My husband and I have just spent a week at this hotel, bed, breakfast and evening meal. The hotel is superb, food was delicious, enormous choice at the buffet breakfast from beautifully prepared fresh fruit to full english and everything inbetween! The evening meals, also buffet style again were delicious and with lots of choice. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and our room was spacious with writing desk and seating area. We would definitely go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: As for a room overlooking the pool if you want a full sea view, our room was on the side of the hotel and we could still see the sea but not fully.

we stayed here for our honeymoon and it was such a lovely experience.
the staff are lovely, the hotel is nice and clean and spacious. the spa and facilities are brilliant too.
as it was our honeymoon, they upgraded our room to a suite and we had a turn-down service and champagne and fresh fruit everyday, they go the extra mile.

the pool area is really nice and i think that this hotel is one of the nicest looking ones in Funchal.

food was top notch as well. i would definitely recommend this hotel to others! we will definitely go back

Room Tip: suites were lovely.

Our second stay at Melia Mare and could not fault the hotel in any way. Staff most helpful, very clean room & facilities and the best breakfast buffet we have enjoyed on the island. Brilliant sea views from the pool area & our side sea view room also enjoyed good sea views. Our room was very quiet when doors closed & we had no problems with any noise from the road. Free internet offered near reception & very good indoor swimming pool.
We will return

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for full seaview but side seaview rooms are still very good.

One week stay at the beginning of February. A great deal with Hotelsbooked.com (i have no association with that company and have not used them before.) The Melia Madeira Mare is an excellent place to stay. The hotel is very modern, restful, with many sophisticated sculptures in public areas. I would particularly comment on the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in all areas: the reception desk, restaurant and rooms.

The buffet restaurant is particularly impressive for breakfasts and dinner. Before arriving, I wondered whether 'in house' meals would become tedious for a whole week. But, due to the wide range of of the buffet, this was never an issue. The food at the Melia is exceptional.

I would have no hesitation about staying here again. Did I mention that the 'Yellow Bus' stops a few metres away? This is a great value way to travel between the hotels to the west of Funchal into the city, and back.

Room Tip: We had a room on the west side (sun in the evenings). East facing rooms (over the hotel pool, probably darker).

We stayed on a high floor and had a great balcony with lots of room to relax. It felt very private and the view over the bay was stunning.

Food was the usual buffet - ok if you like that sort of thing but we tended to try and find something in town.
