All started well, friendly receptionists, informative and amenable particularly as we arrived just as lunch commenced and having been informed our "all inclusive" would not commence until after 15.00pm, i pointed out the other side of the deal i.e that the "all inclusive" would end at 12.00pm on the last day of our weeks stay but we would be leaving...

Good hotel right on the Praia Formosa seafront, stayed here in June 2014. Rooms are very clean and reasonably well appointed for the money; beds are very comfortable. All public areas are cleans and well looked after (although the hotel could do with its own public internet access rather than relying on a router servicing the MEO Portuguese public internet...

Myself and my husband have just returned from this hotel. We really enjoyed our stay, the food is good, the rooms are large and very clean. The public areas are very nice and well kept.The staff are all lovely and very friendly. We were first given a room on the lower groundfloor which we didn't like because you can't see... More

Stayed at the Pestana Bay in February, we loved it, breakfast choices tended to be somewhat limited, but the evening entertainment was often hilarious, if a little tragic. There's not a great deal to do in the hotel, the pool is great and the bar comes in handy, but if you're wanting to explore the island this is the perfect... More

We stayed here during May 2014. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Good customer service. When we arrived the room was not suitable so they changed our room next day. Overall the staff made our stay a pleasant time. We would like to bring to the attention of potential customers of a holiday company called hot deal holidays... More

We enjoyed our one week break at the Pestana Bay. We had been to Funchal in September 2013 and returned this time as a last minute booking. Our intention was to have a quiet break without trips and catch up on some sun and reading. It worked out fine. The location of the hotel isn't perfect but you have the... More

Arrived home , yesterday,from staying a week at this hotel. Our room was on the first floor and had beautiful views of the well, kept garden and sea. There were some trees in front of us but they added to the view and did not completely hide the sea view.The hotel is spotless and rooms are cleaned every day. The... More

Spent four days there, on NYE, the hotel is located in front of a beautiful beach. There is a parking lot - you are going need a car while in the island. The rooms are huge, and you have a beautiful ocean view. The staff is helpful. What I didn't like, actually, was the food and drinks. Just sounds superficial,... More
