Madeira, but no cake

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 ...

... language from quite a reasonable distance, and figured we were probably good for 6 euros should he sidle up alongside us. And so the dodgy knees won the vote and we jumped in and enjoyed the 5-10 minute cab ride which just seemed to go down down and still further down before arriving on flat ground in the heart of the city. Just 'there' indeed!

So as we wandered these magnificent stone footpaths paved with pictures of Portuguese explorers from times gone by, ...

It was fabulous and we are looking forward to the second last day on board when they do the Galley lunch, providing a spread which is laid out throughout this huge galley kitchen.

After today we have one more full day at sea before we reach Funchal in Madeira which we believe is really beautiful. We're contemplating a cable car ride ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Quinta da Casa Branca Funchal

    Try this hotel for a truly special holiday

    from

    Nobody on TripAdvisor seems to have a bad word to say about this hotel - and I'm certainly not going to be the first! There are not many hotels where the photos on the website cannot do justice to reality, but the Qunita is certainly an exception to this general rule. Our room was spacious and the view across the gardens was stunning. It is remarkable how quiet this place is given its proximity to "Hotel/Tourist Town".

    Excellent hotel, sheer luxury

    from

    After reading good reports about this hotel I was amazed when it exceeded my expectations. The design is suberb and the staff are even better, I have never been as well looked after in all of my travels anywhere in the world!

    As other reports state the breakfast is first class, do order the poached egg Florentine from the a la carte, well worthe the wait.

    Afternoon tea is good value at 7 euros for two persons to have a pot of tea and home made cakes.

    Only downside I found was the very hard beds and pillows that are a Portugese custom, needed plenty of wine to get to sleep!

    A Lovely Place

    from

    We agree with all that has gone before, we felt it was worth being somewhat out of town to get the peace of the hotel setting. Some better lighting from Reception to the Restaurant would be useful as I stumbled over a step which was hard to see in the dark so take care. Everything was so clean and the staff so discreet, yet would chat if spoken to - lovely.

    Beautiful hotel, peaceful & quiet

    from

    Stayed at the Quinta da Casa Branca in early September 05. It is a truly beautiful hotel. The standard room we stayed in was excellent, opening onto the stunning gardens with their huge palms and flowering trees. Breakfast was excellent, especially the abundant fresh fruit. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A well deserved 5*. My only comment would be about the surrounding area. It is becoming very built up with hotels, apartments etc. which we don't like. But this hotel is like being in another world! It is an excellent place just to relax or to explore the rest of Madeira as we did. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned to Madeira.

    Peace & Quiet

    from

    Arrived slightly frazzled due to the taxi driver having delusions of being a grand prix driver, and appears he still had a driving license, despite looking about 93 ! We had booked a standard room, decor simple but elegant and suitably thick walls....nothing worse than hearing next door. The terrace was large enough for 2 sunbeds, although the mattress was only for a sun-chair? Gardens here are lovely and if you're interested, there are guided walks to say what's what. Perfectly fine marble bathroom and bath towels changed daily, with hand towels/flannels changed again with turn-down service. ( Bring your own hair-dryer though, as the one provided is like a tornado! )

    Simply stunning!

    from

    I have to agree with the reviews already written about this hotel. Our stay could not have been better; the rooms are a good size with excellent service and great access to the beautiful gardens. Overall the service in both the bars and the restaurants was second to none, and the food is simply divine. I booked this hotel after reading the reviews on this site and fully reccommend that you try it. I will return next year.

    Island Oasis

    from

    My husband & I stayed at Casa Branca for a getaway anniversary weekend and were very impressed. We prefer unique, small hotels off of the beaten path and this hotel was perfect. The setting is idyllic with every room opening onto a beautiful garden or a private balcony that overlooks the garden. The rooms were modern and spacious with lots of wood and huge bathrooms. The reception area is striking and includes a bar and lounge area behind the reception desk.

    A Perfect Hotel

    from

    This Casa Branca gets things just right. The hotel itself is beautiful - a strikingly modern glass and wooden building set in lush green gardens with breathtaking views of the hills and sea. The rooms are large with simple, understated decoration and small, shaded terraces. The staff are delightful - we had by far the warmest welcome at reception of any hotel we've ever stayed at and this continued for the whole week of our stay - genuinely friendly, discrete and understated service. Finally, the breakfast was a real highpoint of this hotel - beautifully fresh food served in a wooden summer house in the gardens surrounded by flowers. All in all, a perfect hotel to unwind and let the stress melt away.

    Casa Branca was the greatest!

    from

    It was our first visit to Madeira and we were unsure of the hotels. After a lot of research, we decided to contact a hotel direct, as opposed to going through an agent, and selected the Estalagem Quinta do Casa Branca as it had featured favouarbly on a number of reports.

    A haven from the stresses of life

    from

    The hotel is a haven from the stresses of life. It is a relaxing atmosphere to unwind in. You can walk to the town from the hotel. The food was good though I believe it is better now, will let you know as we are returning this year. The rooms are big and comfortable, the staff friendly and professional, we recieved the best service we have had anywhere. Nothing is too much for them.
