Well appointed rooms with everything you could want for your stay. The beds are huge! You can get 4 pillows across from one side to the other! All rooms have a sea view. Beautifully kept grounds with staff that want to help you. The Bar and restuarant are a little more expensive than avaerage but that reflects the type of guest (in other words they charge what the gurst can afford to pay). Pool facilities are terrific and we never had a problem getting a sunbed etc. If you want to eat outside of the hotel, there a a number of really good restuarants to choose from, such as the Restuarant Lido (overlooks the sea and great fish), the best Pizza and Salad I have ever tasted at a little place opposite the Pestana Palms Hotel (on the hill) and many more. We liked it so much, we have bought a time share there! Loads to see and do on the Island and a great golf course at Palheiro.
