We stayed at the Quinta Splendida for a week in September. The hotel was terrific as was our room, which had a downstairs area and the bedroom upstairs, which was very cool and breezy. The staff was excellent (and very bi- or tri- lingual!) and very helpful. The gardens were the highlight as they are very lovely and among the... More

We visited for 11 days mid January. Worth using a pre-booked taxi service. Good reception. Accommodation is mainly set back around 3 sides of the large heated swimming pool, with well kept gardens giving privacy, The whole site is on a quite a steep hill, and anyone with mobility problems might find some difficulties. Excellent one bedroom flat with separate... More

Beautiful garden setting which is very calming. We had a basic garden room which suited us fine and no HB meant more flexibility and choice. The gourmet restaurant, La Perla, was excellent, but not open every night. Just a 6 day break after Christmas but it seemed longer. Fixed up 2 excellent day trips - the East Coast tour was... More

We were booked in in January 2016 for a relaxing holiday. When we got there we were suffering from very bad head colds and it was raining cats and dog. Our room was an apartment and we were self catering, but there was more space than we needed. Very large double bed tables and chairs and on the balcony as... More

The Splendida is a lovely hotel/apartment complex set in beautiful gardens with views out over the Atlantic and the Desertas Islands. The layout of the complex in the gardens makes the hotel seem even quieter and more tranquil that it already is. The rooms are dated (early-mid 90s at a guess), but are in good, clean condition and the housekeepers... More

Quinta Splendida is the perfect getaway from the stress of everyday life. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful botanical garden in which you can wander off and enjoy the peace and quiet. It has an unheated outdoor pool which I assume is enjoyable in the hot summertime, but was not much of an asset in November, when our visit... More

We had a one bedroom apartment with amazing sea views as requested. Our accommodation was spacious and very comfortable if a little dated. A balcony ran the full length of the apartment having space for dining table and two loungers with space to spare! The kitchen, while adequate could have been better equipped but was fine for out needs self... More

We chose the Quinta Splendida because of the reviews. These indicated there might be a lot of elderly German guests, and there were (with quite a few Dutch and British retirees too), but so what - it made for a quiet and civilised place. Ditto the reviews highlighted the excellent staff, large pool, beautiful gardens and comfortable rooms - all... More

The landscaped setting of the complex is amazing. Bedrooms are scattered off pathways throughout it with the occasional larger building. There is almost a Hobbit-like feel to the place and some of the buildings. The pool is quite large and there are two restaurants, although they are pricey, but the town has some good alternatives. There is a day time... More
