Our third visit to this hotel and as enjoyable as ever. The majority of the other guests we spoke to were also on repeat visits. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the bedrooms comfortable and very generously sized, the lounges elegant and peaceful and the breakfasts tasty and varied. We mostly went out in the evenings but on the...

We have recently returned from a week's stay over Christmas/New Year 2017. We have stayed at this hotel 6 times now but always in the spring or summer in the past.

We stayed 7 nights over New Year's at the Quintinha Sao Joao and felt very comfortable. With 42 rooms it is in this hotel very familiar; the staff is always friendly and very helpful. From the room you can see little from the city and from the sea, as in front of the hotel there are large, dense trees. The...

Lovely small hotel set in beautiful gardens for quiet adults, a delight after a full flight with no fewer than five screaming babies. Spacious rooms - we had a lovely balcony too, and asked for a quiet room and got it. The only noise was from the early morning door-slamming brigade who were out in force during our stay. Wifi...

Good location - easy walking into town centre. Spacious bedrooms. Very pleasant public rooms. Nice gardens. Most acceptable food. But best of all wonderful friendly staff. We were there for New Year and were able to view the spectacular New Year firework display from the roof of the hotel next door. Unforgettable!
