The Melia Madeira Mare is certainly one of the best establishments in Madeira, but you would never have guessed it from its imposing exterior... Nevertheless, it boasts numerous details that make for a perfect place to spend your holiday. The hotel's concept was inspired by the five senses: smell, with the perfumed atmosphere, touch, with the soft and delicate fabrics, hearing, with the constant musical entertainment, sight, with the colour scheme used throughout the establishment, and taste, with the delicately prepared meals. The Melia Madeira Mare is a place you come to rest and enjoy high quality facilities, not forgetting the attentive service!

    Location 7.75 /10

    The hotel is located on the seafront, just over a mile west of Funchal and 16 mi from the airport. It will take around 20 minutes to walk into downtown Funchal and around 35 minutes to drive to the airport.

    Accommodation 8.90 /10

    The hotel's 10 floors gather a total of 220 guest rooms, available in three categories, broken down into subcategories: standard rooms, superior double rooms and suites. The size of the standard rooms is quite surprising: you definitely won't be lacking space! the beige and purple tones used to decorate them are both warm and elegant. All enjoy a full or partial view of the sea, which can be admired from the big balcony. The bedding is undeniably of good quality, and the grey furniture blends in perfectly with the decor. The bathroom looks out onto the bedroom through a bay window and the toilets are separated from the rest of the bathroom by an opaque glass door. All of the necessary amenities are present: a mini-bar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a TV, air-conditioning, 24/7 room service... The smokers' rooms are located on the 10th floor.

    Overview 8.00 /10

    The architecture of the Melia Madeira Mare slopes down towards the sea. It opened in 2009 and boasts a resolutely modern style, with every corner of the hotel decorated with a work of art. Inside, the lobby is an elegant space with a muffled atmosphere, where revolving doors open onto a well-lit reception area. On the ground floor there is an outdoor swimming pool and a children's pool. The circular pool is surrounded by wooden deckchairs and parasols, and affords a view of the Atlantic ocean.
    The hotel has a beautiful lounge bar, El Piano, where live concerts are held in the evening. In the basement you'll find the Maloclinic and Spa, but this doesn't actually belong to the hotel. Guests nevertheless enjoy free access to the outdoor pool, the gym and the jacuzzi bath. The spa has 7 massage rooms, one of which is reserved for couples. Two of rooms are particularly well-equipped. The first is decorated in a way designed to make you feel as if you were in the middle of a forest, and the second is made to look like a white sandy beach...

    Food and drink 8.50 /10

    Guests have 2 restaurants to choose from. The Mare Nostrum serves breakfast and dinner as a buffet. There are five different buffet stations here, offering a selection of international dishes. The modern decor and purple tones go nicely together, and there is also a terrace where you can enjoy your meal facing the swimming pool and the sea.
    At lunchtime, the poolside bar, O Ilheu, offers a menu of light snacks. For dinner, the Il Massimo, an à la carte restaurant, opens its doors. Amandio Goncalves, formerly the chef at the Reid's (a famous hotel in Madeira), makes clever use of his culinary talents... He's not afraid to mix flavours. Try his marinated salmon with grilled potatoes served on a bed of pancakes...

    To know

    The seaside promenade runs directly past the hotel, granting guests easy access. In addition to the superb sea view it offers, the promenade is also lined with many good restaurants, shops and bars.

      Located in the Funchal hotel area, the Girassol is suitable for families; it is near to the sea and also several shops. However, this location evidently means that there will be noise.

      A hotel with an impressive view of the ocean, the Orca Praia is a place to be favoured for its nice environment and very attractive prices. One of the rare hotels in Madeira with a beach. Peppered with black sand, it is less attractive than the fine sand beaches. With an architecture shaped like a staircase, the hotel seems to go down straight towards the sea.

      Located in the Funchal hotel zone, the Alto Lido consists of one central building and a huge, imposing and unattractive tower running alongside the road. The complex does nevertheless have a good number of facilities. Built in the '80's, the second part was constructed as an addition to the first in order to increase the number of rooms. The majority of the guests are European.

      The Pestana Promenade is the latest acquisition of the hotel group that bears the same name, and is also one of its finest gems. This is a small and incredibly charming establishment, but you wouldn't expect it from the outside. At first sight, its architectural qualities seem a bit dubious. However, it does offer some true advantages, such as the sea view from all the accommodation units, regardless of their category. This is a very friendly establishment, where you'll immediately feel comfortable and will have no difficulty in getting into holiday mode...

Among all the whispering and murmuring, there is a certain rush to take your time to take your time... Between the sound of the waves, the clattering of porcelain and the sound of heels on the tiled floor, anything can happen in these bygone surroundings where, nevertheless, nothing is happening. Time, here, passes by somewhat hurriedly... The most recent work took place in 2006 and involved the swimming pool and the spa. The bedrooms, for their part, are also gradually being renovated.
