We had lunch at the outdoor cafe. The desserts were excellent ( home made cakes) and great soup but the toasties were mediocre. I had a seafood one but it was just made of formed crabstix! Great view and friendly service and, in fairness, waiter did try and talk me out of the seafood toastie!

Arrived very hot and probably looking disreputable after a long walk. Receptionist was delightful, and quickly checked us in. Our luggage had arrived before us and had been taken up to our room. I was quite worried about this part of our Madeira trip after reading the review posted by dk2822. Can only say we saw that the pool walkway... More

We decided to have our lunch at Quinta do Monte as it looked like a very nice hotel and presumably had good service and food. We were partly wrong. After being ignored for 10-15 minutes after sitting down at the table, the waiter decided to pay us some attention. I could have accepted that if only the place had been... More

Great location, but this is a pretty crummy hotel which does not merit its 5 star status. Except for the rooms in the old manor house, it has been allowed to deterioriate and is now in a state of disrepair. The carpets in the bedroom corridors are stained, the pool ceiling is coming down, and the covered outside walkway is... More

Ideally located for various attractions in Monte. I was staying at the HPB property at Cabo Girao and some other guests had been to Quinta do Monte and recommended it, I looked it up on trip advisor and thought it was worth a look. Easy to find by following the road signs (hang in there, bit round the houses due... More

Terrific location with all communal areas - reception, bar & dining room - excellent. Rooms require some updating with carpets well past their best, plumbing in need of overhaul and wi-fi only available in one corner in reception & bar. Swimming pool is out of the 4th floor along a covered walkway and again in need of an overhaul

To be at "Quinta do Monte" hotel is a very special experience. First, you can enjoy the Funchal Bay view from your room balcony. Just step down to seat in the tropical garden, or be comfortable in one of the romantic, 19th century style seating-rooms. The hotel has got a nice pool - a bit chilly for me- and a... More

Charming staff and a beautiful view. We had a toastie and a beer on the terrace, which was a great find. Cannot comment on the main hotel, as we did not enter. Not cheap, but 20€ covered beers and toasties on a lovely garden. Fantastic setting for lunch though!
