Just back from a week at the Melia and can't think of 1 negative thing to say. Greeted with a madeira wine and shortcake on arrival by such friendly staff. he room was just lovely. Grounds with different beds (including balinese and in water beds). Breakfast was excellent every day. The staff are all young but couldn't be nicer. Nothing... More

Two of us stayed at this Hotel in June 2015 and couldn't fault a thing. Rooms are great, location great being a half hour walk into Funchal. Never a scramble for pool beds as an abundance of lounging and sitting areas. We only ate breakfast here as so many lovely restaurants close by but what we had was lovely. Good... More

When we arrived we were absolutely ecstatic that our room was available (11:40). We were prepared to wait until the standard 14:00 as is usually the norm with these types of hotel. Our bags were taken to our room despite other reviewers comments saying they don't take them. The room Well this is where the disappointment begins. The corridor to... More

The hotel is well located in Lido, Funchal, just in front of the ocean. It's possible to stand on our balcony and enjoy the ocean from our room that had plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and the employees are very friendly. The hotel has a outdoor and indoor giant pool and another... More

What a really lovely hotel in a very lovely island ! We had never been to Madeira before and did not know what to expect, but should not have worried. This hotel was one of the best holiday hotels we have stayed in, and we have stayed in lots ! Seemed more business than leisure, at first, but the staff,... More

If we had to say something immediately it would be simply the friendly professional staff who greeted us as if we hadn't been away. We returned to this hotel writhing 7 months so that must tell you something. This is the best hotel for location on the Lido with both restaurants and the Spar opposite, as someone else mentioned. But... More

We booked for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The hotel was lovely, room comfortable and spacious with a small balcony. Breakfast was a feast with almost everything you could think of. Hotel staff friendly and even arranged a bottle of bubbly in our room on our anniversary. Would love to revisit again.

Just returned this week from a fantastic one-week stay at the Melia Madeira Mare. The 5-star status of hotel is well deserved, with staff delivering a personal service to their guests. The room: - Upon check-in we were upgraded from a side sea view to a full sea view, compliments of the hotel. - It was large with two queen... More

Booked this hotel after reviewed on T/A . Took a superior room as recommended, not disappointed. Spar shop opposite for cheap drink, supermarket above that for even cheaper drink. There is any easy walk to Funchal but the Lido is at the bottom of a steep hill and it would have been great to access it from the hotel pool... More
