People want different things from hotels. The factors which have attracted my wife and myself for over twenty visits to The Palms are as follows - superb location on the edge of the sea in attractive well tended gardens; all rooms have a sea view at no extra cost; the reception, bar, Bistro and public areas are separate from the...

An inexpensive hotel that is a little dated but is very friendly and clean. Rooms are good sized and comfortable with a small kitchen alcove. The towels and tablecloths were thin and well past their replacement date. The poor aspect which blights many Funchal restaurants was the quality of the food. There was a reasonable choice at breakfast of fruit,... More

We stayed here over Xmas 2013. We were in the block behind the circular tower and the apartments here are spacious, very clean and very well equipped. We booked it through an agent. It was a timeshare apartment but no one hassled us. In fact the timeshare rep was a very nice guy who came to our room and gave... More

We stayed at this wonderfully situated timeshare/hotel resort for the tenth year and still find it the most enjoyable place in Madeira. The location is right on the sea edge but only 50 yards from a much enlarged Pingo Doce supermarket. The accommodation is first class with maid service daily. All the staff are first rate and so friendly. The... More

I am disabled and cannot walk far. Shops are just the other side of the road. Getting to areas in the hotel are fairly easy. Some slopes and odd stairs but if you are careful and go slow its quite manageable. Rooms are great with lovely balcony. Kitchen is basic with 2 ring top and a microwave/oven grill.Trick is to...

We stayed at the Pestana Palms for ten nights from 26 January 2014. It was our second visit. We stayed in a superior studio giving plenty of space, and including a sink, two hobs and fridge situated just as you enter and out of sight from the main part of the room. Breakfast is taken in a sunny restaurant with... More
