"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"What an awesome stay"
The hotel is beautiful and the staff were wonderful. The hotel is located in a great spot which is great for catching the hop on hop off bus. The resturant for breakfast was wonderful and had lots to choose from. The staff in the resturant were so nice and funny to get along with. I would definately recommend to stay there when your in Funchal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a pleasant place to stay"
good location - right on the seafront, although 3km to the main town. however, buses quick and cheap. hotel breakfast was excellent - wide selection of foods to suit all tastes. outdoor pool was excellent - very large, and a comfortable temperature. nice and quiet between 5-6pm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice modern hotel with a lovely view :-)"
We had a great stay in this hotel. The room had a balcony with side view of the sea and sun in the evening so it was perfect to relax. Good breakfast buffet, nice staff and pool area. You could easily walk in to the centre of Funchal in 20-25 minutes, but there was a lot of different restaurants in the area around the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant stay in clean and spacious hotel. Good transport links to centre of Funchal and close to a good range of restaurants and bars. Staff were helpful and friendly and hotel was exactly as described.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice location however a lot of construction nearby"
Lack of ambience in the dining room need background music to prevent it feeling like a canteen rather than an expensive restaurantGenuine Expedia guest review
had a lovely time here, great location if you do a b & b basis as restaurants a walking distance away. very hilly so that would be difficult if not able to climb steps. hotel has 2 swimming pools both of which I used. breakfast plenty of choice but same choices most of the days. couldn't fault the staff very friendly and spoke good English.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Swimming out of action all week!"
Nice hotel and a good location. Very pleasant staff. However on our arrival we were told the outdoor swimming pool was being repaired and wouldn't be available "for a day or so". It was not available for the duration of our stay (one week). Although when we enquired after three days we were told we could use the swimming pool at the hotel next door […] this wasn't satisfactory. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great luxurious room and excellent value for money"
Price of room was excellent for such a luxurious hotel; room was exceptionally clean, cosy and comfortable. The hotel had an outdoor and even better - an heated indoor swimming pool which was great. The equipment at the mini gym was pretty decent as well. The hotel receptionists were very friendly and approachable; they helped to solve many of my problems […] on the island, especially with the booking of tours. Buffet breakfast was very yummy with a wide variety of food available for selection. All in all, a great hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wonderful in every way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel, very well placed for reaching the promenade which runs along the south coast into Funchal one way and Camara do Lobos the other. Good for buses, walking and shops. Several terraces as well as poolside for relaxing on, in sun or shade. Breakfast was magnificent - so much choice!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"A very nice 4*.... Not quite 5*"
The hotel it's self is very well presented and the staff are great, welcoming and helpful. It's very spacious and in a really good location, 5 mins walk to bars and restaurants. The daily cleaning of the hotel pool side facilities needs some improvement...we noticed the pool side toilets were not being cleaned regularly, And the daily cleaning of the […] bathrooms could be to a higher standard. This s a very nice 4* hotel, it just needs a little tweak here and there to be 5* Breakfast buffet is lovely with lots of fresh fruits and a cooked range also. It's a quiet older clientele which will suite people looking for a peaceful holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modern, clean relaxing hotel"
Modern, bright clean hotel with staff pleased to help and a relaxed atmosphere. Had asked for a quiet room with a large balcony and that was exactly what we got - it was excellent. Good choice of food at breakfast buffet. Very limited choice for vegetarians at dinner but still took advantage of hotel dinner offer - get 4 meals and pay for 3. Price compared […] favourably with restaurants in surrounding area. Would definitely recommend for couples, business use. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good area to plenty of good restaurants,good spa."
Hotel food was poor,as a vegan who mainly eats fruit and a lot of raw foods its always going to be difficult, but there are loads of amazing local fruits in the market virtually none of which are served in the breakfast buffet, a lot of the fruit was processed tinned stuff, and when it was fresh some of it was starting to ferment and others were well […] underripe, i don't think the chefs have a clue about quality fruit or fruit preparation! Had food in the evening once most of the salads had a large proportion of cooked veggies and cooked food mixed in with them and the risotto especially prepared for me was tasteless and over salty, I'm suspecting this might not have been because he added Salt rather because he probably cooked the rice in oyster sauce which is common here!

