We booked a trip to Madeira at the ultimate last minute but were relieved to find Quinta Mirabela was our first stop. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel at home with a glass of wine and delivery to our room. The staff are impressive with their ability to jump between languages and still make you feel important and appreciated. Once we got into our room, we were delighted with the size of it and the little touches like nicely presented bathrobes and pillows across the spacious bed. All of the rooms seem to have great views down to Funchal and the setting is amazing with loads of quiet reading and sitting places to hide in.
The pool area is lovely once you get used to the squeal of people sliding down the hill on toboggans and no longer feel the need to jump up and spy on them. Although the pool is quite cold, it's a much needed respite from the sun when it's blazing. We also used the jacuzzi which was a nice way to warm up before returning to your room. If you want to use the sauna or turkish bath just call reception 10 minutes beforehand so they can turn it on.
The breakfasts were another delicious treat with fresh coffee and hot milk as well as your choice of eggs - I had a delicious omelette each morning before my fresh fruit and yoghurt. Dinners were also great, I recommend the bread pudding and chocolate fondant for dessert - they were moreish!
The hotel can also organise a rental car at a cheaper price than we found elsewhere on the island. They are very helpful at giving you information to explore the area and the island.
We initially booked for 2 nights but extended our stay another night and after exploring more of the island, we returned for our final couple of nights because we felt so at home here.
Thanks to Ricardo and all of the staff who made our holiday fabulous.
