Always a gamble booking a hotel but this one was great. We chose it because of its character and its location in the Old Town. We had B and B, partly on the advice of other reviewers, and it was definitely the right thing to do. During our week I did not notice anyone eating in the restaurant in the evenings, so had we done so it would have been a bit sad!
Coffee not brilliant, but we soon learned where to go in the town (Mel e Canel just behind the rear entrance of the Anadia shopping centre, where you can get an espresso and a cake for 1€)
Breakfasts very good and not the same every day either: a wide choice of breads, hot food, fruit
Beds HUGE, rather firm

This really a lovely hotel extremely well run with great friendly staff, beautiful rooms, splendid views and a great location. We stayed B&B and there a lot of very good local restaurants within 10 mins walk downhill; a bit a a drag but up the hill but achievable as long as you reasonably fit. Turn right out of the hotel, go down the hill and there is a great local bar with good food overlooking the sea and town; saw staff from the hotel having coffee there! All in all one of the best hotels we have stayed and well worth its rating. A few minor niggles ; TVs and showers need updating and wi-fi should be all over the hotel and totally free with no limits ( you get 24 hrs free for stays up to 6 days and 48 for longer stays)

We stayed at the Quinta Bela in April this year, having chosen it primarily for its location so close to the Old Town, the part of Funchal with the most character. It is also conveniently close to the centre of town, market and cable car. The hotel itself has bags of character and stunning views over Funchal and the harbour from the sea view rooms and pool terrace. Staff are generally very helpful and the ambience is laid back. Rooms are simply furnished and the shutters and black out curtains ensure a good night's sleep, if, like me, you need to block out the light.

I would return to this hotel but on a BnB basis, not half board as we did this time. The restaurant lacked atmosphere and the food just wasn't 4 star standard no matter how many ta-raa! flourishes accompanied it! and as there are so many good restaurants in the Old Town nearby, you are spoiled for choice. You are also charged for jugs of tap water at the hotel which I think is simply unacceptable. Breakfast is good, however, and the terrace a great place to have a drink and enjoy the views.

Room Tip: Ask for 3rd floor if you want the best sea and harbour views.

Back for the fifth year running and immediately made welcome by all the staff who remembered us.
Nice rooms;fantastic breakfast and tip top service. Great base for the est of the island generally and Funchal in particular.
"Sundowners" on the terrace are a must

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view

Like others on Trip Advisor we arrived at the Quinta to be greeted by the information that our rooms (2) were unavailable and for the first three nights, of our severn night holiday, we were to be transferred to a sister hotel some distance from the Quinta. We took this information badly as we had chosen the Quinta specifically because of it's location and proximity to all our favourite restaurants in the Old Town, but nothing we said was going to change the situation so we were forced to accept the transfer.
The reception staff tried valiantly to improve our demeanour, but having been up since 3.30am travelling we weren't in a mood to be cheered up. The sister hotel, Quinta Das Vistas is however a 5 star hotel and the rooms were beautiful. We were given a free four course meal for the four of us and taxis to and from the Old Town each night at the hotel's expense. When we returned to Quinta Bela Sao Tiago we were also offered half board free of charge , which we declined as we had already booked restaurants in the Old Time, but accepted free lunches instead. After the 5 star treatment the rooms at Bela Sao Tiago did seem a bit lacking but the location of the hotel is everything in our opinion, but you must get a sea view on the upper floor if possible ( we did eventually!!!)
We got over our initial anger quickly, as we were determined to enjoy ourselves and we did have a wonderful holiday. It is obviously a corporate decision to overbook a popular hotel in the chain to boost occupancy at sister hotels, with the reception staff left in the position of facing irate holiday makers. The heavily pregnant lady on reception worked very hard to make us happy and if she reads these reviews I would like to thank her for her efforts and hope that all goes well for the birth of her son in January.

Room Tip: Upper foor sea view or if you can afford it, a junior suite on the roof
