We found the Vila Marta ‘hotel’ very acceptable. We say ‘hotel’ but it’s more like staying with family as there are no high rise hotel-like buildings nearby. Only a direct view (over banana plants) to the Atlantic Ocean. The owner Joel and his son Bruno run this family hotel and are VERY hospitable offering guidance, info and help. Rooms are... More

Just got back from 5 nights at Vila Marta run by the Alves family and found it a great base for the holiday. They arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport at a very reasonable price and one to take us back , as well as explaining the bus route and providing us with a timetable. Rolls... More

We stayed in this hotel in May 2016 and had a great experience. The hotel was easy to find from the airport (close to a motorway junction) and there are plenty of parking spaces on the quiet road outside the hotel. We were greeted by Joel on arrival and given a tour of the hotel, which is fairly small (9... More

We wanted to avoid big hotel breakfasts and the feeling that we had paid to stay somewhere nice so we needed to hang around the pool rather than get outside and explore Madeira. That thinking led us to book Vila Marta which was rated No1 in this category. Everything you will read in the other reviews about the experience of... More

We just got back a week ago from a delightful holiday in Madeira, where we stayed at Vila Marta run by Alves family. The guest house commentaries from all the previous visitors were all true! The place is very clean and the area is situated in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful sea-view. It's not in the center of Funchal... More

A low budget top efficient hotel in suburbs of Funchal with magnificent sea view. With a rented car the location was not a problem. Access to central Funchal for evening activities also easy with local bus. Hotel run by the Alves family. They were very helpful. Gave us good advice and support. The hotel is very functional.

The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful and there was a relaxed happy atmosphere. It is situated on a quiet road away from any traffic noise but is handily placed for the major road network and a short walk to the local bus services.

Our room was furnished with high quality furniture and curtains. It was kept meticulously clean on a daily basis, with regular supply of fresh laundry. The whole villa very well maintained.
