Funchal

This luxurious resort boasts a stunning setting in the old Palheiro Gardens amidst the foothills of Funchal. The resort is situated within easy access of the Palheiro Golf Course, and allows guests to explore the area with ease. Guests can enjoy a number of enthralling activities nearby. Comprising 3 buildings, this spectacular resort appeals to discerning travellers seeking a cocoon of peace and serenity away from the rest of the world. The hotel enjoys a spectacular architectural style, alluring visitors into the elegant surroundings of the lobby. Oozing regal splendour and opulence, the hotel is sure to impress. The guest rooms are sumptuously appointed, featuring luxury and decadence at every turn. The resort affords guests a seemingly boundless array of exciting facilities, ensuring that there is never a dull moment.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Beautiful setting in amazing gardens

Review by tgfdgh Geneva, Switzerland

This Relais & Chateaux Hotel & Golf is located on a hilltop with impressive views over Funchal. This beautiful property was first established in 1801 by the Count of Carvalhal, now owned by the Blandy family since the XIX century (120 hectares). Amazing well kept gardens and golf course, charming staff and excellent food.

A Lunch Which Was an Insult

Review by 2100Dogtraveler Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We went to visit the gardens at Palheiro, part of which are on the property of the Relais & Chateau hotel, Casa Velha do Palheiro. Being very familiar with the quality of Relais & Chateau, my wife and I were excited at the prospect of having lunch in the beautiful hotel and its very warm, elegant and lovely dinning room. The fact that we were the only people having lunch surprised us, but did not deter us...

IT SHOULD HAVE!!!!!!! Maybe its covid; maybe Relais & Chateau's standards have lapsed; maybe its just the old, tired, style of "fine dinning" in English style hotels, but the food was dreadful. My wife had a tasteless carrot soup to start with. She then had a salad that was uneatable, with dried-up old, wilted greens and lacking the ingredients as described in the menu. I first ordered the veal but the waiter came back and said it was not available so I ordered the beef. The meat was tough and tasteless. The sauce was simply oil with no taste. I am certain that the mushrooms and all of the other vegetables on the plate, came out of a can. Out of politeness we paid the bill (over 70 Euros) and left. It may be a wonderful place to stay, but do not eat there.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful Quinta with amazing gardens

We stayed one night in this beautiful Quinta but wished we stayed longer. The service was warm and efficient, food was good and the gardens were amazing world class. Not cheap but massively less than Reid's and so great to be up in the hills above Funchal
