    On arrival we were met outside by the porter and shown up to Reception, check in was very quick and efficient, we were then taken to our room and shown in detail how everything worked. It is very modern and has buttons for almost everything.The staff were extremely helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend this hotel, it is right in the centre of Funchal so everything is on your doorstep. Only problem was the weather, it rained most days - still the hotel couldn't do much about that.

    The staff is very friendly and helpful! Cleaning of room twice a day! Spa is really nice! Location of the hotel! Atmosphere is really great! Cascade shower!

    Sometimes it's not enough light in the room! Indoor swimming pool is actually jacuzzi as well!

    I found the hotel staff friendly and oozing typical Madeiran charm and helpfulness. The hotel was superbly located a couple of minutes walk away from the botanical gardens overlooking the marina. The mountain view from the terrace bar and lounge was spectacular and provided a scenic photo setting. The room was clean and comfortable, and the cascade shower in the bathroom was just lush. I recommend trying the fiambre [ham] and fresh pão caseiro [home-made bread] at the buffet breakfast; the gãlao [Portuguese café latte] is one of the best I've had in Portugal. The Vine is the first five-star hotel that has ever offered me a newspaper to read at breakfast, which was a pleasant surprise. I will be definitely staying at this hotel again during my next trip to Madeira.

    There is not enough light near the safe deposit area in the bedroom, which means it is difficult to read the instructions on the box if you arrive late at night.

    Atmosphere not only of the room but of the whole facilities in the hotel, whose theme is integrated in "Wine Grape". Also, their restaurant on the top floor "UVA" was very nice. All the staff was very friendly.

    Personally, the bath tab in the room was difficult to use.

    Superb

    What pleased me the most was the staff, room comfort and hotel design. The staff is extremely nice and always eager to help. The room was very comfortable and clean. Had several detail wish were very useful and pleasant to have (free bottle of water, free wi-fi). The breakfast is great and served with care (some dishes are a la carte and are included). The common areas are well decorated and very appealing, especially the roof top bar and restaurant. the location is also great it's a 5 minute walk to the casino and city center.

    There was only one thing that I didn’t like, which was the fact that on Saturday nights (during the summer) the hotel promotes parties on the roof top, which star at 11pm and go all night long. I wasn’t aware of this and woke up with the noise. The only solution provided by the hotel was to move to another room, wish I didn’t want. They only lowered the sound at 2am, after a lot of complaints from my part. Nevertheless, the hotel didn’t charge for that night and assured me the party concept would be revised for next year. That is the only unpleasent remark I have to make.

    location, breakfast, service, beautiful and stylish, nice city view

    stylish sometimes at the expense of practicalness (e.g. door handles and shower gel tube created to break your nails)

    We were staying for 2 weeks at another hotel in Madeira but wanted to stay one night in this design hotel as well. So we had a city trip to Funchal within our vacation. The hotel is located at the Dolce Vita shopping center and is perfectly situated at the heart of Funchal. The staff is very friendly and professional. The swimming pool on the top of the roof is amazing. We especially liked the long jacuzzi with its view on the mountains and Funchal. The room was luxurious and spacious. But like an Italian car: it all looks very good and nice but sometimes it is not all that convenient. It didn't bother me though, I just noticed it. If you compare the price of this room with a five star hotel elsewhere in Europe, this is a real bargain and very good value for your money. If you're going to Funchal I will definitely recommend this very cool design hotel, you really feel that this is an extroardinary place to stay.

    Personally I would not stay here with children, there is not much to do for them, the pool is too small to really play and splash and to do what kids want to do in a pool. Also, if you really, really, seriously don't like darkish colors, this might not be the place for you to stay. But to put it in perspective; I don't like dark colors that much (and especially purple, which is the leading color in the hotel) but I really loved how it was applied at the Vine. It is very well done, it all makes sense. If you like design and appreciate something different; you'll love it!

    Great rooms with a lovely design. The hotel offered spa, a fantastic restaurant, great training facilities at a health center and not at least; a bar and a swimmingpool at the top flore. The Vine is brilliantly situated in the middle of Funchal. Hotel staff was both very positive and service minded. We loved the stay at The Vine.

    This hotel was very chic and the public areas were amazing. Staff, particularly those in the dining room and bar, were very courteous and friendly.

    Some aspects of the design of the bedroom had not been well thought out.

    Excellent design hotel, right in the centre of Funchal. Major advantage being inside a Shopping Center, with free parking. Highly recommended the roof terrace pool....

    The room was spacious and comfortable. The location is very central to Funchal. The spa was excellent. The view from the rooftop pool, stupendous.

    It was a bit of a hassle to ask a staff member everytime we needed to get the car in or out of the garage.
