Wedding Anniversary at the Quinta Jardins do Lago
My wife and I chose the Jardins do Lago based on Trip Advisor feedback and we have in no way been disappointed. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and were delighted to find on arrival that we had been given an upgrade to the Presidential Suite. This made our anniversary truly special which was made more special by the arrival of a cake and champagne to our room. We have nothing but praise for the hotel; it provided everything we had hoped, but above all, the peace and quiet we were really looking for. The hotel is located in a gorgeous setting; the gardens are wonderful and provide an air of tranquility and splendour. The hotel staff were outstanding; friendly and helpful. We miss our morning breakfast in the garden and our daily "good morning" to Colombo the resident Tortoise. The restaurant provided excellent food and the bar created some nice pre-drink cocktails. Overall, we had a wonderful week and can highly recommend the hotel to anyone seeking a quality establishment in a relaxing and peaceful setting.More

Two weeks in paradise ,from the welcome at recption on day one we were treated to a great experience ,beautiful public areas fantastic room with great views of the most wonderful garden you could wish for ,first class food in the Berisford restaurant terrific pool with first class poolside service and fresh cooked food ,great wine list ,terrific bar staff ,live music twice a week by truly professional entertainers (the management even put on an extra evening to suit our requests many thanks for this ) At the start of week two my cousin and her husband arrived to surprise us there secret was known and kept by all the staff and was a great source of fun for one and all (well done and thank you to all )I could go on and on listing the little things that made such a special place .We will be back if the hotel will have us ????? One final very big thank you to everyoneMore
If I return to Madeira this is the hotel I will go to. It is beautifully appointed and kept spotlessly clean. Because of the lack of children it is very peaceful and the pool often had no-one in it. There was a very wide range of food for breakfast including eggs to order. we were a little disappointed with the a la carte dinners but once we switched to table d'hote it surprisingly improved and was excellent value and with some good wines to drink. Our bed was enormous, 8 or 9 feet wide, with high quality bed linen. Drinks by the pool are reasonably priced. The grounds are a delight and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The courtesy bus runs every day and a taxi back in the evening is only 6 or 7 Euros. There was good wi-fi reception throughout the hotel including the pool. My only criticism would be the live music two nights a week which was poor and I was much happier when there was none. I am so glad we went here and not to one of the hotels in the 'hotel zone'.More

A relaxing haven for adults
Had a wonderful trip here. The gardens and the house are beautifully kept, and there are breath taking views from some parts of the grounds. It is just far away enough from the main part but in a taxi takes a few minutes to the harbour. We normally eat out and enjoy going to different restaurants, but the food here is exceptional, and high end and we found ourselves eating here most of the time. This is a good place to chill and distress, a proper grown up holiday and not an inflatable in sight!More

A hidden gem overlooking Funchal!!
What a stunning place with great staff, gorgeous grounds, the largest tortoise i have ever seen, a lovely pool area and a management team that were so friendly, helpful and true gentlemen!! My finance and I stayed here for a few days R&R after a very busy start to the year. After we discovered British Airways Holidays were now flying to Madeira we booked our flights and set off to Funchal. From the moment we arrived we were met by the management team who almost seemed like long lost family! They were so welcoming and whisked us straight to our room. We were greeted with fresh flowers and a gorgeous view of the gardens and the ocean in the background. The room was spacious and offered everything you would expect from a 5 Star hotel including speedy free wifi. The food was great and the pool area was just peace on earth. Thank you to everyone at the hotel, Duarte - what a team you have!! We will see you again soon.More
