Holiday location

Monte Mar Palace map

Local Area

The Monte Mar Palace stands on Madeira’s rugged north coast, which is much less busy and developed than the rest of the island. So if peace, quiet, a secluded location and stunning views are what you’re looking for, this is the hotel for you: looking out across the Atlantic you really feel like you’re on the edge of the world. A short walk uphill brings you into Ponta Delgada, which has a small marina, but if you’re looking to explore further, the weekly shuttle allows you to explore Funchal’s old town with its cobblestone streets and colourful markets.

The hotel was excellent in every way. The staff very friendly, efficient and courteous, the accommodation excellent and the restaurant brilliant.

Optional excursions

Optional excursions can only be booked in resort and are subject to minimum numbers



Head into the hills above Funchal to the little town of Monte to admire the beautiful church and gardens and - if you’re feeling adventurous - ride a wickerwork toboggan back down the sloping streets towards Funchal. It’s fast and fun, guided by two runners in straw-boaters, but please note the ride is not included (expect to pay approx €25 direct to the drivers) and is taken at your own risk.
