A relaxing haven
This is one of the most relaxing hotels that we have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived and received a great welcome from Vitor, we knew it was going to be a lovely holiday. Our room on the third floor was spacious, elegant and very comfortable with a large and immaculate marble bathroom and fluffy robes. The view from the balcony over the extensive hotel gardens and the hills of Funchal was absolutely beautiful. As previous reviewers have said, the pool area is exquisite and the breakfast is very fresh and delicious. We had some lunches by the pool and a couple of dinners in the restaurant, and all the food was excellent. All the staff are so polite and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. If you like to relax in beautiful surroundings, and still be near the town centre ( a steep walk, but easy using the hotel shuttle or a taxi) then this is the hotel for you.More

Exquisite Madeiran Hotel
Returned last week from a wonderful 10 night holiday at this hotel. Really could not fault anything as the rooms, the service, the food and the setting were just perfect. Although the hotel is well out of the centre of town a complimentary shuttle bus service is provided four times a day, which we found more than adequate for our needs. The hotel is set in splendid beautifully maintained tranquil gardens and the original building is a magnificent old mansion that is full of character and antiques. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a junior suite and the room was stunning with the unexpected bonus of a private terrace that we made full use of. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who worked so hard to look after us. Cannot wait to return to enjoy the lovely pool and say hello to Colombo, the resident giant tortoise.More

Very Special Madeiran Experience
When we first visited Madeira in 2006 we stayed at this excellent Quinta. We now know what a smart decision that was because so many people rave about this very special hotel. The only down side about the Quinta is the long uphill haul at the end of a busy day. Downhill to town is no problem and as taxis in Funchal are cheap you can always opt out and take the easy way home. The Quinta is set in beautiful gardens and the rooms are beautiful and so Madeiran. The Quinta has a rich history and a top class restaurant. We returned in Dec 2014 for lunch by the pool and were not disappointed. Same great service and even some of the same staff. Imagine our delight when the server remembered us from several years ago. Real classy place to stay for a special occasion in Madeira.More

The hotel was wonderful. A truely tranquil place. Good location so easy access to town and island. Very friendly, helpful staff who were always cheerful. They genuinely all seemed to love their work and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The hotel was excellent, comfortable, clean with great facilities and good food. The barmen made delightful cocktails. Would definitely go back to Funchal just to stay at this hotel.More

Lovely Hotel in Madeira
We booked a 5 night break for early July asking for a superior garden view room. On arrival we were given a free upgrade to a suite which was delightful. For the whole stay the hotel and staff could not have been bettered. We can certainly recommend this hotel without reservation. bear in mind you are a 20 minute walk down to the centre of Funchal and for the benefit of your feet would suggest a taxi either way at about 5 or6 euros - very good value. In fact all the scare stories we read about taxis were totally wrong, provided the taxi used a meter. Hotel breakfasts were a lovely combination of fruits salads and full English if you wanted it, all in the lovely gardens.More
