2-12 June 2008. Very clean and spacious 1 room apartment; if you are with 2 you don't really need the 2 room apartment. We stayed in apartment 6 with a wonderful view of the harbour. The location is nice and quiet as soon as you walk in to the quinta. To the old city centre of Funchal is a 15 minute walk. You can take bus 32 on your way back. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool. Because the quinta is higher it gets clouded sooner than when you're below so there may be less sunbathing at the pool but that's personal. Renting a car at the reception was fine. Do have dinner in the old town at Tapassol. Affordable, good and friendly service.

As for the building activities: we didn't look forward to that but it really didn't bother us much, you see the crane but there's no excessive noise hindrance. No need to stay away on that account.

The location of the apartment wasn't that good. A 300 height difference over a 1,4 km distance is very steep so getting back from the centre was no option. The balcony was not only small but was also deprived of sunshine. The sun simply couldn't reach it. 25 metres from our balcony construction workers were building two houses from 8AM to 6PM using 2 gigantic cranes, six days a week. The distance to the bakery was a problem in the beginning because of the steep climb. This is the first time in years that our travel agent has done us wrong regarding information. Even though the description you get after the booking informs you about the high location of the apartment there was little attention for this prior to the booking. Otherwise we would never have done this. Especially the sombre and often cold balcony and the construction site in front of it didn't make this a success.

The view wasn't excellent, but it was okay. The cleaning was excellent and they were friendly. The people at the reception were professional, but not very friendly. They were kind of rude (we knew to speak Portugues) when they were not working. The garden wasn't beautifull at all and they didn't maintain it (May 2006). The new building should have been build in the same style as the quinta. It just wasn't pretty. The place was well reachable.

It was located just outside the centre of Funchal. A lovely view on the city, but the road to the centre was a bit too steep. Luckily there were plenty of taxis and they weren't expensive. The complex itself looked beautiful and was maintained well. A very nice pool. I recommend it.
