    Location 6.21 /10

    On the slopes of Funchal, a mile from the town centre and 14 mi from the airport. The city centre is a 20-minute walk away, the airport a 30-minute drive.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The 43 rooms are divided into 29 standard rooms, 12 deluxe rooms and 2 king suites. All the rooms have a terrace or a balcony overlooking the garden. They are spacious and furnished very simply, considering the luxury of the rest of the hotel. We would have liked the decoration to be brighter. Beige is the dominant force in a monochromatic palette of shades that could really do with a dash of colour. Having said this, the set-up is functional. There is a lounge area with two armchairs and a coffee table. The satellite TV has 30 channels, and there is of course a direct international telephone, individual air conditioning and a mini-bar. The marble bathroom has a separate toilet, a bath, hair-dryer, bathrobes and hospitality products.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in 1998 and renovated in 2001, the Quinta da Casa Branca consists of a low, rectangular smoked-glass construction housing the reception, a modern one-floor building for the rooms, and a traditional house where the two restaurants are located. Spread over a big park as immaculate as a botanical garden, these elements blend perfectly with the setting. The swimming pool is reached across a lawn dotted with shrubs. Covering an area of 1,100 sq ft, the swimming pool is surrounded by a pergola and a hedge, allowing you to relax in total privacy. Deckchairs, cushions, sunshades and towels are available free of charge. You can take a dip in perfect tranquillity with only the sounds of birdsong around you. Armchairs and swing seats are also set out in the garden, affording a fine view of Funchal bay.The vast library of the hotel also deserves a mention. It is decorated in an ultra-modern style, making fine use of shaded tones of grey. Big, comfortable sofas surround this warm place. There is also a computer with free high-speed internet access.Like many luxury hotels, the Quinta has a superb beauty centre. Phytoceane products are used for the treatments. A wide range of treatments are available: aromatherapy, scrubs, massages, etc. both for women and men! It is a very well-equipped relaxation area, with a Jacuzzi, hammam and sauna. We fell in love with the superb resting room where you can really switch off, lulled by warm background music...

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The Quinta da Casa Branca has two restaurants. The Garden Pavilion is located just back from the swimming pool. It has a pleasant room decorated with wrought-iron furniture, as well as a terrace where you can sit for breakfast, lunch and tea. The menu is filled with mouth-watering suggestions like chicken and grilled-almond salad, chicken with orange sauce, or the famous salt cod puree. All these dishes are painstakingly prepared and served by the book. In the evening, the Casa da Quinta offers several menus, including a gourmet one, which are served in the old dining room of the traditional house on the edge of the estate. You will be dining in a particularly refined atmosphere, with white tablecloths, bouquets of flowers and still life paintings on the walls. The island's unique flavours, such as swordfish or Madeiran tuna, have the place of honour among the refined culinary offerings. As far as prices are concerned, you should expect to pay £8.80 per dish, £31 for the standard menu and £53 for the gourmet menu.

    To know

    Although it is located on the lands of an old estate, none of the rooms in the Quinta da Casa Branca are in historical buildings. Modern buildings (which nevertheless fit in with the landscape) have been built especially to house the reception and the rooms. This set-up is the signature of the hotel, which combines a small structure, personal service and contemporary surroundings.Set on a former banana plantation, the Quinta da Casa Branca is on the slopes of Funchal, a mile away from the town centre. The city centre is a 20-minute walk away. However, as the hotel does not offer a shuttle service, it is a good idea to rent a car and enjoy complete independence.Like many Quintas, this place is especially well suited to couples. Indeed, no facilities are provided for children. Only baby-sitting can be arranged, on request.

      A simple, pleasant establishment, the Buganvilia is recommended for the complex that it forms with the Mimosa and the Estrelicia. A place offering a good variety of facilities at a very good price.

      A very comfortable hotel in an exceptional location! Overlooking the ocean, the Cliff Bay will delight those looking for an elegant and refined holiday setting. This is one of our favourites in Madeira. Very large communal areas welcome the hotel's guests and, above all, a spa worthy of its name.

      An internationally-renowned establishment, one of the "Leading Hotels of the World" and a member of the Orient-Express group, Reid's will attract a demanding clientele who expect a high level of service in a setting that exudes elegance, chic and tradition. Among all the whispering and murmuring, there is a certain rush to take your time to take your time... Between the sound of the waves, the clattering of porcelain and the sound of heels on the tiled floor, anything can happen in these bygone surroundings where, nevertheless, nothing is happening. Time, here, passes by somewhat hurriedly... The most recent work took place in 2006 and involved the swimming pool and the spa. The bedrooms, for their part, are also gradually being renovated.

      The Quinta do Sol is a simple hotel without charm but with airy rooms. It benefits from a good location. Being there since the 70s, it has been swallowed by numerous buildings now surrounding it. Anyway, there remains a lovely viewpoint of the ocean. Note that the seaside is slightly far away. In addition, the facilities are modest.

      The Pestana Miramar is a neighbour of the Pestana Village and shares the same facilities, but it offers different types of accommodation to meet the needs of everyone, from the most simple to the most sophisticated. Not far from the city centre, it is not by the sea but it has the asset of possessing a range of different restaurants. Its clientele is mainly European, with families making up the numbers in the summer months and couples being in majority in the winter.

The hotel has been completely renovated and reopened its doors on 4th May 2007.

      The Melia Madeira Mare is certainly one of the best establishments in Madeira, but you would never have guessed it from its imposing exterior... Nevertheless, it boasts numerous details that make for a perfect place to spend your holiday. The hotel's concept was inspired by the five senses: smell, with the perfumed atmosphere, touch, with the soft and delicate fabrics, hearing, with the constant musical entertainment, sight, with the colour scheme used throughout the establishment, and taste, with the delicately prepared meals. The Melia Madeira Mare is a place you come to rest and enjoy high quality facilities, not forgetting the attentive service!
