10/10 Exceptional

The stay here was wonderful. The receptionist when we arrived was super welcoming and showed us around really professionally. Everyone we spoke to was really nice and couldn't have done more. We loved our trip to Madeira and had the most incredible holiday, and a lot of this was because we got to come back to Quintinha Sao João in the evenings. The food in their restaurant by the way was also incredible and a really good price for what you get. We also felt very welcomed as a gay couple and didn't feel like we being treated differently to anyone else, which we of course really appreciate. This is the first holiday in a while where I can safely say that I'll be returning soon!

Great service, lovely garden
Excellent service, beautiful garden views and great breakfast. The only negative was that the hotel was a bit dated and just in the middle of refurbishment(outside?).

The staff were so lovely and their service was excellent. The condition of the building and decor could do with some updating, it is very tired.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is very quiet, even if it is still walking distance to the city center, and you can fell the charm of a boutique hotel. The staff is friendly and super helpful, and I really felt like I was at home. The room was very spacious, comfortable and had this lovely balcony overlooking the gardens. The breakfast had a great variety, and the lunch we had by the pool was delicious! I recommend everyone to try on of the cocktails at the bar. The Passion Fruit Mojito is unbelievable! I will definitely stay there again in my next trip to Madeira!

2/10 Poor

Stay away. Not a 5star hotel! More like a hostel
DO NOT COME‼️‼️⛔⛔⛔⛔ This place is a border line fraud. It might be a 5star Motel, NOT a 5 star Hotel. I also, fell into the trap of good reviews on Google maps and Their photographer should get a pulitzer prize because the hotel does NOT look like the photos. We booked 5 nights and left after 2 nights because it was SO bad. They did not want to refund anything but the stay was so horrible we left even if it meant loosing a ~3 nights/~600$. Just some of the nuggets we had during our stay: -The place is OLD and not in a good way. Furniture and all infrastructure are have not been updated since hotel was built (90s?). They did zero upgrades since. - Nothing to eat for breakfast. Better food in McDonald's breakfast. No food for vegan people - we come to 5star places because they accommodate for all kinds of food restrictions - not this place (their response - "sorry. Chef is not here today" - what??) - last day room smelled like a sewer. I'm not exaggerating. Real, strong, distinct sewer smell like in a dark water treatment facility - AC from the 80s. Makes noises at night. You have a choice: stop sweating or sleep - dogs and wolves crying each night outside of the window at 1AM (I admit, not their fault) - only met one nice staff person throughout the whole stay - all furniture, tiles in bathroom, shower taps - everything is in old or broken state. You can't cover up sh*tty upkeep and call it an "old style hotel" Great 3star hotel, not 5!
