"Last minute booking!"
To US standards the hotel is more of a 4 star hotel, but it seemed that the ones on this island which are 5 star are quite similar in their standard, since we had a chance to see a couple when on the island. Overall the staff was quite nice and helpful for helping us in trying to organize our adventures. The gym was also quite nice with spinning bicycles, a warm indoor pool that was almost for oneself since no one was there, and a nice terrace overlooking the outdoor pool and ocean. Only crazy thing is the movie rental was about $14! Never seen that before. Overall a pleasant stay!

"Very good location"
Decent hotel in a great location at the west end of Funchal. Buses to and from centre stop very close to hotel. Good value-for-money restaurants all around. Mini bus trips go all over the island and are excellent with very good and informative drivers. Pool area of the hotel overlooks the ocean and just outside are lovely gardens and walkways. Our room on 9th floor was to the side but had good views. Many beautiful and free gardens to stroll through in the town.

"short break"
speedy check in despite being busy and very helpful information. all god - slight hitch on last day when a very large booking arrived and bar service dwindled to nothing but could see bar staff running around everywhere else. Fortunately left the day before the hotel warned that the restaurant was fully booked and all they offered was room service or a deal at a local restaurant.

Fabulous hotel, close to all restaurants, supermarkets etc. There is a the promenade walk in front of the hotel. Outdoor pool HEATED & large indoor heated pool for EVERYONE, not reserved for spa clients! rooms lovely & large 90% with side sea view we had 909. beds a little firm for me, but they are NOT cheap mattresses. breakfast good in nice bright room, can have it outside on terrace weather permitting. good free parking in underground carpark. not a tourist hotel but appears to be mainly business clients ( which suits us!) Madeira is a volcanic island i.e. nearly every road & path is a 1 in 3 except along the main seafront of Funchal. you do need to be quite fit to walk anywhere. do rent a car & see the island, it's beautiful. the new roads are excellent, albeit most of the time you spend in tunnels!

"Ideal location for exploring Madeira"
Hotel is outside central Funchal but can easily be reached by local buses, not expensive. Transport from the airport is not perfect and better communication is required. It pays to research the island and its transport system prior to arrival to make the best of the stay, e.g. local buses, attractions, etc.. Local arrangements with the right information are best.

"Excellent hotel"
We had a very pleasant stay in the Melia last week. The staff were friendly and very helpful Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent and there was always a chef on hand to make something if it was not already on offer. The hotel is nicely situated with an indoor and an outdoor pool. These are very well looked after and towels, sunbeds and umbrellas are available. There are plenty of restaurants of a good quality within walking distance of the hotel. Reid's Hotel is also within walking distance if you feel like trying their delightful afternoon tea! The excellent aerobus service from the airport runs right to the hotel. It takes about 40minutes and costs 8 euros return. There are a number of other local buses run past the hotel going into the centre of Funchal and also to places such as Monte which is at the top of the cable car.

"My Stay at Melia Madeira Mare"
Stayed 6 nights,a couple of negatives was the evening buffet meal to be on the expensive side so as we were on B&B basis after the first night we went to local restaurants which seemed better value.As a 5 star hotel I might have expected someone to take bags to room but other than that could not fault cleanliness, comfort, and the fact it was quiet with no noise in the late hours.

We stayed for one week in the Melia and had a very relaxing holiday. All the staff were friendly and helpful especially at reception.We stayed B and B and found the breakfasts to be of a high standard.The garden area and swimming pool were lovely and looked over the ocean. We particularly appreciated the comfortable sun loungers and the fact that they were always plenty to go round.The staff in the garden bar were great and the lunches were first class Well done everyone at the Melia! We look forward to out next visit.

"Great hotel, overlooking bay."
We spent a week at the Melia Mare hotel and were a party of three, two adults and my 93 year old mother. The hotel is in a great location, facing the promenade and the bay. Staff were welcoming and friendly, and my request for two rooms close together and near to the lifts was met. We arrived earlier than the check-in time and our rooms were ready for us, so we were able to relax by the pool after our early flight. Pool bar was an ideal location for lunch, and staff would also bring drinks and snacks to our loungers if we preferred. We had chosen B&B at the hotel so we ate out each evening and there are many good restaurants close to the hotel. We loved Goya for it's elegance and OTT decorations, Leenos Bar and Restaurant great too. Entertainment in the bar each evening was good, particularly the Brasilian guitarist. We organised a tour of the West coast of the island from a nearby company, and took a taxi into Funchal centre one evening for a concert in the Town Hall, also worth a visit for it's beautiful tiling and panelling. On our last day, we had an evening flight and the hotel provided a courtesy room free of charge for us to shower and change. This enabled us to enjoy the hotel facilities until we left.

