Full sized hair dryer. Good toiletries. Good air conditioning. Balcony with chairs. Turn down service and we were bought fruit every afternoon which was a nice touch.... More

If you want a modern hotel right in the centre of Funchal then this is not the hotel for you! However, if you are looking for a quiet , relaxing and friendly hotel a short walk from town, situated in lovely gardens then this is your hotel. We had a lovely week at the QSJ . The rooms were spacious... More

What a stunning place, fantastic service, wonderful facilities, overall a fabulous hotel. For any couple this is a must place to stay in Funchal. The staff are great, very helpful whenever the need arises. The restaurant be it for breakfast or evening meals is excellent. The whole experience of the week in this hotel was fabulous.

This hotel did not quite come up to the expectations I had from its reviews. We were in Room 207 which was facing towards a quite busy road - when sitting on our balcony there was significant traffic noise - but this was silenced by closing the patio doors. Wouldn't recommend Room 201 which would be right next to the... More

Whilst making every effort possible to ensure your Quintinha and Madeiran holiday experiences are delightful and truly memorable it is naturally disappointing when we do not succeed.
