“Simply superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a superior panoramic view room, on the top floor (rm 307) definitely a good choice as the views were stunning - the beautiful gardens with the ocean beyond. This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing and pampered stay - not a place to bring children, although there are facilities, but I wouldn't feel comfortable breaking the peace and quiet! The staff were, without exception, courteous, helpful and happy. Special mention for Lui and his amazing cocktail - the Lui Lui :-) The pool is beautiful and amply warm enough to swim on a sunny February day. Location is excellent - a nice downhill stroll into Funchal and you can get a bus back (number 15) if you don't fancy the steep walk, although that earns you a cocktail! We would recommend that you ask the hotel to order a taxi from the airport for you, and ask for Aldo - a really lovely local man - he will tell you all about Madeira, and for a reasonable fee he will take you around the island for the day, stopping at some 'off the beaten track' places and making a very relaxing day out. What more can we say, exempt when can we go back?!

We returned for our second year to the Quinta Jardins do Lago and what a good decision it was. What a delight. Hotel is beautifully presented, helpful and friendly staff, wonderful gardens with an elegant pool. Very good food, an excellent chef. It is rare for us to revisit a holiday location but this is an exception. We shall continue to return.

Quiet, clean Hotel set in amazing gardens. Friendly and helpful staff who are knowledgable and can assist with bookings and excursions.

Great breakfasts in the garden with panoramic views to the mountains, Funchal and the sea. Large spacious rooms with wifi and sat TV.

We arrived to be told our room had been upgraded - a delightful surprise. From that moment on Quinta Jardins do Lago proved why it deserves every one of its five stars. It's quiet, peaceful, unobtrusive but helpful and friendly staff made the stay perfect.
There was no problem dealing with special dietary needs. The rooms were spotless and the grounds immaculate
It is about a mile from the centre of Funchal - uphill. For us that was no problem but may be for anyone with mobility issues. Its location away from the city centre in beautiful grounds is what makes it so attractive.
We would stay there again without any hesitation

Our second visit to Maderia but first to the Quinta Jardins do Lago. From the moment we arrived for the whole of our two weeks stay the facilities, staff, food and surrounds were all all 5 Star. An exeptional experience of colonial service. As gathered from other guests comments. The hotel`s location does not favour pedestrian walking into Funchal. The courtesy bus would be better run to a regular time table (say hourly) without having to book the return trip. In saying that the cost of a Taxi from Funchal was 5 euros.

Room Tip: 3rd Floor Superior room was worth the addition cost. Very quite and a Sea view on a good day! AM s...

This was our second stay in JdoL, so it is now a 'tradition' that we will go every year. Returning guests get a bottle of champagne delivered to their room as well! There is really not much more to be added to all the positive comments, but one thing I noticed is that the hotel seems to listen to its reviewers. The only complaint I had last year was about the hairdryer (tube from the wall); this year there was a proper hairdryer in the wardrobe. I have read complaints about having to pay for cappuccino at breakfast, well, you don't now. Out of seven breakfasts one was a bit chaotic because there were a lot of demands for room service breakfasts, so they were a member of staff short. It was also Ana's day off...but, seeing we were sitting outside, in a fabulous garden, in February, I can't say I was overly bothered.
Luis the barman is one of the highest ranking cocktail makers in the world, and they are GOOD.
The strength of this hotel is its staff, there is a family atmosphere and the interaction with the guests is brilliant.

A historic quinta (country house) hotel, away from other touristy hotels and the bustle of downtown Funchal, set above the city in beautiful botanic garden quality grounds. Everything was of the best - service, food, rooms, surroundings, couldn't be faulted.
