We have stayed at this Hotel many times before and intend to return next year. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The pools are excellent. The Hotels and the Gardens are well integrated to give a good ambience. The rooms are spacious and clean. The Fountain Bar is an excellent location for an evening drink. We went to two... More

Stayed for 1 week with family, the hotel is good although the rooms are a bit dated and old fashioned (but in good conditions). Should have AC in the rooms, it has only a fan in the ceiling which is good but not enough. The service is ok, however they don't clean the mini-kitchen (only after complaining...).

Just returned from a 6 day break in Funchal.We chose the Pestana Gardens after staying nearby last year and were not dissappointed by the hotel.Set in a kind of tropical garden with hundreds of different plants/bushes trees etc,very well kept grounds The staff were generally helpful. I thought the cost of food was too much for the somewhat bland food.Breakfast... More

We used the Pestana Village Garden hotel through a timeshare programme and so that was our initial reason for selection. But we were so glad we did! Most of the hotels in the funchal hotel district are almost side by side, and so if your not too particular how long your walk is into town, you have a wide array... More

A hotel which needs a bit of TLC. The room we had (1028) faced the front of the hotel and got extremely hot, but it was impossible to keep the verandah door open due to mosquitoes. The ceiling was blood-spattered - obviously due to previous guests encounters with said mosquitoes, and could have done with a wash. And the walls... More

We selected the Pestana Village Garden Resort Aparthotel for our honeymoon. We had read some great reports about it. When we arrived we were not disappointed. The reception staff made us very welcome and told us that they had upgraded us to a junior suite and when we got to our room we found a bottle of champagne waiting for... More

We stayed in the 'village' part of the hotel. Our room was clean and spacious. The bed was made up of two large single beds pushed together made with clean white bedding. There were plenty of towels including 2 pool towels which were sometimes tatty when replaced. The small 'kitchen' area had a modern kettle, cutlery, crockery, glasses, fridge, two... More

We stayed here for a week, b+b, with friends and had a wonderful time. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious, with a small kitchenette, huge beds, big bathroom and a lovely terrace and all were cleaned every day by a very hard working maid. The food was very good, and there was plenty of... More

Stayed for 2 weeks, September 2012. Weather fantastic. The gardens are as lovely as ever (stayed here at least 6 times as we have timeshare in June at this resort). The staff are all excellent and very friendly. The apartments are cleaned daily with plenty of bedding and towel changes. Position opposite Reids is ideal for both Funchal centre and... More
