Overall good, but the food needs to be hotter. Clearing and resetting tables needs to be quicker at peek times. Some of the entertainers should start smiling and look like they are enjoying being there - Sunday evening duo were superb!

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 7 nights, we are pleased to say we had a very good time here. The hotel is about 30 yards to the beach, if you like to walk on the beach or swim in the sea, the location is perfect for you. The hotel is outside of the Funchal, but the... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Yes, the rooms may be dated but they are clean and comfortable. The sea view balconies are a little small, but big enough for two to sit at the table. The beds were firm and comfortable, the pillows were however a little strange, very big and soft, not to my liking at all. Despite... More

We have stayed there for 7 nights in July 2015. Everything was just perfect: location, hotel, service, food. There are not many hotels on the beach in Funchal and this one is on the pebble and black sand (few mins further by walk) beach. Room was very clean and spacious. No complains about food. All staff was excellent. We really... More

Check In - We had to wait for 2 hours before our room was ready. I appreciate rooms need to be cleaned but in 2016 i do expect hotels to accommodate flights coming in. I've not had this for many years. Nowhere to put cases as reception said room was for departing guests only. Not the best start. Room -... More

We had a great week at this hotel. The staff are all excellent and the food is varied and delicious. Try and get an apartment in the building next to the main hotel. It has it's own pool and is a lot quieter and you have a better chance of getting a sunbed. The apartments are very large with fantastic... More

Really didn't know what to expect from our first trip to Madeira, but it was nothing short of perfect. Funchal is a wonderful mix of authentic Madeiran charm and modern city centre. The coastal walk from the hotel to the harbour is a delight, with lots of places to stop for a drink and a bite to eat. The free... More

We spent 2 weeks in this lovely hotel on this beautiful island, the weather was perfect although, sadly, we were there at the time of the fire. The big smoke cloud and the smell didn't worry us but we were concerned for the local residents, a sad time for the island. The hotel is very nice but needs more seating!... More

My husband and I visited the Pestana Bay Hotel on the 22nd July 2016 for 2 weeks. We had never visited Madeira before, but had been told it was a beautiful island, we were not disappointed. It is known by the islanders as the Swiss cheese Island because of all of the tunnels. It is a hilly island and so... More
