Pestana Village

TripAdvisor Review
Portugal, Europe
Funchal

Classic Madeiran style meets four star amenities at the Pestana Village Aparthotel. The beautiful architecture evokes the style of traditional Madeira, while the facilities are all about giving you the best modern hotel experience. Relaxation is top of the agenda when you stay at the Pestana Village Aparthotel. Take a stroll around when you arrive and you'll see what we mean. Inside its cosy and comfortable, while outside, the superb tropical gardens help reinforce that feeling of this being a haven of relaxation and quiet contentment.

Relax at the Pestana Village Aparthotel in a glorious sub-tropical garden setting

With its wrought iron work and ceramic tiles, the Pestana Village Aparthotel has that wonderfully traditional feel. And staying here, amid all this lush vegetation, you really do feel like you're at one with the natural beauty of your surroundings.

With 5000m2 of tropical gardens to explore, you'll be able to spend many happy hours luxuriating in the dappled shade. Then, how about a dip in the pool? The outdoor pool at the Pestana Village Aparthotel really is a beauty. And you can follow up a dip with a drink at the poolside bar.

The low-rise aparthotel fits in wonderfully with its surroundings. Each of the spacious studio flats are kitted out in a traditional style décor. Again, the emphasis is on a homely, traditional style that's cosy and welcoming.

One of the other benefits of staying at the Pestana Village Aparthotel is that you benefit from the shared facilities of sister hotel, the Pestana Miramar. That means even more restaurants to choose from, even more fitness and leisure facilities and more ways to relax.

Your accommodation at Pestana Village

Each flat comes with its own well-equipped kitchenette. And guests' rooms feature cable TV, telephone, security safe, hair dryer, private bath, and most wonderfully of all, your very own private balcony and terrace. Some face the pool, others look out towards Funchal; both views are wonderful. From your comfortable lounge chair you can sit back relax and toast your great choice of holiday hotel.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

TripAdvisor Review

Wonderful 10 day stay at Postana Village!

Review by Judy S Boston, Massachusetts

We had 10 amazing days at this lovely resort located within walking distance (20 minutes) to Funchal center as well as the other hotels linked with it for dinner reservations. The staff was super friendly helpful and professional. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide variety of choices, fresh fruits, eggs , cheeses and meats… too much to mention...

We opted to eat our dinners at the 5 optional restaurants rather than the nightly buffet. These restaurants included Moroccan , Italian, Mediterranean and Madeiran cuisine and our meals were outstanding. Parking was available on site for a fee. The rooms were super clean and very very comfortable. There was nightly entertainment although the quality was just average. There are outstanding musical venues within walking distance. All in all we had an amazing stay and would definitely return again.

Good & Bad Points

Review by Pauly04113 Croydon, United Kingdom

Good points:

Excellent location for 25min walk into Funchal centre

Good facilities: 2 pools, gym, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, massages available, bars and restaurants. Staff relatively efficient, although not as well trained as some hotels I've visited. Nice gardens and everything worked.

Less good points: Pestana Village accomodation has no air conditioning, just inadequte ceiling fans...

We were lucky enough to negotiate for a cool air blower for the bedroom, but I shudder to think how hot it must get at night in July/August. There is no warning about lack of AC when booking

The swimming pools are cool/cold and as a result few adults go into them. Despite the thousands of hours of sunshine why is it so difficult to rig up a few solar panels to partially heat them?

Prices for food and drink are 30-40% more than neighbouring cafes/restaurants, so we ate in the PV for one lunch in a week - why not offer guests a 10-15% off card for eating in the complex?

Its a hilly site, especially from road to reception and might not suit those with mobility issues. I hope PV make elderly guests aware of this

Overall its average to good, but could be improved

Lots of positives but needs a revamp in many areas inside

Review by davestat Reading, United Kingdom

Fantastic Location (opposite Reid’s). Stunning Gardens (way better than the ones you pay to see), superb external appearance and the best staff possible. It is linked to the Pestana Miramar and it is also a Pestana Time Share complex...

Where is falls down badly is inside as it simply hasn’t kept up with changing requirements and a younger set of visitors. Despite listing a lot of bars and restaurants, most of these are closed, very small or only open for a few nights a week. In the evening, there is only one bar and which is attached to something called the Winter Garden. It rained most evenings when we were there, and it’s a boring place to spend an evening. I’m retired and I reckon that in another 20 years , I will still find it boring. You can see areas that have had investment but the bedrooms and bathrooms need gutting. There is no Air Conditioning (something I simply assumed all 4 star hotels have nowadays.). The bathrooms were minute but just outside them is a small kitchenette (two rings (but only one pan) and a sink). Bigger more modern bathroom please.

Great Location

Review by sligoinian Sligo, Ireland

We stayed her for 9 nights and have no complaints Location is good with bus stops very near to hotel including one for airport bus Breakfast is good and adequate .All the staff are friendly in all parts of the hotel. The night time entertainment is ok understandably they have to cater for various age groups and nationalities Rooms are clean and comfortable and the pool is excellent and it doesnt seem to get very busy So overall i would recommend staying at Pestana Village
