Excellent,elegant,stylish and grand hotel in a quiet cul de sac.Usual Portuguese friendly and efficient staff,who could not do enough to make your stay hassle free.
The courtesy bus was excellent and helpful for those who will find the walk back from Funchal Centro a little challenging,alternatively the local bus was worth the 1euro90cents for the experience.
For first timers to Madeira,you must go and see this beautiful Island,walkers or not,and stay at this hotel which was recommended to ourselves.
We thought the cooked breakfast a little cold which was mentioned,but not acted opon,but hey,I'm being picky.
We would return tomorrow,Obrigado Quintinha São Joao

Stayed in the hotel for a week just recently and cannot fault it. Fabulous staff and spotlessly clean. Felt as if we were staying in someone's house which was great. Restaurant food was great especially if you wanted the Goan stuff spiced up a bit, (thanks Sandra). Also thanks to Rosie and Lilianne. Easy to get into town and back, about 10 minutes walk. Partner had her birthday during our stay and was surprised by a birthday cake and a bottle of bubbly in the room. Would recommend this hotel with no qualms. Don't quite understand all the negative reviews as in dogs barking, get a life!!

Only good points to mention for this hotel. The staff is efficient and helpful, if you need something, but don't let you feel their presence. The rooms are large, clean and pleasant, without noise from neighbouring rooms. Just a bit of noise coming from the street at rush hour. The bar is comfortable, with reasonnable prices, and the restaurant offers a chaoice of very tasty meals cooked with fresh food. It's easy walk the centerof Funchal, but public buses (on top of the hotel shuttle) are available. The closest bus #11 is not so frequent, but #12 is not far.

Room Tip: Rooms with low numbers are closest to the street, (that's what we got), so rooms with high number receive probably less street noise

This was my first trip to Madeira and we chose to stay at Quintinha São Joao after scanning through many hotels on the internet. One can never tell really but the experience was I would say fantastic. It was small and personable, the staff were the most helpful I have experienced. The room was ' enormous' as was the queens size bed. The garden was relaxing oh and the breakfast was delicious with so much on offer. I felt very fortunate to have found this place and will definitely return to Madeira and to this lovely hotel. Great terrace, two swimming pools, games room and wonderful cakes for afternoon tea. I even got fitter walking back from the town centre which, was a bit of an uphill hike. I have to admit getting a taxi back after an evening out more than once! Fabulous.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony most do have but pay a bit extra to ensure you have one.

We stayed here for 9 nights and found it one of the most relaxing breaks ever. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The Quintinha's decor is tasteful and decorative. The garden was very beautifully maintained and the fresh flowers throughout the house added so much.
Breakfast made a pefect start to each day. A perfect antidote to the weather back home.
