Just 45 minutes drive from the airport and you arrive at the lovely area of Senhora da Rocha where the Pestana takes pride of place. Beautiful surroundings - it is situated majestically above the beautiful limestone cliffs and sandy beaches. Straight forward check-in from pleasant, friendly reception staff, lift up to the room which housed a comfortable queen size bed,... More

Breakfast buffet was good but we didn't have dinners there. Lovely italian restaurant up the road and a local mini market... More

Pestana Viking is a nice good quality hotel. Best thing was absolutely the aqua therapy. Very nice guy making good water-gym training for people living in the hotel. Unfortunately they cancelled the whole aqua therapy. Hopefully they start it again soon. Hopefully its possible to make also next year! Thank you so much for the extra good quality trainer!

The location of the hotel is exceptional. Right in front of the beach with a magnificent view to the Atlantic Ocean. The service is adequate and the breakfast not being extraordinary is quite acceptable. The main problem is the low soundproofing of the rooms. One can easily hear people carrying their trolleys in the corridor or dragging the chairs in... More

The hotel is beautifully sited overlooking the ocean, cliffs and beaches. We had a sea view room with balcony and thoroughly enjoyed the view and the balcony. We were on half board so used the kitchenette to prepare our lunches. There is a new supermarcado just up the road from the hotel with everything we needed plus more. The staff... More

We recently stayed here on our "mini moon" and had a fantastic stay, staff were very helpful! Bar was very generous with their spirit pouring, food was good and the indoor pool and spa were brilliant! Highly recommend, any season there is something for you to enjoy!

I got a very cheap last minute deal to this hotel, so wondered whether its advertised four star status would actually be real, but it was probably deserved. The central atrium of the building rises from the reception floor to the seventh floor, with most of the rooms leading off corridors around this, and it is is vast and not... More

Great hotel in perfect location away from the usual noisy hotels. When we arrived the booking company had not booked our room, this was quickly sorted and soon forgotten. Breakfast was perfect and buffet style with additional option of cooked. Would recommend the hotel for a get away and a bargain break to escape the English rain. We traveled from... More

We stayed at Pestana Viking one night at the end of January. Nice hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast. We did make a note at a rime if booking that double bed is required. We had a room with double bed.
