quiet walking holiday for 2Posted Nov 7, 2015
Pros: Garden & restaurant Happy hour in the bar was great value
Cons: Smoking on the bar terrace wafted back into main bar area
Location: Can easily walk into town and more modest but acceptable restaurants nearby
Hired a car which was useful to get further than Funchal. Levada walks were fantastic

Couples hotel in a quiet settingPosted Oct 7, 2015
Pros: The setting, the staff and the swimming pool that we could properly swim in.
Cons: Wifi was a bit quirky at night and some heated showers at the pool
Location: Quiet setting but well situated close to many restaurants. The owners took great care with the gardens with at least four gardeners working away,,
Spent two weeks in this quiet hotel set in beautiful gardens. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The weekly receptions in the library were a nice touch too as it meant you met other gets and then spoke with them during the ensuing week.

cadre buccoliquePosted Sep 1, 2015
Pros: L'écoute et le sens du service.
Location: FUNCHAL : Musées pour tous les centres d'intérêts. Descente en traîneau (immanquable !), marchés, fruits, bolo de caco, cuisine locale.
Nous avons tout apprécié : tant le cadre, que l'accueil, le service, la restauration. Notre chambre était très confortable. Nous insistons tout particulièrement quant aux personnels ; que ce soient les femmes de chambre, le personnel de l'accueil ou encore celui du service petit déjeuner et déjeuner : nous ne pouvons nous en faire que des éloges. Vous souhaitez un hôtel calme, très fleuri, avec un superbe petit déjeuner, une restauration de qualité, un personnel à votre écoute, toujours souriant et disponible : c'est ici à Quinta de Casa Branca. C'est bien un des rares hôtels où je retournerais avec plaisir. Notre bonjour à Antonio et à tout le personnel...

A very comfortable and classy hotelPosted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
An outstanding hotel with extremely comfortable rooms and beautiful gardens. The pool is very large and the pool facilities excellent. We enjoyed breakfast. The only letdown was the food at the pool which was very poor. Horrid steak rolls and ice cream even worse. This need management attention.

Beautiful hotel on a beautiful islandPosted Aug 1, 2015
Cons: No, struggling to think of anything.
Location: This is the hotel district so within a short walk you have plenty of restaurants.
We stayed in the main building having a room under reception and opening out onto the gardens. The setting is lovely and peaceful. The room was spacious and room service provided everything we asked for. Walking down the garden for breakfast every morning was a joy and it was very pleasant to have a freshly cooked meal. We ate in the dinner restaurant once and had a very enjoyable meal. We enjoyed a few happy hour drinks in the deck bar before walking the local area in the evening and the view from there is delightful. It is hard to fault this hotel - they even laid on a welcome drinks party. The pool area is attractive and quiet, a great place to relax and the heated pool luxurious. Walking into town takes 30 minutes and on the way back the last part is uphill. It can pay to use the odd taxi. Funchal is interesting, the coastal walk is nice and a drive round the island offers one some great views and pretty villages, but the roads are a little demanding. If you like dolphins then excellent trips are readily available. Finally, play the two golf courses, the views are spectacular, but only walk them if you are fit.

first visitPosted Jul 17, 2015
Pros: Only had b&b. The pool/ service by staff/ location/
Cons: On the last day our flight was mid morning & breakfast a little rushed as you start at 7.30 it would help if you started 15 or 20 mins earlier
Lovely place to stay,& go to many places on the isle. Hire car was a bonus & able to do this. People very friendly & helpful, good time being there.

Wonderful hotel do not hesitate to bookPosted Jul 7, 2015
Pros: The setting especially the gardens and breakfast facillities. The staff who were always helpful and appeared to enjoy what they do.
Cons: I cannot think of anything!
Location: A bit out of Funchal perhaps a 30 minute walk uphill but plenty of taxis if required in the town. Lots of excellent restaurants nearby
This is possibly the best hotel we have had the pleasure to stay in. The hotel is set in the grounds of an old house estate (Casa de Blanca) within wonderful gardens which are immaculately kept. The hotel is spotless and the rooms very comfortable. Breakfast is superb with a whole range of exotic local produce which can be taken on a deck in the sunshine in the wonderful garden area. The staff are excellent and work together as a team to enhance the experience and they actually appear to all enjoy what they do.
