DO NOT VISIT THIS HOTEL. Because if you do, you will never want to go home again. The hotel is perfect for a restful holiday. The rooms and public areas are all beautifully appointed, and it is always very quiet, even though it is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Funchal. The best aspect however is the...

The whole place was very clean and we were greeted with smiles from all the staff. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and included cooked options too. We had three evening meals at the Quinta, the...

We have just spent the past 7 days at this hotel, mainly based on the good reviews on Trip advisor which we use frequently.
