I’m not accustomed to 5 star hotels and many reviews have indicated that the Pestana Carlton is not a 5 star hotel. Here’s my impression: clean rooms, gorgeous pool and view, delicious full breakfast, extraordinary staff, terrific location. You could spend a week in Madeira...More

Stayed at the apartments a few years ago on an exchange from the Miramar where we have our own timeshare. Not been recently. Very pleased with everything. Lovely setting, restaurant good and a great holiday. Cannot fault Pestana.
