We stayed in the Quinta Victoria apartment from 4th to 11th August 2017 and could not have been more impressed with the apartment and the service provided by Peter and his team. The pool was beautiful, always clean and never busy. We used the taxi service recommended by Peter and that was the right decision, particularly as our flight was slightly late getting in. Our driver was in touch with Rita who was there on arrival at the apartment to meet us and show us round. The apartment is in a very convenient location with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. I have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Maderia. Thank you to Peter and his team for a great holiday, we will return to the apartment in the future.

The apartment is spacious and well-equipped and is close to Forum Madeira for shopping. Wonderful views of the bay and cliffs from the balcony. Martim is very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
