Stopped there for a couple of weeks with the wife. This small hotel is more of a bed & breakfast. It IS simple and family run. Don't expect waiter service or luggage transfer. The room was adequate for what we paid for. Room cleaned and beds made every day except Sundays. Breakfast simple buffet and boiled eggs cook as required.... More

Stayed for a week during a conference event i was attending. The hotel is located about 25 min from the center. The hotel is a very simple place with basic accomodation facilities. The room was cleaned everyday. Even tough the furniture is outdated, I consider it to be a good option in terms of cost.Breakfast is simple.

This hotel is not located very close to the citycenter. The swinningpool is only half full of water, and can't be used. The swimmingpool area is quite run down and dirty. No internet in the rooms. Not all the staff in the reception speaks english. The breakfast is VERY simple, and 100% the same every day. The charge 1 euro... More

At the moment Monte Verde and Melba are together here as one hotel but that has to be changed. Melba has not much to do anymore with Monte Verde although it is the same little complex. Both were owned by 2 brothers, but Monte Verde has for biggest part been taken over by a new owner and he is slowly... More

The owners - the brothers are very arogant and unbelievably lazy. The one - at the reception - is watching The Simpsons on TV all the time and does not bother about anything.

Monte Verde is relatively good value for central Funchal but it is basic - more of a guest house feel than a hotel. The rooms are in a tradional style - dark wood furniture, old fashioned decor etc - and the mattresses are very hard! My room had a sea view (quite distant, looking over roof tops) and was reasonably... More

My partner and I have just returned from a weeK staying at the Monte Verde. We had initially booked to stay at the Vila Comacho, but they were overbooked so they walked us to the Monte Verde and I am glad they did. The owners are from Venezuela and are incredibly helpful. The breakfast is a buffet affair with rolls... More
