Situated on the shoreline, the Quinta Penha de Franca hotel overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It’s also home to a swimming platform, so guests have direct access to the sea.
You’ve got two outdoor pools to choose from here. One is located just metres from the sea and comes with a paddling pool for kids, while the other is nestled into the gardens and is heated during the winter. Work on your tan on the poolside sun terraces, or find a lounger in the gardens.
If you want to explore the local area, you’re in luck. The hotel is just 300 metres from the centre of Funchal, where you can hop between shops, bars, and restaurants. The Madeira Botanical Gardens are also a must see – they're filled with blooming flowers and colourful plants. Feeling peckish while you’re out and about? Act like a local and grab some food at the farmer’s market.
Back at the hotel, you’ve got two restaurants to choose from. One is a poolside restaurant, and the other is indoors and serves up international dishes. There’s also a poolside bar for drinks and snacks. And in the evening, you can hop between the piano bar and the games bar, which is set up for darts, cards, and pool.
The rooms here are bright and simply furnished. Each one comes with a TV, a hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. If you want to treat yourself, opt for a room with a balcony or terrace – they come with views over the gardens or the sea.
