I liked everything - the room, the hotel ambience, the service, amazing view. Excellent staff and great service. The breakfast was superb!
Located apart from the city life: around the vineyards, fields and countryside. There's so quiet that you can relax.
Excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner.
I expected of perfection and the hotel was exactly such.
Get to the hotel is possible by car or taxi.

Spent two very relaxing nights here. A warm greeting, a very well pointed restful room with all the trappings of a top hotel. The seaview room and balcony offered an awe inspiring view of the nearby coastline. The atmosphere was a bit reminiscent of an English Country House Hotel with at this time of year,blazing log fires. The impressive restaurant and Pub as well as the Wine Cellar are in separate wing. The restaurant offers a good choice of local traditional dishes, but they can be not to everyone's taste. Our impression of two nights dining was mixed and more consistency is needed. The regular menu offers good fish,steaks, and game. Wine list is extensive and a tasting of the wines of Madeira from Blandys makes an for interesting pre dinner aperitifs. The staff are highly trained and offer friendly efficient service and all speak good English.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. It's very relaxing no matter what you do, stay in the room, walk around and enjoy the view, or take a swim in the pool. Very good value for money. The restaurant was also very good, sometimes a bit uneven but overall we enjoyed it, especially the chocolate mousse dessert.

A good tip for an excursion is the levada walk between queimadas - caldeirao verde, only 20 minutes away by car. We took a taxi there for only 10 euros.

Our arrival at the Quinta do Furao was marked by Red Alert notices warning us not to open windows or shutters due to an impending storm. This duly arrived, caused a degree of havoc and carried on northwards the next day. The staff handled everything, including an influx of water in our room, with quiet calmness and efficiency and we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. This was our third visit and the food at breakfast and in the restaurant was as good as ever. If you stay here, don't plan to do too much; just enjoy the ambience, the views and the comfortable rooms. Read a book and chill out. We will be back again before too long.

Room Tip: The standard twin rooms are fine but tend to have small windows. For a little extra and to enjoy the...

I found this hotel when searching Trip Advisor, and it turned out to be a good as the best reviews. Everything one would want was there-good service, good restaurant, good views, good location.

Our room was on the back about in the middle. The best views are closer to the ocean looking along the coast. See photos.

This hotel is located about 45 minutes from the airport if one drives directly there, which I do not recommend, as there are places to see on the way.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far back as possible toward the ocean on the back side of the hotel. View is ve...

Restaurant with fantastic food quality. Very friendly and helpful staff (we arrived - due to a strike at the airport at Lisboa - at 3:30 a.m. without our luggage). It was a good idea to rent the car at the hotel - we had no problem and the engine of our Nissan Micra was strong enough to climb the highest mountains..). I'll come again!
