“A Superb Hotel in a wonderful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Just got home from a wonderful 2 week stay at the superb Jardins do Lago.

It really lives up to its reputation on Tripadvisor as the Number One Hotel in Madeira.
Cant really add any more to all the positive comments on here --Couldnt find any downside!

As this was our Sapphire Anniversary, we wanted something special. Well we were not dissapointed! The Jardin do Lago was the most perfect hotel.We were upgraded to a suite with champagne and dinner as complimentary !The hotel and gardens were so lovely and the staff so friendly and helpful. We had 10 days of bliss and were SO relaxed at the end. We will be going back again .If you want a totally relaxing holiday ,this is the hotel to go too.We would not have changed anything..

Room Tip: It only has 40 rooms,but being on the top floor we had a wonderful veiw of Funchal

Stayed again at Jardins do lago, would not stay anywhere else. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small hotel with lovely botanical gardens and very nice pool area with refreshments. Rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable. If you would like a nice relaxing holiday or be able to go on trips and visit the rest of the Island the choice is yours. The Tropical and Botanical gardens are a must.

This was our 4th visit to this hotel. We usually stay in a premier suite which are large, airy and spacious. They have 3 rooms, a big bedroom, a spacious bathroom and a seperate lounge which is as big as the bedroom. They have a double size balcony too. This time we were upgraded to the presidential suite (thank you so much as we did appreciate the lovely surprise). The suite itself is the same size as the premier suites but the balcony is wider and longer, enough so that it houses the outside table and chairs plus two sunloungers and a 2nd side table. It overlooks the outside breakfast area and is a wonderful sun trap late afternoon. Highly recommend the premier or presidential suites for a special occasion.

The hotels remains as charming and peaceful as ever. The gradens are beautiful and the pool offers a welcome break during the heat of the day. The only comment I have on the accomodation is the same one I made after my last visit. Some of the tiny square tiles lining the pool are missing and need to be replaced. However, this would involve draining the pool and as Madeira is a year round resort I can see why this would be difficult.

The standard of food is high both at breakfast, poolside and in the evening with plenty of choice. The only area that could be improved is the bacon at breakfast. Its streaky rather than back bacon and personally, I prefer mine cooked much crispier than the hotel does.

Finally, and I know this is sooo lazy but in the Far East top hotels provide guests poolside with a flag so they can wave it or put it on the side tables if they require service. It would be great if Jardins could offer a similar service. Outside of the lunch hours, the poolside staff don't have a great deal to do and could easily walk to the guests to take orders rather than the guests having to walk through the dining area to place orders. Just a suggestion and one which I think would probably increase bar sales on hot days.

Room Tip: They're all good but the higher floors provide the best sea views.

We selected this hotel because we wanted something special with a feel of luxury and we were not disappointed. Quality is evident in all the public areas of the hotel and the service provided by the staff in all positions was exceptional. This is perhaps not an appropriate hotel for those wanting an exciting time but is perfect for those wanting great facilities in an atmosphere of relaxation and friendship with likeminded guests. The pool area and facilities are particularly special.

My husband and I had a wonderful holiday in this hotel. Set up the hill from Funchal and surrounded by magnificent tropical gardens, this elegant hotel is close to perfection. It only has 41 bedrooms so you receive really outstanding service from the friendly staff, unlike the large 200 bed places. Our room was enormous, beautifully furnished and with a terrace overlooking the gardens. The pool area is lovely and the poolside cafe/bar serves food and drinks all day.
We would recommend this hotel in the highest possible terms if you are contemplating a holiday in Madeira.

We spent a 12 days holidays there and we were really had a great time. The place is very nice with a big swimming pool, a nice bar, a good restaurant and a beautiful garden. The service at the reception is outstanding, they arrange everything for you, you just have to ask. The rooms are big and very clean. I spent my 50th birthday there and in the morning we already had a cake and a glass of champagne which was a very nice attention. We will definitely not look for another place next time we go to Madeira !
