We booked this hotel was not booked, moved (from Hotel Jardim Atlantico) because not satisfied. Hotel so far in order. Food good. Front desk, staff very friendly. Guests: english, german, dutch). Hotel only offered all-inclusive. Room size was sufficient with kitchenette. Room was very quiet (no noise from the room next door). But for a 4 star hotel 'no-go' is:a ancient tv in the room and very slow wi-fi (11 mbits max) - but was however free wireless internet access and lots of tv channels. Took some getting used to (but the hotel can't do anything): we had a ... room directly to the sea and at high waves you heard the gravel at the back of the water. But we had us after 2 days got used to. We would recommend hotel. read hotel review

    We had 2 adjoining double rooms, some with refrigerator (kitchenette for 2 persons) and satellite tv with over 40 channels (for german-speaking guests : ARD, ZDF, RTL, satellite. 1) were equipped. Also with möbl. Balcony with direct sea view (2 chairs, 1 table). the bathroom was very clean and with a bathtub (with shower curtain), toilet, bidet and sink with lots of counter space well equipped. Hot water with enough pressure to each daily and nighttime. The view of the sea was terrific (we were in 3. floor). Downside: the sea wonderful sound also in the night and could be heard through the closed sliding door. It didn't bother us.

  • Gastronomy

    The food was ok. Fish, meat, various vegetables, everything was freshly prepared. We were completely satisfied. The soup of the day was always to my taste. The dessert was much with göterspeise and sweet, but fruit and a small ice cream counter. Coffee for breakfast gave it from automats. There was the taste not always like the sort of it leads you to believe. the juice automat it was similar. Tea drinkers have better. Although we booked all inclusive, we were courteous; the drinks were served for dinner.

    Super friendly staff. We had a very active waitress, which already on the 2. day our drink orders knew. The drinks were served, selbstanholung at the bar was also possible. The rooms were always 1 a clean, new hand towels were offered without request (old towel on the floor). Tips were only slowly accepted. For example, we had on the 1st day the tip for the maid on the bed. When we got to the room (the cleaning was just completed), there was the money on the dresser. We have then the money the nice woman directly in the hand). At the waiters was the same. The chef' s see the probably not like. A better service in an all-inclusive hotel, we do not imagine. We had no complaints.

    A clean pool, plenty of free beach chairs. We always found 4 free pool chairs were next to each other. The reserving of the beach chairs was unwanted by notice in all also spoke clearly. Umbrellas costs 2 Euro per day, but we didn't need that sonenplätze and schatenplätz there were enough. The gym and the sauna (free of charge) we didn't need it. Also the offered (pay) massage we didn't use.

    The hotel is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. We had a rental car, a car park, we found always directly in front of the hotel. This is on Madeira not always possible. In the city Funchal we are with the shuttle bus, which was on time. For excursions on your own, we had the rental car. This should be at home on the internet. For a Ford Fiesta we had for one week only 67 Euro paid. Book Madeira is there more expensive. The hotel was situated directly by a rocky beach, the access is not easy, because huge waves as the promenade outside the hotels has greatly deteriorated.

The location directly on the atlantic ocean is great, we had a sea view and the sound of the sea. The 'promenade' is unfortunately in the moment destroyed, you knew but still walk along the water. Kitchen-room-staff-bar everything was great. However we have the average age significantly upward stituents, Madeira is mainly of old wandervögeln visited. read hotel review

The hotel is very good well maintained and in a great location. Unfortunately, the beach promenade by storm heavily damaged and direction Funchal not more manageable. But you can once per hour by bus-shuttle into town drive or with the elevator in front of the hotel and 20 minutes to the large shopping center to come. We have a taxi driver for 2 days. He gave us the whole island and not only the move rooms! The service was great and for 6 people cheaper than with the tour operator. The food was always in buffet and very good. What ... we missed, was landtypical fresh fruit. If you are looking for peace and quiet, the this hotel is the right place. So we would definitely go again. read hotel review

Nice hotel directly at the beach with beautiful ocean view. The direct beach access was unfortunately closed. Because of storm damage was the beach promenade badly damaged. We did not like, that the restaurant an open room was. It was therefore very loud and in the evening you had the entertainment in the lobby including, whether you wanted or not.

    Who directly at the beach bay, gets this 100% ig. Closer is not at all. By the free shuttle service, the all 45 minutes from the hotel leaves, you Funchal quickly reached. On foot you can be in the city centre about minutes reach. The public bus service is also good and cheap. For excursions in more distant cities are a rental car recommendable. It is very exciting to madeira streets itself and the villages to explore.

The food was when we were there it was always hot and tasty (after seasoning it could be better). The hotel was inside and out freshly newly painted. Hotel bus to Funchal 12 times per day!

    The beach is right next to hotel-however very stony. But that is not a problem, since mats are offered for the beach. Nearby are also shops or one can the free shuttle bus in front of the hotel all the 45 minutes hotel guests into town Funchal brings benefit. From there you can many excursions undertake. At the front desk of the hotel also excursions were offered.

Good mittelklassenhotel; entire hotel and facilities not luxurious, but nicely done and in good condition; directly on the pebble beach ( praia formosa) location, about kilometers away from the city center funchals; room clean; with great view of the sea; with the food and the service we were always happy; hotel suitable for everyone; thereby mixed clientele from young to old; too many one hears french, spanish or portuguese; seltender German or English; highlight: from the room you can hear the waves sound and the pebbles crackle! read hotel review

    The rooms were well equipped, large and clean; with ( silent) fan (that was good); a small kitchenette with a fridge is integrated, a large closet with a large mirror next to the bed, coffee table with chairs, a small tv, a small balcony with chairs and table with direct view over the vast sea; safe in the closet; the bathroom also typical of a hotel and colorful; on the whole room enough electrical outlets available. It was cleaned daily, there were also on demand always fresh towels -everything good!

