My husband and I have just returned from a week at this hotel which we booked with Secret Escapes, our package was on a half board basis. The hotel is very good, the public rooms are furnished beautifully in keeping with the period of the building and the bedrooms are very spacious with a separate seating area and nice balcony...

We have just returned from a week at Quintinha Sao Joao and can honestly say it was "just what the doctor ordered!" From the moment we arrived, the staff were professional and made us feel so welcome. For me, the best thing about the hotel is its unpretentious, five star quality situated on a compact site. Everything is provided and...

This was our third visit to the hotel. We could not have been made more welcome if we had been one of the family! This really is one of the most friendly hotels ever. All of the staff give 110% of their time to make guests stay as enjoyable as possible and it is a credit to the management for...

On our second visit to this hotel we found it is still just as brilliant as ever. The hotel is situated a fairly short walk from the town centre in an extremely quiet location. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. We stayed in a large double room overlooking the very quiet garden. The outside seating (inside seating is available...

My wife and I stayed at the Quintinha Sao Joao for 10 days in April to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and it really was the perfect place to stay to enjoy the beautiful island of Maderia and explore everything that Funchal has to offer. The Hotel has a very traditional "colonial" feel to it with lovely marble finishes and...

Extremely delayed review here! We visited last August for a week and had a fantastic time. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff, who seem to have a knack for knowing exactly when to offer assistance and when to leave you to your own devices. The area is an old colonial house (I think) and has beautiful...
