We stayed here on our first visit to Madeira. The hotel is not too big but very friendly - the staff are polite and efficient and very helpful. Our room was quite large and had a lovely balcony looking over the gardens which were beautiful. We stayed half board and found the food excellent with opportunities to try the local...

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing the Quintinha de São João for your first holiday in Madeira and thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and TripAdvisor. We are pleased that you enjoyed our staff, the size of the hotel, your room and your half board option. The object of a “Quinta” is that you experience the real “Madeira”...

Iit's not surprising that this delightful hotel has some mixed reviews. The best way to review it is firstly to praise it for its positive aspects - and then summarise the few detractions. Arriving by taxi immediately gives a glow to this lovely place. Quiet, clean and well organised with the friendliest staff who can't do enough for you. The...

I've read a number of the reviews and it has to depend on what you expect. I agree it would certainly be hard to find at night as it is tucked away in a residential area. The welcome is excellent the rooms very well appointed. I note some people say that the choice of menu, table d'hote, is limited. I...

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.
