We were taken to this hotel by a local taxi driver after being diverted here from Madeira due to high winds. We had no reservation and no idea what we would find upon arrival. I agree wholeheartedly that the rooms are old and the bathrooms basic. But In the morning once the rain had passed and the sun came out,... More

We were stranded in Porto santo and taken to this hotel by our taxi driver. On a plus the staff were very friendly and helpful particularly as we arrived at 11pm. The hotel is right on the beach and extremely peaceful and quiet. The bedrooms seriously need updating. The facilities are minimal and the decor clearly not updated for many... More

Great location and easy access to great walks on the flat unlike most other Funchal Hotels. Pool side snacks are great value and well presented and served. Service from all areas of the Hotel is first class. Highly recommended.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Porto Santo Hotel. Firstly the staff are lovely and made us very welcome, the food is very good. The garden opens onto the beach (which is amazing). The sitting rooms and bar are lovely to sit in. The only negative is that the bedrooms and bathrooms seriously need to be... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Porto Santo five times since 1989 and have never been disappointed. The staff are all very friendly, the service is excellent and the food is good. Some criticism has been levelled at the building for its 1960's character but we have seen it being gradually upgraded whilst retaining the best aspects of what was... More

Was a lovely holiday not just because it was our honeymoon but from the moment we got there the staff couldn't do enough, there was a man making balloon animals for the kids on arrival handing out drinks as we got off the coach someone dressed up in a cat costume to also keep the kids entertained. The room was... More

All staff were friendly and helpful but the entertainment team were just fantastic. Food and drink were plentiful and we were sat on a beach that stretched for miles. I absolutely loved the Pestana hotel and spa and will definitely go back this year . Can't wait

Beautiful location, lovely friendly staff, particularly the Barman Mr Pedro Coutinho, whose helpfulness, manner and attitude could only be seen as a benefit to any company employing him. He definitely has management potential. Rooms a little dated and greater wifi range would be beneificial but maid service superb, food excellent. This was our second visit and we will be returning.... More
