Magical retreat - nature at it's most beautiful
Reviewed 20 September, 2021
Locate above 800 meters above sea-level in the Camara de Lobos area, this pink resort lies peacefully & beautifully surrounded by greenery. Myself and a friend were greeted by Clara ( most helpful and cheerful receptionist) who gave us a brief but insightful welcome to the hotel. We were given a spacious and spotlessly clean and welcoming room in the 3rd floor with breathtaking views of the hills, sea and the garden. Lovely balcony with table and chairs for us to sit on and marvel at the inspiring views before us. We hand a sauna followed by an amazing dinner ( 3 course meal-gorgeously cooked and served by a smiley and helpful waitress. Breakfast the following day was varied, generous and delicious with local produce. All prepared and delivered in a covid-19 secured manner. All highly recommended and no doubt will return again when next in Madeira.
a bit far but high comfort and reasonable price

A great hotel, just a bit far and a bit deserted but if you like a calm retreat, a large swimming pool and a relaxing garden, it is a paradise
But do not trust your gps for arriving into it, try any alternative route and not the shortest one it would lead you through impossible small roads
Beautiful hotel for family holidays

Beautiful scenary surrounding the hotel, perfect for a relaxed stroll in the end of the day, where you get to pick organic blueberries straight from the bushes. An enormous pool is the delight of adults and children, and although it is indoors, the glass surrounding it makes you feel that you are outdoors. Rooms are confortable and spacious, with quality toiletries. Pool bar, the restaurant and breakfast have wonderful food, and the staff is very attentive. Highly recommend it.

Lovely hotel, with excellent amenities in the uplands of West Madeira. This hotel is an excellent base for some fantastic walking routes- to Nun’s Valley, Pico Grande and Encumeada. THe pool was a particular highlight. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.
Service beyond the call of duty

Quinta da Serra is a really lovely place in the mountains above Câmara de Lobos. I stayed here for two nights and it was a great base for hiking.
Although the hotel is very quiet at the moment (in fact I was the only guest in my second night), the professionalism of the staff was inspiring. It must be so difficult for them in the current climate. And I was mightily impressed by the fact that it was “business as usual” for the pool, sauna, gym etc.
The gardens are huge, and they encourage you to walk around and explore them. They grow lots of stuff which they use in the kitchen to great effect. The food was excellent, and I felt almost humbled that they laid on a full breakfast buffet for me each morning. It was great, and very much appreciated.
I wish the hotel well for the future. They impressed me a lot. And I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get into the mountains and explore.
