I'd just go to Madeira for this hotel.Posted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: Garden!!! Large room (not all rooms are large but most are huge!) Kitchenette Pool Wine tasting evening (beautiful madeira wine selections)
Cons: Thai Lounge was a little disappointing. It was not authentic Thai, but more of inspired, and we didn't find it as our cup of tea.
Location: We've met the most charming waiter and had fantastic meal at A Lareira restaurant just min from the hotel. Central restaurant also superb for meat!!
I love this place!! The hotel is set in the middle of a well maintained botanical garden, and is always filled with flowers, and truly beautiful. It has everything you need for relaxing, peaceful holiday, and staffs are always friendly and helpful. Hotel itself is a little on the old side but is nicely kept and you are guaranteed to have a pleasant stay there. We have stayed at Quinta Splendida Wellness & Botanical Garden for much needed holiday + my birthday. We stayed there for just over a week, for total relaxation and maybe to catch a little sun. I had stayed there on my own previously and really loved the setting and the spa, and insisted that my partner would join me this time. We have booked double occupancy apartment, which came with a large lounge, kitchenette and balcony. Kitchen facility is a MUST for me, as I like to cook light breakfast/lunch so we can go out and enjoy local cuisine for dinner. There is a large supermarket nearby, too. We weren't expecting any wifi access from the room, which is not part of the room, but we could sort of catch it if we stand on the balcony, so we were quite pleased. Hotel gave us a nice treat for my birthday extra when we booked to dine at La Perla, the food was fab, too. We were rained in quite a bit during our stay but were happy to find a pool table and a mini-gym that were free of charge. We also enjoyed our visit to spa, the treatments are not cheap but are really good, and facilities are small but cosy and relaxing.

Beautiful setting, fabulous gardensPosted Jan 1, 2015
Pros: Beautiful gardens, friendly staff. Liked the spa as well if a bit overpriced.
Location: Canico is small but friendly. Funchal is easy bus ride away.
Stunning gardens, very well laid out so hotel rooms are low rise so doesn't feel like staying at huge hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. We were there over Christmas so hotel not full so the bars etc were quite empty. Ate out in Canico - small but ok. Fab bakery/coffee house next to hotel where we went for breakfast most days. Also get the bus into Funchal (goes every hour) by the bakery. Overall hotel was fabulous, Canico a bit quiet

Sehr schönes HotelPosted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: Die Gartenanlage und der Pool.
Cons: Das Frühstück könnte etwas abwechslungsreicher sein. Die Preise in den Restaurants im Hotel sind relativ hoch.
Location: Liegt im Zentrum von Canico mit Bars, Restaurants etc. Mit den Linienbus ist man schnell in Funchal. Levadawanderungen sind mit dem Taxi erreichbar.
Tolles Hotel, gut ausgestattete Zimmer in zentraler Lage Canicos. Gutes Frühstück, allerdings immer das gleiche Angebot. Das Hotel liegt relativ weit weg vom Strand (ca. 20 Minuten zu Fuß) Ansonsten alles top, ruhig, tolle Gartenanlage.

Enchanting and relaxing :)Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: The relaxed atmosphere, the garden with so many exotic plants and flowers which seemed to go on forever, the spa, the fact you can self-cater easily.
Cons: Nothing really, unless the staff could add more labels so you can identify more plants, trees.
Location: Canico is a small town with a church and a square, big Continente supermarket and the bakery next door to the hotel is good for breakfast rolls.
I only went over to Madeira for the equivalent of a long weekend, so I didn't plan to do much - just relax in the hotel and its grounds. For a short stay like this is absolutely perfect because you can really unwind - walk around the garden, smelling the flowers and looking at all the unusual trees and plants. Then there is the pool of course, which I didn't find so cold - if you ease yourself in, bit by bit! Then there are the beautiful views and the just fantastic spa, which is lovely and treatments very good. I liked that you are offered a choice of tea after your treatment and you then get to drink it reclining on a lounger out on their terrace overlooking the ocean! Just having a little apartment with the garden just outside, and a little terrace in front of it was lovely. I travelled alone but you feel totally safe there and it has everything you need. Canico too is a great little place with a good supermarket, pharmacy, bakery (next door), bank machines etc. The staff are really, really helpful and will provide any assistance or anything you need very promptly. Lots of cats wander about, particularly in the outside restaurant, but they are no bother unless you care to feed them (which is what they want!). They will suddenly appear and then disappear but are friendly.

Nice hotel on side of a hillPosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: The botanical gardens
Location: See overall review.
Hotel is nice with extensive botanical gardens but it is on a slope which would make it difficult to negotiate if a person has a walking problem. If you like walking there is no nice flat place to walk as the whole area is on a downward slope towards the cliffs so you are either walking uphill or downhill. There is nothing outside the hotel except a few shops so no points of immediate interest. If you want a few weeks of relaxation around the pool in the sun and nothing else, then this is the hotel for you. P.S Breakfast cost 14 euro each and its cheaper to go to a bakery just outside the hotel where you can get a filled croissant and coffee for 2.20 euro.

Fint hotell, med härlig trädgård och härlig pool.Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Trädgården med alla blommar, örter och allt grönt. Samt utsikten från poolområdet där man ser ut över Atlanten.
Väldig bra hotell med hjälpsam personal. Ligger en bit från havet, men det är inga stora avstånd på Madeira och för den som inte orkar gå finns taxi, buss och bra möjligheter att hyra bil. Vi gick ner till havet några gånger och som på de flesta ställen på Madeira erbjuder promenaden fina vyer och bra motion:)

Traumhafter botanischer Garten mit AusblickPosted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Der Garten
Cons: Siehe oben
Location: Das Hotel liegt im nördlichen, nicht touristischen Teil von Canico, der aber nicht sehr interessant ist. Unternehmen kann man dort eigentlich nichts
Gut geführtes Hotel, freundliches Personal in einem traumhaften botanischen Garten gelegen. Der Ausblick auf Meer und Berge ist angenehm, unser Zimmer war groß und hatte einen sehr großzügigen Balkon mit Meerblick. Lediglich der Parkplatz ist etwas eng. Das Essen war angemessen für ein solches Haus, die Getränkepreise waren allerdings etwas hoch. Insgesamt haben wir unsern Aufenthalt dort sehr genossen und würden uns bei einem erneuten Besuch auf Madeira ganz sicher dort erneut einquartieren.
