If like us you’ve travelled a reasonable amount and stayed in different hotels, whether on holidaying or through business, you get a feel for what you like to see and be in a hotel. We were on a belatedly wedding anniversary and enjoyed a wonderful upgrade to a premier suite, on the third floor and for us Quinta Jardin do Lago just about did it all. The Quinta is not too big not too small, 42 rooms I believe, just perfect in every aspect and detail. Previous reviewers have commented about the beautiful elegant appointed rooms, the botanical gardens, the wonderful restaurant, the pool area, all very, very, lovely and beautifully maintained with a colonial design and feel, the pictures on the website “do not” do it justice. For us there’s one thing that stands out above all with the Quinta Jardin do Lago “the people running and working in the hotel”. There are too many to mention by name but certainly every member of staff we dealt with or spoke to could not have been more pleasant, helpful, friendly or efficient especially all on reception. Everyone at some time on holiday will possibly have a problem or issue but when that’s dealt-with sincerely and dependently you really can’t ask for any more than that. This hotel doesn’t have a lively bar with music blaring and a TV showing the sports channel it has a quiet beautiful elegant comfortable lounge where you meet new friends and enjoy a chat and drink before or after dinner. We decided to eat in Funchal one evening and in the hotel the following evening, through our stay, and were never disappointed. The Hotel is happy to recommended and made reservations for you arranging you taxi etc. My wife we’ll always say never go back it will never be the same and let’s try and go somewhere different, each time we holiday. Having been once we’ll definitely return knowing it’ll be like visiting old friends and really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Many thanks all again, at Quinta Jardin do Lago, for a wonderful visit and a lovely stress free holiday see you all again soon.

Room Tip: We viewed several rooms all looking over the gardens on different floors and all look very nice.

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Madeira and had the pleasure of staying in Quinta Jardins do Lago. Having read the excellent reviews and having looked at the beautiful images on their website, we chose this hotel for a much needed break after a rather challenging year. Often the reality fails to match up to the photographs, but the beauty of this hotel way exceeded our expectations. The pool area is idyllic and the botanical gardens around the hotel, even this late in the season, were breathtakingly beautiful. It quickly became part of our routine to say 'hello' to Colombo, the giant tortoise, after breakfast every morning! We were on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the garden and the sea on the horizon. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean but, most important of all, the beds were blissfully comfortable with lovely soft piillows. Breakfasts are delicious and varied with almost anything you might wish to have for breakfast and it was delightful to be able to have breakfast either on the veranda or the garden patio. Dining in the Quinta Jardins do Lago is also excellent. The food is beautifully prepared and the waiting staff are very attentive. The only minor disadvantage was that the menu did not change during the week and it would have been good to have had some fresh choices during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the Reception staff who were informative and helpful and who assisted us by booking taxi tours of the island and lavada trips etc. The hotel is situated in the hills above Funchal nestled into the local community. The hotel offer a complementary shuttle bus to town several times a day, but it is easy to walk down the hill into the centre of Funchal. However, unless you are very fit, it is advisable to catch one of the numerous taxis for the return trip (cost about 5 Euros). I know we will be returning to Madeira and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else other than Quinta Jardins do Lago.

Room Tip: All the rooms here are beautiful and face south, but we feel a room on one of the higher floors will give a better view across the garden. It looks as though corner rooms may have a larger balcony and some of them had sun loungers rather than table and chairs (which is what we had).

It was a great experience to stay in this magnificent old Quinta set in its own botanical gardens. We were upgraded to a Junior suite in the old house and really appreciated the quality of the accommodation. The food was excellent, the staff freindly and helpful. The library and games room were very pleasant and the pool area was a most relaxing place to while away a few hours.
It all made such a pleasant change from the larger hotels. We would certainly hope to return.

Previous reviews of this hotel rightly tell the same story. The comfort of the rooms, the beauty of the gardens, the lovely pool and the helpfulness of the staff. I would only add one word. Accuracy. Whoever owns and runs Jardins do Lago had a very accurate eye of how things ought to be for a holidaymaker staying at an hotel. It is not fussy, pompous or over the top. It is simply just right in every respect. Full marks.

My partner and I are no stranger to travel, but this is probably our favourite hotel to date. Even before we arrived the team at Quinta Jardins were very helpful in arranging a room for us at relatively short notice. From the moment we arrived we received the most exceptional service - even stretching so far as to arrange a full itinerary of places for us to visit and things to do. The hotel is beautifully situated in it's own botanic gardens, the room was excellent, the food and general facilities equally so. My only regret is not staying for longer - will definitely be returning soon.
