Very dark and dated carpet and decor still in the sixties. No toilet roll holder in room. Opened the door to balcony and the handle dropped off. Pool toilet hanging of the wall with no lock on door. Food and restaurant was very nice, but even that was spoiled by chipped cups and cracked plates. The hotel and staff seem to be in a time warp thinking the place is five star when it’s two.

We stayed at the Pestana Casino for 12 nights over the New Year period. The Hotel is amazing, the pool area, grounds, restaurants are quality and deserve 5 stars. OK the Hotel corridors are a little dark and the carpet tired but I’m not there to judge decor just to have a fabulous holiday. The Hotel staff are all very friendly and courteous, check in smooth enough. This Hotel is in an excellent location, very close to an abundance of restaurants, pubs etc. It is about a 10 minute walk into Funchal centre one way and the other to the hotel/lido area again with restaurants along the route. We watched the New Year fireworks from our balcony, a truly awesome experience, would I return, YES.

On a positive note the views from the hotel are stunning. Your are very close to the main town but far enough to avoid the noise. The pool and outside bar are stunning and the gardens are well maintained. The down side is the hotel is in need of some love and attention. They are stuck in the 1970’s although thus may appeal to some. You overlook the port and often woken by public announcements from which ever cruise liner has docked that day. Breakfast has a good selection but it would be nice for some change of selection. There protocols for covid were excellent.

My trip to Maderia was as a musician blessed to have been booked to be entertainment for the guests on NYE, As we counted down to a new year we were double blessed to witness the best Fireworks display I have ever seen WOW an incredible experience. We also had the pleasure of performing in the casino again something you must experience Excellent customer service from the staff. All those behind the scene Housekeeping, Kitchen, Pool. The staff are trained well and always have a smile for you Beautiful hotel. Incredible breakfast spread. Excellent pool side amenities with an infinity pool, The gym is well equipped as is the spa area. A suggestion that a meme we of staff patrol the sauna area and put up polite notices as a couple entered the sauna stark naked … not appropriate especially as families with small children are using the spa. Also it’s not hygienic and it’s not that kind of party My room was on the 5th floor Room 502, big and spacious. The hotel could do with an upgrade in the rooms but it was clean and comfortable with balcony overlooking stunning views, two loungers with a table to relax and take in the views. The breakfast spread has everything you need for all nationalities. So much choice .. pastries. Meats, Eggs (anyway you want) fruits, breads, cheeses, porridge. The list is endless you will find it hard not to enjoy. My only criticism is the coffee machines are always busy maybe reconsider other alternatives as the queue was always busy. Lunch around the pool area again is another experience. Plenty of choices and the portions are extremely generous. Freshly prepared and enjoyable. The Staff are hardworking, polite and always accommodating The streets comes alive early evening and the lights and Christmas decorations are incredible. A small 5 minute walk into town takes you to the harbour where there is plenty to see and do including the museum of Ronaldinho You MUST take the cable car and return via Toboggan ride which was such fun. You have the option to take a taxi back into town or walk (I walked downhill still feeling it now) steep walk down but you see so much on foot. I am excited to be returning again this year and can’t wait

It's a reasonably priced five star hotel in a great location with wonderful views. Build in the 1970's it's a design icon. We love it, the staff are very efficient and friendly, if you don't need them, you won't be bothered by them.
