    Location 7.75 /10

    The Pestana Bay is located in one of Madeira's prettiest bays, Praia Formosa bay. It is only 3 mi from the centre of Funchal and 17 mi from the airport. Allow around 15 minutes to get to the town centre and 30 minutes to reach the airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Pestana Bay has 206 rooms (184 studios, 8 junior suites and 14 suites) on seven floors. All the rooms have a kitchenette, a balcony overlooking the Praia Formosa and a direct view of the ocean. Let yourself be gently roused in the morning by the soft rolling of the waves... The rooms are very comfortable, decorated simply in the colours of the sea to ensure relaxation and a well deserved rest. They all have twin beds and a cable TV with Portuguese, English, German, Italian, French and Spanish channels. The telephones have a direct international line. Each room also has a safe, which can be used in return for a fee. The bathrooms have a bath equipped with a showerhead and an emergency alarm, in case of an accident. A hair-dryer and hospitality products are also available. Bath towels are changed on request, when you leave them on the floor: at least this is one way to protect the environment...

    Overview 7.30 /10

    Having opened in 1995, the Pestana Bay was renovated in 2004. This explains the quality of the reception facilities: a delightful reception and comfortable wicker armchairs are a welcome sight for the tired traveller. The peace and quiet are total, and just a few steps off to your right an immense view of the ocean can be seen through the big bay windows. Modern paintings decorate this space, which has a yellow tiled floor. Outside, a round swimming pool is waiting for you. A small stony island dotted with flowers looks over the water, equipped with a little wooden bridge. All you need to do is get settled into one of the deckchairs set around the swimming pool (towels are provided on site). Lose yourself in the serenity of the place and the lulling of the waves. Surrounded on one side by palm trees, you can paddle in the warm water and look out over the Atlantic Ocean. This area is spacious enough to be used by many guests. Down below the hotel there is a pebbly beach. You are advised to wear paddling shoes when you swim, to avoid hurting your feet. A small pool, to one side of the swimming pool, allows children to splash about safely. There is also an outdoor play area on a lawn, with a small slide and a playhouse. The TV room has a carpet decorated with estrelicias, the flower which is the symbol of Madeira. You can check the news of different European countries here.

    Food and drink 7.75 /10

    Here, the cuisine has pride of place. Breakfast and dinner are served at the Arlequim Restaurant (a non-smoking area), the main restaurant of the hotel. It is very bright thanks to its big bay windows and ceiling open to the sky. Make the most of the terrace, in a setting that opens out to the sea and the garden, to start working on your tan The breakfast is generous, with a number of breads and pastries to choose from as well as other products for an "international-style" breakfast. Dinner is also served buffet style: choose from local or Italian food, or a variety of seafoods. Expect to pay around £23. As far as lunch is concerned, it can be bought from the snack-bar just next to the swimming pool. They prepare light "a la carte" meals: salads, sandwiches, omelettes, pizzas, etc. The prices are around £10.50. Sat on green wrought-iron chairs, here again you are looking out over the ocean. The Pestana Bay also has an indoor bar, just next to the restaurant room. Sit at the bar and give in to the barman's tempting cocktails.

    To know

    The hotel has a very fine view of the sea and the imposing Cabo Girão, the second highest cliff of the world. Its direct access to the sea, via the Praia Formosa, is not a common feature among the hotels of Madeira, and is a real plus point of the hotel. You can also take in the splendid panoramic view of the hillsides of the typical town of Câmara de Lobos, which rises up from the sea to form one of the famous images of Madeira. The promenade set around the hotel allows you to enjoy a relaxing evening stroll and admire the beauty of the sun setting behind the majestic Cabo Girão.Although it is some way from the centre of Funchal, the hotel can organize private transport to get you there. You should also visit Câmara de Lobos, a fishing village near the hotel where you can dine in fine fish restaurants and enjoy the bars, which open early and close late.

      A hotel with an impressive view of the ocean, the Orca Praia is a place to be favoured for its nice environment and very attractive prices. One of the rare hotels in Madeira with a beach. Peppered with black sand, it is less attractive than the fine sand beaches. With an architecture shaped like a staircase, the hotel seems to go down straight towards the sea.

      Located in the hotel area of Funchal, the Monumental Lido is quite noticeable thanks to its red and white façade. Currently under expansion, it does not yet offer numerous facilities. The establishment is mainly recommended for people who like to go on walks. Surrounded by lots of buildings, it is not really affected by outside noise.

      Located in the Funchal hotel zone, the Alto Lido consists of one central building and a huge, imposing and unattractive tower running alongside the road. The complex does nevertheless have a good number of facilities. Built in the '80's, the second part was constructed as an addition to the first in order to increase the number of rooms. The majority of the guests are European.

      The Pestana Promenade is the latest acquisition of the hotel group that bears the same name, and is also one of its finest gems. This is a small and incredibly charming establishment, but you wouldn't expect it from the outside. At first sight, its architectural qualities seem a bit dubious. However, it does offer some true advantages, such as the sea view from all the accommodation units, regardless of their category. This is a very friendly establishment, where you'll immediately feel comfortable and will have no difficulty in getting into holiday mode...

Time, here, passes by somewhat hurriedly... The most recent work took place in 2006 and involved the swimming pool and the spa. The bedrooms, for their part, are also gradually being renovated.
