Recent guest reviews

We had an amazing stay at The Vine. A beautiful hotel with excellent service. The rooftop pool and bar is spectacular and the staff helps with anything you might need. The rooms are beautiful and modern, amazing shower!! Overall a wonderful experience!

Excellent hotel, staff very friendly and helpful - we were unexpectedly upgraded to a suite, as well as some free bubbly, as it was our honeymoon. Rooms are very nice, modern clean and functional. Easy to use central console for all the lighting, blinds etc. And a great shower age huge bath, particularity liked the waterfall taps everywhere. The rooftop bar was great too, excellent cocktails (some unique ones), amazing view, and a jacuzzi along one side of the roof (looking towards the hills) and the pool along another side, looking over towards the sea. Very good spa, the couple's retreat was great, over 2 hours and 4 treatments, pricey but worth it. Breakfast excellent, good range of hot and cold food on the buffet, plus more you can request, with some variation each day. There's a gym too but we never made it down there! Overall one of the best hotels we've stayed in, both in terms of service and room quality. No compromises on anything either, which is nice, and the staff can't do enough to help you.

The hotel is excellently placed in the center of the town and is part of the vie shopping complex. The rooms are average size and enough for 2 people to stay comfortably. However the modern lighting system can take a bit of time to get used to. As it was our 25th wedding anniversary, the hotel made us feel very welcomed with champagne, chocolate and fruit. Very nice touch. Would definitely stay here again

Beautiful ultra modern and chic boutique hotel in a great location. Without exception the staff were unfailingly courteous, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a fantastic breakfast each morning. Marvellous weeks holiday 🌞

Loved everything about this hotel and my stay there ! Staff was very friendly and accommodating and my was fantastic , no issues with the lighting ! I will definitely stay there again on my next visit !

Wonderful staff who were very accommodating and truly cared about their jobs. Beautiful hotel. Breakfast was terrific. Location of hotel was Devine Pool area was lovely and comfortable and the service there was a pleasure

I am still on holiday but we are so impressed with the hotel that I wanted to write a review now. The hotel is situated on top of a shopping centre in Funchal. Though it sounds odd, it is almost like entering a private club - the elevators from the shopping centre are activated by the room key so it feels secure. The ambience is mellow. The rooms are modern with a pod type bathroom with walk in shower. Breakfast is lovely and served from 7. I am an early riser and love to go straight down to breakfast. I don't have time to write more because I am off to a Madeira wine tasting courtesy of the hotel this afternoon.

The vine is in an excellent location in the heart of Funchal. Surroundings very modern and chic. Staff excellent throughout hotel. View from rooftop bar and pool glorious. Breakfast excellent with a lovely tranquil garden area. Would thoroughly recommend.

There are many lovely aspects of The Vine - the excellent staff, the top floor pool, bar and restaurant areas; reception and breakfast room are good and the hotel's location is perfect. For those who do not understand my review title, The "Curate", when asked how has egg was, replied that it was "good in parts"!!!! However, the rooms are a triumph of design over functionality and, for that reason I will not stay there again.

We returned tonThe Vine as we enjoyed our previous stay in 2015. It didn't disappoint.....the breakfast is perfect, many hot and cold choices and to be able to sit outside in October at 8am to eat it......perfect. The rooms are very comfortable, not much in the way of views as the hotel is in the middle of Funchal but our room overlooking the atrium was very quiet. The rooms are a little dark and the lighting takes a little getting used to but fine for us on our second visit. Bed massive and comfortable, shower great. The rooftop pool small but lovely along with the cocktails served up there. Loads of excellent eateries within walking distance. Would we visit again....definitely.
