“nice stay in funchal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The Enotel Quinta do sol is a very nice adults only hotel within 25 to 30 mins walking distance of the centre of Funchal and 25mins walk to the Lido coastal walk.
It is a very clean and friendly hotel, where the staff are very accommodating and welcoming.
The bar in the evening was very relaxing and the entertainment on Wednesday and Friday was very good.
I would have given the hotel 4* except for the evening meal. The problem was 2 fold, there was a lack of organisation regarding the reserving of tables for some guests making it difficult for other guests to get a table and having to return later. Secondly in comparison to other 4* hotels we have stayed in, the food although well presented was lacking in variety. Out of the 7 nights we stayed we had 5 good meals and 2 disappointing meals

Room Tip: we chose a sea view room,but select one with a balcony,this was not an option with the travel agent...

Arriving at our hotel in funchal we were shown to our lovely room on the 6th floor which had wonderful views over the sea, with the harbour in the distance and hills to our left.At night these views became alive with thousands of lights from the houses nestled in the hillside, harbour lights and the glow of Funchal town. I can only describe our hotel as 7 Star not 4 Star as advertised, from the professional friendly staff who were all without exception helpful and extremely accomodating, the restaurant ran like clockwork offering a super choice of food at all times. All the hotel staff were so friendly, we all felt very special and when the management found out we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, champagne and flowers were presented to us at lunchime, a big thanks to hotel director Monica for this, it was great. A few other names to mention, the singing Carlos behind the bar and the lovely, bubbly receptionist Marina, too many other excellent staff to mention.
So location, facilities and the staff all made our stay at the Quinta do So in Funchal truly enjoyable and fitting for our special occasion thanks to you all.

Room Tip: Get the 6th floor with sea view, great

This hotel may not be very trendy or not very flashy but it is simply a plain good one. Service at the reception is attentive although not very warm.The hotel is well situated on the outskirts of the town but still within walking distance of the historical centre. Rooms are spacious with a very large cupboard for all the clothing you want. At breakfast you get all you need. The warm food of the evening dinner has its ups and downs but is always very acceptable. Wines are good and not expensive. The service in the dining room is very attentive and gentle. We didn't regret our choice at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an even number on the sunrise side, they have a nice balcony and a good view on...

stayed here 1 week in january, very pleasantly supprised..lovely view from our high floor very clean room. food was good, our favourite being breakfast time what lovely breads, we always found something in the evening and as we went with saga loved having coffee later in the lounge areas..the bar man was brilliant and very pleasant.. all staff go the extra mile.. the only down side was noise from dogs barking close to hotel middle of night,the pool was to cold to use at this time, and the heated one is not private enough for us ,looks great but would feel like we were on display... the traffic noise and fumes around funchel itself very bad.. that aside we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday

Room Tip: high floor for veiw

Just up the road from Reids, this hotel gives a 20 minute walk to Funchal and the chance to look at stuff you might otherwise might not make the effort to see, eg Catherina Gardens, the Presidential gardens, and a chance to see coffee stops favoured by locals and those in the know.

The hotel is very well presented with interested staff and clean nicely designed spacious rooms. We thought the restaurant area was a bit small for the numbers expected and some bits became rather congested. The food was unadventurous but perfectly acceptable.
Look out for the nice pool, half indoors and half out with a canopy, v. Good for the time of our visit. Good size outdoor pool too

Room Tip: Front overlooks sea and route to city, back looks onto a park

Nothing negative to say about the hotel. Staff couldn't possibly be friendlier. Diner and breakfast is great. My compliments to the staff, they really made me feel welcome.
Perfect hotel for a perfect holiday.

Our first time in Madeira and a lovely surprise when we entered our hotel. The friendliness of all the staff, especially Louisa on the reception desk, who was always smiling and very helpful with directions, trips available etc: The room was very comfortable with a sea view and was kept exceptionally clean. The lounges were many and very comfortable. The food was excellent with a good choice both at breakfast and dinner. The salads were to die for, everything fresh every day and I must say that this hotel in 'Portugal' knows how to cook and prepare their vegetables properly, as we have been to mainland hotels and the variety of vegetables were always minimal and always in a sauce, so well done Enotel!! Hugo and Andreas, two of the waiters, were always welcoming and very friendly and nothing was too much for them. Overall we had a fantastic week at this hotel and it is somewhere we would return to without hesitation.

Room Tip: choose a sea view room although a little extra
