We spent a week at this hotel last May and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Right beside the ocean with wonderful views of the sea and coastline. All inclusive offered us a good choice of meals, and adequate drinks. My only issue were the hard beds, which made sleeping very uncomfortable. On leaving we mentioned this to...

Polite helpful staff, clean rooms, great food and drink selection, amazing views from hotel. Free bus in to Funchal quick and easy. Beds a bit hard and Italian restaurant closed in December. But overall a lovely experience.

Stayed on 5th floor in comfy room with a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean, all the rooms face the sea and so have a similar view. Free bus to Funchal was good and reliable. Staff were helpful and very pleasant. Well maintained and clean. We will certainly return here in the future. Very satisfied from Abingdon.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the hotel was lovely and staff were really friendly and helpful!! Food was great and so much choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, only drawback was that we were expecting a heated swimming pool but when we got there it was very cold - too cold for our baby unfortunately! Wouldn't hesitate to...

The good: - View from the room is great; all rooms are facing the ocean, and the hotel is basically on the beach. - The room was generally clean. The bad: - No WiFi in the room. It's the 21st century; motels, hostels, and grandma's attic has it, so a hotel should have it too. Planning your next day's trip...

I travelled with Jet2 Holidays to the Pestana Bay for a week with my elderly mother. When we arrived at the hotel we were allocated room 1009 on the ground floor. I was initially slightly disappointed that we were so low down but it worked out really well as there were a few steps out of reception and then only...

Very good hotel .Friendly efficient staff. Very clean. Lovely comfortable beds bedding and towels. The food could have been hotter and there was always a crowd around the coffee machines at breakfast. From a personal point of view I would have liked some chairs in the swimming pool area..

We spent an enjoyable week at this hotel on our first ever bridge holiday. The rooms/apartments are of decent size, clean, comfortable and well equipped (with a full kitchenette, which would seem OTT for an all inclusive resort). Each room has a balcony and full south facing sea view. An unexpected bonus for us was that the hotel completed the...
