    Peaceful characterful hotel

    This hotel is uphill from Ponta do Sol and, having arrived from Funchal by bus, we were prepared to walk what looks on the map like a couple of kilometres. However, we decided to take a taxi and were glad we did, as the journey by road is more like 6 or 7 kms. The taxi was 10eu, quite reasonable. At the hotel a very warm welcome from charming manager Feliks, who went out of his way to be helpful at all times. Beautifully situated old manor house in a peaceful rural location, with immense traditional character, well appointed rooms & fabulous views. Amazing value. Good buffet breakfasts in the attached restaurant, though we were disappointed that it was otherwise closed (perhaps out of season?) as we had no car. There are few local facilities apart from a cafe next door with limited menu. Nevertheless we enjoyed our peaceful days by the pool and a couple of pleasant levada walks accessible just up the hill. Our only criticism/suggestion is about the mention on the website of own quinta produce such as orchard fruit and honey, raising expectations of sampling home-produced foods. Sadly, not only was there no such produce apparent at breakfast but, as almost always these days, standard mass-produced fare such as plastic & foil servings of imported butter, jam and honey. What a shame! It would really enhance the customer experience and the reputation of a character rural hotel like this to offer locally sourced ingredients.

    À découvrir

    Hôtel dans une ancienne maison de maître, ambiance chaleureuse, beaucoup d'espace, un salon par étage, piscine, très calme. Parking fermé. Deux petites remarques, l'eau chaude est longue à venir, l'entrée du parking un peu étroite.

    Déçus !

    très déçus pour notre première expérience Hotels com. Nous pensions qu'une Quinta aussi éloignée de tout nous permettrait d'avoir une chambre confortable . Arrivés là bas, parties communes sympas mais nous nous sommes retrouvés dans une toute petite chambre, sans doute une des plus petites de la Quinta, avec une petite salle d'eau. Avons demandé si nous pouvions une autre chambre un peu plus grande et salle de bains(pour info, sur le site d'un de vos concurrents, il restait des chambres beaucoup plus grandes, avec salle de bains, à des prix moindres). Nous avons eu un refus catégorique. (nous ne demandions pas de réduction, bien entendu) - Aucune chaise, rien pour poser ses valises (à part une commode et un radiateur .....), à part prises pour lumières pas de prise dans chambre, aucune dans salle de bains - Petit déjeuner moyen - Personnel pas du tout à l'écoute
