      This hotel was excellent the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Sonia on the reception desk. She helped us so many times including sorting our Covid-19 test. The only thing we didn’t like was the evening meals because it was not what we liked to eat! That was okay we used to visit different ones in Funchal. The rooms were clean and bright would visit again

      The house is unique in that it is situated in the beautiful Palheiro Gardens. One could spend a whole day relaxing and ambling around looking at the beautiful flowers and trees. Breakfast provides a wide choice from which to chose and with eggs and omelettes cooked to order

      Ok. Ma da un 5 stelle cu si aspetta di piu’

      Bella struttura immersa nel verde e vicino al campo da golf. Possibile fare lunghe passeggiate anche se non segnalate. Infatti rischi di finire nel bel mezzo del campo da golf ed è pericoloso. Ci hanno fatto upgrade in stanza piu nuova e piu grande con vasca e doccia anche se senza bidet. Doccia perdeva acqua e allagava tutto il bagno. Per covid sauna e chiusa ma si puo usare poscina outdoor e idromassaggio ma ambiente non e riscaldato perche le finestre devono stare aperte per normativa covid. Consigliamo di tenere chiusa tutta la Spa Buona la colazione con prodotti freschi e preparata al momento Personale gentile. Stanza pulita e spaziosa. Letto comodo

      Schönes Hotel mit einigen Kritikpunkten

      Sehr schönes Hotel, tolle & ruhige Lage. Einzige Lärmquelle sind die Zimmertüren, welche praktisch nicht leise zu öffnen / schliessen sind.. Empfang sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Restaurantangestellte leider nicht alle motiviert & freundlich. Getränkekarte der Bar dürfte reichhaltiger sein. Speisekarte im Restaurant nebst Daily Menue ebenso; mehr Auswahl wäre top. Shuttle nach Funchal 2x am Morgen ist nicht ausreichend. Ebenso Shuttle Service vom Clubhouse zurück ins Hotel: am Abend um 18h der letzte! Wer im Clubhouse zu Abend isst muss ins Hotel laufen! Zimmerausblick irreführend: hatten zum Golf Course gebucht und schauten direkt an eine Mauer. Zimmerwechsel zwar möglich nach einer Nacht, aber wirklichen Blick auf den Golfplatz hat kein einziges Zimmer. Dasselbe mit Gartenblick; schade!

      Netheid kamer is minder. Reeds 2x gebleven in vergelijkbare quinta jardins do lago en dit hotel is onvergelijkbaar qua netheid en vriendelijkheid van personeel. De Jardins do Lago is dan ook wel echt uitzonderlijk te noemen. Zelden zo een goed hotel gezien met zo een gedreven personeel. De Casa Velha do Palheiro heeft het van zijn prachtige ligging, accomodatie en nabij gelegen park. Personeel is ok maar zeker niet op niveau van het ander genoemd hotel. De kamers waren qua faciliteiten ok maar ook niet op niveau van de jardins do Lago. Bijvoorbeeld verschillende spinnenwebben in de kamer. Zelfs 5 kleine spinnen moeten doden bij ontvangst kamer. Is geen ramp en het is logisch bij een hotelkamer die zich meer in de natuur bevindt maar achter de tv bijvoorbeeld was volgens ons zeer lang niet gepoetst. Groot spinnenweb met spin erin. Ook bijna geen sponcontacten om gsm e.d..op te laden. Beide lakens waren niet helemaal proper. Het andere hotel had bijvoorbeeld usb aansluiting langs nachtkastje. Algemeen zou ik dit hotel een 7 a 8 geven en allicht voor golfers eerder aanbevelen maar voor mensen die zoals wij, louter voor wandelingen daar waren, zijn er betere alternatieven. De spa niet gebruikt maar wel bezocht. Ziet er wel topklasse uit.

      remarques générales

      Nous étions situés au RDC, avec un petit jardinet, sans vue golf (alors que j'avais commandé avec vue sur le golf ou sur le jardin). L'hôtel est entouré de jardins remarquables sur plusieurs hectares (donc trés calme et reposant). Il est accolé à un golf. C'est incontestablement le point fort de cet hôtel. Il y a peu de bruits superflus. Le restaurant de l'hôtel est trés bien (celui du golf nettement moins - il n'a aucun intérêt sauf pour le coucher de soleil). Le personnel est attentif. L'hôtel est relativement bien tenu (surtout l'intérieur de la bâtisse principale), même si son côté surrané pourrait gêner certaines personnes. Nous avons regretté l'absence de fonctionnement du spa et des services y attachés (pas de compensation spontanée). Les services proposées n'étaient pas toujours fonctionnels. A noter que la piscine extérieure ferme à 18H00 et que l'hôtel est situé à l'extérieur de la ville (20'), qu'il faut une voiture pour s'y rendre même si l'hôtel possède une navette et qu'il faut savoir conduire en l'état de routes extrêmement abruptes et tortueuses.
