This was our second stay at the Pestana Village the other being some six years ago. First let me say we were on an exchange into what is a time share resort, from the affliated company Seasons Holidays. We had to pay no exchange fee, or any fees when we arrived at the Village, unlike those guest who had exchanged... More

Pestana Village is a Time Share complex plus Hotel alongside the Miramar Hotel and Time Share apartments. The complex is superb with fine tropical gardens, three pools and gymnasium/health centre. 'Time-shares' can be dubious but this over the past twelve years has been outstanding, close to Reid's Hotel and many superb restaurants including the Miramar.- People with whom we talked... More

We spent four days of our holiday at the Pestana Garden Village, we had a excellent quiet room with a sea view! This was a bonus, very comfortable room with a mini kitchen, fridge ,sink, two ring hob & kettle ect. Buffet breakfast was included, plenty of choice and well organised, apart from the visiting pigeon trotting around the dining... More

Lovely apartment and close to all amenities. Staff good and helpful. Vouchers for breakfast a good deal but pricey for dinners. Pool bar good and snacks reasonable. Entertainment poor but did not matter to us as we went out locally.

My partner and I stayed 1 week at the Pestana Village in early September. We'd been a bit hesitant given mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, but were really pleased with our choice. It's a small-ish hotel, low-rise, cute pool area, with a bit of a "colonial" feel (all terracotta and tiles and lovely gardens). Good location on the eastern end of... More

The hotel is quite unique in its setting surrounded by beautiful gardens and is not the usual high rise hotel block, having only four floors. The breakfast is various and the pool is very big.

We have been regularly visiting the Pestana Village for the past 10 years even though we do not have a Holiday Ownership.

The rooms are more than adequate with large beds, seating/ dining area, TV... More

Breakfast perfect. Rooms are ok. Reception people were perfect. But the best was the bar team. To little place for the cars at the hotel area.

Steer well clear - their restaurant staff ruined our holiday, refusing us service without a tip. We found XTonal Restaurant to be excellent food and service, but the first two nights we didn't know about it, and despite their room upgrade, it was a bad experience. Not too fussed on the steep terrain either. The bus dropped us off to... More
