    • Older travelers

      Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Spotless clean rooms, really the very highest standard.

    • Family with children

      Our stay at Vila Marta was great, the owner and his son really helped us a lot in finding good restaurants and in enjoying Madeira. The room was perfect and clean and we had flowers and fruits waiting for us the day of our arrival. Also the owner gave us as a gift a box of the most beautiful flowers we have ever seen. Thanks a lot!!!

    • Older travelers

      We were perfectly taken care of by the management: they fixed taxi from/to airport, car rental at the reception, our immediate needs at arrival and fresh bred every morning. And they were always ready to take care of our little problems. Thank you Marta, Joel and Bruno for a most memorable stay in Madeira. We recommend Vila Marta to everyone.

    • Couple

      It's been a wonderful time at Vila Marta. The friendliness of the owner family is exceptional. They were incredibly helpful and treated us like friends. The room itself is perfectly clean and has a nice size, including kitchen, a little sitting room area and a nice big balcony. It has two beds but they can be put together. They have free Wifi in the lobby. Vila Marta is perfect for everyone who likes to enjoy a quiet holiday, and a perfect location to explore the island. We will be back!

    • Couple

      Vila Marta is a small guesthouse with 9 apartments, situated on the outskirts of Funchal away from the noise and general hubbub, but within easy access and with views over the city and the sea. Joel & Bruno place great importance on the success of their guests' holidays, and do anything they can to help you have a wonderful time.

    • Older travelers

      Very high service mindset among the personel and in generel a very welcoming athmophere. We received a twin room with balcony, flowers, fruits and a great view over the sea. Everyting very nice and clean. Kitchen was well equipped including a microoven. Free morning bread delivered every day outside the room even though breakfast was not included. Very good supermarket and restaurent in walking distance from the apartments. Free parking outside the hotel. Free wireless internet was available in the reception area. Thanks for nice stay. We will come back.

    • Group of friends

      Quiet, family-run inn with a focus on pleasing guests. Fresh bread delivered to rooms every morning. Always available to answer questions, very conscientious about ensuring safety of guests throughout their stay. Gave a beautiful flower bouquet at check-out to take with. Would definitely stay again.

    • Couple

      My best recomendation for this hotel! Friendly owners will provide you with fresh bread every morning, and also with fresh fruits as a welcome gift. You really will feel like at home living there. Big and well furnished room and kitchen. Nice ocean view.Free parking on the street.

      Pretty far from the city center. But if you rent a car on the island, it really doesn't matter.

    • Older travelers

      The location is ideally suited for exploring Madeira. We rented a car and avoided the daily hassle and expense of Funchal. The Alves family is extremely accommodating. The facilities are spotless and adequately comfortable. Breakfast overlooking the sea was a wonderful way to start each day.There are restaurants and a huge supermarket within walking distance. Internet is available in the lobby only. We'll definitely return to Vila Marta on our next trip to Funchal.

    • Older travelers

      We had a nice 2 weeks stay at Vila Marta. No problems at all. Nice and big rooms, balcony, kitchen etc. Fresh bread every morning. We used Bus 45 a lot, Busstop only 5 min from the hotel and 15 min. to downtown. Joao was very helpfull to arrange for taxi and to rent a car, Many thanks to Joao Joel and family. Thanks for flowers and wine. We will be back. High recommended. Regards from Peter, Iceland.

    • Couple

      This hotel is family-run and the staff is very friendly. They know everything about Madeira and are worthy consultants for any tour. Almost every tour agent knows the owner personally. Sometimes informing agents that your are staying at Villa Marta can bring you a considerable discount.

      On the map it looks like the hotel is close to the ocean, but it is not! The site is about 100 metres above the shore and you need to go up three steep ramps to reach the street where the hotel is situated. The breakfast consits of four big pieces of bread, and that's it. The store where you can buy all the rest is situated another 50 meters above the hotel.

    • Older travelers

      The warm welcome and the little extra's as: fruit, wine. Esp. The flowers when we leaved.

      It was very hard to find

    • Group of friends

      Friendly, helpfull owners (father and son), good location close to the city of Funchal, good access to the other parts of an island. Very clean, excellent ocean view - who knows for how long time, for the new, huge hotel/apartment buildings are to be seen under construction not far from Vila Marta, pity!

    • Older travelers

      Very friendly and helpful owners. Location is very convenient to explore the island, especially the west side. Beautiful view from the balcony.

    • Couple

      We liked very much our stay at Vila Marta (also loved Madeira). We think it was an excellent choice for our honeymoon. First thing, the owner family is very friendly and helpful. We did not really had time to learn too much about Madeira before getting there so all the advices from Mr. Bruno were a great help to us. Also they helped us with a lot of other things: taxi from the airport, renting a car, indications to good restaurants, shops, locations to visits. The room was very clean, spacious and well equipped (kitchen). Also to mention the beautiful flowers from Mr. Joel that we appreciated very much. Bus station to go to center of Funchal is very close (also we enjoyed the "montagne russe" trip with the bus :) Overall we highly recommend Vila Marta.

      The ventilation of the toilet was a bit noisy if using toilet during the night (it takes about 5-10 min to stop the ventilation after you close light for toilet). On the other hand, it ventilates very well and is only noticeable during the night, when everything is silent. Going to near-by supermarket by foot is easy on the map but challenging in reality because of the slopes specific to all roads in Funchal (and generally on Madeira). So renting a car is recommended. (Also is of real help if you want to explore Madeira and not just to visit Funchal)
