Moved to the Melia Madeira Mare Hotel CLOSED!!!!
We were moved to The Melia Madeira Mare Hotel, the beds were like slabs of concrete as were the pillows. I left with my children at 2am as we could not sleep. It was their Birthday treat, an we are all so disappointed. There were no English TV channels for the children so we went to the games room which was in the dark. I had to then go and find someone to switch on the lights, and this hotel was meant to be an upgrade, it wasnt. I have stayed in the Golden residence before and there was no comparison. The hotel was depressing with no atmosphere. There was nothing around the location, I booked the Golden residence because the Shopping Centre is literally across the road and has a Cinema. We were approx 2.5 km away.

Clean, family friendly hotel. Accessible by bus that stops right outside, uber is cheap though. Mall and resturants near by. Spacious room - we had serviced apartment room, that was cleaned every day and beds made, had mini kitchenette with fridge. Good breakfast buffet. Although the resturant menu is useless and expensive. Staff are brilliant and friendly. We went in Feb2020, weather was good but a light jacket is needed in evening. No washing machine facility, only paid drycleaning. Building can probably do with a cosmetic/redeco upgrade. Indoor pool area is not big, one medium Jacuzzi probably 4 adults will fit. We didnt use outdoor pool, but it is good size and would be fun in summer. A high 3+, not 4*. BUT good for families with children, who would rather prefer a friendly hotel to a posh one.
