay extra to use the sauna etc but that meant that... More

On checking in we were given a room on the 5th floor, as both hubby and I have Arthritis I asked if the room had twin beds? After a bit of a wait while they messed with computers the answer was, "It has now" and we were changed to the 3rd floor. The room was very nice, side sea view... More
