“splendid retreat nearby the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A little bit worried because of the city centre and noisy roads we arrived at the hotel. What a delight full heaven. Small hotel with warm staff, great rooms with view off the great garden. Little disappointed about the temperature of the pool water (they say heated, they tell you 25 degrees but they measure 22-23). Just a few degrees hotter it would be of better use also in the spring months. Architecure and interior design gave a Zen feeling. Breakfast fresh products, good choices and they even opened earlyer so we could eat before flying early.
We ate on the premises sometimes lunch or easterdiner. Nearby you find also nice local restaurants. We can fully recommend this hotel for annybody.

Room Tip: if you dont like steps choose the ground floor (you have your own sunchairs). But for the view take...

Immaculate hotel and gardens. Lovely pool area. Friendly, efficient staff. Absolutely super. We have always booked individually, so are nit tied to the hotel restaurant.. Often eat lunch there and obviously breakfast, which is excellent. Lovely library.

Room Tip: Have stayed in both ordinary and superior rooms - perfectly happy with the "ordinary".

Great hotel for relaxing does what it says on the box you won't be disappointed. Only issue we had was we were sold a dinner package for 5 days by Thomson's after initially booking just bed and breakfast. It was every bit as cheap to purchase on the day so don't book in advance.

We stayed here for a week in February. The weather was very mixed but Madeira was ideally suited for a winter break away from the usual touristy destination.

The hotel and every member of its staff were excellent. Their commitment to customer service could not be faulted. Rooms were spotlessly clean. The gardens were so beautiful even in February , indeed we preferred the hotel grounds to the Funchal Botanic gardens

The hotel is about a mile outside the city centre which is walkable but it is a steep hill. There are plenty of buses and taxis available. Also some good restaurants within walking distance.

We wanted a relaxing get away and this hotel was PERFECT! The grounds are beautiful and immaculate. Each room has a view and balcony or porch. Staff was very friendly and hotel was very clean. The only thing we did not really care for was the food in the separate restaurant. The breakfast included with the room was very good though.

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!

Room Tip: We booked an upgrade room and were not disappointed. They are very spacious and well equipped with a...

This hotel has a touch of class, beautiful gardens and is in an ideal situation for a peaceful holiday. The bedrooms were not spacious. We were disappointed by the quality of the food in the restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful and always did their best to make our stay comfortable. A good hotel but never a 5 star.
