Bruno, Joel and Marta are really great hosts - friendly, always willing to help or advise and the daily fresh bread and initial welcome pack a real treat. The rooms are clean and comfortable and although it is out of town the bus service all across Funchall is good and there are two routes which go very near Vila Marta.... More

A big Thank You to our hosts Joel, his son Bruno and the entire staff at Vila Marta for welcoming us with such genuine warmth and local Madeira hospitality. The fresh rolls every morning and the wealth of local tips and information were much appreciated and made for a wonderful and highly rewarding stay for us on Madeira. The property... More

Joel and his son Bruno are the greatest hosts you will ever meet. Their hotel is immaculate and the amenities are many. We spent nine nights as if in the comfort of our own home. The kitchenette was fully equipped and I was able to prepare our vegan meals with foods I bought at the nearby supermarket. Every morning we... More

We booked our sea view studio at Vila Marta after reading reviews from others and we have really enjoyed our stay here. The owners made us welcome by arranging a transfer from the airport, putting fruit into the room, driving us to the nearby supermarket and restaurant on arrival and when we left giving us Madeira cake and wine. The... More

If you're looking for the perfect hosts, Vila Marta is the place to choos while in Funchal. And - if you are not dependent on being very close to the city center. Its best to have a car, but if you don't, the owner and his son are most helpful to get you around; if its to the grocery shop,... More

Difficult to beat this place as long as you think about positive properties of a hotel and what you paid for it! Situated between the Sea and the Expressway, the hotel is excelling in cleanliness, friendliness and attention. Before arrival, we were asked about arrival time to make sure the room is ready. We got a map of the surrounding... More

Vila Marta is lovely not only because of the accommodation, but because of the hosts. This family did more than expected to make our stay memorable... Fresh bread in the morning, Madeira wine on arrival... (and departure), and honey cakes too! They transported us into town when it was raining, and helped us find a driver/guide for our stay. (We...

We had a wonderful experience at Vila Marta. Our efficiency apartment was well equipped, very comfortable, and included a balcony with an ocean view. Joel and his son Bruno could not have been more welcoming and helpful to us during our stay. We traveled in Portugal for ten days and stayed in six accommodations. This was the best one by... More
