We stayed at this stylish Quinta twice (once in 2009, once in 2012) and both stays were very good. The drive up there is a bit of a tortuous path (be prepared for some searching), but once you're there you will be warmly greeted by the friendly staff. The rooms are clean, spacious and some offer a magnificent view on... More

Amazing view, very clean and lovely rooms, friendly and nice staff, fantastic mountain air, unforgettable experience. If you ask about Madeira the answer should be Quinta do Alto de Sao Joao. Special Thanks for a super rest!

Great traditional Madeiran manor hotel. The location in the countryside is quiet, relaxing and calm as well as extremely picturesque, with the wonderful views on the ocean and the surrounding mountains. The staff is friendly and keep the hotel, the rooms and the gardens in clean and well maintained condition. Speaking of the gadens, the hotel has its own fruit... More

Great situation, Almost in the clouds above Ponto do Sol. The rooms are nice and nicer still I was upgraded to an even nicer room with a hob and microwave because the cook was ill. You must have your own transport to get to this hotel, It's an old place and is decorated with many interesting items and the garden... More

The Manager Richard and his wife (new this Spring to the Quinta) made us very welcome when we arrived at the Quinta way up in the hills of Madeira. They rustled up something for us to eat whilst our rooms were made ready and we loved the location - views of the Atlantic from the bedrooms, a quiet village and... More

I was staying here in August 2009. Just amazing place - astounding view from windows, better ask for a higher floor for better view. The room that we had had a nice small balcony to the right deep below was ocean to the left higher mountains. The air was super fresh during the nights, so despite the room had no... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel after seeing it featured on the 'Madeira-island .com' website where it is categorised as 5-stars and described as 'a rural stately home' When we arrived at the hotel it was dark,and not wishing to face the rather tortuous journey back to Ponta do Sol, we decided to eat in the hotel.

An excellent hotel with a very friendly staff. It's a rural hotel, what means vegetables and fruit from the garden of the hotel. Rural means also a quiet place. The view from the hotel to the coast was beatiful. We hope to come back in this quinta.
