I shouldn't tell you all this,but when the Saturday 'Times' recently included this hotel in its 'Best 50 Summer Holiday Bargains',my secret that what this hotel costs against what it should in terms of quality,service and standards of staff and housekeeping,was out of the bag.If you want a relaxing week with top-class service surrounded by beautiful gardens along with staggering...

What can I say that has not been said about the hotel. It is a terrific hotel with the staff being ever so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Yes it is a bit of a walk into the centre but taxis are available at no great cost. ,Our first visit, on our honeymoon, and hopefully not...

QSJ is a small hotel with personal service. We had a junior suite which was huge, with a dressing area, sitting area, separate shower and bath and a separate WC. The rooms are clean and well appointed with adjoining 3ft beds. We were B&B so we walked into town in the evening which is 30 mins to the old town,...

Yes, really - simply the best hotel we have ever stayed in. This was a return visit for us, and I can only reiterate what I said in my review following our first visit a year ago. This relatively small hotel offers such a high level of excellent facilities that would be quite sufficient for a five star review. But...

Have just returned from a week long stay at the hotel and can only commend it and although as with everywhere there will be niggles I can honestly say I couldn't find fault.

If you want a smaller, family-owned hotel, in a relatively quiet district of Funchal (subject to barking dogs, depending on which room you are in), with lovely gardens and grounds, and with great attention to personal service, then I'd strongly recommend this hotel. It is well away from all the other large hotels (including Reids) congregated in a new-build area...
