Amy Adejokun Section editor

This unpretentious holiday residence has a beautiful view of the sea and the hinterland. As far as the facilities are concerned though, there is just a bare minimum... The Terrace Mar may therefore appeal to people searching for somewhere to spend a night with a mini kitchen.

    Location 8.56 /10

    The Terrace Mar is located just over a mile from Funchal city centre, a 5 minute walk away from the Estrada Monumental - the main street where most of the hotels in Madeira are situated, and 15 mi from the airport. Allow half an hour for transfers by car.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    Every room has a small balcony. The ones on the fourth floor even have two: one in the front and one at the back. They look out over the side street, which tends to be a little noisy, and the sea beyond. The studios are equipped with an open kitchen, some kitchenware, and a microwave oven. The furniture is very simple and unoriginal, which is reflective of every other aspect in the rooms: from the light tile flooring to the white and blue of the walls. The towels in the rooms are changed every day and the sheets every 3 days. Amenities in the bathrooms consist of an integrated hair dryer and good lighting, but the PVC ceiling and the showerheads are both in mediocre condition.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1996, this hotel residence holds a total of 43 guest rooms, 31 studios, and 12 junior suites. Here, everything is limited: the entrance hall furnished with green armchairs will give you an idea of what to expect right from the beginning! The pool, barely 3m long, is found on the fourth floor located near a small bathtub-like jacuzzi. Two large parabola-shaped satellite dishes have been set up among the deckchairs on the rooftop terrace. Towels for the pool are provided on request from reception for a deposit of £4. If you also wish to hire a bathrobe and sandals to access the pool, you will need to pay £8.5. Located in the basement is a fairly dark room used as a games room. It is equipped with a pool table, a computer with Internet connection, a card table, and a television. Parking spaces are available at the hotel for guests for a fee.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    Although the restaurant doesn't belong to the hotel, it is possible to opt for full-board accommodation. Here you will find international cuisine in addition to some Portuguese specialities and ice cream. The restaurant offers a colourful atmosphere. In the entrance opening out into the street (near the menu), 2 parrots welcome guests in a boisterous manner! Inside, a great number of paintings decorate the walls and a variety of objects are scattered about among the 2 rooms (one of the rooms is actually a veranda looking out onto the street).

    To know

    The lift only goes up to the fourth floor: it doesn't run guests up to the terrace.

      • Value for money 6.69
      • Location 7.66

      The Residencial Gordon is located right at the centre of the city of Funchal. It is a small, family-run hotel which, strictly speaking, looks more like a guesthouse than a hotel. No facilities to speak of, just a few bedrooms and a small bar where breakfast is served. Recommended for those who wish to explore the capital of Madeira on foot and are looking for a small pied-à-terre.

      Located high up, in an old district of Funchal, the Monte Carlo is a little hotel full of history. The black and white photographs hanging on the walls around the hotel testify to the history of the hotel itself but also of the by-gone customs of Madeiran life. Why not ask Mr Ricardo Macedo to take you on a little tour of the building?

      Located at the heart of Funchal, the Residencial Chafariz is a small city hotel. This is, in fact, its only asset as it has no particular facilities of its own. It is therefore a good base from which to explore the city on foot. It is near to the shops and restaurants as well as the tropical flower market and the historical centre.

      It isn't without reason that The Vine hotel belongs to the Design Hotels group. It is the first hotel we have visited to have adopted such a concept. In addition to the carefully designed communal areas, the decor on the 4 floors of guest rooms is inspired by the four seasons. Thus, we move from winter to summer via autumn and spring. Plus, there is a French chef in the gastronomic restaurant! Open since December 2008, The Vine hotel proposes a particularly original and comfortable setting for a stay at the heart of the city of Funchal. We would definitely recommend this place to couples!

      An internationally-renowned establishment, one of the "Leading Hotels of the World" and a member of the Orient-Express group, Reid's will attract a demanding clientele who expect a high level of service in a setting that exudes elegance, chic and tradition. 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.

      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!
