“Relaxation heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I was lucky enough to stay here for 2 weeks B&B. This hotel deserves the top spot. The staff are amazing, grounds superb and the swimming pool area is the perfect place to relax.
I ordered a decaf coffee the first morning for breakfast and for the rest of the fortnight I was asked if I would like one each morning - fantastic service!
The highlight has to be feeding Columbo the tortoise!

If I had to find fault it would be that the restaurant is a tad pricey - lunch around 40 euros and dinner was around 110 without dessert but with a decent bottle of wine. We had lunch a number of times as it was good and it saved moving. We would have had dinner more often if the price had been closer to those in town.
Additionally the courtesy bus only runs Monday to Friday, it would be useful if it ran on Saturday and Sunday too. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel and indeed hope to do so once the works have been finished at the sea front.

With regards to location we walked into town each day, often for lunch and then later for dinner. It would take about 20 minutes to get to the town or 30 to get to the old town. We would get the courtesy bus back after lunch and a taxi after dinner (< 6 euros from town, < 8 from old town)

Room Tip: We had room 214 which had foliage along the balcony making it very private (this is the same for 215...

We booked this hotel because it was Number 1 on trip advisor, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Everything about the hotel was excellent. The half board option was superb and every evening meal we had was better than you would expect, the breakfast was good especially if you like eggs. Gardens and pool area were spotless, and you could get a sunbed by the pool at any time of the day even though the hotel was full (could do with a few more parasols though). The small bar was excellent as was the occasional entertainment, the bar would have benefitted from an adjacent outside seating area. All said this hotel deserves its TA rating and we will certainly return in the near future. The hotel is high up in Funchal, which suited me and a 5 to 6 Euro taxi ride from the main resort area, although you can walk if you like hills.

Quinta Jardins do lago is one of the best hotels that my family and I have stayed at (and we are exigent!). This is a charming hotel and contributes to make your holiday and your travel to Madeira unforgettable. The staff very kind, friendly and helpful, the quiet and superb gardens, the pool, the jacuzzi, the restaurant (don't miss it!), the bistro in the swimming pool, the breakfast, the room... Everything was excellent.

My husband and I have just had our third holiday at this wonderful hotel. Just walking through the door lifts my spirits and I always feel that I am visiting a friend’s house rather than an hotel. To our delight we were upgraded to a junior suite – absolute heaven! And having tea and coffee making facilities made it even better! Once again everything was perfect, the exquisite grounds (where I fed my old friend Colombo) and incredible swimming pool are a joy. The a la carte menu for dinner is superb and breakfast is quite simply one of the best hotel breakfasts you could wish for. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. The important thing for my wife and I is that we come away rested, no one could fail to fail to relax in such as beautiful tranquil place.

just returned from a 10 day stay and it was excellent. The Hotel is superb, fantastic gardens and a real tranquil oasis in Funchal. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful ,Food varied and tasty - we stayed half board and were not disappointed. We hope to return again as this is a hotel you would want to come back to.

One of the best hotels that my wife and I have stayed at. Everything is exceptional and I find it difficult to add to the many fulsome comments already made. Suffice to say that if you value excellent service,good food and peaceful surroundings this is the place for you.

On our arrival the receptionist made us very welcome and immediately showed us to our lovely ground floor bedroom with terrace overlooking the garden. Breakfasts outside were a real highlight with a superb range of different fruits, cold and hot buffet and eggs freshly cooked anyway you liked.Evening meals in the more formal dining room were also excellent, if a little expensive.
The hotel is very traditional in style, light and airy and I imagine nice and cool in very hot weather.
The gardens are really beautiful and the pool area well designed for sunbathing or swimming.
This is a hotel to which we would definitely consider returning, the only downside being that it is about 30mins walk up a steep hill from tthe centre of Funchal, some of the way without pavements, so it is not for the faint-hearted or infirm.However the hotel provides a courtesy vehicle several times a day (except weekends) which can be booked in advance provided you know when you wish to return. All the staff were extremely courteous and helpful, and we felt that nothing was really too much trouble.

Room Tip: We had a garden facing room on the ground floor, which was lovely. We cannot really comment on the o...
