To the staff and owners of this hotel, thank you. My most perfect vacation to date,and though Madeira is a truly beautiful place, the staff and building made the stay magic. I loved the pool; I'm not a gym bunny or olmpic swimmer but this pool was just right for lounging in and warm! The food was incredible and we're... More

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... More

For our first visit to Madeira we believe we chose a fantastic hotel, one that we would readily return to. It is situated away from the new towns Hotel Zone , with stunning views from dawn to dusk over Funchals marina, with the hills all around. The sight from the breakfast terrace of the sun rising a truly beautiful start... More

After 5 days of holidays in the Madeira island, I can say that was the most relaxing holidays ever. The hotel staff excellent allays friendly , service at the restaurant was fantastic (tasting menu was fabulous), everything was fantastic. It is definitely the place to return.

We stayed in hotel Quinta das Vistas for 5 nights and felt sorry we had to leave. This hotel is perfect for relaxing and exploring Funchal. Only couples, no small children. It is quietly located above the oldtown. Rooms are large and comfortable. We do recommend to book a room with panoramic view, as the balcony overlooks the Funchal bay/town.... More

We stayed here for four nights, at the end of our Madeira holiday. The staff were efficient and helpful, but a few more smiles would have been nice. Our standard room was nicely decorated and furnished, with a very good bathroom. The hotel pools were disappointingly small and the gardens were somewhat of a letdown, after having read the hotels...

Stayed at Das Vistas for three nights, just to get away from the English weather for a few days. We weren't disappointed. The reception was always helpful ( they stood up everytime you walked through the main entrance which was touching, can't see that happening in England) and they were always there to help. Prices in the Hotel were reasonable,... More
