Pestana Gardens Ocean Aparthotel, Funchal Portugal
★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]
A pleasant but rather basic and functional ocean side property which is dwarfed by its larger adjacent neighbour.
There are limited on site facilities and very little around in the way of amenities. Guests do however have full use of the more extensive offerings of the adjacent sister property.
Car hire recommended for those wishing to venture further afield and ample space for parking.
A flat sided white coloured building with a narrow glass frontage and sweeping sea views from the recessed balconies. A narrow terrace with awnings stretches along the sea facing side of the building.
Property type: Aparthotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 1991
A simple and sparse lobby has a small but welcoming reception desk on one side and rows of comfortable easy chairs on the other. A small wicker clad bar has little use.
The flat and compact crazy paved pool surround has direct views over the Atlantic Ocean. There is a good supply of sunloungers and blue ands white striped parasols available and a few swaying palms provide some natural shade.
Area Type: In a rather out of the way location, at the foot of a sloping slip road that leads down from the main coast road at the extreme SW corner of the resort. There is very little around apart from the larger Pestana Bay Ocean immediately next door, with which many facilities are shared. During quieter periods the Pestana Gardens almost operates as an annexe to its larger sister. a courtesy bus operates from the properties to the resort centre and Lido areas.
Nearest beach: 3km (Lido)
