MADEIRA, "The Hawaii of Europe"

Madeira, but no cake

A travel blog entry by pinklady27


... covered in a thick layer of bird droppings and feathers. Hurrying we walked into town. Oddly enough the map given to us by the tourist information didn't match the street names, but eventually and only five minutes late we arrived at church. This was after walking up a road that was definitely only meant for cars and having a guy leaving out a car window shouting, "What are you doing?" It was an Anglican Church aptly named 'The ...

Sailing Separation

Then back to the ship for an afternoon on deck in the sun. I did join the dance classes a couple of days ago and am now becoming quite proficient in the tango, cha cha, waltz and quick step. so my new gay fiend and I have partnered up and are having a hoot on the dance floor.

On Tuesday our waiter had my usual diet coke waiting for me just before lunch however as I crunched on my ice at the end of the drink I realised I was crunching glass, so I have ...

The Middle of Nowhere in the Atlantic Ocean

A travel blog entry by jennyheid


Well its been 7 days since we left Barbados for our trans atlantic crossing and have enjoyed every single day, this being the first we have not had out on deck in the sun. We've had mostly moderate seas with some swells up to 3 metres, which seem to peak in the middle of the night. However its hard sometimes to work out if its the rough seas or just that last glass of champagne!!

We have really got to know the crew who are all fantastic and can not do ...

Fun in Funchal

A travel blog entry by cthetravellady


Madeira island might be the favourite stop for each of us. We started the day by shopping, which would have been enjoyable if there weren't 5 ships in port today. We have been spoiled by the lack of crowds otherwise.

We changed our plan and went down the toboggan run instead. Two people hop into a fragile wicker basket and are accompanied by ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Quinta Jardins do Lago Funchal

    Civilizado, amigable y confortable


    Mi esposa y yo nos mudamos a este hotel después de haber estado atrapados por tres días en un lugar horrible en las montanas, cerca de los jardines Palheiro. ¡Qué contraste! El personal fue acogedor, simpático y eficiente. La habitación fue magnifica con vistas fabulosas de los jardines y el mar (Consejo: Reserva en el tercer piso para las mejores vistas.) El restaurante es encantador, con comida sensacional. Realmente disfrutamos la caminata hasta Funchal (que ES mas bien empinada). Recomendado altamente.

    Relax in this elegant hotel


    We relaxed in this elegant hotel set in extremely beautiful peaceful gardens. The staff were quietly attentive and friendly - the dining was excellent. Our standard room was large with a very well appointed bathroom including bathrobes. Our balcony looked out over the gardens to the sea beyond, but we also had a view of Funchal rising up the hill behind us - at night ablaze with lights. The swimming pool was wonderful with a poolside snack bar, and there were always enough loungers to go round. There was a also courtesy bus into Funchal at regular intervals. And as an addedd attraction living in the hotel's gardens is an enormous Galapagos tortoise called Colombo who has a voracious appetite for bananas and whom we greatly enjoyed feeding every morning. All in all a superb relaxing holiday.

    Not as child friendly as you might think.


    Just returned from 1 week stay (two adults and a toddler).

    Hotel is lovely, previous review sums it up BUT

    -childrens' pool was filthy and wasn't cleaned until our final day.

    -children under the age of 8 are not allowed to use the dinning room (can only have high tea in a separate room). (didn't know that until we arrived).

    - the staff were very nice and polite but waiting staff service was far from good.

    -You are supposed to stop your children from screaming and jumping in the swimming pool ! Don't think that many children would want to play quietly in a swimming pool.

    I just got the feeling that they allow you to take children here but it would be prefered if you could keep them quiet and out of site.

    Ein Kleinod im Grünen!


    Es erwartet Sie eine kleine Hotelanlage in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße, bestehend aus dem alten Herrenhaus und einem modernen Anbau, in dem sich die Zimmer befinden.

    Alles ist sehr sauber und freundlich; die (geräumigen) Zimmer und Bäder sind modern und gepflegt. Umgeben ist dieses kleiine Schmuckstück von einer sehr gepflegten und großzügig gestalteten Gartenanlage mit exotischen Pflanzen und gepflegtem Poolbereich.

