“Great Hotel & Location”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

What a top location - high on the cliff edge overlooking the sea but with local shops less than 5 mins away and the city centre half hour walk. Lovely hotel with great facilitites, child friendly and 3 wonderful main restaurants. Friendly staff and lovely people generally on the island. Some amazing attractions within 10 mins in a taxi.

We returned to Madeira to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary following a day visit from a cruise the previous year. We could not have chosen a better location and the hotel was spotlessly clean and all staff extremely friendly and helpful. Our room, on the eighth floor, overlooked the ocean and was really spacious with a lovely bathroom and plenty of storage space. The food was varied and plentiful with cakes and desserts to die for!!! My husband particularly took a liking to the omelettes each morning, cooked by a lovely lady with a beautiful smile and a wonderful outlook on life who is obviously devoted and very proud of her six year old son!!
WELL DONE VIDAMAR for making our 30th anniversary stay a memorable one!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors for the best views

Two words which some up this wonderful hotel!
We were so impressed during our stay in 2013 (see Madeira Dream review) that we returned for our second honeymoon in 2014!
This time we drove a rental car from the airport to the hotel and were very impressed with the care we received immediately upon our arrival. The car was duly parked by a member of staff, while we were escorted to the reception with our luggage for checking in.
Our room had a balcony with a fantastic view of the ocean, was well equipped with minibar, free Wi-Fi, a large bath/ shower and his and her sinks. The bed was huge and very comfortable with new sheets every day along with immaculate cleaning and topping up with fresh fruit.
The best thing about this hotel is the customer service. We spoke with Simone Aguiar in guest relations about places to visit in our rental car and she recommended a wonderful local seafood restaurant along with a route for us to take in all the sites and really experience the island.
A couple of days into our holiday we returned to our room and were delighted to find a chilled bottle of sparkling wine complete with cake, fruits and a 'Happy Anniversary' card on the table. Completely unexpected!
All the staff give 100% dedication to ensuring guests have the most comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable experience.
The restaurants have excellent food, variety and service. You can have tapas, Italian, sushi and worldwide foods in the main restaurant where a lavish breakfast banquet was laid on every morning, complete with sparkling wine and eggs made to order by an egg lady. There is also a relaxing 'velvet piano cocktail bar' with musical entertainment and and of course lots of different cocktails expertly made to order.
The hotel's pools and spa are so relaxing and offer many pampering treatments.
Finally the location is perfect for either walking into downtown Funchal or exploring the island on frequent buses. A perfect holiday!

Room Tip: They're all clean, spacious, well equipped and have fantastic views

We stayed on the 9th floor for a week. The room was excellent and always absolutely clean. The hotel is huge and very modern. The staff cannot do enough for you. The gym is very good, the dine around option were very enjoyable. My other half liked the buffet but for me more salad selection would be my preference. It was hot in out time and the pool area is large and plenty of beds and shades. The pool area could be more visually appealing but then you do have an infinity pool with the sea right there. Top tip is to have the fridge with the pre stocked items for 6 euros for the week and restock yourself from the supermarkets which have great wine and beer and so much cheaper than the uk. The wine was great quality and you can have the fridge restocked but the choice is yours. You can book tours when there or if the weather is not so good. We did the west coast tour which was very good and you can walk into Funchal and the old town and get the cable car to the top. You are right next to cliff bay and Reid's hotel and a short 15 tp 20 mins walk into the centre. There also very regular tour buses or normal buses outside the hotel. Best tip is ask for a room at the top or above level 5 but try for 7 to 10. All in all Funchal has very good hotels and you are spoilt for choice but this offers good half board value.

Room Tip: High up and above level 5. 7 to 10 recommended.

I have just come back from Vidimir Resorts funchal Madiera and great hotel! Really clean and everything available. Beautiful water at sea and the same water in the swimming pools. Lots of classes available acquaintance fit cycling. Went half board and nice breakfast in the morning, nice lady called Suzy makes lovely fresh omelettes fried eggs scrambled and lots of variety.
We got 8th floor so great views from our superior Ocean view room really happy with the room. Mama Mia restaurant is very good and Sabor da Mar restaurant very fresh and upmarket meat and fish. The Ocean Restaurant is ok but not much choice for vegetarian which the hotel have taken in to consideration from my feedback. Staff are very helpful and friendly and piano bar is great in the evenings for live music and cocktails. Overall great place and recommend it as it is a 5 star and made to feel special!!

Room Tip: 8th floor upwards

This hotel really is excellent value for money and one of the best I have stayed in. Unlike the Canary Island hotels this truly is a 5 star resort. There are 4 restaurants as well as the main buffet and they give you 15 euros to spend a head on those - all are of excellent quality and some of the best on the island. The breakfast is fantastic and never seems too busy unlike other resorts. There is plenty of sun loungers and they are always available at any time of day with an unlimited supply of fresh towels. The pictures do not do this hotel justice and its one of the largest hotels for the amount of guest I have ever stayed at. Everything is spotlessly clean and it has excellent olive gardens and an indoor swimming pool with steam room, jacuzzi and sauna.

I haven't got kids but they have kids clubs inside the hotel, squash courts and gym if that's your thing. Weather in Madeira is wonderful and the hotel is a very short walk to the bus stop which will then take you into town. Taxis are cheap if you want to go out at night but the hotel has a lovely bar with entertainment if you wish. There are plenty of other restaurants all within walking distance if you prefer.

The pools are large and are the infinity type so they meet the horizon which is a nice touch. The heated indoor pool also has an outdoor area which catches the sun so is also nice. The hotel has access to the sea so you can also swim there if you prefer and they organise diving if you want to do it. The hotel has a large spa but we didn't use it.

Room Tip: The best rooms are on the upper floors and have a full sea view, its worth paying the extra for thes...
