"Nice hotel (Vegetarian friendly!) & super location"
We found the hotel to be very nice with excellent facilities, the staff were friendly, welcoming, attentive, knowledgeable and professional, the food was excellent, with a good choice for all tastes and diets including Vegetarian (I'm Vegetarian and really appreciated the good choices). We originally thought that we'd eat 'A La Carte' most evenings, however, we had Buffet each evening as it was so very good. The local wines and beers were very good also! The location of the hotel is stunning, on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic with views down to Jardim Do Mar and Paul Do Mar. Watching the sun set whilst enjoying a drink on the terrace was a real treat. The local town of Prazeres is very quiet, but still has a couple of restaurants and a few shops - The area is ideal for walking holidays. The hotel provide scheduled shuttle bus services to Funchal and a few other places, however, we would highly recommend getting a hire car if you want to explore some of the many beautiful places on Madeira (we organised our car in advance for collection at the airport, but the hotel can arrange a car at good rates). Our room was a "studio" and it had a small kitchen area including coffee machine, toaster and fridge-freezer, which we found to be useful. There is a small grocery store on site at the hotel, which sells some wines, spirits, beers, basic groceries and souvenirs. The photos don't do the place any justice - it is much better! A very good choice for relaxing holiday
The emailed directions were perfect and we arrived with no trouble to this delightful vineyard set on the hill near Calhetta and were immediately welcomed by attentive reception staff. Tea was brought to us on the lawn, overlooking the sea, while paperwork was dealt with and it was the most relaxed registration we've ever had. We adored our stay - couldn't have been better. Both receptionists were exceptional in courtesy, efficiency and local knowledge. We loved the levada walks we walked and the pool, set in the gorgeous gardens, was a pleasure to jump into on our return. It was a privilege to be among such amazing antiques in this 17th Century Quinta and fun sitting with other guests round the enormous dining table at the delicious breakfast. We had supper on the first evening as we were too tired to explore and although it wasn't fabulous it was wholesome enough, the view was great, and it was ideally convenient.
The view from our bedroom was stunning, down to the sea, through cerise flower laden tree branches.
We will definitely return to this Quinta. Thank you for a wonderful 2 days.

Most pleasing experience with imaginative chefs and heart warming staff. Rooftop spa and access to rock based natural swimming pool complete the experience. The twin room was ample and the balcony sea view astonishing. The hotel could do with a couple of more parking spaces.
Stayed one night only, wish it had been longer - competent & friendly staff (esp. the S.A./Madeiran receptionist) comfortable & clean, nice firm beds. Should have opted for a 'hot stones' massage, a sauna or gone to the jacuzzi - but didn't have time. Next time round, though.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were excellent - friendly, great service and would do anything to help and more. The views were lovely and in a nice quiet location. Be aware you would need to use taxis, buses or hire a car to get about. We used a taxi with a great guy called Duncan recommended by the hotel, who gave us a tour of the island which was a great day out and for other little run arounds. Also took the local bus into Funchal which was convenient too. A great holiday and we hope that the people who own this hotel value the wonderful staff they have - they really were so hard working and always with a smile. Thank you to them all for making our holiday so enjoyable.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room, and the hotel as a whole, were very clean and well-furnished. Lovely location as well. We were well satisfied with the overall package, with only one reservation. The food, both at breakfast and dinner, was fairly average.
