We travel a LOT and do not like large impersonal hotels crowded with people whose main thing is hitting the beach. I researched all the Funchal hotel possibilities carefully and came to the conclusion that QPF met all our criteria for the first 4 days of our 2-week Madeira trip! We were NOT disappointed! It was close enough to walk... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Quinta Da Penha De Franca, not to be confused with the Quinta Da Penha De Mar. When researching this hotel I was quite confused because they are attached (in a weird way). The De Franca portion is older more gardens, I think more charm. We stayed in the main part of the...

We were quite sceptical when booking this hotel as the furniture looked very dated and the reviews of the staff weren't great. However we've settled right in and find it very cosy infact, we have the pool virtually to ourselves and maybe only fills up with another 6 people on the sunbeds, it's very nice and private with no kids...

I stayed at the Hotel Penha de França Mar 6 nights in mid-July. We chose this part of the hotel, perhaps more trivial in appearance, comparing with the gardens hotel body across the street, but with a wonderful view to the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel has an excellent location in a quiet area but close enough to downtown Funchal where... More

Just got back from this lovely old fashioned hotel. I mean old fashioned in a good way, where customer happiness actually means a lot to all the wonderful staff. The setting,the cleanliness , all superb. We would not consider any other hotel in Funchal, and we will be going back.

Over the past 5 years I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. Each time has been just for a few days whilst fishing. I have always left wishing I could stay just a few days longer. The hotel is very clean and the staff are really friendly.

This was our first visit to Madeira and judging by the hotel we stayed in in Funchal, will not be our last. We were actually staying in the 'De Mar' part of the hotel which is slightly separated from the main part and overlooks the sea. Lovely location. Al the rooms have balcony's with sea views. But I'd recommend asking... More

I can't believe some of the reviews for this hotel. I booked it to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday and found the room's (we stayed in the Mar part of the hotel)spotlessly clean with beautiful views and lovely furnishing's if you like a modern approach if you prefer a more typical manor house room opt for the main hotel.

Unfortunately my feedback on this one can't be great :-( We had a bad experience with my family that really left my experience lacking. A lot of issues. Here are some: Regarding breakfast: - The breakfast staff was discussing in the kitchen and breakfast room making it ridiculous for the customers trying to have a relaxed breakfast experience; - Trying...
