To the Management and Staff, it is very difficult to know who to put first because you all make a wonderful team to make a relaxing and enjoyable holiday, to be toned in the spa, arrange a sight seeing trip, enjoy a great meal in the restaurant or do nothing but chill out, what a choice. We have been many times and we will be back for more in February 2014.
Love and thanks to all
Tricia and Michael Mansfield

We spent a week here at the end of November for my birthday. I didn't want a high-rise, noisy hotel near the building sites in Funchal, but something special instead and this hotel fitted the bill perfectly. We had a quiet, spacious bedroom with a balcony overlooking the gardens. Cocktail hour in the lounge each night was a nice touch and the 'wine and dine' evening in the hotel restaurant was excellent - really good value. The rooftop pool was perfect for sitting at when the weather wasn't too good. I would definitely return to this hotel in future.

We stayed here for 4 nights last week and what a treat it was. The hotel is beautiful and the customer service excellent. My husband celebrated his birthday during our visit and he received a cake and sparkling wine from the hotel. I assume they noticed from my husbands passport which was looked at on our check in as we didn't mention it. We will definitely return to this hotel as there was nothing we could fault about it. The location is within walking distance of Funchal but if you are not walkers there is a courtesy bus or alternatively local buses.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are spacious and well appointed.

Loved the room and all the very nice and tasty surroundings, but a special word for the staff who where "there" smiling, helpful and discrete.
Truly recommend for couples that wish to stay in chic comfort.

An exceptionnal welcome and a great hotel with very courteous staff and excellent food at the restaurant.
I cannot think of any other place in Funchal to enjoy such a small and great hotel with all the services offered by standard international prestigious 5 stars hotel chains, but with something more, which is giving you the sensation you are home.
Congratulations again and best wishes for a bright future

In early November on arrival we received a kindly and warm reception. Manager welcomed us later with evening cocktails, made us feel very at home. This is a lovely friendly small individual hotel. We particularly enjoyed the warm inside and outside pools, even ping pong! My husband's birthday while there was kindly acknowledged, without prompting, a real and lovely surprise. Breakfast area in a sort of corridor was a little claustrophobic for us, but there is a bit more space at the rear if you keep going. Very good breakfast food selection. We really felt the benefit of this holiday and would love to return.

Having been to Madiera several times we decided to have my husbands 70th birthday celebrations at the Quintinha Sao Joao. We had family and friends to come out and stay with us at various times over a five week period, Organising this must have been a headache for the staff but all went smoothly, everybody enjoyed there stay and will be back. Staff are always helpful, food is well presented and breakfast set out well with staff on hand to replenish
