Great hotel - what a lovely place to stay for our first trip to Madeira. Very large 7th floor room with beautiful views over the pools and Atlantic ocean. Buffet style meals with the added bonus of other "dine around" options on site which we tried - Italian, Japanese and traditional Madeiran. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and a special mention for Suzy, who cooks the eggs for breakfast outdoors every morning!

Star of the show for us were definitely the outdoor pools and sunbathing deck area with our own bar serving lovely food and cold beers. Would 100% stay here again. Definitely recommended!

Had high hopes after reading good reviews. Staff here are very nice and helpful. If you are not happy with something or need something they will always resolve it for you. If you don't like the hairdryer you can ask reception and they will loan you a very good one. If you don't want to have dinner you can ask for a lunch voucher and use it at the pool restaurant between 12 and 3.

We really liked the fitness instructors here and the free classes. We did body combat, body balance and circuits. The gym is stifling hot as it is a glass building often in full sun and they open the windows rather than use the air conditioning. The staff in the gym were lovely. The location is great as you can walk to the Lido or to Funchal centre really easily.

My rating is not a 5 for the following reasons: We liked the hotel during the day but didn't stay at the hotel in the evening as the food was not as good at night and there is no atmosphere. Breakfast and lunch are fantastic but dinner at the buffet was weird. Strange combinations of food and no choice for a vegetarian (we do not eat fish). For this reason we tried a couple of times but swapped to getting lunch vouchers as lunch is great. There are so many restaurants nearby to try.

We tried Mama Mia but had a terrible experience. Firstly the set menu for half board was not explained. We ordered from the a la carte menu and then overheard someone else having the menu explained and realised we'd have to pay. This would have been fine if we were told up front. Then it took 30 minutes for our order to be taken. Then our main came and my vegetarian risotto had a prawn leg in it. We complained and they couldn't have been more apologetic and replaced the dish as well as not charging for food or drinks and we had two phone calls from guest services to apologise. This was very kind. We didn't try the other restaurants at the hotel as we don't eat fish and there was nothing vegetarian at the Portuguese restaurant.

The hotel is nice inside but fairly industrial on the sea deck and pool area. The infinity pools look nice but smell weird. A mixture of salt and chlorine and they leave you a bit sticky. Sunbeds are always available however as are towels. The olive garden area for sunbathing is a nicer view but the pool is not great there and had lots of screaming kids in it. The snack bar there was handy. There are not enough choices for food and drink during the day. There is a really lovely shop and café across the road which is extremely cheap. Go here for a snack, coffee and cake or even an alcoholic drink. We couldn't believe the prices. The Hole in One pub does reasonably priced snacks and drinks and is always buzzing with customers. Live music every night was great. We came here after dinner most evenings as the cocktail bar in the hotel lacks atmosphere and is more expensive.

Our room key stopped working at least 6 times and was never put near our phones so this was odd. It was annoying to wait for the lift to go to reception to get this sorted. The lifts are too small for the hotel given that you cannot use stairs after floor 4. We waited 5 minutes one evening for the lift and were nearly late for dinner at Villa Cipriani because of the delay. Villa Cipriani is amazing.

We did enjoy our holiday and loved Madeira but saw other hotels we'd probably have preferred as this one was a bit impersonal but to be fair we picked it for location and fitness facilities.

Could not fault this hotel: friendly and efficient staff with superb service and excellent food. Bubbles for breakfast should you so desire! We wanted a top floor room, in a quiet position with balcony and unlimited sun and sea views. That's exactly what we got. When we asked for softer pillows we got them within an hour. There are three pools (one heated) with ample sun loungers and if the towels run out they are replaced immediately. Views to die for and if they don't kill you the staff will smile you to death. And good with children. They handle anything between two months and 92 years with aplomb. A very happy, first class hotel due to the efficient manager and management. Hopefully returning each Spring.

Beautiful hotel, very clean and spacious rooms. The staff were so happy and friendly all the time, nothing was too much trouble. Food was great and plenty of variety, also a chef on hand cooking in the morning and lunch time. Free safe and excellent fridge. stocked and only 6 euros to be opened. Two beautiful infinity pools and the nicest life guards you could meet, very knowledgeable about the area.

Our 4th time to Madeira but first to the Vidamar. Loved it. Staff were helpful and friendly. 8th floor room immaculately clean, beds huge and comfortable, views wonderful. No charge for the use of the room safe but you have to pay E6'S for the mini bar to be opened and stocked. The tea/coffee making facilities are meagre (only 2 tea bags and two coffees per day) and we never did work out the milk arrangement. In the end we bought coffee and long life milk from the local shop. Only ate in at breakfast which was self-service but of a really good standard and with lots of choice. At sea level there are two lovely clean salt-water pools surrounded by lots of sun bed areas and helpful staff with towels. Easy access if your fancy is sea bathing which is roped off and supervised. The water is crystal clear and there are even scuba lessons available for the more adventurous. Indoor, the spa pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi were beautifully clean and generally quiet. Forgetting the coffee/tea thing which was of no real consequence, the Vidamar is a lovely hotel and Madeira a lovely island to visit and I think most people would struggle not to come away feeling that it had been money well spent.

Facilities excellent. Setting is beautiful and the service and food were very good. Poolside staff attentive, towels provided and always more beds than people and access to the sea was easy. Rooms large and cleaned daily with wonderful view. Fridge available at 6 euro charge which included 6 items. Good hotel advice on trips and when our daughter needed a doctor.
