Beautiful, relaxing, quiet
Despite the global pandemic we stayed at Quinta Splendida in a self-catering apartment. The grounds are beautiful, the pool was great, staff were very friendly. Besides being very quiet (not a bad or unexpected thing) everything was perfect.
Hotel in fabulous tropical garden
Hotel is situated about 12 km from Funchal. It consists of different "bungalow" types of buildings. It is a very peaceful place with big outdoor swimming pool and spa with indoor one. Several restaurant and bars onsite. It is on a hill with great view to the sea. Hotel has free shuttle to Funchal twice on weekdays. Regual public bus runs to Funchal daily. Within walking distance there is a supermarket, restaurants, coffee shop/bakery etc.
Quinta Splendida is all you can dream of as far as a holiday at Madeira goes. The hotel itself and its botanical garden are wonderful (and kept in perfect condition constantly by various gardeners). Staff was absolutely delightful. Parking was available against a reasonable price. Our appartment was huge and well-equipped with a big balcony. Breakfast buffet is varied and comprehensive. The location of the hotel is another advantage: being located right in the centre of Canico, restaurants, cafes, post office,bakery, supermarket, bus stop of bus to Funchal and village square with children‘s playground are all just a few steps away, right outside of the hotel grounds. The hotel itself also has 3 different restaurants, including options for both a la carte and buffet dining. While most guests during our stay were German and English couples in the age group 55+ and the hotel does not have any special amenities for kids (such as baby pool, playground, kids club), we as young family felt very welcome by the staff and the other guests. We loved our stay and hope to be back.
A haven of tranquility
Quinta Splendida provides a glorious botanical retreat. Superb gardens, excellent spa and efficient staff. Canico itself is a marvellous location at Christmas time with much local celebration in the square - lovely to be away from the more tourist focused sites but these are only a short drive away and the bus service is excellent.
"Christmas Day Lunch"
Muito Obrigado to the restaurant staff for making our Christmas Lunch a day to remember. From the time of arrival until departure our group received a first-class service. The lunch was cooked to perfection and the hotel itself was a good venue for such a special occasion. A most enjoyable day!
