“Awesome view, perfect for relaxing, high standard rooms”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Perfect hotel for relaxing and if you have a rental car. Not in city center, therefor you have an awesome view over Funchal! Really nice service, high standard, restaurant really good! Had a great room with direct access to the terrace. Really enjoyed sunsets at the terrace! For relaxing holidays completly recommendable! Director Paulo is really close to his guests and tries to create your holiday perfect! No restaurants in walking distance, but tropical garden only 500 m. Hotel is located directly at the sledge ride street, but you do not hear them...Good choice anyway!

Room Tip: Superior rooms with direct access to terrace - awesome

My wife and I have just returned from Madeira, and have had the distinct pleasure of staying at this brilliant small,but perfectly formed Quinta... Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, and all assistance delivered with precise and eager attention to detail. Indeed it is this attention to detail which, for me, sets the hotel apart from its competition..... Having visited a few of the concrete monsters in Funchal, if you can manage to avoid being hounded by individuals trying to sell you some concept,loosely disguised as Timeshare, they have absolutely no soul or individuality, and I cannot believe that these huge ' Resorts' are the future of Funchal........ Surely fabulous small establishments who offer individual value and superior quality are the real future for this island..... Well done to the Mirabela. ! Just keep on doing what you are doing......!

Room Tip: Pay the small supplement for a superior room with balcony...

I stayed here, very last minute for a couple of nights. Considering the booking was so hurried, my expectations see quite low, especially since it seemed pretty cheap compared to its rivals.

Wow, what a hidden gem!!!

The greeting was warm & friendly, accompanied by a lovely glass of chilled wine; the familiarisation of the hotels amenities was comprehensive, but worth it. I stayed on the fourth floor, which I highly recommend because you have a small private terrace & a fantastic view of the harbour area.

Ok, location-wise, you are not in the thick of it, but it is only a short drive, or taxi ride onto the old town. Being away from the hum-drum suited me anyway. The views are fantastic.

The staff are warm & friendly, keeping a discreet distance, & nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are well appointed, bed line is sumptuous, the bathroom has lovely products. If I am to nit-pick over anything, the shaving/makeup mirror wasn't well lit & I would have preferred feather pillows.... but those are two very, very minor pouts. I love this hotel.

The breakfast is a feast; the fruit is very fresh, eggs cooked to order, & champagne for those who are really taking the holiday making seriously!!!

I would highly recommend, & definitely stay again. A real gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: Fourth floor for a private terrace....

We have stayed here for the past week and have been delighted with our choice, and found it excellent value for money. It is a small hotel with friendly personal service. The quality of the food in the restaurant is very good and there is a varied choice for vegetarians. I mustn't forget to mention the beds. They are very comfortable, and properly sprung. All the rooms face the front with a sea view - you pay a little more for a balcony. The terrace has superb views over Funchal and we enjoyed tea and coffee there on several afternoons watching the cruise ships come and go as they do on a daily basis..

Although we usually use buses and enjoy jostling with the locals on holiday, having arrived at the hotel, we decided to hire a car. We like the quiet location, but walking up and down those steep hills is quite hard on the knees, and exhausting on the way back, although. I did enjoy the walk up to Monte on a few occasions.

We wanted to try different levada walk each day, so it was far more convenient and efficient timewise to have a car rather than numerous taxi or bus rides to the remote locations. All the buses go from the centre of Funchal so, if you are using public transport you have to get down there first before going anywhere else.

I enjoyed the beautifully cooked fried eggs in the mornings - the yolks were so orange they must be free range. The Madeiran 'poncha' freshly made and served in a cocktail glass as an aperitif before dinner. Relaxing public areas and the well kept boutique style. The location away from the busy hotel strip, in the older residential part of Funchal with a mix of old and modern villas and gardens.

Room Tip: We stayed in 001 and found it very comfortable.

Lovely hotel set up on the hill with fabulous views over Funchal. The hotel is everything it promises to be...excellent friendly staff, great restaurant, contemporary design and incredibly relaxing. The location outside Funchal makes for a very calm setting away from the bustle of the Town. The hotel courtesy bus was very reliable and taxis were plentiful - the walk back up the hill would only be for the most athletic! Our room was well furnished and immaculately clean. We particularly enjoyed a full afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking Funchal. The sun deck and pool area were very comfortable and well attended by the staff checking for drinks orders. Overall, we felt very spoiled staying there! Can't recommend it highly enough.

We stayed in a Premier room with a balcony overlooking the pool, very classy rooms, only downside there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. The hotel is very modern and with only 24 rooms is ideal for a quiet stay. We had 5 out of 10 sunny days, the hotel is quite high up and if it gets cloudy in the mountains you tend to loose the sun, best to go down into the town and stay at the lido for the day or alternatively make us of the fabulous spa at the hotel.
