“GREAT HOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed in a Premier room with a balcony overlooking the pool, very classy rooms, only downside there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. The hotel is very modern and with only 24 rooms is ideal for a quiet stay. We had 5 out of 10 sunny days, the hotel is quite high up and if it gets cloudy in the mountains you tend to loose the sun, best to go down into the town and stay at the lido for the day or alternatively make us of the fabulous spa at the hotel.

I stayed in the end of september. Hotel is nice, staff very helpful, view of Funchal amazing!
However, keep in mind its a small hotel and it has not all the aspects of a five star hotel.
The restaurant is very good, definitely try it, prices are not more than you would pay in Funchal.
rooms may seem a little dated, but veer clean and well kept.

I only have one little thing i was not happy with and if anybody from the management is reading this please notice: i stayed in room 107, and every morning at about 6am there was a car stopping under our window, supplies I would guess, which woke us up because of the diesel engine noise and loud radio . I would be nice if you instructed the driver not to play radio and turn of the engine while unloading the car.

other than that it was a nice stay.

I recommend this hotel highly for being away from the Funchal hotel quarter, superb hillside views, smallish hotel but with plenty of communal areas and facilities. The staff are amongst the best we've come across. The food is excellent, they do a half board meal deal

Ideal for a quiet relaxing or romantic holiday

We chose this hotel for our Honeymoon on 26-8-13 and the choice was like that of my wife to marry me. Inspired!!

Everything about this hotel was spot on, from the building to the food but especially the staff.

During the flight to Madeira my wife developed toothache, makes a difference from a headache!, this worsened over our first night. The gentleman on reception could not have been more helpful. He phoned his own dentist and made an appointment within the hour for my wife to receive treatment. We were transported by the hotel courtesy bus to the dentists.

Our only regret regarding this hotel is that we did not choose the half board option as the food was of an excellent quality and the service second to none. We did however eat in more than out.

The hotel is near the end of the sledge run and provided an amusing sideshow as a variety of tourists sped by.

Travel into Funchal was provided twice daily by the hotel minibus free of charge though a taxi fare was approximately 10 Euro each way.

The hotel is in no way cramped and provides the perfect getaway for those wanting a peaceful getaway. We will return when we next visit Madeira.

Finally in the departure lounge of the airport my wife, yes she is blonde, discovered that she had left her purse in the room safe. We telephoned the hotel who offered to send it to the airport in a taxi. However our flight was due to depart so the hotel sent it to our address in the U.K.

As the title says Faultless. Thanks to everyone at Quinta Mirabela for making our Honeymoon such a special occasion.

We staid at the Quinta Mirabela for our sumer vacations in August 2013. The best recommendation we can give is that we will definitely return to this outstanding hideaway. The treasure of the calm and stylish small design hotel is the staff: well trained, internationally oriented, decent and perfectly friendly they understand how to respect the guest's need for quietness while helping you quickly and silently with everything you need once you need it. The only thing to improve would be the quality of the mattresses. If you find something that does not meet your requirements or expectations, don't hesitate to let the management know. They are open for advices and criticism. The hotel is professionally run thanks to a change in management a year ago. If you go to the beautiful island of Madeira and you are looking for breathtaking views, good infrastructure, perfect service, good food and a cosy atmosphere, it's the Quinta Mirabela to choose. We can't really wait to return. We came as guests, we will return as friends. Thank you, Paolo and cheers to your staff!

I am writing to say thank you to Paulo and all of your staff at the Quinta Mirabela. We stayed in July from the 6th - 13th and had such an amazing time.

To sum up this hotel in 1 word - "perfect"
The views from the 2 terraces are incredible, the hotel was modern and clean and away from the hustle and bustle of Funchal centre. Watching the toboggan speed down the road whilst stood by the pool was an experience that you would only get at the Quinta Mirabela.

Reception Staff:

Even before we arrived I contacted the reception staff who helped to arrange flowers for our room as a surprise for my partner and they were so nice and polite in dealing with my questions. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and the whole week we were there they were always smiling, were always willing to help and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Restaurant :

The chef's deserve a special mention as all the food we had was delicious especially the Madeira night on the terrace and the amazing passion fruit pudding :-).

All the waiting staff were friendly and professional and we really enjoyed eating in the restaurant as a-posed to going out to eat because of the friendly service and great food.

Don't pay attention to the comments on poor service in the resaurant as the staff here work their socks off and are always willing to help and if you want something hot for breakfast they cook eggs however you like them and bacon fresh.

Cleaning Staff:

After a long day out or just a relaxing time in the hotel by the pool we always went back to a nice clean room and although I didn't actually get to meet them I would like to thank them for making our room cosy and comfortable.

Rooms:

We stayed on floor 1 and the room was really nice and quiet. It was modern with a large comfortable bed and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The rooms on this floor and floor 0 are slightly more expensive but not much and it was worth every extra penny for the large private balcony which had amazing views over Funchal.

Travel and Trips:

Taxi's to Funchal centre from the hotel were around 8-10 euros but I would recommend confirming the price before hand so there is no confusion. If you ask at reception the lovely staff will arrange this for you. On the way back to the hotel in the evening the drivers will quote between 15 and 20 euros but we never paid more than 10 and if you stand your ground you should not pay any more. You can book most excursions directly through the hotel who make the phone calls and arrange times for pick ups etc for you.

Don't pay attention to the comments about dogs and bells because the bells start at 10/11am and stop at 8pm and are only on the hour and from the room we could not hear any dogs.

All in all we had an amazing stay at this hotel and will definitely be back to stay again. We have also recommended this hotel to everyone we have spoken to and now on trip advisor too :-). .

Thank you all again at the Quinta Mirabela and we hope to see you all again soon.

Our Kindest Regards

Luke and Amina

Room Tip: Floors 0 and 1 have a large private balcony - worth the extra money.

Excellent in almost every way. Take your own tea and coffee. The climb to the hotel is impossible - we were fit but in my opinion this could only be tackled in proper walking boots. \the hotel provides a courtesy bus but only twice a day - fares by taxi ranged from 6 to 15 euros dependent on which driver you got.

Room Tip: Room 107 was close by the restaurant but you never heard any noise. It was also larger than 403, whe...
