This was our third stay in the Mar part of this hotel which I've previously rated highly but there were a number of detractions this time which resulted in a less enjoyable experience. Most irritatingly was the family of flying, biting insects that shared our room; by the end of 12 days I had been bitten about 30 times and... More

We went to Madeira to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel has a great location, a pleasant walk to the city centre. The gardens were lovely and we had a room in a small building of 4 rooms with a view of small view of the sea. We had booked half board which I very quickly realised was a mistake.... More

This hotel retains a lot of the character of the original quinta. The gardens are well kept and there are lovely views from the poolside area and many of the rooms. The best thing about this hotel is the location, walking distance from the town centre and plenty of local restaurants to choose from. The only things I would change... More

Traditional old world family type run hotel. Comfortable and had a nice open air restaurant for breakfast and evening meals. Fairly well located and in walking distance to the centre of Funchal. This was pretty good value and has many regular returning guests. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Loved Funchal lots of atmosphere with street music and lots... More

The hotel is ideally situated, a short walk from the centre of Funchal. Despite being so close to the centre, it is in very quiet surroundings with extremely friendly and helpful staff. I have stayed in the hotel on several occasions and have always enjoyed my stay.

The garden part of the hotel is stylish but not sterile, with great views from the balconies. In the web announcement, the hotel for some reason says about all rooms that they are 13 sqm. - this is not true. In fact the size of our twin room was more than the double. The breakfast is a good bouffet table... More

Very comfortable hotel with good food and service. Room had balcony looking out to the sea. Pleased in general, but bathroom and entrance to room dark. Hairdryer, which was built in, was very dated and hose got hotter than drying nozzle.. There was no alternative when we complained. Hotel was in a good area for access to restaurants and Funchal...

I've been only one night in this hotel while i was waiting for the flight to Milan the following day. We had booked to another hotel (Madeira Bright Star) but due to an overbooking we have been redirected to this hotel. The hotel is very beautiful and charming. Good position. Very beautiful swimming pool! I advice the hotel
