Our holiday was bought from Inspired Luxury Escapes at a cost of £528 each, half-board, flying with Easyjet, and transfers were included. The hotel is approx. 25 minutes from the airport. Our room was lovely....large, airey, comfortable & clean, and a decent sized balcony, overlooking the gardens. The bathroom was very good, with an excellent, powerful shower. The bed was... More

Everything the reviews say is true. We were in the lowest category room but it was perfect for our needs, comfortable and clean and larger than some suites we have stayed in. The staff are all very friendly and professional and as the hotel is small quickly get to know you. There is a comprehensive breakfast buffet with freshly cooked... More

One of the best hotels we have stayed in. The room was very large, furnished to a high standard & kept immaculately clean. We were half board & thought the food at breakfast & dinner was excellent quality and with a good selection. The whole hotel is lovely, the gardens are not huge but very pretty. The bar & public...

Ideally situated for Funchal town but quiet and relaxing setting. Lots of places to sit and relax around public areas. Gardens well kept and pleasant to stroll around. Spa rooms very good with sauna steam room and jacuzzi . Zen massage ideal after strenuous walking up mountains and along levadas! Breakfasts - good choice. Staff very helpful especially the fluent...

Our first to Madeira - we would judge the island not suitable for the elderly. It is a mountain in the sea!! That said, this hotel mostly away from the high rise hotels except for the Four View nearby is very comfortable, quiet and well appointed with extremely helpful staff. The grounds are quiet and peaceful with an outside pool... More

I stayed here in February for a week with a female friend. Our experience could not have been nicer. The hotel has everything for the discerning traveller, and more. It has an intimate feel, only 40 rooms, as a previous reviewer said, 'a country house' style. Much nicer than the huge ugly modern hotels on the sea front. We were... More

If you are looking for the nearest thing to a country house hotel in town, this is it. Other reviewers have already said it all, but worth repeating: welcoming staff, spacious rooms, an oasis of calm, fantastic breakfast buffet, beautiful gardens, pleasant bar and terrace for afternoon tea. All good. Looking forward to going again.

This was our first visit to Madeira although friends have been extolling its wonders for sometime. We were fortunate in choosing the Quintinha Sao Joao which met our needs perfectly. Close to the centre of Funchal and yet set in a little haven, enclosed in its own beautiful gardens. From the moment we stepped through the door we received a... More

We chose this hotel for our first trip to madeira after reading the swathe of positive reviews on this and other sites. They were not wrong!

This hotel has character and old style charm and a loyal staff who you will see every time you visit and who will remember you from one visit to the next.
