Quinta Bela Sao Tiago

This attractive hotel lies in the old town of Funchal in a peaceful neighbourhood, surrounded by a pretty garden with tropical vegetation and a view over the bay of Funchal. The centre, with the many shops and entertainment venues, is to be found a few minutes' walk away, while links to the public transport network lie just in front of the hotel. Housed in a traditional Madeiran Manor House built in 1834, the hotel has been totally restored and offers luxurious guest rooms with a combination of tradition and contemporary elegance. Guests can savour exquisite regional food as well as international cuisine in a beautiful romantic setting, while the bar offers exotic cocktails and a stunning sea view. During the day, travellers may enjoy a tour around the historic centre and visit the local market, the Monte cable car station or the São Tiago Fort. After an exciting day of sightseeing, guests are invited to relax and enjoy sunny moments by the sparkling outdoor pool, while overlooking the beautiful ocean.

Sleep Quality



Good standard for the price

This is a traditional hotel in a very good location within easy walking (albeit a bit steep) distance of the old town and the seafront. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean and spacious with loads of storage. Although room 001 was very quiet and had a balcony overlooking the gardens, the lighting is terrible – it’s almost impossible to shave or put on makeup. (Fortunately neither of us needed to do both!!). There are only two bedside lamps and one standard lamp in the main bedroom and two downlights above the sink in the bathroom. As the room has no direct sunlight and is shaded by trees, there is not enough natural light. The hotel were quick to remedy reported problems and breakages but some of the staff were a little brusque eg when we moved tables on the terrace or forgot to put on our masks when re-entering the hotel. Breakfast was good without being wow. Each day there was a good selection of cooked foods, cold meats, yogurt, fruit and bread rolls. The toaster needed to be used four times to toast the bread so cannot cope with busy times. Reception staff were friendly and helpful when booking trips. The pool area and terrace have great views over the bay and it’s fun to watch the hideous cruise liners docking. Below the pool area is a shaded banana plantation with some seating which would be refreshing on a very hot day. However, I personally don't like to see caged birds.

Lovely classic hotel inside the old town of Funchal.

It's a lovely classic hotel inside the old town of Funchal. 100 mtr walk from the sea. Most rooms have a sea view. fine breakfast with fresh fruit salat. Car parc for free inside the hotel. if full large garage 50mtr away. The people at the reception arrange perfect and affordable rental cars. Book them ahead, though, as they sell out quickly. Really good bedroom with silence for deep sleep after all the good Madeira experiences from hikes, cable car to amazing Monte Palace garden, and full swing cozy city center literally around the corner.

Very disappointing

Sadly, this hotel is no longer a 4Star Plus, as advertised. We were last there in February 2020. The standards have dropped considerably. The cooked breakfasts were cold. You now have to request at reception for bath robes/pool towels. The lighting in the room and bathroom is abysmal. The toiletries are of the poorest quality. No tissues provided(they are now environmentally friendly they said). Thin and ragged towels . The tea/coffee sachets are not replenished. This was our fourth stay at this hotel. We seriously will be considering whether to make it a fifth stay.
