We called in during our walk around the gardens here. Which are really really pretty and as the climate up here is cooler it was a nice relief from the heat of the town. The hotel itself though was a little tired and since most of the time it is in cloud being this high up then it wouldn't be...

This hotel is one of the most expensive on the island .it's poorly located in the hills of the island which means you have to rely on expensive cabs everyday to get into town .the cab costs €15 euros one way the cable car is €10 one way but finishes at 5:30. The hotel does have a very limited bus...

If you enjoy staying in an ultra-modern rabbit hutch, then this won't suit you. If you want to be ideally placed for noisy traffic and multi-storey car parks then stay away! If, on the other hand, you enjoy fine gardens, appreciate tastefully appointed interiors, and are happy to brave the car drive up to Monte, this is a great place...

We stayed on a B&B package for a week and the first thing to understand is that this hotel is most definitely NOT 5-star, at least by UK standards. The reception area is lovely but all of the rooms are behind and above this area, and have a feel of the 1980s about them. As other people have mentioned, beyond...

Quinta do Monte is a very nice located hotel attracting people with the good looking pictures. Unfortunately this hotel needs an urgent refurbishment. The carpets are old and stinky as well as the walls. We had breakfasts only which were awful. Such a shame for this wonderful location next to the gardens!

Honestly i was not convinced at the beginning but the view from the room is great and the people working there are just super cool. One detail... You have no wifi in the room so this is a very bad point. But the quality of the client service is fabolous thanks to armina from the reception!

Stayed for a week after getting a really good price at Hotels.com. As other reviewers have said, the hotel falls short of its 5 star rating, but at the price we paid it was adequate. Restaurant prices seemed excessive and we ate in town for less than half the price. Biggest disappointment was the absence of tea/coffee making facilities in...

The Quinta do Monte is now converted to a hotel which has an alpine feel to it. Laid out on terraces, there is a nice little gazebo cafe in the gardens and a nice view down into Funchal. The hotel is open to the public during the day. Access to the hotel grounds is up a short steep hill from...
