We all had a great time at Quintinha Sao Joao. I travelled with my family and my parents. We arrived late and a bit tired but felt straight at home and very welcomed from the moment we booked in. As mentioned in previous reviews the place is excellent because of the beautiful building/ furniture but mainly because of its very...

Just stayed for one week in this hotel, Very nice place, location is not in the best area, and the hotel does seem a little hemmed in by other buildings, however once inside the gardens are nice and quiet and the hotel is the same. I stayed in a junior suite which was a hallway, a basic lounge and a...

We stayed here end of October. The hotel is fabulous and the price of our stay was very reasonable! Rooms are very large and are spotless. It was about 10 mins from town which was perfect. The pools and bars were a plus and we used these regularly. We didn't want to come home and we have already recommended this...

The Sao Joao is difficult to pigeon hole but I would describe it as a colonial house that has been sympathetically converted to a hotel (43 rooms/suites) and modernised in a way that you don't even notice we had a standard room with a balcony (2nd floor) and it was very comfortable, if I was being very picky I would...

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...
