We spent a wonderful week in this amazing hotel over Easter and can honestly say that it was the best hotel and holiday we have experienced. The staff are so helpful and professional and every detail is thought of, so you really do get to "switch off" and chill out. The rooms are superb and the food at breakfast, in... More

What a lovely place the Quintinha is! The hotel's own description of itself says it all - and it's all true. Many of the staff have worked there for several years. We've made several visits there over the years and it was wonderful to be welcomed back. The hotel is in a residential part of the town so is quiet... More

This was our 5th holiday at this hotel and this time we were accompanied by another couple. We visited this time especially for the flower festival.

Lovely hotel set in a quiet residential area. Friendly, helpful staff. Happy hour each night for cocktails welcome at the end of the day. Only 15 minutes walk to the main town though it's all down hill which means uphill to come back. Hotel offer a collection service from the airport. Tours can be arranged which pick you up from...

We originally booked this hotel for September 2014, but due to a rescheduled hospitalisation this had to be changed. I knew when I received a telephone call to ask if the operation had gone smoothly that this would be a caring hotel and we were not disappointed. The room was large with a balcony overlooking the mountains. It was quiet... More

this hotel very much lived up to our expectations gained from reading earlier reviews. If you are looking for a smaller and good value hotel with personal touches, this is for you. If you are looking for a modern 5 star hotel with 3 pools etc etc, the go elsewhere and pay 3x as much. It is actually quite well... More

Echo all the positive views. We got a good deal via Expedia and thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would have stayed longer if we could. Spotlessly clean and great gardens, facilities etc. Very good service and a lovely rest. Only 20 mins walk to centre also. Make sure if driving you work your route out as its a bit tricky... More
