Quinta Jardins do Lago  

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.

In the gardens, you’ll find more than 500 species of plants, as well as a croquet lawn and a big pool. There’s a plush bar with live music 2 evenings a week.

The best holiday ever

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at this hotel. The staff were amazing, professional and polite at all times. It must be the best holiday experience we have ever had. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were to a very high standard. The food was very good with our half board option we had a 5 course meal every evening. The pool is set in beautiful gardens .all perfectly maintained. This is not a hotel that gives you entertainment and all singing and dancing shows, it is laid back quiet and restful which suited us perfectly as we have very busy lives and just wanted a quiet escape. We will be returning !!More

Magical haven for garden lovers

My husband and I have just returned home after spending a wonderful week at Jardins do Lago. We had the most relaxing holiday experience possible. The hotel only has about 30 rooms, which means everyone is seen as an individual. The hotel was a former colonial home and still is furnished with beautiful antiques and feels grand yet not imposing.The rooms are beautiful and airy with balconies to enjoy the views of the magnificent gardens and Madeira beyond. The pool side terrace is inviting and the food there and in the restaurant is wonderful. The staff are as warm as the Madeiran Sun and the last word has to go to .Columbus, a fifty something year old resident giant tortoise who walks along the grass allowing young and old to give her a fuss and some fruit. Will be definately returning.More

What more to say about this wonderful hotel that has not been said by others. Staff, rooms, grounds, food all first class! It is quiet, away from the 'Hotel' area of Funchal, but only 15 mins walk away from the town, ignoring their excellent free shuttle service that is. Immaculate grounds, wonderful views and staff that could not do enough for you. A great experience!More

My Husband & I have just returned from a 10 day stay at this wonderful hotel. Everything about the Quinta Jardins do Lago is first class, from the rooms with stunning views over the gardens and sea to the friendly helpful staff. Nothing was to much trouble, and as for Luis and his cocktails!!! This is a small hotel, only 40 rooms which makes all the difference, you get the personal touch. The old Quinta it's self is stunning, but the modern addition is complementary, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, you come back feeling completely chilled and refreshed. The location for some maybe a little to far out but it's only a 20 minute stroll into heart of Funchal, although it is a little steep at some points. The hotel do however provide a regular mini bus service to and from the centre, and taxis's are reasonable. We are planning our next visit, which will be in the very near future, I can't wait to be back there.More

Another great stay

Following a stay here 2 years ago we returned and were not disappointed. Staff are still as pleasant and helpful. They always greet you with a smile. and nothing appears too much trouble. If you are looking for a relaxing and quiet holiday this is for you. Breakfast and service is good. Nice dining area or eat outside on the veranda and in the garden. The gardens are wonderful. This time we stayed in a superior room with garden view - plenty of room and nicely decorated. From breakfast, to sitting around the pool to evening in the bar, everything is pure relaxation..Another wonderful stay (with a surprise bottle of champagne in our room).Can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.More