    Personal und Servicekräfte sind stets freundlich und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt ein Aufenthalt (10 Nächte), den wir gerne in Erinnerung behalten.

    A parents dream!! You must stay here!


    We have just returned from a weeks stay at this beautiful hotel. We have two very young children (21 months and a 3 year old) and were looking for something a little bit more intimate and somewhere very child friendly that could also offer us good food too. We had to do some research to find this place and we booked it independently which seemed to work out cheaper.

    Entspannter Wochenendausflug


    Verbrachte ein langes Wochenende im Jardins do Lago. Ein wunderbarer Ort, außergewöhnliche Gärten, geräumige Unterkunft und eine warme, einladende Atmosphäre. Dem Personal muss man zu seiner unaufdringlichen Tüchtigkeit gratulieren. Das Wetter war nicht besonders gut aber wir haben es doch geschafft, uns ein paar Nachmittage lang am Pool zu entspannen - ausgezeichneter Pool - im Bistro nebenan bekommt man Mittagessen und Snacks - und wir hatten jeden Morgen auf der Terrasse unser Frühstück. Das Hotel liegt etwas außerhalb der Stadt auf einem steilen Hügel, aber es ein kostenloser Bus bringt einen mehrmals pro Tag in die Stadt und zurück - wenn Ihnen der Sinn nicht nach Laufen steht (wenn man einen Wagen gemietet hat kann das Parken in Funchal leicht zu einem Albtraum werden). Haben die üblichen Ausflüge um Funchal herum unternommen (Cable Car nach Monte, Botanischer Garten - mit dem neuen Cable Car, Blandy Wein Lodge, Reid's zum Tee usw.) und haben das Coupana Hills Resort besucht. Leider war dort nicht alles zum besten als wir ankamen, wir waren von Wolken umgeben und es regnete. Alles in allem ein schönes Urlaubsziel und ein gutes Hotel für ein langes Wochenende. Hoffe hier noch einmal länger unterzukommen.

    Zivilisiert, freundlich und bequem


    Meine Frau und ich zogen in dieses Hotel um nachdem wir zuvor drei Tage lang in einem grauenhaften Hotel oben in den Hügeln festsaßen, in der Nähe der Palheiro Gärten. Was für ein Unterschied! Einladendes, freundliches und tüchtiges Personal. Großartiges Zimmer mit fabelhafter Aussicht auf die Gärten und das Meer (Tipp: buchen Sie ein Zimmer im dritten Stock, von dort aus haben Sie die beste Aussicht). Reizendes Restaurant mit sensationellem Essen. Wir haben den Spaziergang nach Funchal (der wirklich sehr steil ist) sehr genossen. Sehr empfohlen.

    Civilsed,freindly and comfortable


    My wife and I moved to this hotel after 3 days trapped in a dreadful place up in the hills, near to the Palheiro gardens. What a contrast!

    Warm, friendly and efficient staff. Great room with fabulous views of the gardens and the sea (tip: book room on the 3rd floor for the best views).Delightful restaurant with sensational food.

    We really enjoyed the walk into Funchal (which IS rather steep)

    Highly recommended.

    Relaxing weekend break


    Spent long weekend at Jardins do Lago. Delightful place, with outstanding gardens, spacious accommodation and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Staff are to be congratulated on their unobtrusive efficiency. Weather not too great, but we still managed a couple of afternoons relaxing by the pool - excellent pool-side bistro serving lunches and snacks etc - and had breakfast on terrace each morning. Hotel slightly out of town up steep hill, but courtesy bus is run several times a day into town, if you don't want to walk (NB parking somthing of a nightmare in Funchal if you hire a car). Went on most of the usual trips around Funchal (Cable car to Monte, Botanical gardens - with a new cable car, Blandy wine lodge, Reid's for tea etc), and visited Choupana Hills resort. Unfortunately, Choupana was not at its best as when we went it was shrouded in cloud and pelting with rain. All in all a fine destination and hotel for a long weekend. Hope to return here for a longer stay.

    Six star service


    We stayed here for two weeks in June 2004 having wanted a small quality hotel with a bit of character.
