“Excellent Customer Service.”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We had a lovely holiday at Vila Marta Madeira Portugal. Joel and Bruno's warm hospitality, made our stay even more memorable. They looked after us very well. For everything we need it. The bedroom was very clean and well furnished and spacious.
The fine touch of their customer service, every single morning we were welcomed by fresh bread outside our door. In a lovely canvas bag and that was complementary. Also when we left, we were giving a special gift of local Madeira wine and cake. Definitely stay again at Vila Marta.

Room Tip: All rooms have beautiful view. The street is quiet.

When choosing where to stay in Madeira we saw the excellent reviews for Villa Marta - some of the best we have come across. Am delighted to report they are all still relevant and true! Joel, Marta, and Bruno certainly have a winning formula. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can fully recommend Villa Marta. The regular local buses mean this destination is still accessible for those without a car and it's certainly worth staying here if you do not want to be in the main touristy hotel zone.

This was the most pleasant, relaxed and hospitable accommodation we have experienced on any holiday in all our years of travel. The previous positive reviews have said it all before and we were impressed by how well Joel and Bruno, not only met but exceeded our expectations. Throughout our fortnight stay in July 2013, they were consistently warm and welcoming, constantly on hand to help with information and practical assistance on any matter. On arrival, we were shown our accommodation and provided with milk, tea, coffee and fruit to start us off. The room was comfortable, spotless and very well serviced every day. We would highly recommend Vila Marta and if we return to Madeira in future wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

I arrived Tuesday 2nd July at 1am the morning where Joel was waiting for me. Friendly and helpful! They arranged a taxi to meet me at airport. I visited Madeira to explore the roots of our family as my grandfather was born in Ponta do Pargo in 1908.My first time in Madeira and Joel was so part of the search for family information and thanks to him was so successful. Just an amazing experience. Bruno helped me to book a rental car delivered to the front door. Excellent service.Close to nearest bus stop and a good 30 min run in the mornings via beach road to City center, spacious room, good beds, beautiful view, very very clean, strong water pressure for shower and bath.Kitchen very well equipped and if you want to safe on restaurants, Vila Marta has the perfect kitchen for you. Joel, his son Bruno and staff were the best, not to much in your face and always helpful. I will definitely return to Madeira and DEFINITELY stay at Vila Marta. Go see and experience yourself...PS:Try the local Take away Restaurant they recommend; i have discovered it to late...very very good food not expensive at all. Tinus

This has to be the most welcoming place at which we have ever stayed; warm hospitality throughout. Joel and his family made our holiday effortless and enjoyable,they were friendly and more than helpful.The whole hotel is well maintained and spotlessly clean. Fresh flowers, fruit and fridge pack to welcome us, also fresh breadrolls delivered to our door every morning. Advice on getting around the island, places to visit, bus timetables - even delivering us to the correct bus stop, were never too much trouble. This is the only place to stay, if you can't get a room then change your dates! Thank you Joel and family for making our holiday so memorable.

Room Tip: All good!Lift to all floors.

We mirror everything that has been said in earlier reviews. The attention to detail makes this property so different to others we have stayed at, for example the warmth of welcome, the genuine interest in their guests and the beautiful fresh flowers in the communal areas and in the rooms. Ours was primarily a walking holiday and the advice on routes and the bus timetables provided each day were offered with patience and proved invaluable.

Thank you Joel and Bruno for making this such a wonderful holiday, your excellent reputation is fully deserved.

We were most warmly welcomed, and then most admirably cared for by Joel and his family during our ten-day stay. As this was our first experience of Madeira, we were particularly grateful for all the good advice which was so readily available from our friendly and enthusiastic hosts whenever we needed to request it. Our apartment was very comfortable, and was carefully cleaned each day. The rolls that appeared at our door every morning ensured that we always had a good basis for our breakfast, and we also very much enjoyed the throughly international early-evening drinks party that Joel arranged for us and fellow-guests towards the end of our holiday. In essence, we feel able to put on record that the excellent rating which the Vila Marta has already achieved on the Trip Advisor site continues to be most fully deserved.
