An old hotel but nicely located on the beach . Rooms are a good size but now rather dated. With very few exceptions the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food selection was quite limited but was well prepared and of good quality. Breakfast was very good with a great selection of breads. On the minus side: Was...

When we looked at the reviews on Tripadviser which were excellent , we thought ok rooms look a little tired. But its about location, food and service etc . Well we went on 15/05/17 and the food is boring, very little choice. Even dinner you only had choice of one meat dish and a fish dish. Then they kept running...

This was our first vist to Madeira and our first all inclusive hotel. Overall this hotel needs a major update and the menu needs more variety. However, do make sure that you book the a la carte Italian restaurant downstairs for one night for a change - there is no extra cost. We were allocated a room on the 2nd...

We returned 1 week ago from a very enjoyable stay at the Pestana Ocean Bay. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, with large balcony and direct ocean views. There is lots of storage space and plenty of hangers (often in short supply in hotels for some reason!). There is also plenty of lighting and the bulbs all worked...

The walk along the sea front is dangerous. There is a wooden pathway, slats missing and broken, no handrails, to a sleazy bar. This was described as 500 metres to shops, restaurants and bars. No. The hotel is 3 star at best, very dated. Won't be going there again. Jet2 transferred us to a decent hotel which saved our holiday.