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The staff were always friendly and efficient, whether at the clearing and wipe or when resetting the tables, so that one always a table (mostly in the outdoor area) found; no queues at the buffet; always a pleasant atmosphere, not noisy or too warm in the eating area. Especially great is the view of the see and evenings on the sunset during the meal! Breakfast selection: various rolls ( toaster at the nebentisch), bread, croissants, different marmelade, few types of cold cuts, muesli, great English breakfast, vending machines for water, fruit juices, coffee ( in many variations ), sometimes even sparkling wine. Lunch and especially evenings a relatively varied food; soup, salad buffet, daily fish and meat, as well as some warm side dishes in the daily change; diet food ( delicious fish usually without sauce and vegetables), dessert ( usually a bit of everything: cakes, pudding, ice, fruit in the daily/ half-hourly change). The offered drinks left hardly anything to be desired, since the bar almost the whole day was open and vending machines also always very quickly refilled, well maintained and clean! Really top! Red and white wine in decanters next to the buffet the choice, both probably no expensive wines, but nevertheless delicious.

    The front desk was approachable, even if not always in German, and really helpful; to criticize we had nothing  The hotel bus-plan is at the front desk from, also depends on this in the elevator ( very convenient!) The service staff in the area of food and at the bar are really fast and always friendly; for a long time wait must not. Room service (daily cleaning and towel-exchange) always reasonable.

  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    The fitness room is quite small, but everything is in good and above all usable condition: the treadmill, the two bikes and the stairmaster fulfilled its purpose, as well as is a gymnastikmatte available. Rather the men used the klimmzugstange, a dipstange, as well as a rückenstrecker with a large mirror opposite. Also a crunshbank is available. Particularly beautiful is also, that man/woman during the training directly on the pool / the sea looks. Also a wellness area with a sauna, turkish and massage ( only on appointment) there is; this area is small, but particularly the sauna is perfect for a small relaxation break. Entertainment in the hotel: daily evening events ( live music, parrot show, showtanz ): matter of taste, but not bad. Animation is not offered. The pool area is really great arranged and clean; actually always enough free chairs and sunscreens available; there are a nice whirlpool and some showers available; the water temperature in the pool is pleasant, there is always a pool-staff in sight, the way blank drinks clearing. All great so!

    From the beautifully laid out pool over 5-6 stairs (I have not counted ;-) in seconds at the beach: although it is only a pebble beach is (as on Madeira usual) with large to small rocks; some beach mats are from the hotel provided, as there are no chairs returns. The way into the water is without bathing shoe or flip-flops a bit of a hassle/uncomfortable and at high waves also not completely safe. Small tip: better you can bathe a few steps further to the right (in the best way on the road use). The way ( from the hotel at the water front along to the right) a good built away directly after camara de lobos ( about 30 minutes away on foot): this is a pretty small fishing village! A worth a visit in any case! From the hotel to the left closes a small elevated on, up to a good built tunnel, through the rocks leads: this is somewhat lit and about half one has a small viewpoint, where you on the water look-this tunnel is thus rather impressive than scary. Behind the tunnel is right sea water swimming pool and a restaurant -both nice and not expensive ( admission price sea water swimming pool 1.75 Euro). The other path leads to a great laid out promenade almost to into town to Funchal. One has always great flowers on the way to be seen and fantastic view of the sea! The city Funchal is free hotel bus-shuttle bus in 15 to 20 minutes really easy to reach. You can but also easy on the promenade go along, until after 40 to 60 minutes reached the city.

If you want a all-inclusive-carefree-package with tiny downsides ( yes, okay, the sun screen one must pay, so what!) would like to with very friendly staff, always well stocked and tasty buffet, daily pristine cleaned rooms and versatile offered for excursions in the area, is quite at the right address. I am alone and I was certainly not the target audience of the hotel. But my expectations it has more than sufficed and I can thoroughly and warmly recommend. The staff ( from the management to the maids) are themselves fairly trouble, and the result of this effort came with ... me prima to! You will find everywhere something to complain about, if you only afterwards searches. But I had no time afterwards to search, I was on vacation, and was not least thanks to the pestana bay hotels a wonderful. read hotel review

It is a lovely hotel with a einervery well maintained complex, the view of the Atlantic is great, there were more people age 60 + and very a lot of French people, the very dominant were for the food and evenings, had the feeling as if whole bathroom were there, the German guests were in the minority, but the staff were very friendly, particularly the barkeeper.

We had a week booked all inclusive. There were mostly guests the generation 60 + present. Nevertheless we have really good felt. The staff are very accommodating. The bar staff is sharpened. You the hotel can good as a starting point to the discovery the island take. The hotel offers a free bus service to Funchal. Drive but also Buses. The food is not outstanding but good edible. Who without children travels and no value animation and so on sets, is in this hotel really good repealed. read hotel review

Calculator, which is outmoded, as well as the ambience (cheapest plastic chairs at all balconies), no worth 4 stars! -the flowerage the island, the weather, the Spayiergaenge on the bay and along the Levadas entschaedigen Recommendation only conditionally. read hotel review
