Outdated rooms with uncomfortable beds and a small unpleasing bathroom. Ice cold water in the pool, terrible gym (if you can even call it that). Was unable to make a reservation in the restaurant the same day.

8/10 Very good

We had a nice stay, it’s a comfortable apartment, it’s quiet, ours was on the 2nd floor. The pool and restaurant are good. There is about 10 minute walk to a beach. A closer walk to a walkway across the clifftop, that meets up with a boardwalk, that will take you into town. The town, Carvoeiro, is cute, with shops, restaurants and a beach. We did have a few issues. Check in is after4pm, we couldn’t check in until 5pm. They told us we could checkout an hour late (at noon), but the cleaning people arrived before 11:30. There was only one bath towel, no dish soap. The bedside lights didn’t work at first, but we found they were plugged into the wrong outlet for the wall switch to work. The TV in the living room didn’t have audio, so they brought us a desktop TV.

4/10 Fair

We checked out a day early. Our rooms had smoke alarms flashing above each bed. Curtains and even the towels provided were dirty. It’s overall a bit dated and wasn’t helped by the “entertainment” playing music until 11. The place needs a bit of a refresh. The breakfast was nice and staff around the restaurant were attentive.

10/10 Exceptional

Had a wonderful holiday in Portugal. Pestana Palm Gardens was a great base. Staff were friendly and helpful especially the bar staff. We paid for a premium sea view townhouse and were a little disappointed with how tired and basic it was compared to the photos on website. Having said thar it was.spacious with lovely terraces and air conditioning which was definitely needed. The swimming pool and sunbeds got extremely busy every day so need to get there early!! Bar snacks for lunch were ideal, tasty and reasonable price. Carvoeiro was about 30mins walk downhill and we sometimes got a taxi back up for 5 - 6 euros.

6/10 Good

This place was nice but there are things that this hotel needs to work on. First, the check in time is at 4 pm. This is a very late time and they do not provide an area to leave our luggages as we wait. Second, we booked a villa for 5 adults, but there was only space for 4 adults. There was a sofa bed, but the quality of the bed was so terrible that one of the adults was not able to sleep on it. Third, the hot water would run out quickly. For a villa with 5 adults, it was disappointing that the last few had to shower in cold water. Fourth, there is no housekeeping service on Sundays. Lastly, there is no room service. So if you had to get bottled water, you would have to go all the way to the restaurant to order one and take it back to your villa.
