We have just returned from a 2 week stay in a premium villa with sea view at the Pestana Palm Gardens, there were 5 of us in our party, and the word I use to describe the Pestana Palm Gardens is perfection. From the moment we arrived to our departure every staff member we meet was friendly, professional, polite. They dealt with all our needs efficiently. The villa was fantastic, set over 5 floors so plenty of space for our family, the kitchen is well equipped; large fridge freezer, washing machine, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, microwave....basically anything you needed. There is plenty of space in the dining area for 6 people to eat, the sofa bed was a good size and comfy, there is an outside eating area too with sun loungers if you want a bit of piece from the pool area. The accomadation has 2 showers and 2 toilets, 1 bath. Both the bedrooms are a good size, then the final floor, the roof terrace...wow what a sea view and peaceful place, again with sun loungers and clothes airers, so your washing dries in next to no time, also again an eating area for 6. The maids cleaned every day apart from Sunday's, changed the towels and the linen regular. The air conditioning in the villa was good and easy to control, the wifi was also good, the villa had 2 TVs, not that we used them.
The pool area is lovely plenty of space and we always managed to get a sun longer and believe me we are not early risers!
We didn't have breakfast in the restaurant but we had a few lunches and evening meals, all the food was first class and served by professional friendly staff.
The location of the accomadation is good, you are on a gorgeous beach in 10 minutes walking down a not too steep road then steps down to the cove, we did the cave boat trip from this beach which we felt was great value for money 20 euros per person for an hour. The town of Carvoeiro is a 20 minute walk down hill which has a pavement and is quite a gentle walk some flat bits some slightly steeper bits but we managed it with the kids aged 8, 11 and 16 without too much moaning! Or if you fancy a slightly longer but more scenic walk then use the boardwalk which is lovely especially at sunset.
The Pestana Palm Gardens also has free use of tennis courts, table tennis and a gym which we used throughout our stay.
I would like to thank all the staff at the Pestana Palm Gardens for making our holiday perfect, thank you.
