This hotel is ultra-modern, minimalistic in design and our air-conditioned room had fantastic views over Funchal from a covered balcony. The bed was really comfortable and the room was serviced beautifully. There was a mini-bar/fridge, mini-safe, well stocked bathroom and flat-screen tv...but no tea making facilities. Lifts were roomy and conveniently placed.
Breakfast was buffet style mainly, but you could ask for eggs freshly cooked any way you liked them. There was fruit juice, a great variety of fruit, cereals, toast, cold meats/cheese, salad, cakes, yoghourts of all flavours, tea and coffee...so more than enough to set you up for the day.
Reception and all other staff were friendly and helpful. There was a PC for guests to use and a well equipped gym, not to mention an outdoor pool and sun deck with great sun beds. Pool was a bit cold but we were lucky with the weather and sunbathing/swimming outdoors in January is sheer luxury for people from Wales!
The only drawback is the hill up to the hotel....but I guess if you want the views you gotta take the hill too! The hotel mini-bus will take you down to the centre at set times...which is worth booking at reception. Just get a taxi back ...as the hill is for fell-runners only! Make sure the taxis are on the meter...as we paid 12 euros on one occasion but were charged 7 or 8 euros most of the time so be warned!
Funchal is fabulous and it seems you can't go wrong food and drink wise.....though we found the best restaurants down in the 'Old Town' where all the front-doors are fantastically and imaginatively decorated...worth seeing in themselves! Quinta Mirabela itself has an extensive menu if you fancy a night in
All in all one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in!
