This was our second stay ay QdL - and we will return again. We were given a superior room with views over the sub-tropical gardens - a lovely large room, comfortable beds and a view. All the staff are excellent - we were greeted back by everyone, even the waitressed in there pool area - now that is attention to detail!
Breakfast offers one of the widest choices we have come across for some years - excellent choice of tropical fruit and juices - coffee/tea (my wife likes Earl Grey) - cakes and pastries - plus your own personal choice of eggs (boiled, fried, poached, omelette etc) all cooked as you like it - and this to accompany a good choice of bacon, mushrooms etc. Certainly a breakfast to keep you going all day!!
The gardens area treat and the pool area is just the place to relax and take a small snack if needed.
We had one table d'hôte meal - very nice cooking and presentation. We noted that this year the gardens below the pool area are now used for growing vegetables - what a fantastic soil - anything will grow here.
The hotel is in a quiet area - but there is a hotel bus 3 times/day down to Funchal, but we found that we could rely on the number 15 and got a number of trips on our rover ticket - it is worth it to see more of Funchal. I suppose you have a choice of being closer to town and accepting a "noisy" area.
We will return to QdL in 2014 - could there be a better positive comment?
