The staff were always friendly and helpfull. The rooms were excellent and kept very clean by excellent service. We paid the extra for a panoramic view and that is exactly what we got, from an excellent private balcony. The eat as much as you want buffet breakfast was very good. A huge sellection of both hot and cold foods. Plenty... 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

This elegant hotel is located on the hill overlooking Funchal and the harbour. The view from the restaurant terrace and some of the rooms is beautiful at every time of day. Our standard room was comfortable and very clean. The service left nothing to be desired. The staff were very polite and professional. The breakfast buffet was good and you... More

My husband and I spent there one week. This hotel is the colonial-style and has very beautiful views of the ocean and whole Funchal. It has two pools-inside and outside. In December it was too cold to use outside pool. Our room was big, clean and comfortable. The staff was pleasant. In the hotel they have free shuttle bus to... More

This was our first time in Madeira and this hotel certainly did not live up to previous reviews from other patrons. We did not book directly with them and feel that this played a role in the way we were treated. We had arranged to have a van pick us up at airport since there were 2 couples. The driver... More

Be careful when booking this hotel as we were moved without reference to us to another hotel in the group. This was miles away up the mountain and we needed to book our transfers into Funchal daily losing hours from our holiday. The hotel that we were dumped into did not have the views of Funchal that we had carefully... More

Be very careful if you want to stay at this hotel, a confirmed booking means nothing to them and the word customer stands for someone you can arrogantly dismiss and screw over.We had a confirmed reservation for three months and finally a few weeks before we were due to arrive they told us they were overbooked and we were being...

The Hotel is lovely. We had a room with panoramic views of Funchal and at nights its lovely. The indoor pool is heated and also goes outside which is lovely. The reception area is huge, comfy, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was a good selection too! It is definitely worth the 5 stars. Its a 30 minute walk into Funchal but taxi's... More
