We had 10 nights self catering at this hotel and we had a wonderful stay. Although the kitchen was basic we were able to cook lovely breakfasts & evening meals using wonderful local ingredients. Everything was very clean & we had daily maid service. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. The location is perfect for strolling into Funchal & being able to use the facilities at the Pestano Casino Hotel was the icing on the cake. We were very lucky to get a room overlooking the pool & with a sea view. Madeira is beautiful & we will go again & definitely stay here again. PS make sure to take a corkscrew for the excellent value bottles of local wine & if you intend to cook also a sharp knife lol

We had a great stay and all the staff were really friendly and helpful, especially Iolanda at reception. It's an ideal location as the main part of Funchal is not to far away and there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. The rooms were well equipped with everything you needed.

The most poorly equipped self-catering accommodation we have ever seen. No dinner plates, no wine glasses, no sharp knife, no coffee maker, no corkscrew (!) etc. etc. Kitchenette area infested with ants. (Staff not surprised, and other guests had same problem. Fixed with insecticide spray, but staff should have done that beforehand!) Shower drain largely blocked, limiting duration of use so as to avoid overflow flooding apartment: (Reported first day, still not fixed when we left a week later.)

This is the sister "studio" block that is next door to the Pestana Casino Park complex. Don't let this put you off. What you have is a set of self-contained mini-studios, daily cleaning, and amazingly helpful Pestana desk team, at less cost than the main Park hotel complex... BUT... you have access to all of the Casino Park facilities (pool, gym, heated spa pool, jacuzzi, rooftop pool, bars, etc). If you want a more private and quiet stay I would recommend the Studios over the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a great stay at Pestana Casino Studios on our first visit to Madeira. All the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. We had a deluxe studio room with balcony at the back of the building overlooking the outdoor swimming pool and garden area which had a balcony. The room was very comfortable and clean. It had a kitchenette area which was very handy if you wanted to prepare snacks etc. The kitchenette included a microwave oven, fridge, hot plate, kettle, crockery, and cutlery and also included a pack with washing up liquid, cloths and a sponge. The shower in the bathroom was excellent too with plenty of hot water. Our stay included breakfast which was over in the larger adjacent hotel. This had a good selection of hot and cold items. We didn’t use the facilities in the main hotel but had access to all of them. The location is good being close to the centre of Funchal with good transport links including buses. There are plenty of restaurants nearby within a short walking distance including a number on the opposite side of the road. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

Very good service and combinate package with Casino Park hotel, pools and food. Special thanks to Iolanda, for the sincerity and attitude, always positive and smiling. We booked a sea view room which was cleaned daily. The room has everything you need for your stay including an excellent small kitchen. Overall a great base for visiting the island and also a bonus that you can use the facilities over at the main hotel, especially the pool. Close to city center, just walking distance. Good restorans and pubs across the corner.

We had a great 2 week stay at Pestana Casino Studios. The friendly, ever happy and helpful Helena on reception checked us in and set the tone for a great holiday. We booked a sea view room which was cleaned daily by the hard working cleaners. The room has everything you need for your stay including an excellent ac system as our visit was during the unexpected October heatwave. Overall a great base for visiting the island and also a bonus that you can use the facilities over at the main hotel, especially the pool. I recommend the bakery across the road for light snacks and cakes and also the Italian restaurant "Bernini" on the road down behind the studio and also further along that road the Arraial da Imperatriz - 4 independent eateries in one building, lovely food, service and reasonably priced.

We stayed here for 9 nights. It was just what we wanted with the option of using the facilities in the bigger hotel over the road but having the studio room. Good size fridge, plates, cups etc meant we could eat lunch in or make sandwiches etc. Rooms are a good size and had all we needed including a hairdryer which was handy. The pool area is really quiet throughout the day so always beds/umbrellas available. We also used the bigger pool at Pestana casino hotel (over the road) again, plenty of beds/umbrellas available all day. We had breakfast at the larger hotel each morning which had a great selection - hot and cold breakfast bits, cereals, fruits etc etc. Soya/almond milk available, just ask the staff who were very friendly and helpful. All staff at both hotels were helpful and friendly and whenever we asked for something, it was done quickly. Location wise, there is plenty of restaurants just outside the hotel and a delicious bakery over the road. Also a small supermarket shop just down the hill at the back for essentials. You can also walk down into Funchal for even more restaurants (10-15 min walk downhill). All in all, great place to stay and would recommend.