"A perfect retreat close to town"
We had an 8 day stay at MMM and loved every minute. We had an upgrade (as there was a small confusion on our booking) from a side to front ocean view with our own loungers in the sun. The room was beautiful, clean and large. Both indoor and outdoor pools were fab and my other half enjoyed the gym. Food and drinks at the hotel were very reasonably priced. It's a short trip into town by bus or a pleasant approx. 30 minute walk. The sun came out too for our visit - an ideal winter break!

"Lovely hotel with good amenities"
We booked the hotel as part of a last minute decision to take a break in January. The hotel is relatively new and well laid out. The dining room is on the ground floor with access to outdoor seating and the pool area. The choice of food for breakfast was very good, the range and variety of items on the buffet was the widest I've ever seen. The hotel rooms are spacious with a large bathroom with two basins and a separate toilet. The room had a balcony with a view of the ground floor and the sea. It was generally clean and noise free. We didn't use the pool or spa facilities so cannot comment on those. The hotel is situated in the middle of a range of hotels with easy access to the promenade and close to the sea. It is a fair distance from the town centre and the old town - we walked and it took us 30-35 minutes but there are buses to the centre. There are several restaurants and cafes close to the hotel so it's possible to eat out easily, although the hotel does have a restaurant and bar with entertainment if you don't want to go out. All in all a good hotel and a nice place to stay

An excellent hotel in all aspects - location, service, facilities etc. The check in and check out process was fast and efficient. We were able to use the underground car park at no charge for ouer hire car. There were plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within a very short walk of the hotel, so B&B is definitely the best option. The hotel was relatively quiet so no issues with sun beds around the pool. Overall, we would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future,

"Great breakfast in all year sunshine"
5* breakfast - everything you could ask for and more. Personal omelette chef and coffee waiters on demand. Did not need to eat until evening. Best restaurant is 'IL Basilica', an Italian on the corner opposite the sea side of the hotel - Bolognese and lasagne superb and apple pie/with berries very unusual for an Italian. 3 restaurants opposite on road side only average with basic menus and some strange combinations of vegetables. Hotel itself is impressive - I will be looking to afford 5* again after this experience [always thought 4* was enough].

"Great Hotel"
Spent a week at the Melia Madeira Mare at the beginning of October. We found the hotel location was ideal for us because it wasn't in the centre of Funchal but only a 30 to 45 minute walk away.There were plenty of cafes & restaurants near by & a shopping centre just a 10 minute walk. There was a bus stop just outside the hotel next door. The hotel buffet breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice of fresh fruit, cereals, cheeses, hams, yogurts & hot dishes as well. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel even employed a falconer to fly his Harris hawk, Betty, to make sure the pigeons were kept away at breakfast time. It was very entertaining to watch her swooping over the pool. The rooms were clean & spacious & were cleaned every day with clean towels provided if required. There were plenty of comfortable sun loungers by the pool or on the sea facing terraces with pool towels provided. We only ate one evening in the hotel restaurant as there were so many good restaurants near by. The food we had was very good & a reasonable price but they do charge a 1.50 Euros per person cover charge which I thought was a bit of a cheek if you're staying at the hotel. The hotel had a spa, which we didn't use, looked quite pricey & a well equipped gym which we made good use of. They have some free classes, core work in the gym & zumba in the indoor pool. We really enjoyed our stay at the Melia Madeira Mare & will definately stay there again

"Fabulous Melia Madeira Mare Hotel"
Just stayed here (April 2014) with my husband and another couple. I don't think I have ever stayed in any hotel before and been able to say that all members of staff are friendly and helpful. The cleaners, the bar staff, the reception staff and of course the restaurant staff. Fatima in particular was absolutely brilliant, she was quick to respond to requests and she actually remembered what we all drank each morning with breakfast. The room was perfect, we didn't want for anything and toiletries etc were replaced immediately. We stayed in a side sea view room and didn't have any complaints. On our departure we were allowed to keep our rooms until 3pm which was wonderful. The hotel is in a great position with wonderful views and there are lots of restaurants in the surrounding area. We loved it here and will definitely be back.

"Nice but not sure I'd rate it 5* (good 4* maybe)"
Well situated on the fringe of Fuchal's hotel zone. It's a pretty long walk into town but the bus stop is only about 200 yards away and the service is regular and cheap. Some nice eating options close by. It was our first visit to Madeira and we really enjoyed the holiday. Getting out of town and doing some levada walking is well worth doing. The inter-urban bus service is effective and reliable (get a pre-loaded Giro card for convenience). This island has so many choices that everyone should find something to enjoy. Our visit to the Botanical Gardens was disappointing - maintenance should be better given that this is one of Madeira's showcases. We felt sorry for the exotic birds on display and thought they deserve better than rows of (often empty) steel cages with concrete floors.
