Excellent choice for Funchal!
I had to stay one night in Funchal as I was meeting my ship from the Royal Canadian Navy. I needed a hotel close to the dock, and hopefully close to the city centre. the Pestana Carlton was clean, with several good restaurants, fantastic pools and excellent proximity to the city centre and waterfront. Staff were helpful and my room was cleaned and available early. a couple of minor points, wifi access was a little spotty, and like elsewhere in Madeira the food wait staff were a little too standoffish. Overall i would return in a heart beat. Also, because I booked thru (my first time using it) I got a better (sea view) room at a lower price than my colleague, who booked thru the navy!

Five stars are two too many
Despite a location with good views of the sea and of the Reid’s hotel standing on its headland, this hotel doesn’t have the ambience you’d expect of a so-called five star establishment. On arrival in the evening you’re greeted by the sound of the DJ playing in the bar one floor down from reception. Even if you remember the 60s and 70s the choice of music may not appeal. The rooms are reasonably comfortable if a bit dated. The breakfast is adequate but not a huge amount of choices and long queues for some stations. It’s also quite a long walk (about half an hour) from Funchal town centre: downhill on the way in, but a long uphill drag on the way back. The biggest downside though is provided by the neighbours. A “mountain view” room comes complete with free all night entertainment provided by the “Dubai” nightclub across the road. At weekends this went on until 5.30 am. Not directly the hotel’s fault, of course, but you’d think they’d try to do something to restrain the disturbance in what is basically a residential neighbourhood. If we’d been staying longer we’d have asked to change rooms.

New Year
We arrived in the evening of 30th and enquiring about news years eve we were told that the gala dinner was sold out as was seeing the fireworks on the 18th floor. For a 5 star hotel to not be able to offer food, we thought was poor. It was only after making a fuss that we were able to have a limited room service.

Great value for money hotel
Great hotel, excellent value for money. I would avoid the evening dinner buffet, it was quite expensive for what was on offer but the breakfast was excellent so on balance very good food-wise. Superb selection of pools and entertainment on offer, would highly recommend this hotel, especially its vicinity to local town.
