As a lone traveler, I very much enjoyed my stay at Pestana Ocean Bay Hotel. The rooms are clean, the food excellent and varied. The staff (reception, restaurant, bar, room service) were fantastic. They were very kind and friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was fine.

There’s so much that’s very good about this hotel, however there are things that aren’t. Top of the good things are the staff who are without exception friendly and helpful. Our Junior Suite was huge, by far the biggest space we’ve had in 40 years of holidays. The view out over the sea from the big balcony is astonishing –...

It was our first visit to Madeira and what caught our eye was the keen price coupled with the beach front location. We also took into account the star rating. I have no negative comments about the hotel but I still would like to mention some positives. Some of these were location, friendliness and helpfulness of all staff, cleanliness everywhere,...

An old hotel but nicely located on the beach . Rooms are a good size but now rather dated. With very few exceptions the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food selection was quite limited but was well prepared and of good quality. Breakfast was very good with a great selection of breads. On the minus side: Was...

When we looked at the reviews on Tripadviser which were excellent , we thought ok rooms look a little tired. But its about location, food and service etc . Well we went on 15/05/17 and the food is boring, very little choice. Even dinner you only had choice of one meat dish and a fish dish. Then they kept running...

This was our first vist to Madeira and our first all inclusive hotel. Overall this hotel needs a major update and the menu needs more variety. However, do make sure that you book the a la carte Italian restaurant downstairs for one night for a change - there is no extra cost. We were allocated a room on the 2nd...
