We stayed at the Quinta Bela in April this year, having chosen it primarily for its location so close to the Old Town, the part of Funchal with the most character. It is also conveniently close to the centre of town, market and cable car. The hotel itself has bags of character and stunning views over Funchal and the harbour from the sea view rooms and pool terrace. Staff are generally very helpful and the ambience is laid back. Rooms are simply furnished and the shutters and black out curtains ensure a good night's sleep, if, like me, you need to block out the light.
I would return to this hotel but on a BnB basis, not half board as we did this time. The restaurant lacked atmosphere and the food just wasn't 4 star standard no matter how many ta-raa! flourishes accompanied it! and as there are so many good restaurants in the Old Town nearby, you are spoiled for choice. You are also charged for jugs of tap water at the hotel which I think is simply unacceptable. Breakfast is good, however, and the terrace a great place to have a drink and enjoy the views.
