Nice hotel located in the "hotel district" of Funchal next to the Lido Promenade. Easy access to the town centre either walking or by bus, very good bus service to the airport. Nice, clean rooms with balconies where you can eat and enjoy sea view. Good breakfast with great selection of cold and hot food. Very friendly staff always happy... More

This is a package deal hotel and lacks the soul of a proper 5 star hotel. It has a cold unwelcoming reception. Rooms are standard fare but lack the touches that would make a 5 star rating, bedding is cheap and the pillows awful foam ones. There are no sockets by the bed unless you dig around. Bathroom is fine... More

Stayed for 2 weeks at Christmas, (our fourth time). A modern hotel in a very convenient position, with all the amenities you would expect in a 5star hotel, the staff are very helpful, the rooms large and comfortable. A excellent, comfortable base for a relaxing holiday.

Far from being a 5 Star hotel, but the hotel was clean and airy, but was just very functional, our room was large and super sea view. Been to two Melia hotels previously but this hotel fell far below there standards. Very poor service in the restuarant- had great trouble just to get a drink at dinner, few waiters and... More

This was our second visit to the Melia in Funchal and once again we were not disappointed. The rooms are excellent, large, comfortable & with side or full sea view. They are spotlessly clean & modern with tea & coffee facilities which some hotels no longer provide. There is free wi-fi throughout with a good signal in all areas including... More

Not on the central part of Funchal but on a quieter end, this hotel is modern and comfortable. You have some wonderful views to the sea and the common areas of the hotel are gorgeous. Nice place to rest and recharge batteries.
