Have just spent an excellent, relaxing week at the medium size Bay Hotel. The hotel was pretty full but the staff always had time to make the visit go smoothly.

We stayed at the Pestana Bay as a group of 7, a family of 3 with a 5 year old and two sets of elderly grandparents. Journey from the airport by taxi took about 15 mins ( a rather hair raising fast drive along a dual carriageway culminating in one grandparent asking the driver how long had this been a... More

We stayed here for a week in July. The hotel is good and having a room on the 4th floor was lovely overlooking the sea. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We found the free hotel bus that went to Funchal very useful as there isn't that much to do in the immediate area surrounding the hotel. The pool... More
