“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Having visited Madeira quite a few times we found this hotel to be well situated as it is around half way between the busy centre of Funchal and the Lido. There are plenty of local buses should you find the walking difficult as it is quite hilly but buses take you up the hill. Reception is recently refurbished very pleasant. We had a twin garden view room, shower room modern and plenty hot water day & night also very good hairdryer, room slightly dated and the walls and doors are not very sound proofed. But pleasant hotel with buffet breakfast and dinner did not experience any problem with getting table. Plenty choice and buffet well kept and replenished. I would have liked to get either a teapot to put my tea in or a mug as the teacups are very small. Good sized swimming pool and sun loungers available on the premises. Slightly disappointed that only snack available is cheese & ham toast during the day if you are just relaxing at the pool. Would grade this hotel a 3+ grade for the room but it does have a spa & gym so possibly why graded 4 star.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stayed 11 nights mid July 2014 and have to say the hotel had no faults except the bar service was less than adequate for a 4 star hotel. Some people waited 40 minutes for a drink and ended up walking off. The dining room was good but when tables were reserved it proved difficult to get a table. The food was standard buffet style and nothing to write home about. The staff were friendly however. The room we stayed in (5th floor) was ok but needed modernising however the view was great from our balcony. Pool area was good especially the spa/jacuzzi pool. Reception staff were efficient and reception had plenty of comfy chairs/settees. The entertainment - well, we would suggest going out for the evening as it was pretty dire unless of course you like to watch parrots riding bicycles! Please be aware of the free drink invitation as it is a timeshare selling exercise for the Enotel group. It sounds like we are full of moans and groans when in fact we enjoyed our stay in Madeira! Would we stay at this hotel again - not sure! It could be a great hotel with a few changes.

Not having been to Madeira before we were expectant of a good time. Generally this was what we had despite a Slow reception and bar service due to only one receptionist/bar person on for the main, and seemed to be the normal for these areas. The restaurant we believe was slightly small for the number of patrons but waiting staff were quick and efficient. Food service a little mundane and slow replacement but generally well prepared and presented. Staff were friendly and efficient but possibly slightly reduced in numbers due to the time of year we arrived. The Room we were given was good, clean with good maid service, However the balcony being more or less non existent with two sliding doors that opened up to about a foot in balcony clearance from the room but did have a good sea and harbour view over the town and close buildings.

Room Tip: Lots of walking but very Hilly, Try the Red or Yellow bus tours to see the general area. June is Sa...

This hotel has it all. 20 minute drive from airport and about 10 minute drive to the old part of Funchal.
Free Internet
Free Breakfast
Free parking
Yay!
They also have live shows in the evening for entertainment. The pools are beautiful even though I'm not a pool person these are stunning. One outdoor and one semi outdoor that's heated. The price as well was an incredible value. I would recommend this place to friends and family and I would stay here again next time I'm in Madeira.

Called at Madeira before on cruises and not had chance to see the area properly so booked the enotel Quinta do sol.
We arrived late an was greeted reception politely and informatively, dropped the bags of and went for the first evening meal, the restaurant staff greeted us and informed us about the informal process in the restaurant.
Next day got to see the room properly with a sea view which was not booked so bonus, the hotel was virtually empty for the week but well kept with a full compliment of staff two beautiful pools.
Meals were good with a choice for all bar prices were acceptable, so all things considered it was a great week in the Quinta do sol and would certainly go again.

Stayed at this hotel at the end of May reception and piano bar staff very efficient and friendly, the the exception being in the restaurant where no acknowledgement was given on arrival. The staff seemed to be more interested in getting the guests out as soon as possible and if one could get any help from certain male waiters one would be lucky, Some customer relations needed.At dinner the only choice of drink was wine or bottled water, no tea or coffee even though the machines were used at breakfast.Evening entertainment was not thrilling. Hotel convenient to the local facilities with a bus stop right outside and some decent watering places within a short walk.
