We actually booked at the Pestano Casino Park hotel and at the last minute BA changed our hotel to the Pestano Carlton and we are very glad they did! We agree with everything the previous couple of reviewers said so I won't repeat their comments.We went breakfast only to give us the opportunity to try out some of the local restaurants,and I can thoroughly recommend the Restaurante Chalet just opposite the hotel.The cable car up to Monte is spectacular and is well worth the trip. The only negative point I would make is the bar staff in the evening are not as friendly,but apart from that we had a wonderful and relaxing stay.

We have just returned from a relaxed week in the Pestana Carlton which fortunately for us has remained open during the Covid crisis. All efforts were made by the staff and hotel to make us feel safe. These measures were most apparent in the dining room where you weren't allowed to wander at will but had to queue to be sanitised and then were given your own set of tongs to select your food. Sounds bizarre but who wants to become ill. Our room was lovely and spacious with fantastic views of the Upper pool and the sea. There's is also an Atlantic pool on the lower sea level which is full of sea water. Unfortunately the bar/restaurant is closed at the moment as is The Pub upstairs which would have been nice. The hotel is well situated being very close to the centre of Funchal so it's walkable or you can catch a bus. We used 2 lovely restaurants locally, The Chalet and the William Hemming way. There were others but as I say not everything is open at the moment. We will definitely be coming back

My wife and I visited the Pestana Carlton in Funchal. We had a great holiday and are going back next April it is a good 5 star hotel and would recommend it. The rooms and balcony some overlook one of the pool its just brilliant. And the hotel is very close to Funchal which is a very nice place.

Just back from our 6 night stay (11th to 17th October) at the Pestana Carlton - it was our 3rd stay here, 1st time for the other 2 we travelled with. We asked for 2 rooms together on a high floor, and that is exactly what we got - rooms are large and very comfortable, and ours, rooms 1617 and 1619, had awesome views over the ocean, gardens and pool. We absolutely love this hotel, and our friends did too! The way they are managing the Covid 19 situation is exemplary and we all felt very safe. The breakfasts here have always been amazing, however we weren't expecting such a good experience this time because of safety measures. How wrong we were - the whole breakfast experience was as enjoyable as ever! They still offer a buffet and they have Covid 19 secure measures down to a fine art! On entering the restaurant there is hand sanitizer, then as you enter the one-way buffet line your hands are sprayed and you are given your personal tongs which you use to pick up your food - same great selection of tasty choices! At the end you drop the tongs off and go to your table, take off your face mask, and enjoy! Brilliant system that works well - and just like a buffet you can go back again and you get fresh tongs! The hotel is clean and has a lot of charm and character. The swimming pools are great, the lower pool area also offers access to the sea for swimming. Staff are all very friendly, the pool bar serves great drinks and excellent choice of sandwiches, salads etc, with stunning views over the ocean. At the end of our stay all 4 of us agreed there was nothing about this hotel not to like. Furthermore we felt it offered fantastic value for money. A beautiful holiday - thankyou!

We booked last minute travelling with J2. We'll done to Madeira so we'll. Organised with Covid test on arrival. Hotel great we had a room facing the road, no real issues, if we returned we would try for a pool veiw. Hotel very clean. Used to pools and areas very clean as was the town. We were on half board next time we would go breakfast only. Some nice places near by. We were really surprised by funchal. Totally spotless and you feel really safe. We would return in a minute.
