The Melia Madeira Mare is the perfect choice for those looking for a stylish, luxurious hotel in Funchal’s iconic Lido area. It’s a modern property with contemporary interiors and, thanks to its waterfront location, sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a small-but-perfectly-formed pebble beach just outside the hotel, and Madeira’s famous Lido pools are less than a five-minute walk away. The centre of Funchal is just a 10 minutes away by car, too.
At the hotel itself, days revolve around the pool. The main pool has panoramic sea views and comes with in-water loungers and a bar for light bites and drinks. Little ones get a splash pool of their own and then you’ll find an additional pool – which is heated – in the spa. Aside from the indoor pool, the plush spa centre is home to a sauna, a hot tub, a Turkish bath, a juice bar and a gym. You can book various treatments here, including massages and beauty treatments.
Mealtimes are a treat here. You’ve got the Mare Nostrum buffet restaurant with its international cuisine and live cooking stations and then Il Massimo – an à la carte place serving traditional dishes from Madeira. After dinner, you can head to the La Luna bar to sip cocktails on the outdoor terrace.
