On arrival we were greeted by the ever smiling Mariana. Check in was quick and painless, everything explained well. We upgraded to a suite (619) which was well worth the money, good sized living area and a huge bedroom, we also had 2 bathrooms so we were basically ready at the same time at night. Some trips say the food... More

My wife and I booked this hotel with no idea what it was like. There was a 35 minute transfer from the airport and as soon as we booked in we felt we were in for a good holiday. The check in was swift and we were soon shown to a very comfortable room on the second floor. All rooms... More

Friendly staff, off the beaten track (but there's a - roughly - hourly free bus service into and out of Funchal. You can always walk the whole way of course c.50mins), ALL rooms are at the front overlooking the sea (except the ground floor rooms which have patio doors and you walk out into the garden), good food - bit...

Good Hotel with an excellent location and fantastic sea views. We stayed as a couple for a week in August and found the Hotel very relaxing and in a perfect location overlooking the beach. The hotel was mainly for couples and would agree with other reviews that it is probably nearer 3 star than 4.The food was ok but we... More

Whilst viewing other reviews recently I have to wonder if we went to the same hotel! As has been said many times on tripadvisor - the staff are very good at this hotel, and are very attentive but not over the top. Of course, when catering for so many different nationalities it is difficult to please everyone - but in... More

Top notch! Staff-excellent! Room-excellent! Food -excellent! No complaints at all and cannot wait to go back.We found the Portuguese people very friendly and knew the moment we checked in we were going to love it.Hotel is situated a fair way from the town but taxis were very helpful and a courtesy bus available.

Well, we have stayed at nearly all the 'Pestana' Hotels on Madeira over the years, this is the first time we have done 'all inclusive' and you get what you pay for, saying that, we only stayed for 4 days so this suited us as a 'chill out' start to our 14 day holiday, you get up eat/lie on a...
