VidaMar Resort Hotel Madeira
Ranked #18 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2012

A 5 star hotel that is 5 star. We arrived early and were able to get into our room straightaway. We upgraded to a superior sea view and that's exactly what we got, from the balcony you look down over the gardens and out over the ocean - absolutely stunning. The room was spacious and immaculately clean. The food was good, the staff friendly and helpful, even the cleaner was delightful. Hubby celebrated his birthday whilst we were there, we didn't tell anyone but when we got back to the room he was given champagne and a birthday cake, a really nice, thoughtful gesture. We had 10 days there and cannot fault any part of our stay. If we decide to go back to Madeira we would stay here again and definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel is well placed, with a nice sea view, our room was nicely equiped, hotel service excellent, people were really nice and welcoming, you wil have a great time at the swimming pool, the view from the one outside is really breathtaking.
The decoration of the hotel stays simple and classic, but pleasant, you will have the wide spaces, what gives you a feeling of tranquility even when there's lot of people in the hotel.
The only drawback was the atlantic spa, that you pay 30e for enter and there's nothing working inside, we wanted to book some spa programmes and there were no places left kind of sad when you come to a hotel that advertises having a good spa. The breakfasts are also quite not innovative, but ok.
TIP: the velvet bar on the second floor serves some excellent cocktails ;)

Room Tip: don't choose the rooms under the trhird floor, you will not get an ocean view, only a garden or...

Just returned from 10 days on Maderia and stayed at the CS Maderia Atlantic Resort. This is a superb hotel, spotlessly clean, great food and excellent staff. All who went out of their way to help and make our stay good. The guys at the pool were exceptional as well as the dining room and housekeeping staff. The rooms are fab with views across the Atrlantic Room 815/816, great first view every morning.We will return someday.

Room Tip: All rooms with Sea Views, the higher up the better. Floor 6 upwards I would think are best

We stayed at C S Maderia 2nd week in July , and could not fault anything to do with Hotel or Madeira itself , spotlessly clean ALL staff friendly and helpful, Loads of restaurants to choose from , our favourite was where you could cook your steak on a stone , the name escapes me but your holiday rep will know for sure , Great holiday looking to book again ages 44, 46, 20 and 18.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor sea view

We visited Madeira for the first time last year in June. What a lovely place, lovely people, absolutely loved Madeira (so much than since then i went back more than 5 times)
The Cs has an excellent location, unless you stay in Santa Cruz, Funchal is a while from the airport, but there are plenty of taxis and to be fair, everyone speaks english and it amazed me when you asked them if they do, they say just a little, but they speak really well.
The first time at the CS we went there for half term with the kids, we spent the days by the pool and out and about in the evenings for a meal. It was a bit boring for the kids sometimes, because Madeira isn't generally a place where kids go, most of the hotel visitors were adults, but some Portuguese children and they managed to understand each other and play and they had a lovely kids club so they can play there too. The first time we stayed in a room, with huge beds, and it was absolutely lush, nothing we could fault there, really clean, good service and if you didnt want to eat in the hotel, there is plenty around to choose. The second time at the Cs we had 2 interconnecting rooms, it was even better and had more room for everyone too. The breakfast was a dream, lovely sea views, lovely food, really good service. I can only say if you can, go and visit Madeira as it is an special place, a paradise with lovely people.

Have just returned from a break at this hotel. A beautiful place. As a clean freak I was not disappointed with the cleanliness!! Everything about the hotel was beautiful and I am a complete hotel snob. My only criticism is the standard of and price of the food on the evenings. To be honest it's expensive and there is much better locally at extremely reasonable prices. Overall I loved it and would definitely return which is something I rarely do.
