Booked this hotel after reading reviews and was not disappointed. Set in beautiful grounds this is a gem of a place to stay. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We arrived before our rooms were ready but was personally shown around the grounds and advised that we would be found when our room was ready - which they did!...

This charming hotel is a 15 minute walk downhill to the old town. It is not in the popular resort area so nearby hotels are limited, but the hotel restaurant serves delicious food. They even have a Masterchef sitting on Friday nights which adds some entertainment to you dining experience. The hotel staff are very welcoming and breakfast served in...

All I can say is thank you to the various trip advisor reviewers who recommended this lovely hotel. Staying there was a completely relaxing experience. The guests were a real mixture and although at 42 I reckon I was on the younger side for the hotel, there were a few families - however it is probably more suited to adults....

Hotel is a smallish hotel about 10-15 walk from centre of Funchal. It is an older style 'low key' type of place...so nice bar, good buffet breakfast (but can also order full cooked)...and the dinner a la carte was nice as well. For me - had v good wifi - which is useful to keep an eye of work type...

Had a great time at this smallish hotel. This is not a modern "resort" hotel but a more traditional place set in its own small garden. Staff were helpful beyond all expectations when my wife arrived with an injured leg, and conjured up a wheelchair and walking stick and plenty of ice packs. Bar lunch menu excellent. Breakfast a choice...

We were influenced in our decision to stay at Quintinha Sao Joao by the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately we were rather disappointed; it didn’t live up to its reviews. After four previous holidays staying in Funchal, each time staying in a 5-star hotel, we would say that it does not meet the superior level of service...

Dear guest, Firstly we would like to apologise again for the problem with our outdoor swimming pool. It was necessary to carry out some minor maintenance work on the pool and unfortunately a greater problem was encountered. This was not so easy to resolve, thus making it necessary to shut off the outdoor pool for a time. We are sorry...

You will feel very welcome in this perfect little hotel that is family-run. Spacious rooms, great restaurant, nice bar area with terrace. Great breakfast, good lunch offers in the bar and a very wide offer of different styles in the restaurant. Good value for money. One pool area in the spacious garden, another one on roof top. Competent, friendly staff....
