Hotel

Hotel of a high standard, stunning ocean view location . However hotel located in a very isolated location not accessible to local transport , you have to climb a very steep and pass through a tunnel to get to the top of the road which takes appox 15-20 mins to walk. Hotel does provide a hourly shuttle service to Funchal that finishes in the evening at 6 . Funchal is only accessible then by taxi which costs between 10-15 Euro's . I would recommend the hotel but not for individuals who like to get about and have walking difficulties.

Fabulous Hotel

Just back from a short stay in Pestana Ocean View, arrived in the dark and when we looked out of balcony in the morning - Wiw !! All rooms have a fantastic sea view or garden, the hotel was very clean, food excellent with lots of choice. Staff couldn't of done more to help, they were kind, considerate and above all pleasant. Will definately be back. Room 510 was amazing, large and roomy. Definately worth paying little extra for junior suite.

A brilliant place to stay

This is a brilliant place to stay . My husband and I enjoyed our stay and was impressed with how clean the hotel was . It is right on the ocean front with sea views . There is garden area to sunbathe as well as a big pool with plenty of sunbeds. The food was really good and there was always different foods with plenty to chose from . The hotel staff could not be any nicer . We will definitely return .

Maderia Rocks

Lovely hotel in a very good position, central to walk into Funchal and Camara de Lobos and the walking was relatively easy. However the free bus to Funchal was ecxcellent as it took you right to the Marina which was a long walk in heat or if you are not so able. Only having experienced 'all inclusive' once before this exceeded expectation. The food was pleasant, plenty of choice and you could eat practically all day. The room was wonderful with a lovely sea view, it was clean, tidy and plenty big enough. I assume the lower floors do not have a sea view but maybe they are cheaper. I don't think there was a lot of entertainment but that was not a problem as it is not 'our thing' anyway. I enjoyed my holiday and would definitely return.

The best thing about my stay was...

Not cooking.

You get what you pay for

Whilst the hotel was clean and the food was nice, I can honestly say that we will not be staying at this hotel again. It was too far out of town for us and there was nothing to do outside the hotel at night. The walkway on the prom outside was damaged so there was no pedestrian access towards Funchal at all except the long - and steep- way around. The all-inclusive was from 11 am till 11 pm and then the bar closed all-together. There was no option to purchase named brands if the local brands were not to your choice, there was only ever one barman on so there was always a queue and the beer came in 20cl glasses which is less than half a pint so refills were required frequently even if you were not a big drinker. Our room was a nice size and well apportioned but the water pressure was poor for the shower and it was difficult to get the temperature right. We also had a room on the ground floor which opened up to the garden. This sounds nice but it meant we had to have the net curtains closed all day as people could look in as they passed. Also, because of the trees, we could not see the sea. I cannot comment on the pool or spa services as we did not use them. Restaurant staff were really friendly but reception staff were not.

The best thing about my stay was...

Wide range of mealtimes

excellent hotel

This is a lovely hotel in a wonderful position. Rooms are very spacious and very clean. Staff at the hotel were really helpful and friendly. Pool area was large and very clean. Food was different every day and well organised. Hotel free bus to city every half hour which was great and very reliable. The only thing I would say it that most of the guests were probably 60+ which was fine as it meant there weren't any kids around. But for those with kids there's not a lot for them to do. Would definitely recommend and hopefully visit again.

The best thing about my stay was...

size of rooms and location
