This hotel is approx. halfway up a steep hill towards Monte and is definitely not for the faint-hearted tourist who enjoys ambling around, people-watching. You need a hire car, good street map, or plenty of money for taxi trips.

The hotel is modern, clean, quirky (you walk through a mirror to get to some of the bedrooms!) and very well staffed. Restaurant is excellent, atmosphere relaxed yet smart, and the staff are keen to please. Bedroom was a good size and looked out over the swimming pool (not in use in Feb!)

Beware the temperamental card machine on checking out - we were charged twice for our 2 night stay, necessitating a special visit up there and several emails to get the refund. Could be because of the poor wifi connections.

Room Tip: All rooms look out over the city far below.

We stayed for five nights and was awarded super service from all staff. After the initial disapointment of how small the room are we enjoyed our stay. Due to the step hill all around funchal the hotel can be a little isoltaed. But eh hotel bus - for free - helps a lot. When there are free wifi all over - as there soon will be according to the manager - it's truely a five star hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite tiny

Confortable, breathtaking view, modern, design, excelent service, are the most words you will use to discribe your staying.
The balcony is an amazing view to Funchal bay, it pays up to spend it just to admire it... Fully recommend it for a summer day, to surprise your lover, for Madeira new year eve fireworks show, or just to relax and use the spa facilities. Top design decor hotel.

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....
