Located on the lush island of Madeira, with direct access to the sea, the  Pestana Carlton Madeira Premium Ocean Resort is perfectly situated for relaxation or sightseeing. The hotel offers four pools, a comprehensive selection of activities and a range of restaurants.

Built into the island’s cliff face, the hotel’s location affords unobstructed panoramic views and direct access to the Atlantic Sea. A bird handler on-site uses a trained hawk to deter other birds from nesting around the property. Madeira’s Old Town, or Zona Velha, is a 15-minute drive, or a 30-minute walk away. Its streets are  lined with colourful painted doors. From here, you can take a cable car up to Monte to admire the Municipal Gardens – and, if you’re feeling brave, ride one of the island’s famous taboggans (called Carro de Cesto) back down through the winding streets. Funchal’s Municipal Gardens are a 20-minute walk east of the hotel, and Madeira Botanical Garden is 15-minute drive in the same direction.

Rooms are decorated in pale blues and beiges that reflect the seafront setting, and enjoy views of the mountains, pool, or sea. Upgrade to a Junior Suite to enjoy more space and a freestanding bath, or upgrade to a Suite to enjoy separate sleeping and living areas. Rooms with sea views are the quietest and offer panoramic views of the sea.

Other facilities

With a weekly programme of events, including Madeira wine tasting, traditional folk dancing and live music (subject to change), the hotel provides plenty of entertainment and cultural insight without needing to venture far. If you prefer something more active, there is also a mini-golf course and dive point where new and experienced divers are welcome. Further activities, including boat excursions, windsurfing and golf are available nearby. Sports fans can also visit the British-inspired Pub for a drink while watching a game on the TV. For some down time, take a dip in one of the pools – choose from one accessible at sea level, another on the hotel’s lower level, one for kids and another indoors. To indulge in some holiday pampering, the Magic Spa offers treatments using ‘Magic Potions,’ such as the Rebalance, Relaxation and Without Stress packages. A physical therapist is also on hand for specialist treatments and sports massage.

Dining information
