Voyage prive description v Hotel reality
Firstly let me say that the staff at the Vine are more than 5*, the facilities are probably when open also 5* However Covid 19 has changed matters, which one has to accept. But Voyage Prive still advertise that it’s 5* A la Carte dining, when in reality you are offered 3 choices from a set menu for dinner. Breakfast is a “served” buffet which is limited and not 5*. The gym and Spa are both closed. There is building work right next door. Be aware Voyage Prive answer to complaints is that you should ring the Hotel 2 days before arrival to check what’s available. If you do so, will they let you cancel? And offer a refund, don’t think so. So my advice is this is a nice hotel, with great staff, but it is not in the presence times able to offer 5* facilities etc, so don’t pay Voyage Prive’ 5 * prices unless of course you wish be your own agent and ring the Hotel yourself to find out which facilities are available.
Best hotel we visited!
Such an amazing hotel with the best service we ever experienced! Fantastic breakfast in spite of the corona situation. Central located and easy to access everything in Funchal. We could really recommend it to everyone :)
Perfect place to stay on many levels
Just came back from Madeira after spending 8 days at Hotel the vine. As mentioned on different reviews, the hotel is located on top of “La Vie” shopping mall. Very easy access from the street and perfect location for city centre or discover the rest of the island. When you get to the lobby you feel a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. We were staying in a deluxe prestige room facing the city. The room was very spacious and very well arranged. Very big bathroom with separate areas for bath, shower & toilets. Desk with 2 chairs and a big bed surrounded by windows. All facilities are there from toiletries, sleepers, dressing gown.... to mini bar, safe etc... turn down service late afternoon. On the top of the building you will find the bar (happy hours), pool, jacuzzi & restaurant with a very beautiful panoramic view. You do have a spa which was not open du to Covid 19. Madeira is a beautiful place but you could easily stay at the Hotel the Vine and have a great time. Due to the pandemic things are working a different way. Breakfast (buffet) is really nice and the chef will serve you (social distancing) and everything else is available to order from your table (including hot) outdoor or indoor. Very nice indeed. Dinner at the restaurant UVA should not be missed. Michelin recommended place with excellent value for money. If you like a gourmet dinner this is the place to go. A full dinner with amuse bouche, 3 course meal & mignardises all beautifully presented is excellent value for money at €30/pers. All the staff there is very knowledgeable. The sommelier Leonel is on top of his game and knows everything about the 200 Portuguese wines on the wine list. The service is extremely attentive and Carmo & Martin (maitre D) were the icing on the cake. All staff from reception (Elsa, Laura), to bar, restaurant etc... were extremely polite and friendly. All together, Hotel the Vine is a first class place which I would recommend to anyone. Excellent value for money with a personal touch and a bit of luxury. Thanks for making our stay a memorable and definitely enjoyable one. Top place to stay if in Madeira!
I ordered pizzas as a take away order for friends for my retirement lunch recently. They were freshly baked to order and fairly priced. The Staff were very friendly and had all the pizzas ready for collection at the agreed time so I did not have to wait. Would recommend this pub for pizzas
