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.

Excellent Customer Service

Review by BigFatBudgie Port Talbot

My Spouse & I stayed here for ten days in February. Our initial room overlooked the pool which was noisy, so we asked to change and were given a free upgrade which was a nice, unexpected surprise. This hotel is situated in the hotel zone, a short bus ride to Funchal town...

It is a clean, modern hotel with comfy beds and beautiful sea views. We went half board. The food was so-so - average. It was self service. Busy at breakfast but quieter in the evenings. Excellent covid rules & hygiene regulations in place when we visited. The best thing was the customer service. We found everyone to be so pleasant, helpful & friendly. A big ‘thank you’ to all the reception & and restaurant staff. I recommend The Madeira Mare and would stay here again.

Beautiful and convenient location

Review by Loredanarijsenbilt69 Singapore, Singapore

Rooms excellent the side view sea. Very comfortable beds. Provided shampoos soap etc… from Ritual which are goods products...

Close by to a lot of restaurants and walking distance to a place where you can swim in the blue sea. Hotel breakfast excellent. The pool is too small and not enough of chairs to lying when it is full. The restaurant by the pool need more covered from the sun as it is not big if you want to have your lunch. Staff are very friendly. Fitness you needed to reserve you slot but never busy. Hotel can books also trips.

Third visit to Melia Mere…never again!

Review by loulouham northumberland

This is our third visit to this hotel & it will definitely be our last…sadly standards have slipped dramatically. Firstly our room: damp smelling bathroom with a leaking shower, dirty grout, stains all over the carpet including what looked like a blood stain next to the desk. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast; what had previously been a lovely experience was horrendous...

Orange juice (which was freshly squeezed on previous stays) was weak watery squash. Inedible rock hard bacon, plus a bizarre variety of items which were clearly left over from the previous night’s dinner service…profiteroles, roast potatoes, broccoli and poached pears for breakfast?! Stale croissants and a miserable selection of battered looking ‘fresh’ fruit. Other guests we spoke to who had booked half board told us the dinner selection was extremely poor and there had been multiple complaints made about it. The public areas of the hotel are sweltering hot, with no air conditioning. When we asked about this we were told it was switched off ‘to save the environment’. I suspect this is actually to save the hotel money. On the plus side, the pool area is clean and well maintained, and some of the staff are helpful and friendly. But there is a real air of despondency and neglect throughout. There are much nicer places to stay for only slightly more money, please don’t waste your holiday staying here.

Excellent introduction to Madeira

Staff service: from the brilliant Carla at check-in, who assisted us exploring Funchal. To every member of the staff, nothing was too much for them. Really friendly and helpful...

A real credit to the hotel and Madeira. Everything was clean or constantly being cleaned. Room 629 has an incredible view of cove. Very quiet and comfortable. Plenty of plug sockets available and showers were great, powerful. The Old Town €8-10 taxi trip away, taxi service fast and friendly. Old town restaurants offer a great variety of choice but try the local dishes if you can. We had a fantastic holiday (middle aged couple) It’s not Ibiza nightlife (thankfully) just a lovely place to visit. Cannot recommend enough. Great stay at a great hotel with great staff. Thank you.
