“good value, good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Stayed in Feb for a week. Room very good, large with twins settee, kitchenette table and chairs.
Reception staff all excellent. Breakfast was the biggest let down, not enough choice especially as my daughter is veggie so usually fills up on breakfast with pastries etc.. but a someone else mentioned food was not relelished quick enough staff were more intrested in setting up tables.
out door pool is cold even though it states heated, indoor pool fine, jacussi great had a massage which was very good.area good shops down the road, abit further for resturants, bus good shame it dose not do a latter pickup.they do a towel service and kettle in room a few bath stuff like shampoo and body wash. Free wi fi in reception, entertainment not good, same singers every night.local dancers one night.

My wife and I had stayed at The Jardins d'Ajuda in March 2012, and decided to return for the New Year 2012/13.
We were warmly greeted by the reception staff who remembered us, it was the same in the dining room, first one waiter then another coming over to say Hello. It really does make you feel at home and amongst friends
New Years Eve went with a bang, the Gala dinner was excellent and was followed by a cabaret. Later, to see in the New Year the management opened up the roof top for us to watch the fantastic fireworks display down in Funchal. Free sparkling wine was available on the roof.
Throughout the rest of the stay we ate in the dining room on eight more occasions and were not disappointed, the choice available at the buffett offered something for all tastes. I became firm friends with the head Chef, Tonio and we had many a foody chat, my wife also became good friends with Paula the head waitress. Paula even gave us a going home gift before we came home. This is a Four Star establishment with Five star facilities and staff. We have two more visits planned for 2013, in October and again for the New Year.

We have just spent another lovely week in Madeira. Having spent lots of time walking the levadas and mountains it was great to get back in the late afternoon to take a sauna, swim and jacuzzi. Our room was looking a little bit tired but very spacious and very clean. We were first of all offered a room overlooking the road which was a nicer room but we wanted the calm of the garden side of the hotel. This year we only had bed and breakfast so can't comment on what the dinners were like but the breakfasts were very good with food for all nationalities. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we shall probably go back again next year.

Room Tip: I would recommend asking for a room at the back of the hotel as I imagine it could be noisy at the f...

We were originally supposed to be staying at the musa hotel, a smaller building down the street owned by Jardins d'Ajuda. However, when we arrived we were upgraded to the main hotel free of charge, although this is a much more expensive hotel. The desk staff were extremely friendly, always taking the time to greet us and ask how we were, even if we were simply passing through to the restaurant or pool. The restaurant and bar staff were the best part of our stay, extremely happy and helpful, and we felt as if they were friends of ours by the time we left. The room was great, with a perfect view and the maids were friendly and efficient. We slept like logs every night we were here. There is a free courtesy bus to the town many times a day which is great. Overall, a great stay. We will definitely be back!

This is my second review on this hotel, as soon as you walk into this hotel you are made to feel very welcome.All the staff are very friendly and nothing is to make trouble for them.
The rooms are a little dated but clean and well furnish The room as a little kitchenette area which is very handy for cup of tea and making a sandwich for your lunch, we had view which over look the pool and beautiful gardens.
The pool area in very nice and clean with plenty of free sun loungers it also and has a coffee shop where you can get cold drinks and meals for lunch from .The garden area is also very beautiful, we would go a have our breakfast in the restaurant and then go and have a sit in the garden to have think about the days events.
The restaurant is very good too. The staff are very friendly and helpful they cater for all your needs and if there is something that you would like but can't see it they get it for you . We normally eat out every night by the food was good here so we decided to eat in the restaurant .
The hotel also has a very good indoor pool area with Jacuzzi which comes in handy if the weather isn't to good.
The hotel is basic near a nice shopping center and near bus stops to take you into the center of Funchal.

We enjoyed our holiday here and the whole Maderia experience. We have been meaning to visit the island for a while now after hearing good reviews. Agreed with many reviewers that most of the British visitors are elderly and it is used mainly by Spanish and French families. One good point if you can say that is that we did not see one football shirt all week in the whole of Madeira - and I am a football supporter myself. I guess this says something about the type of people who visit Madeira. The Hotel is looking it's age but all was clean and tidy and room was large with comforable beds. Being on the outskirts of Funchal the Hotel is in a quieter area (that goes for most of Funchal) but the bus service is very frequent and bang on time - get an all week ticket for really good value - this will even take you up to Monte and the gardens in the hills surrounding the town. We used the Forum shopping centre - 2 mins walk away which was very good. Outdoor pool was good and we also used the indoor pool and Sauna which were also fine. Pool bar was good with reasonably priced food and drink. We tend not to return to the same hotel or resort if we can but would add this to our reccomended list.

Would recommend and we will return
