This was our third trip to this superb hotel. The hotel is set in the most beautiful grounds, the pool complex is amazing and the rooms have lovely views over the gardens to the sea beyond. However the greatest feature is the quality of the staff who provide an exemplary service and always seem to be able to help whatever the request. Staying at Quinta Jardin da lago is always memorable.

We have just spent 10 days at this beautiful hotel. This small luxury hotel incorporates the original Quinta which houses several top suites as well as the restaurant, bar and library amongst other things. The remaining accommodation is located adjacent to the Quinta and is accessed internally. All of the public areas as well as the rooms are beautifully furnished in traditional Madeiran style with classic furnishings, artwork and antiques. Beautiful dark wood floors as well as stylish tiles and carpets are seen in the public areas as well as in the bedrooms. Spotlessly clean throughout, and the hotel’s attention to safety regarding Covid measures were second to none. All of the well sized bedrooms have individual terraces/balconies and overlook the gardens. The hotel is situated in its own enormous botanical gardens which are beautifully kept. A gardener’s paradise! Colombos, the resident giant tortoise can be seen sunning himself near his den and loves being stroked by the guests! The heated swimming pool which is beautifully landscaped is set in a most attractive setting amongst the gardens Lunch can be enjoyed in the separate dining area adjacent to the pool bar. Although the hotel’s 40 odd rooms were fully occupied during our stay the pool area was never crowded and there were plenty of sun loungers available and well-spaced out. Breakfast was served in the garden and whereas prior to the arrival of Covid the hotel had a buffet breakfast, this is no longer the case. Guests are now given an extensive breakfast menu and everything is prepared freshly to order and served directly to guest’s tables. The standard and quality of food, not to mention presentation was excellent. We dined every night at the hotel, having opted for the half board arrangement. We were not disappointed and there was fixed 5 course table d’hote menu which changed daily. Of course they also have an a la carte menu with a very extensive wine list to suit everyone. Again, like breakfast, the quality and presentation was second to none. Like breakfast, dinner was also served in the gardens. The entire team of staff were warm, welcoming and did everything possible to ensure that your stay was memorable for all the right reasons. They even assisted us and other guests in booking pre-flight Covid tests, and where guests needed assistance to complete the locator forms they were more than happy to assist! Service above and beyond!. We understand that at the time we were staying at the hotel, 49% of the guests were returnees and we can understand why. We too have already decided that we will be returning next year! A huge thank you to the entire team for a most memorable holiday, and we look forward to our next visit to this beautiful hotel.

We are just back from a week at the hotel. Things were brilliant from the start as we got upgraded to a large suite. Service is impeccable on the normal things let alone the help with tests etc before we came home. The standard of accommodation was excellent throughout. It sort of Portuguese modern imperial!!! We were breakfast only but decided to have dinner 4 times at the hotel as the choice and service was very good. The hotel is on one many of the hills above Funchal. There is a regular transfer service in the day but we did not use it. Instead we walked down the town which took us about 20 mins. Its a little steep in 2 places and some parts do not have a pavement but it is safe if you are careful. Normally we would get a cab back at a cost of c.8 Euros. However, we did walk back twice which took 25 mins with the 2 steep parts quite interesting. I jogged down the hill to the town and port which was fun. The gym is a bit small but adequate and the pool superb. The gardens are impeccable and really botanical (and we are members of Kew).The tortoise was also lovely. Its very difficult to find any faults.....if I had to it would be breakfast could be a bit slow in the garden (because the buffet is suspended) so if you are on an early morning trip get it served to your room. Also, please replace the coffee pots as you cannot pour coffee without spilling a drip on the pristine white table clothes. Really this is no criticism at all. We will be back!!! PS - the local shop and café 100m to the left of the hotel is also very good. The shop makes excellent paninis for any day trips but i am sure you can get these in the hotel.

We returned to the Jardins do Lago to have the holiday that we had intended to have last year, but which was cancelled for the obvious reason. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed like long lost friends and quickly met several members of staff that we knew from our last trip. Was it really as good as our memories? Yes, if anything it was even better, with a new garden area and terrace, further improving the grounds. I also think that the food in the restaurant had improved, from its previous high standard, providing some excellent choices – the various risottos being particularly memorable for the excellence of both the flavour and the cooking. Despite the beauty of the grounds, and the quiet elegance of the buildings, it is the staff that make the Quinta Jardins do Lago the hotel that it is. They are quite simply superb across the board. They are professional, helpful, kind and friendly in equal measure. It almost feels invidious to pick out individuals, but Andre, Vitor Silva and Hermes do deserve special mention. Thanks for the ‘Shiny Nail’ Hermes! Finally, there is the ever present Columbo. No day at the Jardins do Lago is complete without a visit to their longest serving resident, the Giant Tortoise, Columbo. He is a gentle soul, who seems to relish a bit of attention, so be sure to visit him when you are there – or perhaps this is a just a bit of anthropomorphism! We will definitely be coming back. The Quinta Jardins do Lago is one of those rare places that once you have visited, you keep being drawn back to.

Great hotel. We bought a vacation at your hotel and we are delighted. In addition, we used a guide from Madeira Dream and it was fantastic. We recommend both of these companies to everyone. Great experience.
