We booked this direct with Pestana and stayed for 8 nights. The short version is, I wouldn't go back. The hotel itself is quite nice. The gardens and pool pleasant, view across the bay wonderful. I found the staff mostly professional, but many were unhelpful in an ignorant way. We only ever had breakfast, which was a blessing, meal times... More

Hotel was in a good location - as close to the sea as it gets! Stayed in penthouse room, and had 3 king size rooms, 2 baths, and our own sun roof as well as large balcony - the space was phenominal.. Hotel was clean and quiet, just what we needed to enjoy the fantastic weather. Used shuttle bus into... More

Before you book this hotel be warned of the following facts: There is no beach, just a moon-scape of boulders and, when we were there, a JCB boulder bashing. The "village setting" includes a disused oil refinery. Nice! There is no restaurant which must be a first for a 4 star hotel. The room was a pokey airless hole. My... More

Just returned from a week over Christmas and thought the hotel was perfect if you have children. Great location on a pebbly beach and you can walk to Funchal mainly on a car free promenade (through a tunnel which is wet underfoot) most of the way which takes about 11/2 hours approx passing lots of cafes/restaurants and lidos. The only... More

We stayed at the gardens 13th -20th August ' 07. The location of pestanan gardens is wonderful; right on the beach. The cleanliness of the rooms and public areas is second to none.
