We have just returned from a week at this lovely hotel. We consider ourselves quite picky when it comes to cleanliness and service etc but after staying at the Quinta dal Bela Vista we had nothing to worry about. This hotel is overlooking the town of Funchal away from the crowds. The greeting from the staff at the reception was warm and friendly, our room was no. 321 which overlooks the pool and with views to the sea was just lovely, very clean and comfortable with crisp white cotton sheets and fluffy towels. Air conditioning kept the night time sleeping nice and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and substantial, something for everyone. Most of our days were spent out and about, however we did have lunch at the hotel on two occasions and dinner outside at the Quinta on two occasions. (which is something not to miss.)
The food and service is outstanding, it was a pleasure to have our meals served to us by some of the most friendly and efficient staff we have come across. The hotel itself has a colonial feel, large, airy and full of good quality antique furnishing and artwork. They offer an excellent mini bus shuttle to the town several times a day, the only problem is that it only has 9 seats so you must be prompt!
Going out and about: We went up to Monte Gardens in the cable car which was a great day out, we bought our tickets at the cable car. The gardens a beautiful and the view from the top of the church stunning. Go to the flower/fish/fruit market at the end of the town and pop upstairs to the rooftop cafe for a beer, ladies ask for a small one, the medium was like a small bucket! we also had a snack here and it was delicious.
We also took the ferry to Porto Santo, the beach was the softest sand we have seen ( and we live near Cornwall) but the town disappointing. Next time we visit we will do the catamaran to see dolphins and whales instead.
Blandys tour is a must, we took the premuim and the vintage tours , the latter was just the two of us and a guide and we sampled a 1968 vintage Madeira which was smooth as silk.
Take time to go to the Ritz on the plaza area sit down, order sangria and watch the world go by, if you get there just before lunch there is live music.
We did have a seafood meal at the marina but felt it was overpriced.
Yellow bus tour is great, for 12 euros each you can hop on and off at the designated stops as many times as you wish in 24 hours, a good way to see what you want to see then revisit when yo want. The water was safe to drink which is a plus in my mind, and at no time at all did we feel unsafe.
If you do visit this hotel we are sure you will have a lovely relaxing time, but if your wish is to have a disco or entertainment every night then this is not the place for you, try the hotel district in Funchal .
A big thank you to everyone at the Quinta da Bela Vista for making our stay so comfortable, we will be returning as soon as we can.!

Room Tip: For a view of the garden and sea, choose rooms 317- 322. these rooms have a small balcony.

An outstanding experience which goes well beyond the traditional fare of 5-star accomodations. The service is outstanding in providing an ambience of tranquility and serenity with highly professional staff trained to cater to one's personal comfort. Merely the unfortunate staying pets from the neighborhood were an occasional disruption at night.
The quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff was without exception impeccable and genuine.

Room Tip: all rooms face the beautiful gardens and the sea- ask for a room with a balcony!

Just returned from our second holiday here.
It was just as good as before.
It was lovely to be greeted by friendly staff (Paula & Fernando on reception )on arrival.
Private transfer from airport just makes life easier than a bus.
The hotel is as every one else says.
In a beautiful position above Funchal but only a 10 euro taxi or free minibus 6 times a day if that is more convenient.
We were on 3 days half board @ 42 euros for 5 course meal which was nearly always including items from a la carte menu so filet steak and great fish available.
We also ate ALC on other nights with 3 courses coming in at about the same price so no hardship.
There is a lovely pool with a small keep fit centre (never used!!!) with a small bar adjacent to a lovely sitting area next to the pool for lunch or even afternoon tea if wanted.
Both breakfast and dinner were taken outside in lovely weather with a good selection of items for breakfast both English and European.
The hotel is beautifully furnished with antiques and owner lives on premises so IF any problems they can be fixed there and then not on return to UK.
Ther is a nice mix of nationalities so not overrun by too many Brits.
All staff are so friendly it was a wrench to come home but we will return.

Thanks once again to all staff.

Room Tip: Rooms in old part overlook the gardens

This hotel in Madeira is in a quite location with breath taking views of the Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean. The rooms are all spacious with views of the beautiful gardens which Madeira is famous for, food is a very high standard, with lots to choose from from breakfast to dinner.
Staff go that extra mile to make sure that your stay in a very special one and nothing is not to much trouble.
This hotel is suited for singles , couples and retired people!
All the hotel furniture is antique in every corridor, that makes it that extra special feeling about the place..

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe balcony, views of the gardens are lovely and the sun shines all day.
