We spent my 60th birthday at the Pestana and had a really lovely time. The manager delivered a bottle of bubbly to our room when she discovered it was my birthday which was a lovely touch.

By chance (As it wasn’t advertised) we joined the Wednesday evening free wine get together and met some other guests and the management which was very pleasant. Just a 5 minute walk from the beach and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The hotel lacks a little investment and could move to refillable soap/shampoo away from single use bottles, but the staff were trying really hard and we loved it. Read less

Ideally we would have given this hotel 2 stars, as generally we were very disappointed in it. But there were a few good points. Firstly, the staff were really helpful and pleasant. If we needed anything extra it was brought to our room immediately. Also, the wifi was v good in all areas, never a problem. There were free delicious custard tarts in the foyer every day. The location is good, with shops and restaurants close by. We had booked for a week and specifically requested a room with a bathtub. When we arrived very tired we found we were given one with only a shower although it did have a pool view (which was obstructed by a palm tree). When we looked at the room it was tiny, 18” hanging room for 2 people for a week was a joke. We accepted and paid for an upgrade to a larger room in an annexe, with bath. To get here we had to go up dirty stairs, (no lift) with 3 sticky, dirty doors to go through. The room was much nicer, but no view, (car park one way and wall the other). However parts were quite tatty, a dirty, stained old sofa, and a broken stained rug, to name a couple of issues. The room was also very dark even with the extra light that we had to ask for, and the air con was so loud we couldn’t use it at night. When I spoke to the manager the next day she was very helpful and refunded the extra we had been charged. The pool area is quite nice, although the first two days when the weather was hot the pool was like a hot bath. The pool itself didn't seem very clean. I swim with my head in the water and I always saw a lot of grey fluff at the bottom of the pool. There were plenty of towels and good beds and seats. We didn’t have breakfast as it was 16.95 plus tax plus service, which is a huge amount for the small breakfasts we eat, a bowl of cornflakes and some toast. We had 2 shared breakfasts out at Maxine’s nearby, good food, but also pricey. After that we made our own. There is an empty fridge in the room, v useful. The room was, as one would expect, serviced every day, but because we were in an annexe ours was not usually done until about 3 pm, which was difficult for us as we usually take a rest after lunch at this time. I have never had our room serviced so late in any hotel. All in all, I can say that this is not our usual standard of hotel, but in all honesty I think the fault does not lie with the staff, but with Pestana, who really need to renovate the whole building.
