We have spent in Pestana 10 days in September 2014, localization of this hotel is just perfect next to beautiful beach Armacao de Peira with beautiful view. Hotel is renovated, rooms have been cleaned everyday. We just had breakfast which could be better (more hot meals) but it was enough. Indoor pool and outdoor also very nice. This is a... More

Just come back from Portugal yesterday after a really nice stay at the Pestana Viking. It is a lovely hotel with very comfortable rooms which are well equipped, it even had a small kitchen area with a sink, fridge and microwave. There was also a balcony, but beware of the seagulls! We ate in the restaurant for the buffet breakfast... More

Pestana Viking is an old hotel that from the outside is not bonny. However, the views and grounds are spectacular. We once saw some whales swimming past! The two bedded apartment we had afforded plenty of room for my wife and I and also out son and his partner. The hotel has good facilities and a reasonable restaurant. There is... More

At 42 euro per room per night, bed & breakfast, this is excellent value for some winter sun. Beautiful location. Stunning sea views. Lovely room with well equipped kitchenette. Luxurious bathroom. Friendly, helpful staff. I will definitely return!

Good all round hotel by the beach. Car required to move around. Rooms are decorated to a good standard and clean but decor is slightly dated. Outside pool is a mix of fresh and salt water. Buffet breakfast is good. Dinner was slightly below average and choice was limited
