We visited the hotel at the beginning of April to relax and recharge and the Quinta supplied this in buckets. The architecture and gardens are stunning, so calm and peaceful so you can't help but unwind when you are surrounded by such beauty. We loved the little walk through the gardens for breakfast, but unfortunately the weather wasn't too good during our stay so we only managed to sit outside twice. The food was really gorgeous and fresh with cooked to order eggs, pancakes and porridge as well as a great range on the buffet. The deck bar is a lovely place to relax early evening and enjoy the day's special cocktail during happy hour.
The staff are very impressive, professional and friendly, hitting just the right note in all their dealings with us and other customers.
The only thing I found disappointing was the temperature of the outdoor pool which, although displayed at 21c was icy cold.
The location is great - close enough to stroll into Funchal but far enough away to not be part of the larger complexes along the sea front. There is a great choice of restaurants within 5 minutes of the hotel if you wish or restaurants in Funchal old town provide some great choices.
I would certainly visit again and I've already recommended the Quinta to my friends!
