We were upgraded to a superior twin/double on the ground floor. The room was spacious with lovely views of the amazing gardens from the balcony. Everything was of the highest quality, all in traditional style. The service was excellent from reception, the restaurant and the pool bar. The pool area is a lovely feature with large pool and comfortable sun loungers. The gardens are so spectacular that they have occasional visits from groups coming to see them. We thoroughly enjoyed our five days in the hotel and will certainly be returning in the future.More
Paradise in Funchal
We have just spent a fantastic fortnight in Quinta Jardins do Lago. The room was a superior double with a balcony which afforded a view of the gardens. Everyone from the room maid to waiters to reception staff and manager were polite and very accommodating at every request. Food was a delight to the eye and flavourful on the tongue. The gardens are full of various species and there is Columbo the tortoise, who has spent the last 50 years there. There is a pool with poolside food, gym, sauna, library and so much more. We will return.More
A wonderful oasis - a real hidden gem. We stayed at Jardins do Lago for a few days last year and were so impressed that we returned this year for a week to celebrate our ruby wedding. It is immaculately clean with polite and courteous staff who seem genuinely happy in their jobs and always helpful. The views and the beautiful gardens along with a gorgeous pool give this the wow factor the hotels along the seafront strip can only dream of. If you want a peaceful retreat in a wonderful setting this hotel cannot be faulted. We can't wait to return!More
An outstanding Quinta.
My wife and I have just returned from a most pleasant week spent in Quinta Jardins do Lago, located near Funchal. This beautifully historic Quinta, with its stunning gardens, provides a sensational environment for complete relaxation and enjoyment of the Madeira lifestyle. The cuisine is superb, the staff most courteous and helpful and combined with luxurious accommodation, the atmosphere encourages a complete relief from tension. We certainly intend to return again. Mantenha o bom trabalho. Rob445040More
A place for relaxing
Beautiful historical house transformed in a hotel and extended with a new building settled in a well kept spacious garden with many species of plants. The rooms are furnished in traditional way, that's a point of taste. Staff is extraordinary watchful and professional. Adalbero the second manager takes care of his guests very well, in my case he organized a welding of my bike suitcase. Also he took my wife and me to the other place he manages Quinta Branca to give us a choice. I felt a great hospitality. A place I will come again when returning to Madeira.More
