We stayed in the "De Mar" section of the hotel so excellent views though not as atmospheric and olde worlde as the main hotel. Rooms are a decent size and the decor is fine though a little tired. The balcony was the main attraction and it is properly separated from other rooms so very private. A lovely big pool and... More

We stayed in the Penha de Franca Mar and can't fault the hotel for its central location and sea views. We were fortunate enough to stay on the second floor which had a fantastic central view of the sea but be warned as the ground floor rooms have a high wall that restricts your view severely , which you don't...

The location is perfect! We could easily walk into town or get on the road to drive to other parts of the island. The view is amazing from the PF full ocean view rooms. Spend more and stay there you won't regret it! The ocean access for a swimming is a blast and the salt water pool is lovely. Breakfast... More

Just returned from a lovely week here, the room was large and clean with a side sea view , the beds were comfy, the staff really friendly especially the girls in the restaurant. Despite a new hotel in construction nearby the Quinta was such an oasis of tranquillity that the external noise just went over your head. Would definitely go... More

This hotel is not in what is classed as the hotel zone (Frente Mar), but around the headland nearer the Town. We wanted somewhere that was not all glass and metal (which most of the hotels in the hotel zone appeared to be) but with a bit more character and this hotel met that need. We had a "side sea-view...

We loved it then and it did not disappoint this time around either. The hotel is a wonderful oasis within the busy town of Funchal where you can experience the best of... More

We had chosen a superior room but did not such a super location with sea view and extended balcony. Staff were excellent throughout our week. Breakfasts became predictable but were well presented with good choice. Superb location only 10 minutes walk from the Marina. Good restaurants very close.
