This aparthotel is located in a peaceful area of the resort in landscaped gardens. Our studio (2104) balcony overlooked the pool. Although this is one of Pestana's older resorts it was well maintained. All the staff that we came into contact with were friendly & polite.
The nearby Spar shop stocks the basics but is expensive, but for 56 euros each you can purchase six breakfasts in the restaurant. In the evening we ate out in the numerous nearby restaurants.
It is worth attending the welcome meeting to obtain your free bottle of Madeira wine & a Pestana vacation club discount card. This card gives you ten percent discount off drinks & food in local restaurants.
I would recommend Restaurant X Tonel, but book because it is popular. It serves a variety of lovely British and local food. The Pizzeria Luigi is also worth a mention.
Both restaurants are only a couple of minutes walk and accept the discount card.
We only went on one organised trip, booked via the Members Rep, and that was a full day jeep safari to western side of the island. The coast & mountain scenery was stunning, and the jeep takes you to the areas that the bus tours can not access.
My only regret is that we only stayed for one week
