Got home on the 23rd July. My wife and I had a very enjoyable time. I would agree that a four star rating is ambitious for this hotel, the food is varied and plentiful but more in line with a good three star hotel. The staff are all very friendly and hospitable, our room was nice and clean if a... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely week here. The staff are so hard working,friendly and helpful. Food excellent,lots of fresh choice and all well cooked. Cocktails good but strong! A nice touch was complimentary fizzy wine that was left in our room on my birthday- we hadn't mentioned this to the staff so guess they saw my date of... More

From the moment you walk into the reception where you're greeted with a welcome drink you're made to feel welcome in a friendly and relaxed hotel. If you're looking for an activity based hotel where you get nagged every 5mins for aqua-aerobics, bowls, darts, fencing running, walking etc then this hotel is NOT for you. If you're looking for a...

We stayed for 11 nights, arriving around mid day. Check in was straight forward and the room was well appointed, clean and pleasant. All rooms have a sea view with a reasonable sized balcony. You are best having a room on the higher floors and away from the pool area, as other people were complaining about the noise from the... More

Warm welcome on arrival, had to wait for our room but staff served Madeira wine while we waited. Lovely room cleaned every day by excellent maids. Comfy beds good supply of clean linen throughout the week. T.V was very old which would not usually bother me but it was world cup football and the hotel T.V area did get busy.... More

We have stayed at Pestana Bay for 5 nights first week of July. Our stay was great, but without kidding ourselves this was purely down to one fantastic member of staff - Laura at the reception desk. Laura is an absolute customer service legend!!! Nothing was a problem for her and she always went the extra mile for all our... More
