Very friendly staff. My parnter asked for a light matras because of my pregnancy. My bed was indeed profided with a softer smaller matras on top of the other matras. Lovely garden gives peace and rest. Very large rooms with bathtub, bathrobes, shower in bathtub, large beds. Breakfast is buffet, not so large as in big hotels but cosy and the weaters will ask you if you want a fresh homemade hot breakfast (eggs, sausages, toast...). The aproach is personal and pleasant. We didn't order a room with balcony because it was more expensive but we did got a room with balcony without any surcharge.

Room Tip: Ask a room with balcony. Beds can be hard but you can contact them with the question for an extra s...

Thank you very much indeed for your positive feedback and for sharing your thoughts with TripAdvisor.

We were pleased to be able to upgrade your room to one with a balcony. Unfortunately this is not always possible for obvious reasons.

We are glad that you found breakfast to your liking and made the most of our freshly cooked hot à la carte choice.

We wish you every happiness with your forthcoming baby and hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you all back one day.

Yours sincerely

We have just returned from our second stay at Quintinha São Joao and all the positives we reported in our review of March 2013 remain the same. This is an excellent, peaceful, relaxing small hotel with friendly, personal service and great rooms and facilities, all offered at very reasonable prices.

I have just returned from my 4-day stay at Quintinha Sao Joao. I can only recommend this hotel because of the cosy atmosphere. The members of staff are very friendly and nice, professional but not formal, customer - oriented and helpful. The hotel is very relaxing and peaceful: the ideal place if you need to detox from a very busy life in a city like London.

Even if I was there by myself, I have never felt alone as I was feeling connections. Last but not least, some members of staff speak foreign languages very, very well.

Thank you all for having made my stay so good!

Thank you so much for showing your support for the Quintinha de São João and for your very kind comments.

We so want you to feel “at home” and are delighted that you found our staff very friendly and nice, professional but informal. Travelling as a single passenger may sometimes be lonely but it will certainly never be the case at the Quintinha!

Had an excellent Romantic Two day break with 3 course meal and wine included also spa treatment per couple, On arrival was shown to room by receptionist great room very large with separate sitting area. Full body massage with Orange oils this was excellent and very relaxing. I booked it for my wonderful husbands Birthday, on arrival we had a Bottle of Bubbly and fruit complementary. The room we were given 212 is right next to the indoor swimming pool on the roof terrace which was good. We had a excellent meal in the hotel Restaurant, and all the waiting staff were great and very friendly. The day of my wonderful Husbands Birthday we also had a Cake and bottle of Bubbly given to us, all in all a most excellent stay. Diane Bennett Faja Da Ovelha

Dear Mrs. Bennett,

We are delighted to hear that your Romantic Package was so successful. What a lovely present for your husband and how nice that you were able to share it with him!

We are glad that the bubbly and cake went down well. Many congratulations.

Yes, we agree with you about the package. It gives you a chance to sample all the hotel’s facilities with special emphasis on the Spa and the Restaurant.

Fajã da Ovelha is not far away from Funchal so we do hope that you will call in and see us when you are in town.

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends after staying a week in a villa up North of the Island.
Hotel is a little gem, beautiful gardens to sit in and read and have a quiet drink, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool. Swam in the indoor pool which was lovely and warm and very welcoming.

We had a really nice bedroom with a balcony and could see a little bit of the view through the trees. Bedroom was large and very spacious with a seating area at one end.

Breakfast is wonderful with excellent variety and choices. Enough to set you up for the day!
After breakfast we caught the hotel's shuttle bus in Funchal town. Easy to walk, but it's downhill and not good for my husband's knees. Taxi back was about 5 euros, again saves walking up the hill.

We ate in the restaurant the first night after our happy hour in the bar, a nice way to start the evening! Meal in the restaurant was really nice and beautifully presented. We could have eaten here every night but wanted to sample other restaurants in Funchal town itself.

The two restaurants in Funchal I can recommend, one is LONDRES and the other O Tapassol in the old town. There is also a cafe/bar literally just down the road from the hotel and we had lunch there one day. It doesn't look like much from outside, but the food is home cooked, fresh and is excellent. The fish was fantastic and so cheap. Go upstairs though. Locals eat here so that says it all.

Back to this hotel......I have to say that the staff are wonderful. They make you feel so welcome and at home. All the staff we met were really nice from the bar, restaurant, breakfast and reception. Well done to you all.

We have been to Madeira 3 times but the first at this hotel. On my next visit, I will look no further than Qunitinha Sao Joao, it has everything I look for in a hotel to make my stay comfortable and relaxing.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and ask for a room on a high floor for a better view overlooking the to...

This was our second visit and such a delight to find many of the staff still there and remembered us. The hotel is small and very welcoming and an excellent local bus will get you up the hill in no time at all. The courtesy car is also available. The food in the hotel is very good and beautifully presented - even the fruit left in our room was sliced beautifully. The spa is so relaxing with many treatments available. The indoor pool so clean and warm. Rooms are spacious very clean and very comfortable beds. When we go back to Madeira we will definitely go back to this lovely hotel with staff who smile and are so happy to look after you. Taylors from Aberdeen

Room Tip: Been in 2 rooms and both good - 1st floor is nearer the pool.
