Hotel Quinta Bela Sao Tiago
Ranked #40 of 88 Hotels in Funchal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Spent the week before Easter in this hotel. We had room 003 which is on floor -1. If you want a decent view ask for 1st or 2nd floor with sea view. We were upgraded free on arrival to a pool view from a land view. Breakfast was good although similar each day, if you ate after 9.00 am items had ran out and had to be restocked, the staff seemed unhappy and under pressure. When we wanted the bar during the day we had to search for staff to serve us, bar snacks were good. We did not have evening meals in the hotel as there was no choice and it seemed expensive at around 40 euros per person for 4 courses.
The hotel is in the old town within easy walk of many restaurants but it is a steep short walk or a long steady slope back. The hotel was quiet and clean and has plenty of room inside and out.
There is a free jacuzzi, sauna and gym which were hardly used.

Room Tip: Sea views are a must overlooking the harbour.

We have just spent a week her and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is perfectly located on the edge of the Funchal old town. An aperitif and a meal are just a stroll away. Staff are most helpful and cheerful. Our room was most comfortable and well serviced. Breakfasts were excellent. An afternoon by the pool is most relaxing. We shall stay there again.

Stayed: March 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights organised by Jules Verne. We had room 101 which was very large and airy with a balcony with a sea view overlooking the pool area. We were traveling with an elderly friend who had a smaller twin room with a balcony 2 doors down from us. All the staff were helpful and friendly, our room was well appointed and clean. You need to ask for a kettle which was brought to us very quickly. We had food on the veranda at lunchtime and service, choice and food were good. At breakfast (buffet style) there was a good choice of cold and hot food, and fruit. dining room was clean and well appointed, the bar area was medium sized but there was a very large veranda area to sit. We had one evening meal at the hotel which was excellent as was the service (thank you Lucia and Fabio). This was quite formal dining.
The hotel is well positioned for a short downhill stroll to the old town where there is an abundance of restaurants and bistros. A thoroughly pleasant stay in a lovely hotel and island.

Room Tip: 101 is very large with a sea view from the balcony, Situated on the left hand wing of the hotel.

We booked a room with a sea view and balcony at this Hotel and were very disappointed to be given a room overlooking the road and with no balcony. We were told that they had overbooked and that a sea view was not available. After telling them we were not prepared to accept the room offered they decided to send us up to a sister hotel which was a long way out of the main town. We went up to have a look and were surprised to find three German people in the same mini bus as us who had booked two sea view rooms which were also unavailable. We did not accept the room offered to us as the carpet was very worn out and stained and the hotel was much too far out. It was not what we had booked and paid for. We returned to this hotel and guess what!!! another German couple complaining that they had been transferred to another hotel and were not happy with it. I have to say the management were most unhelpful and very surly and no apology was offered other than a free meal for one night. At least the food was good. Our tour operator moved us to a different hotel the following day which was just down the hill and far superior.

Room Tip: You really need a south facing sea view room at this hotel.

We were at the Carnival Dinner here and were served third rate food, poor wine and NO floorshow that we paid for. The hotel were not interested in discussing a refund - so we have no option but to put a review here to warn future customers of what to expect. Sad but true

Stayed recently at this hotel near the old town of Funchal. 2 nights we spent in room 218 which was overlooking the road at the back of the hotel. This room was furnished well and very clean but was noisy each morning from about 6 a.m because of traffic. Not a pleasant view either We were moved and upgraded to a junior suite sea view room for the rest of our stay. (we had paid for a sea view room when we booked the holiday !).We loved this room which overlooked the swimming pool and Funchal bay. We could not see or hear the building works down on the sea front which was a big bonus.

There were toweling robes in both rooms,shampoo,bath foam, body lotion,tissues and shower cap, plus a small packet of cotton buds and cotton wool.

The beds were very comfortable and there was a a good supply of white towels.

Breakfast was fine and there were some changes each day in the food offered. Had dinner in the hotel twice but there was not much atmosphere and service was quite slow. Food was OK though but the portions were small. We preferred to eat out and enjoy the restaurants in the old town.

Yes I would return to this Hotel. I loved the location but there is the hill to climb on your return so it is not suitable for any one who has trouble walking.

Room Tip: Loved the sea view room.
