We made the mistake of booking here for 9 days at the end of March We are both 80 yrs old and it certainly is not the place for the more elderly. Although clean and well run there are none of the comforts that one comes to expect of more upmarket properties. The apartments could do with an update-the only... More

Peaceful, restful, beautiful with plenty of spots to sit and sunbathe. The rooms are set round the hillside with views over the sea towards the Ills Desertas. The food was buffet style unless you visited one of the Ale Carte restaurants Food was good.

To put this review in context I will mention that we are a retired couple in our 60s and our aim in this trip was to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the life of the country. We are not really 'beach sunbathing' people but prefer to seek out the parts where ordinary people are living their normal lives. Having... More

Quinta Splendida certainly lived up to its name. The gardens are wonderful. Our studio was comfortable and was much more spacious than we dared hope for, with a separate sitting area as well as the sleeping space and the kitchenette. The en-suite shower room was a good size too. we were on a "room only" deal. We chose to eat... More

From the time that was checked in with the greatest receptionist of all time, Marcio, we knew that our stay would be absolutely Splendid. Fantastic location, beautiful grounds, excellent customer service. We visited Madeira 3 years ago and stayed in the Lido area. For the first few days in Canico, we wondered whether we should have done that again, or... More

Quinta Splendida is a beautiful hotel with a spectacular botanical garden. The room (appartment) on the eastern side was nice and spacious. Cleanness ok: cleaning and towel-change daily. Need for improvement: stairs down to pool difficult for elderly people, access to pool and spa from upper part should be more disabled-friendly. No wifi in rooms: there is a wifi called... More

We stayed in a studio room that had a kitchenette with a pleasant outlook - room 1100 (or 100 on the door). Good points: The gardens were very nice and picturesque - definitely a plus point We liked the room and the ability to cook our own food. The room itself had plenty of space with a lounge area where... More
