Reviewed October 9, 2013

From the moment we stepped into this hotel we were smitten. The appartment was the best we have stayed in.we have been to quite a few in our time,it was spotless could not fault anything, and im very fussy.All the staff were excellant.We had alovely view of the pool and the sea. Could even see the harbour, with the cruise liners coming in.The bathrooms were beautiful we had two. very clean. Our Maid very good. Hope to return soon. It was very quiet no rowdiness.

Room Tip: 5 th floor up the best.

Miramar was a fabulous experience for us! We truly had a sense of being in another country. It has an old charm and lovely gardens. But then we were not looking for a modern high rise experience. While we were there, the hotel was not crowded, mostly older people, like ourselves. The staff was great, Nicolai was especially helpful...We loved our room... and the fact that we could easily access the Village Resort for their pool and gardens too. It was like getting two hotels for the price of one. We loved the breakfast! For us it was included in our room price, so we really enjoyed starting out the day with a full breakfast in a lovely setting. The hotel location was perfect. We could easily walk into the town of Funchal or head down the road the other way to a small grocery store, bakery and more restaurants and shops. For some travelers, the older nature of the hotel and the fact that we only had to access to wifi in the reception area and the TV was an older model might have been a problem. But for us, we were there to relax and enjoy the island of Madeira...and we certainly did at the Miramar Garden Resort !

A calm hotel with the pool on the 3rd floor; our room was pleasant with a disappointing view but elsewhere the vista was wonderful. The Village apartments connected, both with glorious gardens. We did not use the restaurants, but found the location very convenient to walk into Funchal or stroll into the 'strip' of the hotel/restaurant area. The Miramar was a wonderful base for our holiday. Agree with Warren 1 about the 'Hole in One' pub.
We would go back, enjoyed a levada walk and the cable car but would hope for less cloud!

Agree with previous reviewers this hotel is 'adequate' but no more. We used it for breakfast which was OK and a bed, the pool at the nearby Carlton was so much better. As previous reviewers, only 1 of the advertised bars was open at at point during our stay and one of the restaurants never opened.

It is clean and tidy, the staff are pleasant but it is not a 21st century hotel and we would not consider 4*, also does not compare well to other Pestanas. Again watch out for the time shared/shared ownership folk

we stayed in this hotel back in june and the hotel and facilities were excellent. everything was clean and tidy.the pool area was tidy and quiet. no children!.
the gardens were fantastic and superbly maintained.
the staff were friendly and usually helpful especially the reception.
my only criticism is the breakfast and the hot food was a bit greasy and the milk for the cereal was
warm.

This is not a 4 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination. It advertises 2 restaurants a pool bar and a coctail bar. 1 restaurant and the two bars were not open for the whole of the 2 weeks we stayed. Surely this is against the law to advertise something then not offer it. The excuse at reception was that the bars and restaurants at the village were open. But as there is a dress code it would have meant getting dressed to get a drink from the pool bar after a trek to find it.
The appartment had very little natural daylight the balcony had a jungle in front of it and there was no view as a result. There was mildew around the vent for the air conditioning. The rooms were not insulated and the noise from furniture being dragged across the floor and doors being banged was dreadful. The towels were that worn you could see through them. We did not eat at the resteraunt in either place after listening to others so cannot coment on the food.
This hotel should be reported and have its star rating reduced. The hotel could do something about minimising the noise like adding rubber feet and door stops

Room Tip: higher floors will have less noise from neighbouring rooms but I would not guarantee it
