I should have written this review back in February/March but forgot - must be an age thing.
If you are contemplating going to Funchal, and you do not mind a bit of exercise (or getting buses/taxis), then this hotel is a MUST.
A boutique hotel but with the service and quality you would expect for a larger, luxury brand hotel.
The hotel manager was a god send - helped us out no end when we hit problems with our flight home.
The room was lovely, very clean and wonderfully serviced each day.
Our evening meals were wonderfully cooked and presented.
I would be very surprised if we returned to Funchal (been there, done that - and it's a whole big world out there), but if we ever did, then I would return to The Quinta Mirabela.
