A very enjoyable relaxing sejour at the end of July 2015. Hotel is situated in the hills with a beautiful garden, a quiet location. For going in Funchal, 20-25 min walking or 5-7 min with the taxi ( which is cheap, around 6 euro). The room was spacious, clean, very confortable and the "balcony" ( the room was at groundfloor)...

Not the standard you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Breakfast staff were attentive and friendly but that's where it ended. There was never any staff at the pool bar, you had to ring for service. The receptionist rarely lifted there head when you entered the hotel. The walk to the main town was about 25 min walk down... More

This is a really difficult hotel to review for me. We had a fabulous holiday, but several things could have made it even better, 4 of which should be standard in a 5 star hotel. Where to start; The hotel is situated up a steep hill, approx. 30 minutes walk from any restaurants, shops etc, it is nestled amongst a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are not flashy but are very comfortable, we slept well and enjoyed the balcony. The breakfast was slightly different each day with lots of tasty choices. We had two evening meals in the restaurant and they were good. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We spent each afternoon after walking at... More

Our first visit to Madeira and we split our stay between this hotel and Reid's, booked through BA holidays who rate both locations as 5*. Reids fits the 5* rating but this hotel is at very best 4*. No porter or help available to carry bags up flight of steps to reception. The lady receptionist kindly carried the bags down... More

We have just spent a lovely week at this hotel. We rang the travel agent on the tuesday asking him for somewhere warmer than here, he suggested this and we went 4 days later. We said we were looking for a boutique hotel and were a bit worried before arriving that it might be a bit big at 71 rooms... More

The Quinta Das Vistas Palace Gardens in Funchal is quite simply the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. It is NOT as described in its literature, nor in the review on Sovereign Luxury Holidays brochure. It is graded as a 5* Gold Standard hotel, that is an absolute joke! Nothing could be further from the truth. When we arrived... More
