I am writing to say thank you to Paulo and all of your staff at the Quinta Mirabela. We stayed in July from the 6th - 13th and had such an amazing time.
To sum up this hotel in 1 word - "perfect"
The views from the 2 terraces are incredible, the hotel was modern and clean and away from the hustle and bustle of Funchal centre. Watching the toboggan speed down the road whilst stood by the pool was an experience that you would only get at the Quinta Mirabela.
Even before we arrived I contacted the reception staff who helped to arrange flowers for our room as a surprise for my partner and they were so nice and polite in dealing with my questions. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and the whole week we were there they were always smiling, were always willing to help and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The chef's deserve a special mention as all the food we had was delicious especially the Madeira night on the terrace and the amazing passion fruit pudding :-).
All the waiting staff were friendly and professional and we really enjoyed eating in the restaurant as a-posed to going out to eat because of the friendly service and great food.
Don't pay attention to the comments on poor service in the resaurant as the staff here work their socks off and are always willing to help and if you want something hot for breakfast they cook eggs however you like them and bacon fresh.
After a long day out or just a relaxing time in the hotel by the pool we always went back to a nice clean room and although I didn't actually get to meet them I would like to thank them for making our room cosy and comfortable.
We stayed on floor 1 and the room was really nice and quiet. It was modern with a large comfortable bed and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The rooms on this floor and floor 0 are slightly more expensive but not much and it was worth every extra penny for the large private balcony which had amazing views over Funchal.
Travel and Trips:
Taxi's to Funchal centre from the hotel were around 8-10 euros but I would recommend confirming the price before hand so there is no confusion. If you ask at reception the lovely staff will arrange this for you. On the way back to the hotel in the evening the drivers will quote between 15 and 20 euros but we never paid more than 10 and if you stand your ground you should not pay any more. You can book most excursions directly through the hotel who make the phone calls and arrange times for pick ups etc for you.
Don't pay attention to the comments about dogs and bells because the bells start at 10/11am and stop at 8pm and are only on the hour and from the room we could not hear any dogs.
All in all we had an amazing stay at this hotel and will definitely be back to stay again. We have also recommended this hotel to everyone we have spoken to and now on trip advisor too :-). .
Thank you all again at the Quinta Mirabela and we hope to see you all again soon.
Our Kindest Regards
Luke and Amina
