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,...

We arrived in the early afternoon and were booked in and shown to our room within 10minutes. The room was a good size, very clean with pleasant decor. Our 'garden view' room had a stunning view over the mountains with a glimpse of the ocean and harbour. The Bathroom was of a very high standard with plenty of towels including...

My wife and I stayed here for the second time Sept 2008, our first visit being our honeymoon in Sept 2006. Our stay in 2006 was excellent and so we returned this year with our expectations high. I had emailed the hotel to ask for flowers and a bottle of "sparkly" to be placed to the room for our anniversary....

We recently returned from our honeymoon in Funchal. We stayed at the Quintas Das Vistas for six nights and were very disappointed with the hotel and restaurant service. The rooms need updated - the carpeting, curtains and bedspreads were old and stained. In our first room, we found two large roaches. We were later moved to a new room upon...

I put a lot of store in TA reviews but took a gamble on this hotel as despite not being high up the TA Funchal hotel "league table" does get very positive reviews here and on other web sites.

The hotel is in a prime position with good views across Funchal and the surrounding countryside. It's an easy 15 min walk into town but a long climb back - the bus or taxi is a good bet for that.
