We’ve just returned from a fabulous 4 night stay at the Pestana Royal and we had a fantastic time.. from the minute we walked in the staff were welcoming and friendly.. The service and food quality in the restaurant was great, the buffet was clean, well stocked, plentiful food and lots of variety. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool area and pool bar were great, surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens. We made use of the free shuttle to Funchal, great service.. would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return to Madeira to this or one of the other Pestana hotels.
