The Quinta Mirabela was exceptional from the overall design, neighbourhood location away from the main tourist area of Funchal, the incredibly delicious breakfast and some of the best dinners I have ever eaten.
The property is endless in it's common areas which make this hotel seem large and uncrowded. And the view of the bay and the town is honestly quite surreal.
We travelled to Funchal right before the busy Christmas season and the hotel was nearly empty. We were treated to amazing service-how can you beat complimentary champagne on check-in and being seen to your room by the property manager?
The breakfast is included and delicious. Fresh fruit, delicious cheese, which I wish I knew the name of, and great coffee and service.
We stayed at the hotel for five nights and enjoyed most of the amenities including the shuttle service to town, the pool, sauna, spa, turkish bath, the restaurant on a few nights, the decks and back garden. We even enjoyed room service, many bottles of wine and spending time in the basement TV room reading magazines left by international travelers.
Funchal was a little sleepy the time of year we visited, but we did go to town and eat at a number of restaurants and did some shopping. We toured Blandy's wine, the pier, a few of the parks including the one at the top of the gondola-which I would highly recommend. We visited a few of the neighbourhood pubs including one just at the top of the hill from the hotel and the bakery at the bottom of the hill.
Ricardo was an amazing host as was all the staff. If you like to feel pampered and enjoy a small boutique hotel, you will absolutely love this property.
Do explore the neighbourhood, do negotiate the taxi fare with the drivers at the end of the hill and absolutely eat in the restaurant-the food is incredible and the setting is very romantic if you want it to be or great for the group. I obviously can't say enough...
Fantastic, worth every penny!
