Once again we enjoyed our stay at the Pestana Carlton fo 10 days (June-July 2013). the Room was as expected, clean and comfy and spacious, just enough for the two of us. We booked a room facing the pool area and the ocean. Fantastic view. Pool areas are very nice and enjoyable. The weather was great, which made it even more enjoyable. Would just like to make a couple of observations, tha we feel may be worth mentioning.1) if you are a non-smoker, even thought the rooms are non-smoking, the balconies are not, and we always had a smell of smoke everytime we opened the door to our balcony. Was a bit annoyed, because we would have liked to keep the door open v/s the AC during the night, however, the smoke smell kept us from doing that. 2) the restaurant meals, at the hotel, we found a little on the expensive side (when spending dollars). $32euros per person for the buffet dinner was a little too much compared to other restuarants in the area. We like the fact that the hotel is a 15 minute walk from Funchal, as it gave us a chance to walk. Several restaurants within walking distance, and right outside the hotel. For a drink after dinner, or a light sandwich you can't beat PUB No. 2 right across the street from this hotel with free and fast Wifi. All in all a good experience.
