The only hotel on the beach on the whole island. Great view, great service average but lot's of food. Transportation to and from Funchal free with hotel's private busses. I am defently recommended for summer vacations on the Atlantic.

Hotel very nice, room very clean. All staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel is situated away from town but free shuttle bus available. Didn't find much to do but did enjoy just relaxing. Beach is all pebbles and if you want to swim in the sea be sure to wear beach shoes, not the most easy getting in to swim... More

First visit to the pretty but much bigger island of Madeira than we thought. After a hair raising second attempt landing we had a fast but enjoyable transfer to the hotel. Slightly disappointed to get a first floor room as we had requested a higher one but overall it wasn't too noisy and still had a good View. We thoroughly... More

Just returned from 7 days at the Pestana Bay. There was a slight mix up with our rooms (party of 3 couples) but Mariana was extremely helpful and went out of her way to ensure we were all happy with our new rooms, sending Champagne, a free massage, waiving the charge for the safety deposit, giving us a curtesy room...

My partner and I have just returned from a week in the Pestana Bay. It is a lovely place with wonderful views. We had a room on the 7th floor looking out across the bay. The staff are so pleasant and work really hard from morning until night. The rooms are cleaned daily and fresh towels provided. They even provide... More

On our arrival we were greeted by Marianas, who had, it turned out, dealt personally with my e-mailed requests for flowers (at my expense) to be quietly left in our room to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. Not only was our room, on the 6th floor, clean, spacious and with a view to die for, but the flower display was... More
