A nice and clean hotel but a bit too old style for its number of stars. We have requested a double bed for couple and we have received 2 singles. The breakfast was very basic - nothing special. The size of the outdoor pool is very small and not enought chairs to accommodate the guests. The airport transfer was a... More

we have found a very nice hotel, with friendly staff in this hotel. We have spent 9 nights in this place. The room was large, very clean and beautiful. The garden is just fantastic and lovely. One thing to improve is the price policy at the several bars, we never know what is the price of drinks as there is... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Funchal for the first time. When considering the value of Quintinha Sao Joao, it is important to understand that the Quinta experience cannot be compared with that of a larger scale mainstream hotel, both in terms of expectation and star rating scale. A quinta is by definition a rustic, privately run country-house or... More

Can't speak more highly of this beautiful, quaint, peaceful and relaxing hotel. Set in an old Quinta, this hotel has stunning old world charm, a million miles away from fast paced city life as you could get and the perfect oasis of peace and tranquility my fiancée and I were looking for as a weeks holiday.
