Our first time in Madeira and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. It is beautifully appointed and fairly centrally located for Funchal town centre and port, although it's quite a challenging walk back uphill, but you can get a taxi if you can't face it! We were upgraded to a Senior suite on the top floor with...

The five star tourist rating is perhaps a little exaggerated but this may be put down to local hotel standards. Rooms are certainly comfortable, of a reasonable size and well appointed. The general ambience is very pleasant. The gardens seemed well maintained to us and are very pleasant to relax in, weather permitting. The hotel is located within a ten...

We had considered a different, very trendy modern hotel, but thankfully realised it wasn't really 'us' and went for the Quintinha Sao Joao instead. Definitely the right choice from the moment we arrived; the warm professional welcome set the tone for such an enjoyable stay. This is the opposite of 'trendy' - more 'stylish colonial' - and all the better...
