The excellence of Quinta Jardins do Lago
For us it was a wonderful experience to stay at this lovely Quinta. On our arrival we were made to feel most welcome and this continued throughout our stay. Our room was first class, a very good size, comfortable and with a balcony overlooking the beautiful botanical garden. We find it hard to find any fault at all - the cleanliness, its situation overlooking Funchal, the lovely pool and gardens, the delicious food and most of all the staff were outstanding. The amenities including the spacious pool with jacuzzi and a bar and an excellent bistro were superb. We enjoyed the elevated position and the peace and tranquility and we also enjoyed the stroll down through the local streets to Funchal. All in all we would highly recommend this hotel. The thing we liked least was leaving!!More

The service, the food, the accommodation, the gardens - all were first class. We booked half board and the food choice was excellent. The hotel has a beautiful elegance, the pool area is fantastic and the service is perfect - not "in your face" but exceeding my expectations. My mother and I were made to feel like VIPs and absolutely loved our week at Quinta Jardins do Lago.More
Whilst I agree this is a lovely relaxing small hotel there are some points I would like to highlight. The outside pool and grass area is small,when we stayed there were not enough sun beds and true to form towels were left for several hours sometimes by selfish guests ( not even high season). The area around hotel not particularly pleasant and yes its a long haul back, bus needs to be pre booked and limited times daily so not used We were on "half board" and we got 3 courses,2 choices each course,small portions and a lack of vegetables with main course,no potatoes at all with roast lamb! Breakfast buffet was very good and good choice of cooked food. Agree with all comments regarding staff exceptionally friendly and helpful in all areas.More

A wonderful hotel and a great experience
The reputation of this hotel grows annually and having just returned from a 10 day stay I can see why. Wonderful staff, outstanding food ( try the sweets at dinner), peaceful and beautiful setting. We enjoyed every moment and will return.More
Perfeact destination for a relaxing holiday.
First class Hotel, excellent food & facilities and a great place to unwind. Staff extremely helpful and attentive without being too much "in your face". The gardens were full of colour and unusual species and of course added to the overall peace and tranquillity. Thank you for a super holiday HowardMore
