We stayed here for 2 nights in August.
I know the island well and visit every year. This is the most expensive hotel on the island so I expected it to be the best.
The location is awful. It is situated on the worst bit of beach. The sand isn't golden and the sea has rocks everywhere.
If you stay at any other hotel the beach is excellent.
You can't walk any where from this hotel as it is in a bad spot.
The food choice is mainly buffet. Limited choice, vegtables are not fresh and I got very bored after 3 days.
The staff were nice.
The island of Porto santo is so beautiful it's a real shame that you don't get to see it when in the pestanna.
If you want a standard all inclusive resort full of children and basic food you'd probably love it. If not you'd be disappointed!
