Stayed for four nights in a master suite, the first visit for two years. Once again it had stunning views, a large terrace with sunbeds and good accommodation. The breakfasts are fine and I only had one lunch at the pool bar which was good. A strange 'chocolate delivery' service in the evenings rather than a turn down or towel... More

See my previous review of May 2013. The Melia has retained its high standards since our last visit. Excellent modern accommodation with very high hygiene standards.Good location for easy access into Funchal centre. Reception staff welcoming and instructive. Daily maid service is very efficient. So many staff to compliment, such as Hugo and Felipe at the bar, Fatima, Solange (Trainee)... More

In a superb location on the promenade & the staff are a credit to the hotel.Nothing to much trouble for any of them. Free Wi-Fi connection all over the hotel including the pool area. If anybody...

We booked a garden room, so not sure what to expect. We were delighted that we had been given room 309, which opened up on to a terrace with a slight sea view, which was a bonus. The room was spacious and comfortable. We were particularly impressed with the bathroom. The breakfast was delicious. We never had a problem finding... More

All in all a great hotel with very friendly staff. We especially liked the buffet in the evenings, and the breakfast was also delicious. The only thing that was a bit anoying at times was the noise at night from the lido up front; it seems the kids like enjoying after hours out there followiing their night club sprees. But... More

Unusually we found our experience of this hotel did not match many of those on TA. The Melia calls itself a resort hotel but to us was more like a city centre business hotel which did not compare to most other 5 star resort hotels we have stayed at. The style is very modern and fairly minimalistic, functional but lacking... More
