My wife and I stayed here for a week and it was one of the loveliest short breaks we have had. The hotel itself is a bit squashed in a suburb of Funchal but it has lovely gardens and feels very private. The staff are absolutely terrific - nothing is too much trouble and they all seem to go out...

There isn’t a great deal more that I could add to the already glowing reviews that make this Quintinha shine further. It does feel quaint and established and that has already been mentioned.

We had quite a few quality of service issues with the hotel, which although annoying at the time, were surpassed by the inherent weaknesses of the hotel itself.
