The Sao Joao is difficult to pigeon hole but I would describe it as a colonial house that has been sympathetically converted to a hotel (43 rooms/suites) and modernised in a way that you don't even notice we had a standard room with a balcony (2nd floor) and it was very comfortable, if I was being very picky I would...

DO NOT VISIT THIS HOTEL. Because if you do, you will never want to go home again. The hotel is perfect for a restful holiday. The rooms and public areas are all beautifully appointed, and it is always very quiet, even though it is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Funchal. The best aspect however is the... More

The Quinta was charming. We had a large room with a good sized seating area, mini bar and large very comfortable bed. The whole place was very clean and we were greeted with smiles from all the staff. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and included cooked options too. We had three evening meals at the Quinta, the... More

We returned after a break of 10 years and found it just as welcoming with lots of familiar faces. All the staff were very helpful and the Receptionists looked after us very well as did the bar staff!! Happy hour was delightful.

Just back from another holiday in Madeira. We normally stay in the resort hotels to the west of Funchal, but fancied a change and something a little nearer town, QSJ sounded just the place. When we arrived we had a tour of the hotel and facilities, which was a lovely personal touch. What happened next was just wonderful.....upgraded to a... More

We had a lovely week's stay. Used all the facilities. Breakfast spread is amazing. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Room was spacious and modern and hotel in general is light with relaxing communal areas. We agree with all their claims on their website!

There are many comments about the star rating of this hotel on Trip Advisor. While this is a lovely hotel with good service and facilities, please don't expect the equivalent of a UK 5* hotel. That said, it is a very relaxing environment and guests are well looked after. The service from staff was good as were the facilities and... More

This hotel is great. From my first e mail contact nothing was too much trouble. The room we had on the third floor was huge with a separate lounge and a large balcony.

We have just spent the past 7 days at this hotel, mainly based on the good reviews on Trip advisor which we use frequently. But we should have took more notice of the occasional reviews that didn't rate this hotel so highly. This, in our opinion is not a 5 star hotel, its 4 star. There are a number of... More
