“Simply the best”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Our first visit to Madeira and we selected this hotel because of the TA reviews. We were not disappointed. What a gem! I can only confirm everything that's been said before. We had room 302 - a superior room and it was just perfect (just like the one in the brochure.) Our balcony overlooked the beautiful gardens and the ocean beyond. (The gardens were beautiful and so interesting - we kept coming across trees/shrubs we'd never seen before.) Everywhere (inside and out) was spotless and the staff were so friendly, efficient and helpful. It says a lot for a hotel when they can be bothered to remember your name! Our taxi driver from the airport (booked by the hotel) was Esmeraldo Caldeira mobile: 00351 91 86 95 873 who was so informative and all round super guy, that we booked him for an entire day to take us on a tour of the island. He was a mine of information and charged 120 euros, which was exceptionally reasonable. We took taxis into Funchal and these usually cost 7 euros 50 cents. I agree that children might ruin the ambience of the hotel but they do have good children's facilities. With just 40 rooms it was the ideal size for us. If we return to the island we would automatically book to stay at the beautiful Quinta Jardins do Lago because it simply is the best.

Having read previous reviews we were certainly not disappointed! Very comfortable hotel in amazing gardens, with a superb swimming pool.

The staff were all very efficient and friendly and we loved all meals - breakfast al fresco (most mornings) and very ample evening meals.

Could not find a better place to stay in Madeira! We will return.

We stayed in a superior panoramic view room, on the top floor (rm 307) definitely a good choice as the views were stunning - the beautiful gardens with the ocean beyond. This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing and pampered stay - not a place to bring children, although there are facilities, but I wouldn't feel comfortable breaking the peace and quiet! The staff were, without exception, courteous, helpful and happy. Special mention for Lui and his amazing cocktail - the Lui Lui :-) The pool is beautiful and amply warm enough to swim on a sunny February day. Location is excellent - a nice downhill stroll into Funchal and you can get a bus back (number 15) if you don't fancy the steep walk, although that earns you a cocktail! We would recommend that you ask the hotel to order a taxi from the airport for you, and ask for Aldo - a really lovely local man - he will tell you all about Madeira, and for a reasonable fee he will take you around the island for the day, stopping at some 'off the beaten track' places and making a very relaxing day out. What more can we say, exempt when can we go back?!

We returned for our second year to the Quinta Jardins do Lago and what a good decision it was. What a delight. Hotel is beautifully presented, helpful and friendly staff, wonderful gardens with an elegant pool. Very good food, an excellent chef. It is rare for us to revisit a holiday location but this is an exception. We shall continue to return.

We arrived to be told our room had been upgraded - a delightful surprise. From that moment on Quinta Jardins do Lago proved why it deserves every one of its five stars. It's quiet, peaceful, unobtrusive but helpful and friendly staff made the stay perfect.
There was no problem dealing with special dietary needs. The rooms were spotless and the grounds immaculate
It is about a mile from the centre of Funchal - uphill. For us that was no problem but may be for anyone with mobility issues. Its location away from the city centre in beautiful grounds is what makes it so attractive.
We would stay there again without any hesitation

Our second visit to Maderia but first to the Quinta Jardins do Lago. From the moment we arrived for the whole of our two weeks stay the facilities, staff, food and surrounds were all all 5 Star. An exeptional experience of colonial service. As gathered from other guests comments. The hotel`s location does not favour pedestrian walking into Funchal. The courtesy bus would be better run to a regular time table (say hourly) without having to book the return trip. In saying that the cost of a Taxi from Funchal was 5 euros.

Room Tip: 3rd Floor Superior room was worth the addition cost. Very quite and a Sea view on a good day! AM s...
