This was our first visit to Madeira which started off badly as we had to divert to Tenerife due to high winds. We eventually arrived at the Quinta Mirabela one day later. The tourist maps of the island are not very detailed so it was just as well there were sign posts to the hotel off the main road. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was one of the superior rooms with balcony. I had asked for a quiet room and we were positioned at the far end of the corridor was perfect really. The room was very well appointed and the view breathtaking. There were a couple of small issues with the lights and bath which were rectified immediately and without fuss. The breakfasts are really rather good and we did have a couple of evening meals in the restaurant which were above average compared to most of the hotels I stay in. Of course, a visit to Madeira is not complete without sampling one of the many fine restaurants in Funchal. We had a very relaxing stay at Quinta Mirabella. Overall the hotel was superb and the standard of service first class. We hope to return some day to finish off our exploration of the island.

Comfortable hotel with 2 pools and a spa. Comfortable and cosy rather than glamorous although the flower arrangements are stunning! Room 212, Magnolia Suite was charming . Lovely wooden floors and windows looking over the terrace. Didn't get time to use the spa but, from pool side it looked impressive! Both pools were clean and sunbeds very comfy! Slightly older clientele meant that we generally had sole use of them! Pleasant walk down to town and walk up was made easier by the thoughts of the lovely bar, coffee and cocktails!
The food is good, the staff are good and seem happy which makes for relaxed guests!
I stayed 48 hours after a week of strenuous walking (55 year old woman travelling solo) and had the best time. Sparkling 20m pool and easy access to a lovely pebbly beach (take jelly shoes). With friendly staff, excellent food, a nice room with a balcony overlooking the sea, and a superb hot stone massage what's not to like. Only 20 mins and €25 by taxi from the airport and frequent buses into Funchal. Thoroughly recommended.
