We have really enjoyed our Honeymoon. The Quinta do Furao is a beatiful Hotel, really good located directly at the ocean. We have had a really nice double room with a spectacular view on the ocean and the landscape. The restaurant is imazing, super nice food and wines (local) and a wonderful location directly at the ocean. The staff is very helpful and always available. We had a great time on the Island Madeira and we will come back ....

We stayed for five days at the hotel and booked half board. The Quinta is located in a fantastic environment, surrounded by vineyards, fields, and a stunning steep coast. Everything is very well kept and looked after. The whole atmosphere was very friendly, all staff members were committed, very nice and helpful. The rooms nicely furnished, the beds with wonderfully hard matrasses. We slept deep and relaxed, could make tea and coffee after waking up since the facilities were there, the good night lady checked in the evenings that enough tea and coffee was available. The half board menu was delicious, being served at the restaurant (with a stunning view again) roughly three minutes away from the hotel buildung.
Quinta do Furao is one of the best hotels we've experienced. We will definitely come back

Room Tip: Seaside rooms offer an absolutely amazing view over the steep coast

We had stayed 1 week at Madeira but only for 3 days at Quinta Do Furao. These 3 days had been the best of our hollidays. It is a realy perfect hotel at a very beautiful place and we want to come back again.

My wife and I stayed briefly at Quinta Do Farao last summer as part of an independent "package" walking holiday. We enjoyed our stay and the locality so much that we decided to return again for five nights under our own steam. From booking directly on line and then by email making final arrangements for collection from the airport right through to final check out I cannot praise the staff and hotel enough - we had a marvellous time, were so well looked after and felt so very welcome both by the hotel and the local people of Santana that we will definitely return again. We were fortunate to be in residence on a Sunday evening when our half board dinner was served in the garden with a typical folk dance group playing, singing and dancing. We will remember this evening for ever, from the excellent food and wine through to the 30 year old Madeira wine with some of the staff later in the "pub" - so friendly and happy.

The views from the hotel are stupendous and the countryside around about glorious allowing varied walks direct from the hotel and with mountain and levada walks just a few mins away by car or taxi (and even the local bus).

Food and service in the restaurant is world class and the rooms very comfortable with tremendous views.

The hotel facilities are good with all you need for a relaxing happy and peaceful break.

Thanks for a memorable visit to Santana - we will come to Quinta Do Faroe again and again ......

Room Tip: Ask for view of sea with mountains (and balcony)

I have stayed at various hotels in Madeira, in the Uk and elsewhere around the world and rate this hotel as providing the best hotel experience we have ever had. We return to this hotel every year for a few days during our 2 weeks holiday at our timeshare in Funchal.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but we like one with a sea view.

We have just stayed for 4 days at Quinta Do Furao, after one week at Reids (perfect of course!) and two days in Porto Moniz. What a wonderful experience we had at Quinta Do Furao!! We were amazed from the moment we arrived unthil we left. This is one of the places which is rare and hard to find, that has a soul! Everyone working there is proud of what they do, and I think that's what gives the place a soul!

There is no stress, everyone is friendly and warmhearted, doing more than one can expect! Our room was large, very clean and the terrace was perfect. The breakfast had lots of choises including healty stuff that I like! We felt so welcome! And dinner was fantastic, not only the view! We were so suprised to find such a great restaurant in Santana, and with so good food and great local wines!! We had all our dinners and one lunch there at our stay. We also got to know some of the other guest at one of the dinners held amoung the wines outside!

Santana is close to many walks on Madeira and at good choice for a place to stay on the north coast. You can really see the difference between the south and the north these days, due to lack of rain and the fires on the south coast. Driving was easy and we got to see the montains, the forest and even walking along the cliffs..... Everything was green and flowering, and it was nice and warm, so we will definitely go back!!

Quinta do Furao is an excellent hotel for relaxing in the north of Madeira. Our room was very clean with a nice view to the Atlantic. The breakfast was great, the service friendly and excellent. The restaurant has a fine terrace. They offered many gastronomic specialities.
