This personally run Quinta for sure is a particular hideaway.
Once you approach the Quinta, your first impression is "wow that's so cute"!!
The stone houses and well kept gardens are really very beautiful. The restaurant terrace is cozy, and one just feels at home there.
The owner cares a lot about his guests, all the staff is very friendly and helpful.
We were staying in Suite 211, officially priced at 170€ which, however, is much overcharged for what it offers. It is almost the pricevof a 5* luxury Cliff Bay in Funchal...
The rooms are quite dark (small windows), the beds are not very comfortable and the furniture is ok but nothing special. The bathroom is nice, with big, oval shaped bathtub. However, the toilet is positioned so extremely close to the bathtub that you can not even sit there, haha what did such an architect think when he created these plans?
The walls are very thin, and unfortunately you hear all noises from outside and inside. The pool area is very pretty, but much too small. There are 40+ beds in this hotel, but a tiny pool and just 10 deck chairs. Service at the restaurant is very kind, but not very efficient. It takes a long time until you get your food, and there was not one single meal where they did not forget something. A nice hotel school training would help the staff to learn basic things of gastronomy. Many of them don't know that a fork has to find its place to the left hand side, and a knife to the right hand side. And as in so many places in Portugal, they aaaalways put you the glass on top left instead of top right. And they just put you the bottle next to your glass, then you must help yourself... Quality of food is very good, I liked it a lot.
Porto Santo's most fantastic spot is its 9 kilometers long, golden sandy beach which is just wonderful! Quinta do Serrado is at the other end of the island, and far away from the ocean. In front of the rooms of the property there is a dried out hill. No views, no wonderful beach and no azure turquoise ocean. The location of the Quinta is charming, but Porto Santo has a dream beach and in my opinion it is a pity to stay in a hotel away from the beach.
