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

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

My friend and I (both pensioners) stayed here from 9-23 June. Room was on first floor with stunning views from balcony, outside of which was a roof garden. Room was comfortable and cleaned everyday. The staff were very welcoming when we arrived and throughout our stay were always polite and friendly. Most guests seemed to be 50+ including wheelchair users,... More

Just returned from our holiday at the Pestana Bay hotel. The hotel itself and the eating areas are very clean, however the cleanlieness of the room varied from day to day. Some days the bathroom was spotless - clean towels, sink area and floor washed yet other days only some towels were changed and the bed made. This wasn't a... More
