A hotel with soul, just like a good wine. The Vine is sophisticated and luxurious. With a touch of simplicity and discretion, just the way you like it. A dip in the panoramic pool, a vino-therapy session in the spa or a gourmet dinner with a view over the city: these are just a few of the pleasures awaiting you at The Vine.

The hotel is in a mall so you can not drive all the way to the hotel where the reception is on the first floor. Very noisy outside the hotel, both a lot of traffic early in the morning and a green stall with iron bars which are set up every morning by loud staff Agreed price with 2 at the reception on arrival and got it in writing but at check out the hotel demanded 240 Euro more discussed with the manager for 15 - 20 minutes with a waiting airport transfer outside. Very simple breakfast without variations and only back off bread that you usually buy at petrol stations and similar places, even if there was a fantastic bakery on the ground floor. Very soft mattresses and a thin duvet in plastic. Inadequate cleaning (same waste in the shower for a whole week) The hotel lacks trained managers in both the reception and the restaurant as well as housekeeping

I would have to agree with some of the reviews here - overall good but not really a 5*experience. Good location in the centre of Funchal, you can walk everywhere, restaurants, shops, marina. Having said that, Madeira is a place where one should definitely get a car to explore the island, so this is ideal if you are planning to stay in Funchal and walk places. The hotel has an underground parking though with plenty of spaces. Very nice view of the city and harbour, comfortable sleep, overall friendly and helpful staff. The hotel seems dated in some areas. The breakfast was quite basic and not 5*level. Same things every day, some items looked over cooked and greasy, pancakes are not really pancakes etc. I haven’t tried the spa but the prices are above market.

Room Tip: Rent a car (7M is a good option). Ask for a room with a view.

To be absolutely honest I couldn’t say it’s a 5* hotel. For me It’s always the little things which you notice and they can add up. No refills of tea and sugar, light bulbs in need of replacing in the spa, layers of dust on a main decorative feature in the breakfast room. Just these little touches that are easy fixes could make it superb. The Hotel to me appears a little dated and in places tired. Let’s not detract from the fact though it’s staff are friendly helpful and can not do enough for you. They work tirelessly to ensure you are well catered for during your stay and are well informed. The location. This is the big one. Funchal is a small town really but spread wide along the coast. The Hotel is smack bang in the centre of everything within easy 10-20 min stroll time of the old town, 5 min to the promenade/harbour and local parks. We spent the majority of our time heading to the harbour and old town. It’s got vibe, street music, character, some great eats and this is where you find the cable car up to the hills - do this. €16 return of €11 one way to walk back down. It’s been written before that the Hotel is atop a 3 tier shopping centre which has a supermarket and on the bottom level which is very handy set among various shops. There is a couple of restaurants literally on your doorstep. An Italian which was ok and a great little place called Coachella just down the cobbled street opposite the main entrance. We had a room facing the interior of the hotel and could not really see much, that said we didn’t spend much time there but if you want a room with a view I believe it was only the pricey top suit which offered this. We didn’t use the rooftop more than once. The lattes were €4, although there is a happy hour 17.30-18.30. The pool is warm, not heated and ok for a dip and a couple of lengths. The view is superb though over the city and harbour and you can see parts of the old Funchal merged with the new. Breakfast always had decent variety but overcooked fried eggs. Free use of steam room, jacuzzi and has treatments available at above average spa prices. All in it’s a great place to stay and I highly recommend it but 5* I thought not.

This is what a 5 star hotel should be, very professional but friendly and approachable staff, wonderful ambience, fantastic food and stunning views across Funchal. Some of the reviews seem to be of a different hotel from the one we stayed at. Being over a shopping centre means everyone knows where it is if you become navigationally embarrassed, but there is no noise or disturbance; the roof terrace pool, bar and restaurant never disturbed us at night and were a source of utter relaxation, quiet enjoyment and some of the best food we have ever tasted. The decor is uber designer, apparently each floor represents a different season; we were Autumn so very brown, but so relaxing. Rooms are luxurious, although the lights continued to baffle both of us, the beds huge and so comfortable, the shower like a warm tropical storm, and the bath big enough for both of us. There's also a bidet, great for washing your feet.......... The roof terrace swimming pool, with separate jacuzzi, is stunning and we spent a large part of our stay soaking up the sun and cooling off looking over Funchal and the sea. And the food; probably the best hotel food we've ever experienced, and among the best meals ever. The menu changes daily, or most days, so the highlights were the best steaks we have had for years, squid risotto, handmade bread, chocolate brownies with perfect ice cream, and professional but very friendly staff, like everyone we came across on this wonderful island. If you want the holiday of a lifetime, a short break or just to visit Madeira, this hotel is perfect, and we will be back.

I decided too take a long weekend break to Madeira and chose the Vine (5*) Hotel for my stay From start to finish my experience was second to none! It was simply outstanding On arrival, I was gratefully upgraded to a Grand Deluxe room which was stunning The attention to detail is simply awesome and its very apparent that the House-Keeping Team do a remarkable job in preparing rooms and keeping them updated during your stay My meals were incredible and the in my view, given both the quality & presentation, not overly expensive either. I pass along my sincere thanks to the Chefs, so often the "unsung hero's" of a restaurant, for the amazing food that they produced A huge call out to Victor on reception for kindly upgrading my room, for being so kind & friendly during my stay. Notwithstanding, his wonderful sense of humour. Many thanks Victor Another call out for Marina (a member of the Waiting Team in the Restaurant). Marina has not been working at the Hotel very long, however given her attention to detail & kindness, you would have thought she has been there for your years! Marina, thank you so much for making my meals with you such a lovely experience & please keep up your good work! You are a credit to the Restaurant Team there! So would I return to this Vine Hotel? ........Absolutely I will, most likely with my wife next time so she too can experience a wonderful stay at this wonderful hotel Please kindly pass along my sincere thanks to ALL the team there at the Hotel for making my stay so very special! With my best wishes & thanks to you all Kevin (Room 210)
