One of the best hotel / timeshare locations in Madeira. Excellent amenities, although more geared towards adults and a more mature guest. Staff are not only efficient, but extremely pleasant and very helpful, and keen to make your stay the best it can be.

Hotel is right by the sea, great breakfast and great pool. Customer service was beyond expectation - there was a problem with our air conditioning and as there were no other rooms available, Filipe secured us an upgraded room in another Pestana hotel nearby which was very much appreciated. Would definitely return.

We first stayed at this lovely hotel about 15 years ago, and will shortly be returning for the sixth or seventh time. It's just soooo hard to beat! A great location, almost overhanging the ocean and with lovely grounds to relax in for cocktail happy hour in the evening, before heading out to one of the nearby restaurants, of which... More

Absolutely flawless. Apartments slightly outdated but still comfortable and clean. Pool area beautiful with sea access. Table tennis, gym, sauna and steam room also there. The outdoor restaurant is AMAZING with jaw dropping views just while you eat. Be warned though all the restaurants are nice but VERY pricy. Overall 9/10.

The hotel is located on a street that leads from the main road to the Lido. It's quite a steep hill but not very far and there are restaurants all the way up and an excellent supermarket across the road so you wouldn't need to walk up the hill if you had difficulty walking. There are taxi's right outside too.... More

We have been to Madeira before and love it. This year we tried a new aparthotel and will certainly go back. We had a spacious 2 bedroomed apartment with 2 bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen, large living space and balcony. The staff were, in the main, very friendly and welcoming. Great pool area and gym (if you wanted it). Felt a... More

A lot of the rooms have sea view and a good look to the swimming pool area. The breakfast is great, inside or on the balcony surrounding the entire hotel, so it looking into the green of the hedges or the blue of the sea. A supermarkt is near and so are a lot local restaurants.