"Mostly good but one issue..."
The Melia Mare is a fairly new hotel and has some lovely touches - great lighting, some lovely pieces of art and sculptures. It's very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We really only had one key criticism and it relates to the lack of hotel bars, especially in the lobby area. Most other hotels encourage guests to take a drink and […] meet friends in the lobby - the Melia only had one bar open and that was the pool bar downstairs. There was an inside bar called the Piano Bar doownstairs, which was lovely (no piano though!) but it wasn't open at all the whole time we were there. There was also a bar upstairs in the lobby area and a lovely outside seating area - again neither was open the whole time...given it was July this seemed very strange. We ended up going out to other hotels for a drink in the evening which is such a shame. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
An excellent modern 5 star hotel overlooking the sea, can recommend the Superior Sea View rooms, with large private terrace with sun beds. Nice outdoor pool, and superb, large indoor pool. Spacious and airy marble-clad public areas with attractive bars and lounges, although very quiet by mid-evening, and the musicians in the bar area were performing […] for just 2 or 3 tables. Excellent breakfast buffet, but the evening buffet (not tried) looked rather ordinary so we had one meal in the Italian restaurant -- good, but nothing special, and we were the only ones in there. Would rather recommend the local restaurants around the area, and especially a visit to the Old Town (a 15 minute taxi ride), awash with small local restaurants. Staff were particularly friendly and helpful (as were all the local people). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Eligant hotel"
The hotel was comfortable stylist and eligant. The decore was of a high standard. The public areas were very spacious and the indoor and outside pools were stunning The rooms were spacious and comfortable.The bathrooms were very stylish and clean. The breakfast was standard hotel fare and the food in the restraunt was not gormet eating but good. There […] was good security especially the garage area. I liked the way the room key also opperated the lights saving energy. The hotel was situated in a pleasant area with plenty of good views over the sea and with bars and restraunts in close proximity. It is situated a car ride into Funchal centre in a safe area. I enjoyed my stay there very much Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is not a 5 star hotel"
Staff very friendly but hotel lacks the usual 5 star touches. Buffet breakfast not up to 5 star standards, Telephone calls from hotel most expensive anywhere and guests not verbally advised. No daytime entertainment programme, cocktail bar empty and hotel lacks atmosphereGenuine Expedia guest review
"5* Room, 4* Service and Facilities. 15th visit to Funchal"
Booked a Superior Room which was very nice, but much of the Hotel was not really the standard of a 5* hotel in Madeira, basic pool area etc. The worst part was the booming Caberet every night - this was not avoidable as the singer (who could not sing) and the keyboard player (who missed every other note) seemed to be performing different songs half […] the time. Even with the patio doors closed, the booming of the tunes came booming into the room. Food at the poolside bar - don't eat there if you are in a hurry - about an 90 mins to get a sandwich & a dessert. The chambermaids and ladies on reception are the saving of this hotel - very friendly and helpful. Close to bars, supermarkets etc, and if all you want is to lie in the sun ok, but not really much of the real Madeira to be seen here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Voyage de Noces"
Nous avons séjourné durant notre voyage de noces au Melia Mare de Madère à Funchal. Notre semaine dans cet hotel fut très agréable. La chambre était spacieuse et confortable, offrant un balcon disposant d'une vue sur la mer. Début avril à Madère, le beau temps est au rendez-vous ! Aussi, l'établissement dispose de deux piscines gratuites, l'une intérieure […] et chauffée (ouverte jusqu'à 22h00), l'autre exterieure côté océan. De plus, vous y trouverez un Spa et une salle de sport. Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de les tester. Au sujet de la restauration, nous avons surtout profité du petit déjeuner compris dans notre séjour qui est un buffet à volonté offrant aussi bien du sucré que du salé. Toutefois, nous n'avons pas essayé le restaurant, type gastronomique, mais le buffet. A vrai dire, la facture fut salée (nous nous y attendions !). Le personnel est irréprochable, aimable et fort sympathique. Seul bémol, le personnel ne parle pas le français. L'île est surtout fréquentée par les touristes anglophones. Le Melia Mare se trouve dans le quartier hôtelier à l'ouest de Funchal. Le centre ville est proche, on peut s'y rendre facilement à pied ou emprunter les bus (l'arrêt se trouve au pied de l'hôtel). En résumé, nous recommandons sans hésitations cet établissement qui vous offrira un séjour agréable pour visiter cette île magnifique. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bom Hotel e bem situado!"
