Had a lazy day today. Had breakfast and went to Funchal market. The fish market took me back to when I was a kid in Liverpool. The Tuna was huge and if you knew what you were doing, there would have been loads of deals for fish, most I didn't recognise. The flowers and fruit were amazing. we bought some fruit, particularly passion fruit, strawberry, pineapple and others. it was good as the ...
This morning was busy getting ready for our room move. How confusing, our new room, although on a different floor, is identical but everything in reverse, it's driving Judy mad! We later went on an expensive trip - but you will have to check out the photos to see where. We went for a late swim and jacuzzi before drinks and then........for a Monday curry. It was so good last time we couldn't wait till ...
After a really rough sleep because of rolling seas and rickety wall panels rattling all night we woke up in Funchal, Madiera Islands. It was pouring with rain and windy so were a little put out as our daily notice sheet said it was min 8 deg and high of 19 deg. Because we weren't going on an escorted tour we had time for a leisurely breakfast and then set off with our umbrellas to explore the island on foot. It's very pretty with some lovely garden ...
Sorry this is late and I hope we've caught you before you go to bed. We have been on the west island tour today. This involved a visit to Camara de lobos (boring Winston etc ....blah blah blah) but then onto the second highest sea cliff in Europe ( second highest in the world - quiz question? And which is the highest??) at 580 m. This would have been good on its own but we were able to look down through a glass floor ...
... we enjoyed them very much. A wealthy benefactor has opened up his palace and gardens to the public with several walks in beautiful gardens. He also displays African sculptures and to my surprise and excitement the best display of minerals I have ever seen! We had a fascinating morning in a well laid out visit which even had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quinta Mirabela Funchal
Wir sind gerade von einem weiteren ausgezeichneten Aufenthalt im The Quinta Mirabela Hotel zurückgekehrt. Da es Ostern war, war das Hotel voll, aber durch die vielen ruhigen Plätzchen zum Sitzen und Entspannen wirkte es nicht hektisch oder überfüllt. Wir haben an 5 von 7 Abenden im Hotel gegessen, einschließlich zweier wundervoller Gerichte Karfreitag und Ostersonntag. Das Menü und die Liebe zum Detail waren einfach hervorragend! Hier nur ein paar Vorschläge und Empfehlungen für Sie: Wir kamen mit den Bussen am Ort sehr gut zurecht. Fahrkarten kauft man in der grünen Hütte an der Bushaltestelle oder im Bus selbst, 1 Euro 50 für eine Rückfahrt. Wir sind immer mit der Linie 23 gefahren, die in der Nähe der Kirche hält. Man kann auch mit der Linie 19 fahren, aber wir haben keinen Fahrplan für diesen Bus gefunden. Alle Busse sind äußerst zuverlässig! - Durch die Nähe zum Äquator ist es wichtig, viel Sonnencrème zu benutzen. Ich neige sonst nicht so schnell zum Sonnenbrand, aber in Madeira bin ich schon zweimal verbrannt. - Falls Sie noch nichts organisiert haben, um vom Flughafen zum Hotel zu kommen, können Sie vor Ihrer Abreise von zu Hause das Hotel anrufen, das dann ein Taxi bestellt, um Sie abzuholen - 25 Euro. Wir würden dieses Hotel für einen perfekten, ruhigen Urlaub empfehlen.
Gerade zurück von einer Woche im Quinta Mirabela, Funchal. Es ist ein sehr schönes, modernes Hotel, etwas vom Zentrum von Funchal abgelegen, weit oben am Hang mit ausgezeichnetem Blick. Taxis und öffentliche Busse leicht zu finden - wodurch man das Stadtzentrum bequem erreicht. Angebote sehr gut, Personal hervorragend: aufmerksam, unendlich hilfsbereit und freundlich. Kostenloser Breitbandanschluss auf jedem Zimmer. Auf jeden Fall ein 'Designer'-Hotel, das mit viel Sorgfalt von der Quinta/Villa zum 5-Sterne-Hotel transformiert wurde. Sehr empfehlenswert.

We have just returned from another excellent stay at The Quinta Mirabela Hotel. With it being Easter the hotel was full but it didn't feel busy or crowded with plently of quiet places to sit and relaxe.
Just back from a week at Quinta Mirabela, Funchal. Its a delightful, modern hotel, some distance from Funchal centre, high up the hill with excellent views. Taxis and municipal 'buses easy to find - giving easy access to town centre. Facilities very good, staff were outstanding: attentive, endlessly helpful and friendly. Free broadband in each room. Very much a 'designer' hotel with careful thought given to tranforming this quinta/mansion into a five star hotel. Highly recommended. HV & SG (London)
Visited Madeira first week in January. Having booked two five star hotels on the net at quite good value, Quinta Mirabela was the second hotel we stayed at. I have got a passion for cool designer hotels, however most are outrageously expensive. Most hotels in Madeira arent really my taste at all, a little too eighties Dynasty if you know what I mean, and a lot of effort was made googling for "design" "boutique" Madeira hotels. So when I found Quinta Mirabela (Superior Room, 94 Eur per night), I reallly felt housekeeping I'd found a gem. And - I had. The hotel is hip and trendy, at the same time comfortable, and the staff are very friendly. The view from the hotel is amazing, best enjoyed from the balcony. The balcony is great and sheltered from rain and wind, even on a rainful night it is a joy sitting on the balcony resting your eyes on the beautiful view of Madeira. To get your own balcony, you have to have a Superior Room, and it is definitely worth the extra Euros (for us EUR 7 a night. The bathroom is geat, and the mirrors are more than big enough (if you need full lenght just step out in the corridor!) The matress was a little on the hard side though, so housekeeping put an extra duvet on top of the matress which definitely helped.
We (a couple) stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the end of October. Madeira was excellent, and we will definetly return there to see all the things we missed. The hotel though, will not be hearing or seeing any of us again so soon. I can't say that most of the staff was not helpfull and nice, because they were, but a 5 star hotel must pay attention to details in order to earn that classification, and that was not the case.
We stayed at this hotel in August and had a great week; this hotel provides everything you require in a small hotel and more. The hotel is very modern and well designed; we found the staff to be relaxed and helpful.
The food was good we used the restaurant on a couple of occasions and particularly enjoyed the fruit and good bread at breakfast. We had a lovely room with balcony overlooking the pool and the city of Funchal with the sea beyond.
You do need to use a car or taxi's to get around as the roads are very steep and difficult to walk. If you can, get out of the city and see some of the island, the views are great with many good walks to suit all abilities.
I have felt compelled to write this to complement the hotel on the fantastic week we have just spent here.
We returned home on the 31st January 2005, having enjoyed a fantastic week in Madeira. The hotel was disappointing in that we'd expected some of the original character of the old building to still be apparent, but it wasn't. It's ultra modern throughout. An interior designer has obviously been employed to furnish and decorate the place, which looks fantastic, but very much at the expense of comfort!! Lots of wierd shaped settees and chairs, but not one seat in the entire hotel that you can simply slouch in and read a book and relax in (the only comfortable seats were on the landings, but who wants to relax on a landing???). No lounge area, just a couple of "settees" in the bar in the restaurant. There is a games room down in the basement, which leads to a very well equipped gym and pool area, which we didn't use as it wasn't really hot enough.
