Apartment in Lido, Funchal, Madeira - Exclusive Location 50m From Promenade And Lido Pools
- english, french, spanish, portuguese
I was born here in Portugal and I was bought up in the UK from the age of 10... I worked in Social Housing before in the UK before moving back to Portugal. I have been in working in the tourism industry for the past 12 years mainly in Portugal.
Joe purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Joe chose São Martinho
The main reason why i bought the apartment in this area was due to it's location as it is one the sort out locations in Madeira. Where the apartment is situated there are not many apartments and as you know Madeira is hilly this apartment location is mainly on the flat and close to the Promenade and all facilities at your door step. Another reason is the quality of the finish of the apartment which is of the highest quality and it's large Terrace. 2018 the apartment has gone through a major refurbishment with air conditioning in all rooms
What makes this Apartment unique
All facilities are at your door step. High quality apartment. Spacious apartment. Location, no hills to climb. Promenade 50 metres away and Lido pools. No need for car.

Great location, great property.
This is an amazing property in the heart of the Lido area. It was spotlessly clean on arrival. There were three adults in our group. the apartment is large and the patio area is huge. The beds were comfortable and the 2 shower rooms meant that we never had to cue !
There was everything that you could possible need for a stay including a washing machine and dishwasher, neither of which we used.
Although we were surrounded by restaurants, there wasn't really a smell of food. There was some traffic noise but a small price to pay for the location, within walking distance of the lido, the promenade and loads of restaurants. The bus stop is just over the road and up a bit.
We got full use out of the Yellow bus tours and went on an incredible tour of The West with Lido Tours.
I would recommend Bella Ilha restaurant (just underneath and reasonably priced)
We had a fabulous time in Funchal and I would highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay- it really added to our Funchal experience.
Thank you for your review and your comments it was lovely having you all here in this fabulous apartment. Look forward in having all back
Really nice place everything you could need close to shops and restaurants
Really good property
Nice, clean, modern apartment, with good facilities. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Just a couple of negatives the entrance is near a large bin storage for restaurants near by which the smell wasn't nice at times. The outside area to the apartment not very private and doesn't get much sun.
Very nice stay for our first time in Madeira. Hired a car for a week and was able to see lots of great sites.
Spotlessly clean and very well located flat
Spotlessless clean and well located flat, a couple of minutes walk from the seafront and on good bus route to central Funchal and also on the airport bus route. It also has the advantage of a parking space in an underground car park in the basement although I found this a bit tricky to access down a steep spiral, don't think I would bother hiring a car in future as public transport is so good and driving generally on the island tricky as it is so mountainous.
Had an amazing stay. Beautiful apartment with everything you need. Great location. Friendy and helpful owner. Would highly recommend this accommodation. There was four of us and we never ran short of space. Really enjoyed and would definately stay here again. Sharon & Co from Jersey
Great experience. Everyone involved were super, nothing was too much trouble. Good communication. The apartment is situated in a super location for the sea, shops ,supermarkets and lovely walks on the promenade.
We would definitely stay here again.Only reason I’m giving a 4* is because the apartment needed updating but as you can see now ,it looks SUPERB! Well done Shr Mario,you’ve done a great job!
