We stayed here for 2 weeks in October - it was a lovely hotel and our hotel room was very nice - we had moved for the first room we were given because the noise from the main road was quite disturbing but found the second room very quiet being that bit away from the road. The staff were attentive... More

We had an unfortunate start to our holiday when we couldn't land on Madeira and were diverted to Tenerife for the night. The next morning was quite traumatic for various reasons. When we finally reached the hotel our welcome was fabulous. We immediately felt at home, and the rest of our holiday was great. The food was delicious (on the... More

My partner and I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We were half board and enjoyed all our meals there. However if you are planning to only dine there a few nights, make sure you book the Madeira night on a Friday. It was superb! We also really enjoyed the Masterchef night too which was... More

Our first trip to Madeira and, a great hotel for first impression. Lovely staff and pianists. On a steep hill which is good for exercise or a pain dependent on your disposition! Courtesy bus is available as are taxis. Underground private car park useful. Covered swimming pool as well as an outdoor one in lovely mature gardens. Food was very... More

We all had a great time at Quintinha Sao Joao. I travelled with my family and my parents. We arrived late and a bit tired but felt straight at home and very welcomed from the moment we booked in. As mentioned in previous reviews the place is excellent because of the beautiful building/ furniture but mainly because of its very... More

Just stayed for one week in this hotel, Very nice place, location is not in the best area, and the hotel does seem a little hemmed in by other buildings, however once inside the gardens are nice and quiet and the hotel is the same. I stayed in a junior suite which was a hallway, a basic lounge and a... More

We stayed here end of October. The hotel is fabulous and the price of our stay was very reasonable! Rooms are very large and are spotless. It was about 10 mins from town which was perfect. The pools and bars were a plus and we used these regularly. We didn't want to come home and we have already recommended this... More

A separate seating area with desk, tv and sofa with extra armchair. Plenty of storage and good sized balcony overlooking garden. The decor in all the rooms along with the fab flower arrangements...

The Sao Joao is difficult to pigeon hole but I would describe it as a colonial house that has been sympathetically converted to a hotel (43 rooms/suites) and modernised in a way that you don't even notice we had a standard room with a balcony (2nd floor) and it was very comfortable, if I was being very picky I would...
