Smart, clean hotel. Five star - does what it says on the tin. Friendly prompt service. Superb location - the view over Funchal is exceptional - the only slight downside being that it's on a steep narrow busy road with no footpath, and if you're walking (as we were) you take your life in your hands! But then most streets...

This was our third visit to Quinta Das Vistas and our most memorable to date. We were treated brilliantly throughout our stay and all the staff are helpful, friendly and efficient. In conversation at check-in (which was a breeze and a delight) we mentioned that we always visit during our wedding anniversary. Within minutes of being in our room we...

We chose Quinta das Vistas because we prefer charming hotels over big, massive complexes. The hotel was okay, with some good and some weak points. The good ones first: definitely the views. From the outside restaurant/breakfast area you enjoy a fantastic, breathtaking view over the bay of Funchal. The staff at reception was extremely friendly and attentive. We felt very...

After several letdowns in five star quality in Funchal, Madeira, we found this hotel by chance; our airport shutlle stopped by at the hotel and we immediately felt this might be for us. Not much later, we spent another Madeira holiday there, and it was the first stay on Madeira which satisfied 100%. The hotel is rather small, very spacious,...

I stayed at Quinta das Vistas while attending a conference in Funchal. It is a quiet hilltop hotel overlooking the city and the ocean, comfortable inside and decorated in part in modern but also some antique furniture, always in good taste. The views are magnificent from the terrace where you dine and have breakfast. I am no expert on travel...

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful. We were in our rooms within 10 minutes, where we found a small bottle of Madiera ans a cake waiting.

My husband and I have today returned from spending and unexpected 11 day holiday to Madeira (thank you Iceland Volcano!) This Quinta is by far one of the best Quinta's on the Island which is very modern and close to Funchal centre although a good 20 mins by foot. (however, if you wish to have a more traditional Quinta we...

We also stayed at the sister hotel Quinta do Monte - this one is smarter, nearer to town and more expensive (book off-peak through the Charming Hotels website for discounted rates). The big draw is the stunning view from the terrace where breakfast (and cocktails!) was served. The pools are a bit pokey but the spa's very nice and its...
