Melia Madeira Mare

TripAdvisor Review
Portugal, Europe
Funchal

This resort hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the tourist area of Lido, and offers magnificent ocean views. It enjoys direct access to the Oceanside promenade and the small pebble beach, Gorgulho. The town centre, the old town and Madeira Wine Lodges are all easily accessible. Madeira Airport is about 25 kms away. This is a modern and elegant hotel with a contemporary design concept. It opened in 2008, and improves the quality of accommodation options for both business and leisure travellers coming to Madeira Island. It has 220 rooms in total spread across 10 floors, as well as 2 fine restaurants, 3 bars and esplanades, and a ballroom with seating for up to 350 persons, where private events and celebrations may be arranged. The 6 conference rooms, offering flexible meeting spaces and equipped with web access, are the perfect places to host meetings and conferences.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Enjoyed every minute of our 10 night stay

Review by RobMorton666 Bolton, United Kingdom

Just returned from a very enjoyable,relaxing stay at the Melia Mare.The Hotel was spotless & all staff & guests adhered to the current regulations.Nothing too much trouble for any of the staff,which in my book means that is the sign of a well managed hotel.We booked a lovely sea view room & with the hotel being on the Promenade it is a true sea view & fantastic views all over the lido area as well. Breakfast caters for everyone's taste.No dirty plates or dishes left on tables.Moved straight away by a superb team led by Dinarte. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to enjoy & relax in a 5* hotel Mr & Mrs Morton

Great hotel - friendly staff

Review by Robert P Leeds, United Kingdom

We love this hotel - it is within walking distance of Funchal and has a great location overlooking the sea, with good restaurants nearby (The Atlantic is our favourite). The staff is friendly and welcoming, rooms are spacious and it never feels too 'crowded'.

Not that we expected

Review by 201linag Lithuania

Sorry, but this is not 5 star hotel. Receptionists are not polite, for food for breakfast they have very poor choise. We get sick (3 people of 4) after hotel food...

We had included dinner, but we eat it only once from 7 days, just checked but after we also feld badly. The coffee mashine is working so slowly, they have two choices of coffee from mashine and the other one but it is not good. Rooms are not bad, everything looks clean, but we get allergie from bedding. We do not recommend this hotel.

Quite happy stay

Review by LWB888 London, United Kingdom

I was quite happy with my stay at Melia. Customer service was good. My room was big...

Nice comforter. Decent terrace facing the ocean. I only used the indoor pool which was nice. The room was quiet. I did not hear my neighbor. Good quality of sleep. The breakfast buffet was okay. They should upgrade the coffee machines, which were like antiques, taking forever to make coffee and taste not good. Every morning I had to rush to coffee machine first as it was clearly the bottleneck of breakfast. The hotel has some distance to town center. Taxi cost €10 every time going to town. I would consider staying here again despite old coffee machine and taxi need.

Excellent hotel with stunning views

Review by Brian H Stevenage, United Kingdom

My wife and I with our 10 year old son stayed in the Melia Madeira Mare at the end of December 2021 for 6 nights We had stayed here before 4 years ago. We stayed in a Royal Suite (half board basis) which was spacious, quiet, clean and had stunning views of the ocean. Breakfast and evening meals were good - plenty of choice, good service and ample room between tables. It was our son's birthday during our stay and Tomas (Restaurant Manager) organised a birthday cake for him which was lovely - a big thank you to Tomas. We used the indoor swimming pool which was fantastic. We did not use the outdoor pool or the outside terraces. We used the underground parking which worked very well. Our only comment was that as we had booked the most expensive room it would come with a large balcony. In fact the balcony was not wide enough for a sunbed (although it is double width)...

We understood that to get a large balcony we should have booked a Master Suite (but these do not have separated rooms). So please be advised: a Master Suite has non-separated rooms with a large balcony and a Royal Suite has separated rooms with a narrower balcony. Final conclusion: An excellent hotel, with helpful staff in a good location with stunning views. Fully recommended.
