We had a wonderful stay in December 2019 at this hotel. I think it was made special by Delfina De Roque who made our stay so welcoming. Every time we were there for our meals, Delfina De Roque used to serve us happily and replied to all our request with 'enjoy'. For vegetarians the choices are not so great but she tried her best.

Location -About 20 mins by car from airport (we privately booked a meet and greet taxi) -15 mins away from centre using bus. Bus stop is literally right outside. -Hotel also have their complimentary private bus which takes you to and from the cetre but only operates hourly and sometimes longer. -10 mins walk from a mall. -Amazing view and sunset. Has private elevator as an access to and from the beach Service - the staff were welcoming and helpful. -they gave us advice on how to get around the city -they helped us booked our private tour (van) that catered our very short break- just ask the reception area as they are more than happy to help -polite team; great in communicating english language. Facilities -we booked a double bed room located on right side of hotel it has balcony and can view the sea but not entirely sea-facing view. This was OK as we spent most of our time outside. -Room was decent size for couples. -cleaned daily and met our basic needs Food -there were main meals and bar menu selection. - this was all inclusive. First time we tried this. 1)breakfast was OK. Lots of selection of hot and cold choices but always the same everyday. Eat all you can option. So can't complain. 2)Lunch was not great. If we had the option, then we would have eaten out. Mostly acceptable selection but not many. Salads, hot meal etc. Wish they can improve the taste as most dishes were either too salty or bland. 3) Dinner -more promising than the lunch menu. We actually looked forward to this time of the day. They have different theme each night, though it was a hit and miss. It was advertised when we booked in that they we can choose a themed dinner night as part of the hotel's offer to guest. But when we asked about this, turns out that you need to stay for more than 5 days or something to qualify for this. Clearly this was one of those "read the small" print moment- so we were disappointed we did not get this as it was advertised on website as if it was part of our stay 4) Bar snacks -the usual burgers,chips, salads, sandwiches and small bites. -we enjoyed this menu the most to be honest. Burgers can be customized to however you want. -we are not big drinkers but they have decent selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Other Facilities/Ambiance: -sauna- small and always occupied -pool was always cold so we only took a dip once only -quiet and scenic part of Funchal. -targets families and much more mature/older guests -they had different "entertainment" every night, but again more focused for matured/older guests in summary, I cant complain. For its location, scenery, access to and from places, OK facilities, OK all inclusive menu, fairly reasonably priced. Will I stay here again? maybe. Do I recommend this for short breaks, i.3. 3 full days in Madeira, YES.

we booked this hotel as a family holiday to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, with 2 deluxe 2 & requested the rooms to be as close as possible but on arrival we found the rooms were on different sides on the floor, at least 50 to 75m apart, the adults room was lovely, but the children's room was very small & due to the distance apart we went back to reception to request a change but was told no, all we could do was downgrade the adults room to a smaller room nearer the children's room. as we did not want the children being so far away the adults had to split up so we had one adult & one child per room, not what we wanted for a special anniversary. Also due to the second room being so small, we could not even keep the suitcases in that room & had to store them in the larger room Next when we went for our evening meal at approx 19:30 we were told our sitting was at 18:00 !! a surprise for us, we had not been informed about this detail & there is no way we would want to eat so early. The big issue is the lack of general dining space, in a 4* hotel having to have timed sittings is not a good holiday experience. the other cuisines are very good, but having to book so far ahead is again not a good experience, who wants to have to plans next weeks eating when on holiday? the final gripe was the all inclusive & the queues around this, especially the pool area, & only be able to get a small beer was annoying. we really liked Madeira & would return, just not to this hotel.

Responded 13 Jun 2020
Dear IV1998, First of all, we would like to thank you for your choice and stay at the Pestana Royal Hotel, and for taking the time to share your experience at such delicate phase in terms of public health, that forced us all to take a break. Above all, we hope you are well and in good health as well as all your family members. In relation to the above, let us clarify for future travelers that the hotel has five room categories: Classic, Deluxe Balcony, Deluxe Sea View, Deluxe Superior and Suite, which meet the different criteria and needs desired by our esteemed customers. In your particular case, we regret that although on the same floor you were not completely satisfied with the accommodation provided and for future reservations, we emphasize that depending on the categories, there are not necessarily rooms within the same, side by side. It is also unfortunate that during the process of choosing and consequently booking our hotel, the categories chosen were not the most suitable according to your expectations and needs. We always advise that when traveling with children, that you contact with our reception available 24/7 in order to prepare everything in advance and inform the respective ages so that we can take that into account. In relation to the dinner schedule during our high season, two dinner sittings are created in order to allow a fast and efficient hotel operation that also allows us to properly replace and clean between services. These times are assigned on arrival and are flexible, having you the opportunity to replace it for the time that better suits you. In the same way, the operation of our themed restaurants is justified, since they are not available daily, therefore, they follow a reservation system in order to provide the best possible gastronomic experience. We look forward to your return to the Pestana Royal Hotel and if so, please let us know so that we can take the greatest care and attention for you. Our biggest "Obrigado!” – Thank You, wishing you, your family and loved ones health and safety. Be Safe Be Positive Be Inspired Best regards, João Pedro Marques Unit Manager

The staff could not have been more welcoming. We were the last to arrive before quarantine kicked in and the place started to empty. The staff carried on as best they could at a time when they were obviously worried. This carried on until we were around the last 30 in the hotel. Obviously things had to scale back and communal facilities had to be closed. I will return once the pandemic is over and hope to see them all again.

Lots of very good things about the hotel. Self service for beer/wine. Plenty of choice when it came to breakfast/dinner. We had lunch by the pool and thoroughly enjoyed the freshly made baguettes. There was also help yourself to things like cod cakes/patties/chips/salad/crisps and cakes so we snacked from 1 until 4pm. Never an issue getting a seat for the evening buffet. We didn't try the speciality restaurants because the buffet suited us as we were generally full so only wanted small portions. Our room was on the 9th floor which was a fair way from the pool but thankfully there's lifts. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely garden terrace to watch the sun go down. It's a shame the poolside bar didn't stay open until after the sunset. I only saw the pool bar being used once all week as the water was a bit on the cold side for sitting in. There were a few people in the pool but they used it for swimming rather than socialising. A very good overall experience and will return next year hopefully for 2 weeks.
