Myself and my fiancé stayed here for the last few days of January into February. The weather was lovely and sunny. This is the first time in Funchal and also the first time in a Pestana hotel, but I can definitely say, we would consider coming back. We stayed B&B and our room was on the ground floor. We had a lovely view of the sea through the gardens. We were also 2 minutes away from the indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna. My fiancé used these more than I did, but I did use them and they were great. The outdoor swimming pools were extremely cold, but after a few hours in the sun, it was just what you needed. The food for breakfast was plentiful, varied and good tasting. You could not ask for anything else. The location of the hotel is also good. You can get to the promenade from the door by the pool and this takes you on some lovely sea view walks. I would recommend this hotel to others, but be prepared for the fact that madeira is a quiet place, where eating and having a few gentle drinks at night is the way of life. Lovely relaxing spot to go on a weeks break.
