Had two very nice weeks here. Very nice garden studio set in lovely grounds. Good choice of eating on site but also a great selection close by. A really super coffee and pastry shop about 50 yards from the entrance.
Very nice staff in all departments.
Guests come mainly from Germany but also from UK Europe USA and Canada.
Good local bus service and a limited free hotel shuttle into town. Plenty of trips to the island attractions so a car is not essential but is useful.
Weather in early October was mixed but it is the Atlantic!
The local area looks as though it has been going through a hard time...many empty shops etc. but we never felt we had the slightest worry about personal security.

Room Tip: We did not see any rooms that we would have found disappointing.

Booked through Secret Escapes a Studio sea view for £700 each approx. Flights included from Manchester, good, private quick transfer (15 mins). Were given an apartment with kitchen/large lounge, separate double bedroom and nice bathroom. 2nd floor with balcony overlooking beautiful gardens with many trees and indigenous plants, enormous area of planting with many weaving pathways and different levels, as good as the main botanical gardens. Sea view in the distance. Very quiet location and sleep quality good.
This was one of the older units but was clean and comfortable. Maid service every day, bathroom shower was good, hairdryer and bidet included, very clean and hygienic.
Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Bus stop outside almost with buses into Funchal every hour for the 20 min ride. Much nicer than staying in a big hotel in the centre and there were no children! Many German, French and Scandinavian guests although in the day time the resort felt almost empty and very quiet. The outdoor pool was not heated but was invigorating. Plenty of sunbeds and terraces and grass to relax on. The pool bar was very inviting with setees and comfortable chairs. The lunches were good value, freshly cooked and enormous!
The spa was wonderful, expansive and with all the treatment rooms, sauna, jacussi, steam rooms etc. The pool area was lovely and again was empty when I used it.
The breakfast were good with much variety, and 'fresh' juices which doesn't always appear in 4 star hotels. We were on half board and although the buffet meals were apparently all local fresh products, I was not impressed with the meats or fish on offer, the veg was the best part of the selection. The cold buffet was well stocked and would be amazing for vegetarians with the choice and variety each night.
We had a lovely week at Quinta and did a few trips about the island in preference to hiring a car, many hire cars in the small parking area of the complex so avoided the facility.
Would highly recommend to any body wishing to have a peaceful base in such beautiful surroundings with easy access to Funchal and a tour operator shop across the road from the complex offering excellent tour rates with gate pick ups, what could be easier.

Room Tip: People in G.floor garden apartments complained of cockroaches. first floor no problem.. Older apartments don't have air con,

Spent a lovely week in Madeira, our fourth visit to this wonderful island. The Hotel is beautiful, set in a Botanical Garden,wonderful tropical flowers, banana's, trees and plants everywhere. Good Location near to Funchal. The Hotel apartment rooms have a small kitchenette with fridge, hob and oven and the basic plates and cutlery etc. A settee and television area, and a separate shower room with toilet ,bidet, sink etc. With either a patio garden or a balcony with lovely views. Flowers everywhere, great pool and surrounding pool area with a pool side bar. There is parking at the hotel with a small charge. There are restaurants, bars and a bakery/coffee shop within walking distance of the Hotel which are excellent and two supermarkets for all your essentials and more!
We found a Chinese Restaurant in one of the shopping area's and ate here on two occasions interspersed with meals at another excellent restaurant Central Restaurant where they serve traditional food and carve at the table the most wonderful array of meats!! We were lucky to be able to join in with a local festival whilst we were there and danced and sang along with the whole town in their town square with live music we were made most welcome.
The island is very beautiful and a hire car is a must there is so much to see and marvel at and after four visits were still finding more wonderful things to see.

Room Tip: Choose a Sea or side Sea view

This was a fabulous hotel. The gardens were exceptional. The staff helpful and friendly. This is not a holiday if you have children younger than 30......there were a lot of elderly people staying at this hotel. The good news is it meant that the pool was quiet and you didn't need to get up at 6am to "book" a sun bed.

A really great hotel set in fabulous gardens with exotic fruits, flowers & kitchen herbs with stunning views of the sea. This is our 2nd time at the quinta but 3rd time in Madeira. The staff are lovely & speak English & German. The gardens are better that some we paid to see with many reading spots. Rooms a bit dated with tiles cracked on floor & bathroom but it is roomy & having a kitchenette is really handy for making a few sandwiches/ snacks. It is about 17 E to get to the hotel from the airport but the busstop is just outside for trips. We had a buffet dinner one night for 30E in La Galeria but be warned vegetarian has not caught on here, so even with salads you have to watch for meaty bits! This is just the way it is so be on your guard if you are on a gluten free diet so they will for example add a bit of pasta to the menu! It would be pricy to eat in the hotel all the time but there are many bakery cafes just outside with good cakes, coffees, snacks, soups, so pop out. Fantastic tours, including walking on high peaks,directly by minibus from the hotel or a tour operator 5 minutes from the hotel.
We will be back, to enjoy the peace, soon I hope on this wonderful island!

Room Tip: Higher up for better views
