Great place to stay! We stayed in the old part of the hotel and our room overlooked the gardens to the sea and had a lovely balcony. The room was very clean and the bathroom had two wash basins, a bath and a bidet. The hotel is in two parts and there is a modern part with steps into the... More

What a find! Great hotel - comfortable rooms, friendly staff, great food - what's not to like? Breakfast was varied and plentiful. We also dined in the restaurant twice and had great food. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and I would recommend this hotel.

Enjoyed a very pleasant 10 days in this hotel. Our room was comfortable and the balcony overlooking the gardens and pool caught the afternoon sun nicely. On asking, the hotel was happy to provide us with a kettle and tea cups in our room so we could sit out and enjoy a cuppa in the afternoon. We stayed on a... More

An hotel of two halves; garden and/ or sea "views". We elected for garden. Allocated ground floor room abutting the lawned area in front of their restaurant with an enormous king size bed. Mini bar included. Sea water swimming pool available with towels provided. Good swimming in 1.2m deep pool. Facilities are excellent. Restaurant not bad, but there are 3/4... More

We are finishing our holiday in Funchal which has been really lovely with lots to do on this little island. We have particularly enjoyed our stay at this hotel which has a quiet location, spacious rooms, very nice staff, great restaurants, and a large swimming pool. We will be coming back !

As per other reviews the hotel is in fact two hotels but marketed as one, so it depends on what you want. The older Quinta Da Penha Franca (QPF) is further up the hill away from the sea and has very nice gardens with what might be described as a colonial shabby chic style interior. This hotel has a relatively... More

Nice hotel with very rich breakfast buffet. Has two swimming pool, one just by the hotel and a second, way larger, just by the sea (you'll need to get out from the garden to get to the other sector of the hotel). Wifi available in the reception and pool area. Within walking distance from the ferry to Porto Santo, about... More

There was a little bit confusion regarding the room as we booked a room with sea view in the Quinta Da Penha De Franca and the room we got was in the sister property called Penha de Franca Mar but turned out that we were upgraded to the suite ( there are only 3 and they are above the restaurant)...

This hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Funchal - there are also plenty of buses if you don't want to walk. We had a comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the gardens and the sea. However, the ventilation fan in the bathroom/WC was not working. We reported this every day to reception, and on one occasion... More

This is a small hotel set in gardens about ten minutes walk from the town centre. It has a salt water pool with views over the harbour, lovely gardens. The staff are all friendly and pleasant. We had a 'garden room' which was actually a totally separate building - a little bungalow with a huge bedroom. The decor was old... More
