Pestana carlton madiera
I stayed here for 4 nights mid June to celebrate my birthday with my husband. We had never been to Madiera and being in our early 30s I thought we would be bored. We were very wrong.
I did alot of research of where to stay and this hotel ticked all the boxes. Its sea front and walkable to the centre in just 15 mins. Only one steep hill on the way back to contend with! For dinners there are plenty of restaurants to choose from within minutes of leaving the lobby. Thoroughly recommend Beef and Wine and the steakhouse opposite. From our hotel there is also several supermarkets open till 10ish and rental cars.
The hotel - wonderful! Our budget didnt stretch to a sea view so we had the view of the mountains. Its was beautiful having the curtains open at an evening and watching the twinkly lights. Annoyingly there is a disco and a pub opposite which did kick out some noise in the early hours and kept us awake a few nights.
The rooms have safes, hairdryers, kettles, dressing gowns and slippers, everything you could need.
The breakfast is wonderful and all the staff involved are incredibly polite and professional. We sat out on the breakfast terrace each morning sipping our fizz overlooking the sea and pool.
The pool was well kept with loads of sunbeds, the indoor pool down by the sea level was a tranquil oasis , overlooking the sea and private cabanas to snooze in. The jacuzzi was big enough for at least 30! Not sure many people knew about it down there.
We played mini golf, which had definitely seen better days but it was free!
We had dinner in the hotel buffet which was delicious, and also tried the tarverna grill also delicious.
I had a massage in the magic Spa with a lady called G something.... It was incredible! Loved it, lots of new techniques and she was so pleasant to talk to.
Overall i think this hotel is wonderful. Its so pretty, the views outstanding, its kept so clean and the staff are ever so nice. If we come back to Madiera I would be staying here again.
