About the location
Funchal is Madeira's colourful hillside capital. The island's biggest draw, it’s an appealing mix of old and new that ticks the boxes for culture, nightlife and beaches. The narrow cobbled streets are dotted with interesting shops, restaurants and cafes, and at the city's heart is a towering 16th-century cathedral (remember to look up – it’s got a beautiful ceiling carved from local wood). The old town is home to bustling farmers' markets and flower markets in spring, and is fringed with a mix of parks, galleries and museums, as well as pretty botanical gardens. The marina is the best spot to spend the evenings, lined with bars that fuel a buzzing nightlife scene. If you're in need of some beach time, there are a couple of black-sand beaches that are a lovely spot for a swim.

After four visits to Quinta Da Casa Branca we felt it was about time we put a review on Trip Advisor. Each visit was meant to be our last, but having become addicted we have returned each year, with each visit proving even more enjoyable than the last. This year we stayed in a suite in the premium room block, which is extremely spacious with its own sitting room, an enormous bathroom and large veranda. The staff are aoutstanding and do everything possible to make guests feel at home. The housekeeping staff are very efficient ensuring immaculate rooms. The waiting staff are always smiling and helpful. The welcome is always warm. The gardeners somehow manage to make already superb gardens look even better each year. It is a joy to be able to identify each plant, with each fully and clearly labelled. We ate at the hotel a couple of times ??? always delicious - but we also like to take advantage of the many excellent restaurants in Funchal, several of which are in walking distance of the hotel. There are many first-class hotels on the island, but it would be very difficult to beat this one with its wonderful surroundings, excellent service and air of peace and tranquillty, yet still be within a 25 minute walk from the centre of Funchal and its many attractions.
