A well known and respected hotel and timeshare complex in Funchal, the Pestana Carlton Tower Suites is somewhat of a focal point on this lovely part of the south coast of Madeira. Views of the Atlantic Ocean from its rooms and suites are sublime and despite being close to the city, it is also quiet and relaxing.
People rate this place well on TripAdvisor, with special mention of the friendly staff and levels of personalised service. This area is also loaded up with shops and restaurants (such as the highly rated Dona Amelhia and Reid's for afternoon tea) and is a just 10 minutes from the centre of Funchal on foot.
There are nearly 300 spacious units at the Pestana Carlton Tower Suites, three dozen of which are suites (one-bedroom apartments). You either get a sea, mountain or garden/pool view and each is sumptuously decorated with soothing colours of the region and have flat screen TV and balcony.
The studios are good for two people, one-bed units for four, while all are air-conditioned and carpeted and come with a kitchenette with fridge, microwave and kettle. Guests have the choice of no less than three well designed pool areas; the saltwater Atlantic and (winter-heated) Garden pools and the indoor Magic Spa pool. The latter offers the opportunity to be pampered, with its massage, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath.
Pestana Carlton also offers a trio of quality restaurants, together with lively bars, each of which has fine ocean views and offers tastes and beverages from around the world. Service is reckoned to be exceptional and the food delicious. You are also well within reach of the city centre and marina, where there are quaint cafés and many bars and shops. Highlights of Funchal include its stunning harbour and lazy old town wandering, together with its pretty churches and palaces, botanical gardens and cable car ride up to Monte, and exhilarating toboggan run back down.
Madeira is volcanic and noted for its historic levada canals and associated paths, which make for great walking. Some serious coastal and mountain hikes can also be incorporated and you can organise these from the Pestana Carlton Tower Suites. There are also many more beaches around the island along with numerous quaint villages and great driving all around.
Car hire is thus a popular option here, with the drive from Madeira Funchal Airport taking about 20 minutes.
