We have just returned to UK after 5 lovely nights in the Quininha Sao Joao. The staff in the Hotel were all really nice and friendly and genuinely wanted to help and make you feel welcome. The Hotel has lovely big rooms that were very well appointed. We had a room with a balcony on the first floor that was... More

The Quintinha São João is a family owned hotel and all the staff seem part of that family. They are very friendly and personable and will do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your stay at the hotel. The rooms and facilities are excellent and reasonably priced as are the various menus that they offer through the week with... More

We have just spent three very enjoyable nights at the Quintinha São João in the hills just above Funchal. The historic building has been turned into an elegant, attractive and extremely comfortable hotel with large well appointed rooms looking out over gardens. Sadly, the latter are not quite what they must have been when land was sold off for other... More

The hotel is situated approximately 15-20 minutes above the centre of Funchal. The incline of the streets is quite steep so people with walking difficulties would not find the walk easy. However there are plenty of taxis and the hotel does provide a courtesy bus a couple of times a day. The hotel is in lovely grounds in a quiet... More

We spent a week at Quintinha Sao Joao in late January 2015 on our first visit to the beautiful island of Madeira. Apart from asking that they replace the fancy, slightly daunting, little coffee machine in the room costing one euro a cup to the more normal free kettle, tea bags etc. we have nothing but praise for this hotel....

We stayed for a week on a Secret Escapes deal which was half board. We were met by very friendly staff and taken up to our room. This was a standard double with king size double bed, easy chair, settee, desk and dressing table. We were on the second floor and so had a balcony with chairs and a table,... More

All the good things said about this hotel are true. Staff are fantastic, always smiling, and making you feel at home. After 2 hours in the hotel you feel completely at home. Cannot remember a cleaner hotel in 40 years of travelling twice a month. So clean you actually notice it. Loved it
