We have just returned from a weeks stay at The Vine Hotel Funchal, what a fantastic stay. We were celebrating our honeymoon and my birthday also fell during our stay. We were greeted by very friendly staff who showed us to the roof top pool and 360bar which by the way are fabulous. We had a complimentary drink before being shown to our room. I read a lot about the lights and difficulty people had using them, if you just take a minute to look at the layout there are no problems. We were given a bottle of champagne as a honeymoon gift which was such a lovely touch. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at The Vine they are wonderful. The view from the roof top bar is amazing and just allows you to see how central you are in Funchal, perfect location. We thought Madeira had a reputation for the older generation, and it does still attract an older age range, but I'm pleased to say that with Hotels like The Vine the trend is definitely moving towards those in their late 20s early 30s, cocktails and infinity pools!
Funchal has a lot to offer from whale, dolphin watching, to amazing botanical gardens and local traditions. By far the best restaurant that we had the pleasure to eat at was Restaurante Do Forte at Rua Portao São Tiago, for 29 euros each we had a 6 course meal, amazing staff and a beautiful view, but you have to book early as it seems everyone loves this place.
Looking for a space in which you can recharge your batteries then your search is at an end as the Albatroz you will find luxury and tranquility. With a peaceful ambiance, well appointed rooms, superb service and excellent food it was a pleasure to stay here.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were excellent - friendly, great service and would do anything to help and more. The views were lovely and in a nice quiet location. Be aware you would need to use taxis, buses or hire a car to get about. We used a taxi with a great guy called Duncan recommended by the hotel, who gave us a tour of the island which was a great day out and for other little run arounds. Also took the local bus into Funchal which was convenient too. A great holiday and we hope that the people who own this hotel value the wonderful staff they have - they really were so hard working and always with a smile. Thank you to them all for making our holiday so enjoyable.
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.
"Magnificent hotel, away from the bustle of Funchal"
Jardin do Largo offered excellent facilities, magnificent grounds (Better than the Botanical Gardens!). Excellent staff, could not do enough for you. Excellent food, breakfast outside on the terrace was a treat. Wonderful pool area in the grounds.
Positioned away from the 'Hotel' area of Funchal, quiet and peaceful, offering a free there and back shuttle service into central Funchal, though only a 15 min walk into town.
Would recommend to anyone!

From check in to check out the whole experience was absolutely fantastic. The staff are all so attentive, nothing was to much trouble. The hotel itself is so relaxing, so many quiet corners just to chill and take in all the beauty....
Breakfast was a pleasure from the bucks fizz to the 5 minute boiled eggs, the choice was vast...
Take my word if you want a chilled holiday with a few quirky twist this hotel is a must...
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.

From the moment we were collected from the airport by the hotel's owner Mr Bras, we were informed that our enjoyment was his priority. He lived up to this promise in every way. A spectacular hotel on top of a mountain surrounded by splendid scenery and walks. Two restaurants in the hotel which both served fantastic well priced meals. The chef (Paulo) in the grill even cooked special vegetarian meals for my partner which allowed me to eat at the grill more often. His skewered Portuguese sausagesa are to die for! The barman (Eduardo) invented the most wonderful cocktails. We have never stayed in a more welcoming hotel and there is not enough space here to review this hotel adequately. An excellent hotel run by an extemely professional team and managed by people who actually care about the 'guest'. Thank you

Friendly and welcoming staff on reception. Comfortable room with lovely outlook over the private garden down to the coast about 3 miles away. Good centre for touring but without a car you might feel a bit out on a limb. Ideal for a walking holiday. The large covered swimming pool is excellent. A delicious breakfast, included in the room rate, can be taken on the terrace to enjoy the sun!