A estadia de três noites foi muito agradável, com um quarto muito simpático, vista mar lateral, tal como anunciado aquando da compra e um excelente pequeno-almoço.O pessoal é simpático, mas deveria ser melhor dirigido pelas chefias, nomeadamente na recepção (onde há pouco pessoal disponível, com tempo de espera acima do normal num hotel 5 estrelas) […] e no pequeno-almoço onde os empregados estão desatentos às mesas e por exemplo não levantam a loiça suja, quando o deveriam, fazer de imediato, Para o nível do Hotel, o treino dos empregados de meas deixa a desejar, apesar da sua simpatia.

"Flott hotell, super service, harde senger.."
Kan absolutt anbefale hotellet på det varmeste. Hotellet er rett og slett lekkert, rommene flotte med balkong. Servicen er helt outstanding! Veldig hyggelige folk. Det dukket opp et par problemer underveis som ble løst på en glitrende måte. 1; Sengene var veldig harde og jeg hadde vond rygg. De gjorde det de kunne med en ekstra dyne og teppe å ligge […] på, og det ble bedre. 2; Midt i oppholdet kom det plutselig opp et oppslag om at bassenget ville bli stengt for vedlikehold! Da vi hadde valgt nettopp dette hotellet pga oppvarmet utebasseng ble jeg nokså irritert, og det ga jeg beskjed om på en ordentlig måte. "Guest experience manager" Tina De Nobrega beklaget veldig, og fant en super løsning: Vi fikk lov til å bruke basseng (også oppvarmet) og uteområde på nabohotellet. Dette var like bra som "vårt" med en fantastisk hage. Frokosten var langt bedre enn på noe norsk hotell jeg har bodd på (og jeg har bodd på MANGE), omelett made to order og boblevin til frokost for dem som liker sånt. Gratis internett på rommet, ved bassenget og strengt tatt i hele hotellet var et kjempepluss! Spaet var greit, men ikke mer. Ser bra ut, men var ikke veldig imponert over massasjen - som var til norske priser. Treningsrom og basseng innendørs er åpent for spaets kunder og har også svømmetimer for unger.... Spaområdet er veldig fint, supert da jeg hadde det for meg sjøl Men, alt i alt, bor gjerne her igjen og anbefaler andre å velge Melia Madeira Mare. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
時間が取れなくて、数泊出来なかったのが、残念で仕方ありません。 スタッフがとても親切です。 部屋もバスルームも無駄なくおしゃれで、プールも清潔で美しい海が眺められます。 無料Ｗｉ-Ｆｉも嬉しかったです。サプライズは朝食です。 バイキングですが、種類の多さと、食材がそれぞれ吟味されていて美味しいです。 お好みのオムレツを目の前で焼いてくれます。 ベッドも寝心地良くて、ダウンの薄かけ蒲団がやわらかくて寛げます。 これがリゾートホテルの過ごし方だとおもいました。大満足です。 何とか時間を作って、また泊まりたいです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Das Zimmer lag in der 9. Etage und hatte wie versprochen einen wunderbaren Ausblich aufs Meer und eine nicht einsehbare riesige Terrasse. Service und Sauberkeit ließen keine Wünsche offen.

"Rapport qualité/prix trés satisfaisant"
Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour de 2 semaines le mois de juin. L'hôtel est, à notre avis, très beau, confortable et agréable. le personnel super serviables. Nous avons prix la chambre avec déjeuner et il n'y a rien à dire c’était bon, variée et copieux. Nous avons eu un petit problème de santé et le personnel de la réception nous ont bien conseillé […] pour aller à un centre médical très performant (Merci encore...). L hôtel n'est pas très loin du centre de Funchal (20min à pied) mais assez pour se retrouver au calme et a l'air frais. Il y a des bus tout prêt et plein des restaurants. il y a même une petite boutique SPAR pour les petits besoins si il le faut. En tout cas à recommander sans hésitation.
