Great appartments with gardens, well maintained. Pool area, with greased area, friendly staff. Also Miramara Restaurant, which we used many times in our two week stay, excellent service, delicious food. I love the different areas you could sit in , especially outside in the cool of the evening. Save a bit of room for desert, they were devine.

There are 2 buildings: Garden and Ocean. Pestana Garden's rooms renovated 2015-2016. You can still smell the painted walls :) In this building you will find apartments (very very spacious). Huge balconies! Beautiful ocean views and sounds of breaking waves. For breakfast and other meals you need to go to Pestana Ocean (30 meters). Wifi free of charge, but only... More

I’m not sure why there are two separate trip advisor sites for the Pestana Ocean Bay Hotel and Pestana Gardens Ocean Aparthotel as they are actually two buildings of the same hotel, 5 meters from each other. Hence same review posted in both. We booked to stay at the Pestana Bay and on arrival were told we had been upgraded... More

There's no way this is a 4* holiday venue. We were "upgraded" to it after making our booking in Pestana Ocean Bay, which was incredibly disappointing. The apartment was large and had a balcony overlooking the sea, but that's probably the most positive thing I can say about it. The lino was peeling off the floor in the bathroom, the... More

We booked this direct with Pestana and stayed for 8 nights. The short version is, I wouldn't go back. The hotel itself is quite nice. The gardens and pool pleasant, view across the bay wonderful. I found the staff mostly professional, but many were unhelpful in an ignorant way. We only ever had breakfast, which was a blessing, meal times... More
