This opulent hotel nods to its colonial past with its garden pool and elegant dining scene.
Set on the outskirts of Funchal, this 19th-century mansion has been converted into one of Madeira’s most exclusive hotels. The dining room oozes colonial elegance and is the ideal spot for trying Madeiran cuisine.

The hotel is just wonderful and the staff are fantastic. It was lovely to be able to sit quietly by the pool without blaring music and children screaming. Also the pool towels were lovely however some people took two each which meant that there were not always enough for everyone. Our room was spacious and very comfortably furnished. It is the first time we have been to a Quinta and we would love to come back one day. The breakfasts were quite incredible and it was nice to be able to sit outside in the morning an amazing choice of juices and well just about everything. We ate in the restaurant a few nights and the food was superb, the waiting staff could not be more helpful, however after several evenings eating in the hotel it was nice to go out and have some simpler dishes, but you could not fault the hotel for anything. The door key cards I found a little tricky and kept having to get them reactivated as they would not always work, but I guess that was just me. The staff at the desk are so helpful I had a very sore toe and wanted a pedicure, they were able to recommend the perfect place in Funchal. They would also book a table at any restaurant and book taxis whenever required, all done with utmost charm and manners. The courtesy bus is also very useful but you have to book in advance as it is not very large. It is much too hilly to walk down into Funchal once you have done it once you get the bus or a taxi. For me it was the perfect place though, the Madeiran people are so very niceMore
Our 4 night stay was just superb. The hotel itself, the staff, our room, the food, the wine....were excellent.If you can stretch to it, the Junior suites are well worth it. We really want to go back, and the sooner the better !More

We have just returned from a week's holiday at what is one of the best, if not the best, hotel we have ever stayed in. Countless reviewers have already utilised all of the superlatives it's possible to apply to describe this truly wonderful establishment. The main reason for this review is to seek to maintain the Hotel's thoroughly deserved rating - Number 1. We have to mention Esmeraldo Caldeira. Recommended to us by the very helpful receptionist, Rubina, 'Aldo' acted as our chauffeur for two excellent island excursions. Fluent in English, he was punctual, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. A truly wonderful holiday all round.More

Oasis of Calm in Madeira
This comment will be so positive that I fear for future availability! A shot in my foot maybe. But the excellence of this little knopwn establishment cannot be overstated. The calm, the fragrance, the food, the service, the appointments. And of course the sun. My wife and I had health problems over Christmas, and best advice was 'breath warm air'. So simple and cheap with mid day flight Easyjet out of Gatwick, one week of pandering, and other guests of like ilk. We could not have been more comfortable, and not once did we feel a need to leave the compound. Â£2000 covered our joint return trip easily even with abundant Remy Martin and wines. No loud piped music, babies yelling nor children laughing. Just the occasional swim, sun bathe, and inteligent gorge. Pure magic. Pure therapy. Look at www.jardins-lago.comMore
