FUNCHAL, HERE WE COME...
Even the funny hat man is glad to see land again after eight days at sea.
This island is lush with vegitation ...
We had yet to make it to breakfast in the buffet or restaurant, sometimes ordering breakfast in bed, other times making it out in time for lunch. But today was different, today we had decided to get up and off the boat in time for church. Our breakfast churned in our stomachs as we stepped off the ship, the smell of birds was as potent, sickening and unwelcoming as swimming in sewerage, the harbour would have one time been tarmaced, but ...
... he said was just 'there'. So as we walk down the very very steep hills into town we were badgered by many taxi drivers who offered us a reprieve from the steep craggy streets for just 6 euros. But no, Len was determined to walk regardless of the bad strain on these tired and dodgy knees that I own and so we commenced the long trek downwards. As the stress between us became uglier and uglier along came a taxi who was clearly watching this old married coupe and detected ...
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 ...
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 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.
