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!

We spent £90 for ameal for two with water but not wine taken from the chef's choice,not a la carte.It was to be our best meal of outr two week stay. Positive comment: the head waiter and waitresses were friendly and the food was served reasonably promptly. However the restaurant was very cold and this contributed to a rather dreary... More

Went looking for the restaurant in this hotel for lunch. It looked closed but we persisted and was told it was open which indeed it was although empty. The waitress was pleasant enough but it seemed as if they wished we were not there. Waitresses chatting and moving chairs and tables around even stapling cloths to tables obviously preparing for...

I couldn't agree more with Ann B's comments, "A little tired but excellent customer service". After reading some of the negative reviews, we were pleasantly surprised with what we found at the Quinta do Monte and would return tomorrow. Thank you Theresa for your help and enthusiasm, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your charming hotel.

Monte appeared to have fewer eateries than we expected, but slightly off the beaten track was a café in the grounds of a five-star hotel. The snack list on offer was short, but our ham-and-cheese toasties and chicken salad were reasonably priced and perfectly acceptable. It was a quiet spot to enjoy a quiet beer and a sandwich and made... More

The hotel is just per the photos on its web site, yes a little tired, but we would rather have the excellent customer service from their staff than a `boutique` décor hotel. As travellers, we all can do internet research, this is what we did. Quinta do Monte is situated away from the maddening crowd, if you don't want to... More

Funchal unfortunately became a quite dirty and stinky, polluted city. Therefore in my opinion it is lovely to choose a place to stay where you are far from noise and pollution. After a 10 minutes drive you reach Monte, around 600 meters above Funchal, perched on a very steep hill. Entering the property it seems that you enter in a... More

This hotel ls situated up in the hills above Funchal. After a good nights sleep, if you like very firm beds, you'll wake up to the sound of the birds singing. No noises from traffic,nor from the city, nothing. Then you can go down to the restaurant and enjoy a very nice breakfast before heading out. A complementary bus lets... More

Having travelled up in the cable car, we decided to head up the hill to this hotel, attracted by the 5* rating. Unfortunately, this was no more 5* than fly in the air! Stood for 15 minutes waiting for one (very run off his feet) waiter to come back and seat us and provide menus. Gave up, walked back down... More
