We really enjoyed this hotel. Very spacious, comfortable and unrushed. Staff were always helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fine, with champagne for those who wanted it. We found the seats in the not to our liking and wifi in the room intermittent. There is a 25 minute walk into town down a steep hill without...

We were due to stay at one of the group's sister hotels the Quinta Bela Sao Tiago for six nights as part of our Ramblers walking holiday to Madeira.

We were not staying at the hotel (have own accommodation on Island) but having visited it previously for drinks, we decided to book for Christmas lunch. The view over Funchal is spectacular. The hotel has a wonderful feeling of friendliness and opulence. Bruno (Assistant Manager of restaurant) was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and ensured a fabulous luncheon experience.

We have chosen Quinta Das Vistas Palace Gardens because of good reviews on tripadvisor - absolutely we didn't disapointed! Located on the hill with beautiful Funchal view, quiet neighborhood, gardens, classic architecture, helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are big enough, with balcons (our had city view), cleaned daily. We decided to get only breakfast option, which was everyday more...

Well positioned away from the hustle of the town but within easy reach of amenities - walking into Funchal takes 20 mins but with the hotel courtesy bus a trip into the centre was easy. Staff friendly and service good. Clean and comfortable throughout.

Having just returned from a wonderful week here I find it hard to relate to some off the other reviews I've read; all i can say is that we had a lovely stay... It is a relatively small hotel whose clientèle appear to be mainly middle aged (not unusual for Madeira) and as such is a quiet and peaceful hotel;...

4th hotel of 5 but not the best but it has something unbeatable which is not the horrible access to the hotel if you go by feet. It's up a very steep hill, and you have to chose the less dangeous way because you have no walking paths in the streets, so you can get hit by a car easily....

This is the fourth time we had stayed in this hotel. Prior to this recent stay, our last visit was in 2011. What a difference we noted. The standards we knew previously have changed significantly. Whilst management did address some of the issues we had during our eight day stay, our lasting impression is that the hotel is certainly not...
