Great hotel. Lack of evening entertainment let's it down. No private beach. Have to pay 10 Euros for a sunbed..
Food excellent, but 29 Euros per person for lunch is just silly, even though it's a buffet. Overall food and drink at the hotel were overpriced.

Not a bad word to say. All round excellent stay! Plenty of sunbeds, excellent food, friendly staff. Suitable for families and couples. Slight snag is the distance from the shops but I knew that when I booked. Shuttle bus works well though.

Just spent a week at this hotel and would recommend it.
We stayed in a deluxe room which I thought was very comfortable with all the facilities of a five star hotel.
Staff were excellent. Housekeeping was amazing. Our room was spotless and the bed linen crisp and cool.
Steak restaurant is certainly worth a visit.
One minor complaint, concerning breakfast. Being a self service buffet which is normal for a hotel of this type, the tea and coffee was served by the staff who were sometimes deployed doing other chores. This sometimes resulted in difficulty getting served or obtaining a top up particularly when breakfast was busy as it it normally was. The food made up for it though as it was of a wide variety, plentiful, and delicious.
All in all, an excellent hotel.

"Cliff edge hotel with uninterrupted views of sea"
Quiet, clean, spacious hotel. Great choice of cocktails at reasonable prices, in fact we thought all drinks and lunchtime sandwiches good value for money. Staff always polite and helpful, even when busy. Aquatronic excellent, especially if used properly. Dine around is good, however for us the buffet was poor. Breakfasts excellent and supply everything you could need. Also, if taking local food/drinks home as souvenirs, the Vidamar is hard to beat price wise against shops in Funchal. There are always sun beds available either in the garden or poolside, and despite one report I read, you don't leave a deposit for pool towels but give over a pass which is returned when towels returned.

"Well run and comfortable hotel in good location."
We stayed here for 2 weeks in June 2016 and was one of our best hotel holidays. Our room was comfortable, overlooking the pool and sea views, clean, shady balcony and very effective curtains, such that we overslept on many days! Most of the other guests appeared to be mainly a mix of older British, French and Germans which produced a civilised atmosphere and was quiet at night. Of course this might be different at other times of year. We especially enjoyed the food and range of high quality snacks and beverages available all hours (free for full board guests). A generous packed lunch was available on request for full board guests for day trips away from the hotel. All the staff spoke good English (and most had no trouble with French and German as well) and we always felt that any questions or requests were dealt with in an efficient and friendly manner. The location was perfect - a short bus ride from the centre of Funchal (we also found it walkable), although we tended to use our hire car a lot including for longer excursions around the island (highly recommended). The hotel also had direct access to a promenade walk - from which its possible to walk all the way to Camara de Lobas. Unfortunately the walk to Funchal meant some road walking although there was a range of shops and interesting buildings a long the way. We had a great stay and found Madeira an enchanting island paradise with super scenery and great for walking in the hills and mountains (unique levada walks).
