A very peaceful hotel in absolutely fabulous surroundings and gardens, its in a place thats a cross between The Dominican Republic and Chillie. The views from the out door pool are stunning. Lovely indoor pool and free spa area, Squash court but no gym. Room was fine, very clean, service and food not over the top but all excellent. a... More

Be ready to rent a car for the whole stay (they offer you it at the reception, the price is around 60 euros (50 per day + 12 euros per day for the insurance)). If the car is not available - you will be stuck in the hotel for the rest of your vacations. The only reasonable time to take... More

I checked in and out of the hotel in the same day... I believe that it was a great hotel when it was built, but now it is very poorly maintained.. The water in the swimming pool is not clear (I wouldn't put my daughter in there), the grass is poorly maintained, the air conditioning in the room doesn't work,... More

Most of the staff were fantastic and friendly, with one exception. The location was stunning, right on the coast. However, it is very remote. Unfortunately, without a car there are only 3 buses a day during the school holidays. The hotel was probably stunning when it was first built but is looking a bit shabby now. Particularly the indoor pool... More

This was my fourth visit to the Monte Mar Palace, which is a smallish hotel, worthy of its 4* rating. It is in a quiet spot on the north of the island and understandably many people hire cars whilst there, there is a usable and cheap bus service to get about in addition to the courtesy bus to Sao Vincente...

This Hotel is situated on the North side of the Island, with great views over the Atlantic. Hotel amenities are very good with outdoor and indoor pools Jacuzzi and Spa facilities. Decor a little dated but comfortable and very clean. For a quiet holiday this ideal. Small village a walk away with limited shops and cafe's. Beautiful Island and scenery,... More

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks in May 2015, and was impressed by this modern, well-equipped hotel, which is situated on the quieter, northern coast of Madeira and which enjoys stunning views out to sea. Behind the hotel, is the small village of Ponta Delgada, backing on to some impressive-looking hills. The hotel offers many facilities which are... More

OK it is not in Funchal with the rest of the holiday stuff - OK there are not sea front promenades - OK the pool is not Olympic sized with water features and OK the entertainment is not from X factor runner ups. If that is what you want then this is not the place for you. I wanted a... More

Just enjoyed superb week at the Monte Mar Palace. The quality of the hotel is excellent for the price range, with very comfortable bedrooms and public areas. The restaurant buffet was exceptionally good and varied, with at least four choices of main course at both lunch and dinner. The staff throughout the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly.

Just returned from this hotel which has fantastic views, but as the previous reviewer has pointed out is rather remote with very average food". The rooms were clean and all appeared to have a sea and mountain view. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who has limited mobility or is not physically fit to cope with the gradients...
