This was our second stay in Carvoeiro but at a different property. We were a little further out of town so we had to take a taxi each way to get into town. The location of this property is lovely and the people who work there made our stay all the more pleasant. The reason for the "average" review is that it needs updating, the appliances were awful (especially the stove) and the downstairs bathroom would barely have passed for a closet. The outdoor space was extremely cramped as well. We were on top of our neighbors and 4 of us couldn't fit around the big table! Better to have a smaller, round table that could fit 4 people comfortably.

We just returned from a week long visit to this location. Our visit was just wonderful, weather this time of year is just beautiful, the accommodations were great, restaurant was equally good and the people and attitude's were very accommodating. We visited several of the nearby towns, shopped and partook of the many local restaurants which were very good. The Pestana Palm Gardens management went out of their way to make our visiit a success. Many thanks.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa overlooking the sea for 2 weeks. This is the second time we have stayed at Pestana Palm Gardens and we weren’t disappointed. The villas are clean and cleaning staff were in to clean every day except Sunday. We loved the location as we could walk along the cliffs and the view was beautiful. The two bedrooms have both bedrooms on the second floor with one bathroom upstairs and another one downstairs. They are within walking distance to downtown with an uphill walk back.

Had a superb week in this resort which is an estate of town houses in pretty surroundings rather than a hotel. The accommodation and the staff were excellent however there was no privacy on the patio dining area. The location is adjacent to a stunning coastline although the coastal path is tricky and not for the less able person. The onsite is restaurant is Michelin standard but also quite expensive. There a couple of restaurants within 5 or 10 mins walk; one of which we visited a couple of times and had great meals called 'O Stop' down at the local beach but involves a lot of steps. The main resort of Carvoeiro is a couple of kilometers (1.5 miles) away so 30 - 40 mins walk which may a bit of a challenge for some people. Carvoeiro itself is quite attractive with a multitude of restaurants and the Portuguese don't hassle you for your custom. There is a good local hop on hop off bus service but stops around 6pm so the less fit may need to consider hiring a car or taxi.

Great location, and very clean.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
If money is no object the restaurant is good quality, but there is cheaper in the town.
Facilities are all there, but if you are a gym bunny you may be disappointed by the amount of equipment at hand.
The pool and surrounding area is clean and has the added bonus of a poolside bar that also does snacks.
Our room was 13B which was an upstairs apartment with more than enough room for my wife and I. One draw back was the tiny balconies ( just enough room for 2 chairs ).
Very good value for money and exceptionally clean. 10 minute walk into town or 5 minutes the opposite way to a very beautiful beach where you can watch the sun go down in the evening ( a real must ! )
