Superb Holiday - a wonderful holiday base, the Quinta was just right for us. Travelled with Thomson's, courtesy minibus to the front door. Spacious reception area and a pleasant welcome. We'd booked a room with a balcony and it was well worth it. Lovely large room including 2 easy chairs, 2 large wardrobes, a safe (8 euros for the week)...

Just back from a four night stay at Hotel Quinta Da Penha de Franca. It was a return visit but this time we tried the Mar section of the hotel, down by the sea. This was a good choice as the views over the sea are lovely and it was extremely peaceful with only the sound of the waves to...

We have visited this hotel many times but normally opt for the superior rooms with balcony and partial sea view. However on this occasion we took advantage of a last minute cheap deal. Knowing the hotel as we do, we knew it would be well worth it. We were given a reasonable sized room in the old Quinta, with duel...

The good news. Brilliant staff. Interesting grounds. Good car parking. Now for the bad news. Enormous bedroom with many many loose floorboards (Room 4) Very dark, easily improved. Shower, not very well. Blankets Security to bedroom, pathetic. OK bits. Food could be more exciting Entrance hall, good but chairs difficult to doze in. Summary, over the past 30 or so...

Our 4th Christmas visit to this hotel. It ticks all the right boxes. Good location just out of town: well run: all the rooms are clean and tidy; good breakfast and 2 swimming pools. Good restaurants nearby. You can easily avoid the steep hill referred to by taking the lift down to the sister hotel and its a very flat...

We stayed at the Quinta Penha da Franca for the week before Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It's close to the Marina and a short walk to the town. It has its own gardens and swimming pools with excellent views over the harbour. The rooms were clean and well kept. The food was very good and there was...

We really enjoyed staying here. It had a fantastic location, with some wonderful restaurants close by and only a fifteen minute walk right into the centre of Funchal. What we really liked is that it is so close to the centre of Funchal, so we went to restaurants there but it is also close to some of the bigger hotel...
