The hotel is a little way out of the centre of town - far enough to get away from the hustle and bustle but not too far to walk. The hotel and grounds are quiet and peaceful. The rooms are comfortable - ours had a small living room area with settee and table as well as the bedroom area. The... More

From the moment you step into the hotel, the relaxed ambiance of the place welcomes you. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful,and giving wonderful service.

This is a quiet and relaxing hotel situated in the suburbs of Funchal about 30 minutes from the airport and within easy reach of the motorway. There is a shuttle bus into the centre of Funchal if needed and an underground car park. The calm and welcoming atmosphere can be felt as soon as you enter the hotel. Our large... More

Both times, we had really nice rooms, and appreciated the very quiet location and efficient and very friendly staff. The Quintinha is very well equipped with swimming pool and spa, also a pleasant garden with overlooking restaurant, which... More

My wife and I were impressed by the helpful and friendly hotel staff and we were pleased with our comfortable room with balcony.

Just returned from our stay at this hotel... Cannot fault the kind staff and the hotel was certainly very nice too. The only areas that people need to be aware of are that the hotel is situated approximately 3/4 of a mile up hill from the main town of Funchal, now we quite enjoyed the walk after eating in Funchal...
