Very nice and attentive staff. The property is beautiful but would need a little intervention on outside. Slippery floor when humid or raining. Slipped many times and fall twice. The hotel has different types of accommodation rustic house and more modern bungalows. Although the rustic house are appealing due to their cuteness they are not comfortable and aligned with the hotel standard. Old and not upgraded to the expected comfort. We were upgraded to the new modern bungalows with all things nice and in place. We think this place must be very nice during summer time as it has two nice swing pools and a Rose nursery that was obviously not blooming in January. Nice gardens and perfect to relax. You can find walking trails around (that we could not do as it was raining...) and the wine museum next door that we visit with a small wine taste. There’s also in the same house as the museum a bakery where you can get or have delivered bread done in firewood Owen. You find in the bakery some hand made cookies typical from Madeira and that are giving to taste during the wine museum visit. People in the hotel and surroundings are very nice.

Dear agleh78, We thank you for your most recent stay and visit at Pestana Quinta do arco and for the time spent evaluating us and sharing your experience on the platform. We are proud to provide a product that appeals to various market segments, keeping tradition and rustic Madeiran alive with our Villas and Villas Duplex that maintain the original character that gave rise to Quinta do Arco. At the same time we add a touch of modernity and the imprint of the Pestana brand with our Studios that offer greater comfort and more amenities within our hotel, well framed in the landscape that surrounds them. We regret your less positive experience with regard to the outdoor floor, which we recognize to be slippery, but for that reason there are limited areas to be used in order to avoid it in wet weather characteristic of the north coast. In relation to the "Roseiral" - rose garden, the largest in Portugal with more than 1500 species, the beginning of its flowering occurs in April, the period from which we recommend your visit, considering that from January to March it is closed for its pruning and annual maintenance, after the winter period that is less flowery. We appreciate above all your comments that are certainly highly valued in order to constantly introduce improvements in our service, in fact our location on the North coast with the proximity to many attractions, certainly appeals to nature lovers. We look forward to a next stay ensuring our commitment to meet and exceed your expectations. Best regards, António Almeida Santos Unit Manager

On the green lush side of the island lies this gem. Nice cosy houses with everything you need. Waking up with beautifull bird songs. No feeling of rushing. On colder days there is even a fire place. Warmer days offer a nice swimmingpool. When you don t want to go out, you have a kitchen with all the supplies you need. Our house was cleaned every day. The staff amazingly friendly and helpfull with everything you need. The location is great. Not too far from Santana and the amazing hikes around. If you d like to go west of the island, the location is great as well. The breakfast is at the tea house close to the hotel on a small walkin distance away. Amazing staff offers a big variety of food every morning (and great coffee as well). We had a super sweet, dear cat family we took care of in the week we we re there. The cats stay around the hotel and are been taken care of by the staff. I allready miss this place, the staff and the little kitty s. We will definatelly come back!

First I want to say, this stay was a special offer from our Hotel in Funchal. So we decided to take this offer and stay one night here. As we should realize later this was a mistake. The hotel was quit hard to find. But we managed. From the first impression it looked very nice, also with the Rose Garden. The guy at the reception was more than unfriendly. Then he showed us our accommodation. In the description of this Hotel, the room was called a "VILLA". The room was we think quit new. But as soon as you came trough the door you already fell in to the bed. The kitchenett was very poor equipped. The tea box was without any tea. and the smell in the room was very damp. That would not be the problem if there was a window to open, but there were only doors, so you didn't have the opportunity to leave something open when you are away. So we decided to go to the swimming pool. It looked good. But when you are in then you find the next problems. The tiles were loose or already missing, so you could cut easily your feet. So also this was very annoying. No the last story from the Hotel, after the short swim, we took a shower in our room, there we found the bathroom had still the old hair from other visitors in the bath and the bath was very dirty. We also found that the curtains already have mildew. We also wanted to start the air-condition because it was very warm in the room, due to no proper Window, the air-condition was only heating and not cooling. Now we had enough and took our bags to go back to Funchal. We stopped be the reception and told the whole story to the guy. He's reaction was, " OH, ok when you want to go than you have to!!!" So we did not stay the night, and directly drove to our hotel in Funchal. Never again this hotel.

Unfortunately since we were there off season we did not get a chance to see the flowers but the room was very nice and the location was great to get around the island. The beds were a little uncomfortable but the room was nice. The breakfast was a basic buffet, nothing special but the service was nice and friendly. I absolutely loved Madeira and would highly recommend it to anyone!
