This is a lovely traditional style hotel. It's hidden away amongst all the larger hotels and is set amongst beautiful surrounding trees and plants. It is run by friendly and helpful people who are always pleased to help. The rooms are bright and airy with dark wood traditional furnishings. The larger or our two rooms had air conditioning, a large... More

What a surprise when we ventured through the gates of The Vila Vicencia to discover the wonderful gardens and the Villas that were infront of us. The owner could not have been more helpful and she took us to our room, which she thought we would agree was the best! She was not joking, it was like an apartment so... More

Beautiful villa, in a great location, although there are hotels around you, you really wouldn't know. It's so laid back you can't help but relax. I would highly recommend this oasis. There is also a great restaurant next door, friendly staff who look after you and excellent food.

Absolutely lovely little hideaway. The room was immaculate and modernly decorated. The bathroom was the same. Lots of storage space in the lovely period furniture, but no safe in the room, and the safe at reception is not big enough for a laptop. I think we were expecting a little more 'self catering' than a kettle, two mugs and two... More

Stayed here for one week mid July this year and really enjoyed the experience. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean. We had a room with balcony and sitting room and it was perfect for the two of us. There was a wee fridge for storing water and fruit (ok, yes, wine too). Two single beds pushed together but that was... More

Stayed between 9th - 16th June. Really ideal place, a quiet and peaceful retreat and located within easy walking distance of Funchal town centre or bus stops. Lido area just around the corner and plenty of good restaurants nearby. We had room 1, tucked away in the corner next to the pool. we plan to return to Maderia in a... More

We were so surprised when we walked through the gate to find such a charming little hideaway. Three villas in a lovely garden with a small pool and good quality pool furniture. The owner lives on the property and it is obvious that she takes a great pride in her garden and accommodation. We had a lovely modern room but... More

We have just returned from this lovely little hotel shut away behind the green metal gate. Located in the Lido area of Funchal, close to local shops, restaurants etc. We chose this hotel because it is one of Thomson's 'small and friendly' and it certainly didn't disappoint on that score. Although surrounded by hotels, restaurants etc, once inside the gate... More

Hidden behind a locked gate this little oasis was delightful. It was clean, comfortable and the owner and her staff very friendly. Breakfast was simple but there were choices. Cereal, cheese, meats, toast, even egg and bacon and a lovely cake each morning. Drinks were available during the day on an "honesty" system if you wanted them. There is a... More

In 2013 we went to this Quinta for a week and it was wonderful. So we booked for 2weeks in 2014-same dates, same room. What a difference a year makes!! When we arrived we were told we could not have the same room despite reassuring us by email that it would be OK. So we were given a different room... More
