Just returned from a week here with my family, party of 8, ages ranged from 4 to 69. We had a fantastic time, the hotel was very clean and well kept. We went half board and enjoyed all the dinners, especially the included BBQ evening. Indoor and outdoor pools were both great. Staff were friendly in all areas. The area... More

We stayed here for a week towards the end of June. We agree with others regarding the outside of the hotel needing a lick of paint to freshen, however once inside the reception, the decor & the grounds are spotless. We arrived to find that we had been allocated a suite, room 101, which having read other reviews I felt... More

We stayed here for two weeks from 14-28 June on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel is beautifully situated on top of low cliffs and only a stones throw from lovely sandy bays. Other reviews have referred to the outside of the hotel needing a lick of paint, that may be true but the inside is good quality, comfortable... More

I've just returned today from a weeks stays at the Pestana Viking Beach. The hotel itself is beautiful inside as well as the grounds and has very friendly staff. Have to say I agree with other reviewers that the hotel needs a coat of paint externally - it doesn't have the look of a 4* from the outside. We used... More

Upon arrival first impressions of the hotel were not quite as expected, with the exterior looking a little dated and grotty. However, any skepticism was immediately put to bed on entry to the lobby. It was polished and well furnished with very welcoming reception staff who were helpful throughout the stay. We stayed in room 509 (next person to stay... More

This is actually our last night here so writing this with sadness! This is a lovely hotel-maybe not quite the 4* as advertised but still a high standard. Breakfasts are varied with a good choice.
