We visited this hotel in February last year and enjoyed it so much, we were keen to return and visit the island at a different time of year. We were greeted very warmly as repeat customers by Mariana who ensured that we were placed in a room of our liking (room 402 fantastic view of the ocean) and kindly provided... More

Just returned from a 14 night holiday at this hotel. The hotel is situated about a 15 minute bus/taxi ride from Funchal. The biggest selling point of the hotel is its situation – literally on a pebble beach. All rooms have a sea view. Our room was on the 5th floor and the view was spectacular. To be honest –... More

Having been to the Island several times before, I expected to do a bit of walking, but what I didn't expect was the great value for money that this 10 day holiday turned out to be. Having never tried All Inclusive before, I didn't know what to expect and, to be honest, I thought it was more than acceptable for... More

Our room was on the second floor, quite a large room, with basic kitchen facilities and a good sized fridge which kept drinks really cold. No air con but the ceiling fan did the job. Food was very good for all inclusive. Good selection at breakfast and lunch, and we ordered from the vegetarian menu for dinner. Make sure you... More

Very lovely staff, greeted on arrival and everything explained to us. The hotel was full and so we were given a free upgrade onto the top floor. Room was amazing and spotlessly clean. All staff very friendly and said hello to us on passing, bar staff extremely busy but nothing too much trouble and always pleasant. We hadn't been all... More

Well there is NO AIR CONDITIONING in public areas nor in our Junior Suite, as I paid extra for the luxury I expected it. It is MILES from anywhere. There are places but you have to be prepared to walk up very steep hills &/or lots of steps. Great if you are fit enough, if you are not tough! I... More

We booked direct with Pestana after a nice stay in a Pestana at the Algarve. After booking I contacted the hotel to book a taxi, as we landed in Funchal, the driver was there waiting for us. We arrived at the hotel around midday, and were checked in immediately. Although we didn't specify a sea view, we were given a... More
