This hotel s ok, I would recomend it to anyone travelling with a baby, and I would stay again. The views are great but they seem to be clouding peoples judgement on the overall experience? The area is very quiet with absolutely nothing to do once you have visited the beach and taken the cliff walk (impossible if you have... More

I have stayed in a suite quite spacious and with a large balcony with ocean view (amazing to view and listen to the seagulls). Due to the weather I haven't tried the pool in the outdoor, but it has a very large lawn with a lot of chairs which you can use to enjoy the portuguese sun. The indoor pool... More

This hotel has an excellent location. With a view to two lovely beaches, Senhora da Rocha e Cova Redonda. And of course, an amazing view over the Atlantic. The rooms are very spacious. We stayed 4. Me, my wife and the girls. With a lot of space and very confortable. Nice staff.

Just got back from 4 nights stay in a family suite with kitchenette. Can't really point out anything that was not good enough. Very clean, attentive staff, good breakfast (well, the juices and coffee could've been better, but that's a 4* hotel for you!). Nice indoor swimming pool, but very plain: nothing for the little children, just a pool (it... More

Just finishing a family holiday at pestana Viking. Had an amazing week here in April. Rooms really modern and nice for a family. Stunning location on the cliffs and right next to two wonderful beaches. Also ideal place close to kid friendly attractions like zoomarine and water parks. Plus good indoor pool if weather cloudy one day. But the stand... More

We stayed out of season over Christmas and it was great. The 2 room suite was lush - much better than we expected. It offered us plenty of room for the family so that everyone wasn't on top of each other. It was immaculately clean and well equipped. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful - nothing...

Excellent stay 29th March for 5 nights in a superior sea view room. Hotel and room were spotless and the staff /customer service were excellent. Fantastic sea view, helped by high 20's weather and constant sunshine. Great touch with bottle of wine for our wedding anniversary left in our room Would highly recommend
