Read more about this Hotel

Spectacularly situated on one of Madeira's only beachfront sites, Praia Formosa, the Pestana Bay All Inclusive is one of Pestana Hotels & Resorts four star properties. Madeira’s mild climate make it an ideal choice at any time of the year. The attractively designed and decorated 214 room hotel offers only sea view rooms, all with balconies. Located just outside Funchal with an unparalleled view of the highest promontory in Europe - Cabo Girao - the Pestana Bay Hotel is the ideal venue for those who are looking for something just a bit different. Whether it's a beach barbecue or a leisurely day at the pool, guests will find this an ideal location.

Officially the property is a 4 star but in line with its location, facilities, quality of service and value for money we feel it's worthy of a 5 star rating.
