Vidamar Resorts Madeira

Estrada Monumental 175–177, Funchal, Madeira, 9000-100, Portugal

Formerly the CS Madeira, this large glass-fronted hotel overlooking a spectacular stretch of oceanfront was rebranded in 2012 as Vidamar Resorts Madeira. Guest rooms are modern and tastefully appointed, most with balconies on the water. Rates include breakfast and lunch; guests can choose from five restaurants, including a buffet, Italian, and sushi. Other amenities include a stunning sea-level platform featuring a bar and two seawater swimming pools; a thalassotherapy (uses the benefits of seawater) spa; and a well-equipped fitness center with a variety of classes. The hotel is also more family-friendly than many others on the island, offering Aquatica Kids' World for children up to age 11 and 24-hour babysitting services (for a fee).
