Recently spent a very enjoyable week at Quinta Da Penha De Franca. Hotel was in a great location just a short walk downhill to the main town area. Hotel had access to the ocean across a walk bridge to it's sister hotel and pool and down to the ocean. Hotel pool area and surrounding grounds could do with a hard... 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.

We chose this hotel based on its tripadvisor ranking - and we were not disappointed. Small, friendly, quiet, with a great restaurant and cocktail bar. The pool was clean, spacious, quiet and with good sea views. Lots of quiet areas to hide away, read books, sun-bathe or just admire the gardens. The sister hotel is just a 2 minute walk... More

This is an excellent hotel, superb location. We stayed in the old quinta da penha de franca. It's worth paying a little extra for a superior twin room with balcony and sea side view x sun all day and superb views. Brilliant staff and spotlessly clean. Beds and towels changed each day. 10 mins to marina and Funchal town, a... More

We had a lovely ten night stay at this hotel staying in the main part of the hotel (Not the ‘Mar’ part) with breakfast included. The building itself has a nice traditional character about it whilst still providing all the expected modern facilities. It is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the town centre and about 15 minutes... More

We stayed in main part of hotel with great views - just be careful when booking you know there are 2 parts of hotel and other part did not look as nice - had pool overlooking sea and during our visit area was quiet and easy to get sun loungers so excellent

The hotel is ideally located close to the centre of Funchal, which is only a short walk away. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Definitely my preferred place to stay in Funchal. The restaurant at the Quinta De Penha Da Franca Mar is worth a visit, especially when Sarah Borges is performing.

A superb hotel in an old quinta that has real character. Lots of woodwork & antique furnishings makes it feel so much nicer than the modern corporate type hotels. It is situated only 10 minutes from Funchal shops & harbour & you can use the lift down to the promenade & walk into town along a flat path - so... More
