The hotel itself is pretty small regarding the number of rooms, but this has a very positive effect on the quality of the service. All staff was very friendly, helpful and always at service. The rooms were clean, the bathroom okay, we had a little veranda with a view of the beautiful and well-maintained gardens.
There is one outside and one covered pool on the roof. The first one had some leaves from the surrounding trees in it, but this is the price you pay for the lovely surroundings.
The quintinha is situated a 20 minute walk away from downtown (30 for the old town/zona velha) or you take a taxi for 5 Euros. There is a free shuttle service, but only once or twice a day.
The only weak point is the restaurant (but this is part of another review of mine): breakfast has been plenty but pretty much the same for a whole week with slightest variations on the fruit offered. The diner was - to put it simply - not good at all and in particular overprized for the quality of the dishes.
We will surely be back once again and hope, that until then the very few issues with the restaurant are solved.
