7/10 Good

07 January 2018

Great Location

Pestana villas are at a great location but the standard of the villas are basic and are in need of up grading but the location makes up for that. You can see the beach from the inside of the villas and it is in a quiet spot. The cleaners come every day to make the beds, empty the bins and clean the floors and they are lovely, They are very happy, cheerful and polite. It takes a few minutes to walk to the main building where the bar/lounge, restaurant and indoor leisure centre are located. The entertainment only occurs on a few nights, not every night as you would expect. On the beach there is a broad walk which is very popular with dog walkers joggers and people enjoying the gloriours views and journey to the town and or nature reserve. The town and supermarket is approx. 10min walk away with restaurants and cafes on the way. The town is small and quaint with a lovely fishing harbour. There is fresh fish every day directly from the fishermen. The resort is set is beautifully kept grounds with gardens, mini golf and foot paths to follow.

Fabulous beach front hotel

This was are first time staying here and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice room and lovely grounds. Staff we're friendly and breakfast was good. The only complaint was that we were above the restaurant and they would start playing music early in the morning so if you wanted a lie in then you would be disappointed. So of you can choose a room make sure it is away from the resturant.

The best thing about my stay was...

Listening to the sea while falling asleep
10/10 Amazing
