This place is made up of twin properties, the Pestana Miramar Garden & Ocean Resort, and the Pestana Village Garden Hotel. The former’s classic style is inspired by a Twenties manor house, while the other looks like a traditional, pastel-painted village.
Location-wise, the complex is a few minutes’ walk to the nearest bars and cafés, and a 10-minute mosey down to the beach, which is accessed via the Pestana Carlton Madeira Hotel.
Both properties have an outdoor pool of their own, and you’re free to flit between the two. The pool at the Pestana Village Hotel is a big lagoon-like one, accessorised with rocky formations and a swim-up bar.
You’ll find a heated indoor pool and a hot tub at the Pestana Miramar Garden & Ocean Resort.
FOOD & DRINK
There are five places to dine in, including a buffet place with a garden-view terrace. A la carte options tick off a Madeiran eatery, and a restaurant that has dining areas styled like the rooms of an old mansion.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
You can pass some time away playing games of giant chess or billiards, while the littlest guests have fun in the playground.
Night-time entertainment is staged by the Pestana Village Hotel’s pool bar in the summer and in Winter Garden in winter. If you’d rather have a quieter night winding down with a drink, there’s a cocktail bar for each hotel.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
The Pestana Village Hotel houses the complex’s spa*. Here, treatments range from rejuvenating facials to body scrubs using passion fruit, honey and almond oil. There’s a fully-equipped gym, as well.
