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

It is hard not to agree with the other reviews of Vila Marta: Joel and Bruno go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable and fun. They suggested activities for us, helped us to book a walk and a spa visit, and even dropped us off when we needed a lift somewhere nearby. The hotel is... More

The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean with everything you could need for your stay. Beds were particularly comfortable with lovely linen. It is not the best location but the number 45 bus will take you to Funchal centro and runs quite regularly and quite late. On arrival we were presented with a timetable which proved most useful. There is... More

The hosts at this B&B are the best we've ever had (and we travel a lot). They go out of their way to orient you on the island and to help you have fun. The rooms are large: bathroom, kitchen, living/dining room, and balcony with table overlooking the Atlantic. No other hotel on the island can match the amenities and... More

This is a great place to stay! The owners will do anything to help you. We were taken to the shops for food, dropped off to pick up a hire car and they even offered to drive me to the beach so I could go for a run. The apartments have everything you need to eat in or you can... More

We have just had the best stay at Vila Marta and echo all the praise given by other previous guests. We booked to come for a stay to Madeira at quite short notice and were really lucky to discover Villa Marta on Trip Advisor. Joel and Bruno couldn't do enough for us if we needed help, but equally were not... More

We had a fab time at Vila Marta - Joel & Bruno made us feel incredibly welcome & looked after us really well. They helped to arrange a taxi from the airport and when we arrived we were greeted with an aperitif of Madeira & the offer of being picked up for dinner by the local restaurant (where the food...

When choosing where to stay in Madeira we saw the excellent reviews for Villa Marta - some of the best we have come across. Am delighted to report they are all still relevant and true!
