A lovely hotel; but disappointing Room

We stayed here for one week in June 2015. The Hotel is very pleasant, situated in an elevated position about 15 minutes walk downhill to the centre of Funchal. A taxi going back is the recommended option. If you do walk, be careful! The main route in to Funchal is, at certain times of day, very busy. There are long sections without any pavement or footpath; and traffic can pass at high speed. The public areas of the Hotel are maintained to a very high standard. The gardens are attractive; and the pool area surprisingly quiet and relaxing. The staff, particularly on the front desk, were generally very helpful. See separate comment on our room When we were there the majority of other guests appeared to be on half board packages, which this Hotel is clearly geared to deliver. We travelled independently and opted for bed and breakfast only, as we prefer to spend our evenings in local restaurants. We ate only once in the Hotel from the a la carte menu; but felt that we had been relegated to a secondary dining room that lacked atmosphere. This is, as I have said, a perfectly decent hotel that would not disappoint most people. It offers a very traditional Madeira experience, delivered by courteous staff. If you want to relax in lovely gardens this is the place to go. Hotels are very much a matter of personal choice and taste. If it seems that this review damns Jardins do Logo with faint praise, it is probably more to do with the fact that we made a wrong choice on this occasion. For what it is worth, however, in today's market my view is that this hotel is some way short of the 5 star standard that other enthusiastic reviews imply. We stayed in Room 201, which should be avoided at all costs. This is described as an 'historical suite'. 'Old' would be a fairer description. The room has very little natural light, and its only window faces over a service/parking area adjacent to the kitchens. The décor was also extremely tired when we were there. I will not dwell on the insect infestation, which was never completely eradicated during our stay. There is a sun terrace on the roof area, but this does not immediately adjoin the room. All very odd! An incidental point that anyone needing wifi access should bear in mind. It is very poor in most areas of the hotel.More

Wonderful.....Absolutely Perfect!

This is the second time that my husband and I have stayed at this wonderful hotel. The first time was 4 years ago and it was just as wonderful now as it was then. The hotel itself is stunning. We were fortunate enough to have a suite (which was lovely) and we had the added surprise of our own private sun terrace on the roof.....sublime! The views were specular over Funchal. Its also gave us stunning views of the gardens , which are beautiful, and the sea. The staff are fantastic. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they always go about everything quietly and efficiently. The courtesy bus that goes down and back several times a times from the hotel makes getting into town easy and convenient. The hotel isn't very far away though so a taxi back was only about 4 Euros. The pool area is wonderfully peaceful and with the Bistro always there to provide lovely cocktails and light meals, you couldn't ask for a more relaxing, chilled out atmosphere. If you want to relax and kick back, this is the hotel to do it. We have already booked to go back next year after my daughters wedding as I have a feeling we will need the peace and tranquillity of this wonderful hotelMore

Gorgeous hotel and staff so friendly and helpful!

We were looking for a relaxing holiday and were not disappointed. Stunning gardens, beautiful room and pool. Everything spotless. The staff are polite, friendly and truly seem to want to be there. Nothing was too much trouble. There is a shuttle bus down to the marina although taxis are reasonable for the evening return but only a 20 minute walk down, which is an experience in its self. There are few hotels I would return to; this is one of them.More

One of the nicest hotels we have stayed - will be back!

We spent our 40th Wedding anniversary at this wonderful hotel. The staff made everything very special from the moment we arrived. The hotel itself is special. It is a very relaxing place to stay. The gardens are magnificent and Columbus the tortoise an added bonus. The rooms are spacious, the food wonderful including the very hearty breakfast. Lazing around the large pool sipping the occasional cocktail or beer means that you might not want to venture outside. However the walk into Funchal is manageable (about 15 mins downhill) and worth trying. We would definately recommend a taxi back which are plentiful and not expensive. The shuttle bus can also be used. We will be returning next year and are already sorting out dates.More

Brilliant hotel, lovely location very friendly staff.

Beautiful hotel on the outskirts of Funchal surrounded by gardens making it very peaceful. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable nothing is too much trouble. The hotel runs a shuttle bus into Funchal several times a day but it is easy and quicker to walk as long as you don't mind the steep hill down. The pool area with bar serving light meals and drinks is lovely and the restuarant is very good. You wouldn't need to venture out if you didn't want as everything you need is available at the hotel. We were upgraded from a superior garden room to a suite which was just fabulous, a massive bedroom and seperate sitting room. The ensuite bathroom had a bath and seperate shower and included bathrobes and slippers.More
