It was our first trip to Madeira which was made so special by this wonderful hotel and its staff. From start to finish it is difficult to find fault. Our room was a junior suite, spacious, beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable with views over the garden. The location is ideal, a 20 minute walk into Funchal center and taxi's readily...

What a gorgeous hotel this is! beautifully furnished and a large bedroom overlooking the gardens. The room has a separate sitting area also a large bathroom with nice white dressing gowns provided. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and very well run. The breakfast was amazing with pretty much everything you could possibly want to eat ...they even provided Champagne!... More

Going back to the Quintinia is just wonderful. It felt like going back home. The welcome was great and the staff were all so helpful and friendly. This time we took my very elderly Mum, who is in a wheelchair. She was not very well a couple of times and the staff were so helpful, even off duty staff offering... More

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

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
