A lovely hotel situated near the centre of the old town but up a steep climb, so may not be suitable for all. However, only a 4-5 Euro taxi ride from the marina area. The hotel is comfortable and has inside and outside swimming pools, spa and gym. We stayed on a room and breakfast basis and were well satisfied... More

Due to having to cancel previous trip to Thailand due to recent bombings, we moved quickly to find a relaxing holiday in sun. Madeira didn't disappoint in that respect. The hotel itself was peaceful, clean and with friendly staff to look after us for our week. Beautiful gardens, nice pool area, and relaxed public areas made for excellent stay.

We stayed at this superb hotel. It has a nice vibe, old fashioned decor, brilliant friendly helpful staff, wonderful gardens. Two small pools.

This was our first time at the Quintinha Sao Joao, where we stayed for 9 nights. The hotel certainly lived up to our expectations and exceeded them in many respects.

We booked this hotel through Luxury Escapes and went in May 2016; the hotel itself is very nice and also the staff, but at dinner we were given a menu with only two choices for each course.
