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.

Lovely Hotel

My husband and I visited Madeira for the first time and choose to stay at Quinta Jardins do Lago Hotel on a half board basis for 10 days. The Hotel and gardens are kept to an excellent standard and the service of all the staff could not have been better. We found our room lovely, clean and spacious with plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space. All the food was excellent quality and served by friendly and efficient staff. Everyone ay the hotel (staff and guests) were very friendly and it was easy to relax in the lovely spacious and peaceful surroundings. We walked down to (and back up) Funchal on several days and enjoyed the organised trips to both the East and West of Madeira booked for us by the reception staff. We had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely choose this hotel if we return to MadeiraMore

A gem of a hotel!

My wife and I decided this year to visit Madeira for the first time and made the right choice in opting for the Quinta Jardins do Largo. An excellent establishment, in a perfect position for the downhill walk into Funchal. It is a beautiful,immaculate,hotel, rooms to the highest of standards,the service staffs awareness of their guests needs are a top priority. Hotel is surrounded by a highly maintained garden with swimming pool area where I may add I had a fantastic Mojito! Food is of a very high quality and of a reasonable price so dining there is no hardship. All this made our stay very enjoyable and should we ever return we would place Do Largo at the top of our list.Well done!More

Fantastic stay, and will be back!

Such a lovely place to stay - from arrival to the sad moment of leaving it was amazing. Reading through the other reviews has reminded me of the people I met around the hotel - such a friendly place, and everyone staying really got into the 'Lago' way of relaxing. The staff were wonderful, and very respectful - so, so friendly without being overbearing. Everyone speaks very good English (and German and Italian and French) ...! Top tips :) We had a garden view room which was lovely, but next time I would ask for a top floor room for the views and so I couldn't hear squeeky floorboards from above - minor niggle, but I'm a light sleeper. For lunch try the 'prego' at the pool area - so tasty, and enough to feed two. The pool is cold in the morning, but I liked that! It was warmer by the afternoon. Don't panic about getting a sunbed in the morning, it's a chilled and easy going place with enough room for all. Try out some table tennis - bats behind reception. Downstairs below the dining area there is a library where you can swap books and games area - the pool table is real good quality. WIFI is free and works right through the complex. The reception staff will book anything and everything for you - and are full of useful advice. Use this service, it's faultless. For a tour (which we did twice), have the reception book a people carrier taxi tour with Aldo - fantastic value for 4 of you at 120 euros for a full day. You get to see all the normal must see places, but then in addition some hidden gems too, and without having to be crammed on a coach with hoards of other people. Aldo had loads of interesting Madeiran facts and was very knowledgable and fun. Fantastic.More

The perfect holiday

We have booked a weeks stay at the Quinta Jardins do Lago for our honeymoon as we were looking for a small, quiet hotel. The hotel was the perfect choice. Nothing could have been any better: the building and gardens are beautiful, very well kept and clean, the staff is excellent - always friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is very relaxed and peaceful, the food is delicious. The hotel is a very special place and we will definitely come back.More

Peace & tranquility in abundance!

This was a fabulous place to stay steeped in history with fantastic gardens! On arrival we were given an upgrade to a junior suite with it's very own roof top terrace - out of this world! Breakfast was very good, lunch by the pool so relaxing! The staff were amazing - nothing too much trouble and they were all very polite! Loved the turn down service too! Yes the hotel is up a hill in a residential area but you wouldn't know this once in side! Really deserves it's top rated on Tripadvisor! Would definitely return!More
