What a wonderful world
As Louis Armstrong sang "I see trees of green red roses too" ,and thats just the view from our balcony. This Quinta is a truly wonderful place to relax well away from any form of stress. Without doubt the most relaxing 24 hours we have spent for many a year. Outstanding service ,good food and wine all amidst a spotlessly clean and well maintained hotel and gardens. A big mistake by us only staying one night but we plan to rectify that just as soon as we can.More
Best holiday we have ever had
This hotel is fantastic. The rooms are large and well appointed. The food on half board is excellent with a five course evening meal and a breakfast with a large choice to satisfy everyone. However it is the staff who make this hotel, they are kind and courteous and nothing is too much trouble for them.More
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen! We want to thank on this way again for the wonderful week at your hotel - already for the third time we were allowed to take up your unique services. The flat (303) was miraculous - the staff at the hotel very carefully and friendly, the room service and the daily cleaning up was perfekt! The exclusive cuisine and the restaurant staff is also to be emphasised - the dishes tasted magnificently - the service was very carefully at high level - the wine choice is extensive and the wine recommendations met our taste to 100 percent! We are already glad about the next vacation at your hotel. Best regards U. & Ch. E.More

We had a fantastic week here with our two children.
The food and hotel service were second to none. I travel all over the world and this rates with the best hotels that I have ever stayed in. The gardens are stunning and the hotel is just a short walk into Funchal (10 mins) with a number of the museums even closer than that. A particular point of interest for the children was Colombo (Giant Tortoise) who lives in the garden and appeared each morning to have his chin tickled!More
Oasis of Calm
After arriving three days late due to flight cancellations, we only managed to spend three days of the expected week at Quinta Jardins do Lago. We were all rather stressed and fatigued when we arrived in Madeira. However, we couldn't have asked for a better hotel to ease those stresses away. The hotel is set in lovely grounds; the views and the wonders of nature, including plenty of birdsong, really helped us to relax. The staff are absolutely wonderful; they were friendly and attentive. They are a real credit to the hotel. It's possible to have breakfast outside, although as it's first come first served and typically the guests' first choice, it's best to arrive before 9am. One highlight was meeting Colombo the giant tortoise from the Galapagos Islands. He is beautiful and doesn't mind being stroked gently, and we enjoyed feeding him banana. Dinner is silver service so it is a formal affair, although guests do not have to adhere to a dress code. We spent one of our three days lounging by the pool and generally chilling out, to include having lunch in the outdoor bistro area. We all found this very relaxing and a welcome respite. We also found the courtesy bus into Funchal and back very useful, although this service does not operate during weekends. If we return to Madeira, we would have no hesitation in staying here again. Thank you to the staff at Quinta Jardins do Lago for a wonderful holiday in Madeira.More
