TripAdvisor Review

Amazing boutique hotel with great food, stunning views and such friendly staff

Review by HMDunne Brecon, Powys

We travelled as a family group with 3 rooms. We were booked into superior rooms overlooking the pool, but these could not be provided due to C19. However, Victor was so accommodating explaining the situation and the hotel offered to cover our drinks with our DB&B package as compensation...

This more than made up for the switch and our rooms, 301,302 and 302 had stunning views over the terrace to the open sea. It has to be said Quinta Mirabela must have some of the best views on the Island. The restaurant menu is impressive offering local dishes, lots of fish, and a pasta menu. The restaurant team make your dining experiences so special, with their attention to detail, such friendly manner and can't do enough for you attitude. Marco, Daniel and Nuno are as much an "entertainment team" as they are restaurant team. We laughed with them all week and they made all of our family feel fully included and special. I can highly recommend the mussels and for something different the scabbard fish with banana! Breakfast is buffet style with hot freshly cooked options, including pancakes and omelettes. The location of the hotel is perfect to watch the daily passing of the traditional basket rides, the hotel shuttle bus takes you into town and a trip up in the cable car is so worth it. Our rooms, were well equipped, except for a tea tray but the available from the bar. All were cleaned daily with toiletries and soft towels and dressing gowns. Town is lovely to wander around with lots of outdoor dinning options, wander the lanes through the old town and admire the door artwork. The market is also worth a visit. We asked Sara and Tanya the reception team to help us with various queries and telephone calls and again this this did with a smile and lovely manner. It just leaves me to say that we would all highly recommend Quinta Mirabela and only wish we had longer!! We will be back - thank you all x

TripAdvisor Review

Lovely place where the people there were so helpful.

Review by jhBrazil Bedford, United Kingdom

What a lovely place. Highly recommended.

It may appear to be tucked away up a hill but this is actually one of its endearing features as it made you go and look for a local café to converse with the locals and eat the local delicacies...

It is also sited next to the 2km toboggan run which not only peaks your interest but prompts you into having a go yourself, GREAT FUN.

Wander down the hill to the harbour admire the lovely park, artisanal shopping, restaurants, etc... and then take a 2km cable car up to Monte to visit the Botanical Gardens and the impressive Church. It all adds to the experience whilst you capture memories. Or take a Catamaran whilst watching the Whales and Dolphins to irradicate any stress you may have brought with you. Alternatively take a trip around Blandy's to sample some of the famous Madeiran wine.

The 'staff' were so helpful in regards to to giving knowledge, printing off Boarding Passes, helping with day trips, arranging transfer buses, help us book the Spa, Sauna, Gym and Turkish steam room. I must give a special mention to Rui, Nuno and Daniel in the restaurant who made us feel exceptionally welcome whilst also delivering wonderful Nouvelle cuisine to out table.

In reality there was so much more, so go and get involved you won't be disappointed.

Many Thanks from Patrick and Janine for making this a wonderful stay in a lovely place on a gorgeous Island.

OBRIGADO!!!!

Best terrace view!

Review by Compass37787892837 Bucharest, Romania

The service was impeccable, and the food was great. The breakfast was varied, with a good selection of breads, cheeses, meat and fruit. But the most amazing part was the terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Funchal itself! The view was unparalleled, pairing well with the cool mountain air

Wonderful boutique 5-Star hillside Hotel overlooking Funchal.

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home - not least due to the genuinely warm reception that Manuela gave us. She spent time with us explaining details relating to our 7 day stay there and nothing seemed to be a problem to her. The hotel could not be faulted - The premises were spotless and well presented with quality fittings and decor ; We stayed half-board and were pleasantly surprised with the high quality and variety of food - truly top-end restaurant standard. Last but not least - like any business, it's only as good as the the quality of the staff that they employ and once again Quinta Mirabela proved exceptional in this aspect.

Fabulous hotel

Review by Olibongo Poulton Le Fylde, United Kingdom

This hotel is on the steep slope where you do the basket ride down the street in Funchal. Therefore it’s not good if your not fit and mobile. Having said that it is really the most wonderful hotel! They provide a shuttle bus down into town three times a day and a bus back too...

The staff are absolutely amazing. Sara and Luisa on reception were very helpful, and the restaurant staff were always happy and attentive, I’v never known a team of waiters that have worked so well together. Nothing was ever too much trouble☺️ Mark and I loved our stay here, thank you all. We had a wonderful week with you all x
