Great hotel for couples. Room was exactly what we wanted and the spa facilities were great, including free use of hot tub, sauna and indoor and outdoor pools! Hotel staff were happy to help when asked and the hotel was an easy distance from Funchal centre, either by bus for €1.90 or a pleasant 20 minute walk. Balcony view of the sea was incredible as was the view of Funchal from the rooftop. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
I HAVE NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR THIS HOTEL. IT IS ,BY DESIGN A PERFECTLY SITUATED RESTING POINT TO ENJOY THE SENSATION OF BEING IN FUNCHAL,WHILE BEING CARRIED BACK IN TIME TO QUIETER DAYS AND TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO VIEW THE TOWN AND IT'S SETTING AGAINST THE ATLANTIC.
IT'S A SMALL HOTEL WHICH ENABLES THE STAFF TREAT ALL THEIR GUESTS WITH EQUANIMITY AND AN OLD-FASHIONED PERSONAL STYLE VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND THESE DAYS.
WE HOLIDAYED HERE 15 YEARS AGO, AND CAME BACK TO SEE IF WE STILL FELT THE SAME ABOUT IT. IT'S STILL THE MOST ROMANTIC CORNER OF A LOVELY ISLAND.
From the time we were met at the airport by the hotel transport until we left on the last day we were made to feel a valued guest. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The cleanliness of all the areas in the hotel inside and out were outstanding. The food choice every day was excellent and the surroundings of the restuarant with its sunny terrace round the pool gave a relaxing feel. The activities organisor was most helpful although the evening entertainment was not great.

2 adults and 2 children had a wonderful week.
We were greeted at check in with a welcoming smile and a choice of cold fresh juice or sparkling wine!
The apartment we initially booked was no longer available so we upgraded to the master suite at no extra cost!
It was beautiful, our master bedroom had a stunning view of the marina and the Atlantic Ocean!
Exceptionally furnished, clean and incredibly spacious.
All the pools were clean with comfortable sun loungers and staff on hand with pool towels.
Staff were attentive and friendly but not too intrusive!
This is the second time I stay at this hotel, staff were so friendly and very helpful.I have a small child, so I did not wanted to stay to high up so they accomodated to an even better and child friendly room, very confortable and clean on second floor where we all felt so welcoming. I definately recomend this hotel, very near to town, you can walk through promenade only takes 15 minutes, where you can enjoy and mesmerize the beautiful nature of Madeira: flowers, exotic trees, the views of the mountains and the sea
I stayed 48 hours after a week of strenuous walking (55 year old woman travelling solo) and had the best time. Sparkling 20m pool and easy access to a lovely pebbly beach (take jelly shoes). With friendly staff, excellent food, a nice room with a balcony overlooking the sea, and a superb hot stone massage what's not to like. Only 20 mins and €25 by taxi from the airport and frequent buses into Funchal. Thoroughly recommended.

The Vidamar is located about 25 minutes walk west of Funchal main centre on the edge of the main hotel district. This means that the location is convenient yet quiet. The hotel has recently added an excellent sports facility with well equipped gym and many classes inc pump, spinning etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the new half board package gives you the option of a 15 euros per person option at one of the 3 on restaurants if you choose not to go for the all inclusive evening buffet option. Great value and a very relaxing holiday.
