It would not be possible to over-exaggerate the pleasure of staying here - firstly, the staff are very efficient, friendly and helpful. The Quintinha itself is beautifully set in peaceful gardens, and the rooms are large, with a good range of facilities, and spotlessly clean and bright. Breakfasts have a huge changing array of fresh fruit, cheeses, cereals etc plus... More

A delightful alternative to big, impersonal, modern hotels. This is built in the gardens of the original house, so is modern and has all the necessary amenities, but small enough to have the feel of staying with friends - I believe there are 40 rooms? The bedrooms are very large, with a slightly separated sitting area, and the beds are... More

This is a charming small hotel (42 rooms) in an urban setting with characterful and well designed small areas of gardens surrounding it. Set on a hill, as everything in Madeira is, it is a 15 min brisk walk down to the start of the old town and a 25 min wander back up which is quite a slog but... More

There's really little to add to the excellent reviews already posted - but I'll try! A beautiful, intimate hotel, set in lush gardens (which could do with just a little TLC!) with excellent facilities - swimming in January has to be a first for us both. Lovely room with luxurious bathroom, interesting 'nooks and crannies' throughout the hotel, furnished with... More

We enjoyed our stay at Quintinha Sao Joao very much, just walking through the public areas was a joy. The Christmas decorations were so tasteful, and gradually throughout our two week stay these were replaced with wonderful flower arrangements.The furnishings, wall hangings and paintings were interesting and well displayed. The gardens were full of interesting plants, but it took us... More

My wife and I stayed at the Quintinha Sao Joao hotel at the end of October 2015. On our arrival, we were given a personal welcome by a very nice young lady on the reception desk who showed us to our room.
