“Ruhiges Hotel mit guter Küche”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

On our two weeks walking trip on Madeira we spent two nights with half-pension in this hotel and were very content. Our spacious room had a large balcony with a beautiful view on the sea. The hotel is situated at the end of a street and therefore rather quiet. The staff was very friendly and the buffet-dinner was excellent, by far the best during our holidays. But for a longer stay you need a car to explore the surroundings.

This modern hotel has a stunning view over the Atlantic Ocean. There are two splendid swimming pools, one of them indoor. The kitchenette is well equipped.

We stayed here and were not at all impressed. The hotel was grubby and nothing like the pictures we saw prior to booking. One morning at breakfast there was mould on the bread we were served. The food was really poor. The pool was dirty and cold. Not good!

We had a wonderful holiday in Madeira and we enjoyed staying in Paul do Mar - but the aparthotel was a sad and neglected place. The equipment in the rooms (so-called kitchenette) was absolutely minimal, the decor dreary and the whole place looked as if it was in bad need of refurbishment. Only one of the lifts was in working order so there were some long waits in this quite big hotel. On the positive side - the balcony had great views and some sun and the swimming pool was a delight and better maintained than the hotel.

Room Tip: Without a sea view I wouldn't want to be in this hotel

I booked my 1-night stay at Aparthotel Paul do Mar because the north of Madeira seemed quiet cold and damp in January and I thought it would be good to escape to a warmer climate! And even though this hotel is only 20 km away (as the crow flies) from where I was staying there was such a difference in the weather and the flora. There was a lovely warmth about the region in general. The hotel was smart enough. In fact the room was very smart indeed. I did not expect that given the range of mixed reviews I had read on the place. Even though I took the lift to the wrong floor and found a cockroach graveyard the habitated public areas were all very clean. The outdoor pool was fantastic. In fact of my 6 hotels in Madeira the pool was the best one by a long way! I really liked both staff members I saw during my stay. The stay was only €30 excluding breakfast so very cheap. The hotel is almost at the back end of beyond but for 1 night that had a beautiful charm. Not a great deal to do at night but I'd certainly pass by for another night (probably not longer) for the pool and chilled atmosphere next time I visit Madeira.

This place is okay considering that most of the people that come here stay at their own vacation homes or with friends. That's no doubt the reason this is the only hotel of any size in Paul do Mar. It's at the very west end of town but you can walk the entire town in 15 minutes so the location isn't a problem. The air conditioning worked poorly like a lot of small European hotels, and as Paul do Mar is one of the warmest villages on Madeira you will need aircon in the summer months. The breakfast is nothing to rave about but suitable. If you like to hike there is a trail across the parking lot that zig-zags up about 1500 feet to the top of the cliff where the view is sensational.

The hotel is clean and most of the young staff can speak four or five languages. If you want to swim in the ocean there is a small pier just down the street. Sunsets from the hotel are wonderful especially from a grass patio on the fourth floor.
