Hi everyone. I have travelled the entire World working on Cruise ships and have stayed in many hotels all over the world. The Pestana Carlton comes out on top because of the really friendly staff that give excellent service. I have just completed my 53rd trip to Madeira and will return again to the Pestana Carlton for Christmas. When I... More

Our only disappointment was we arrived at around 2.30 and our room was not ready. We were offered the chance of another room right away, but the view was not what we wanted. My word, it was worth the wait as the view over the town, harbor and sea was stunning. The room was large, nicely decorated and immaculate. There... More

Spent 7days early November. Weather brilliant, warm, sunny and no rain. Read many reviews criticising room tea and coffee not being replaced, very true, but we took our own, end of problem. Other criticism was the lifts. Yes it takes time to get your head around it as the hotel is at three different levels on the edge of a... More

I stayed at the Pestana Carlton Madeira last week, having returned to this beautiful island after about ten years. This was the first visit to this hotel, but everything said by previous reviewers is absolutely right! Could not fault the rooms, service, position of hotel, and did not really need the wi-fi that people go on about, as I was... More

Lovely hotel, good location and excellent food. There are only two complaints I have, the bar staff were very unfriendly and rude, in fact apart from the lady who welcomed us in to the restaurant for breakfast most of the staff were unfriendly. Also, if you want to make a cup of tea in your room you have to pay... More

As always this hotel is excellent. Conveniently situated for local restauants and buses taxis. Rooms are always kept clean with clean towels always available. Harbour view occasionally noisy when nightclub nearby turning out. Pools and all facilities always in immaculate order.

The hotel location is right at the divider of the Funchal town area and Lido hotel area, and also, on top of a steep hill. For any elderly people the fortunate thing is that taxis are cheap and easy the get in Madeira. Our room was a suite at the 17th floor and with a view to the sea -... More

Good but not excellent overall. Our room on the 17 th floor had a lovely sea view but the narrow balcony was unnerving. Breakfast was good, all tastes accommodated, and we nearly always sat outside where it felt less crowded. The evening buffet was copious with a very wide choice. We found the salad buffet was much better than the... More

Wonderful pools. Also four indoor pools. Salt water, fresh water, heated etc... And access to the sea. There is no real beach. Very friendly staff. 10 minutes walk to centrum of Funchal. . Rooms on the Beach Club side has seen a lot of time.... But the size is good! We had around 100m2 two bedrooms and two bathrooms. But... More
