If you want to come to Madeira and enjoy the best the urban Funchal, the exotic mountain and the reliable climate have to offer, stay at the Pestana Carlton. A 10-minute walk from the city center and with a wide and magnificent view of sea to the front and side that you will get to know with your eyes closed, this 5-star hotel in Madeira has all the conditions and services to make your stay memorable.
With direct entrance to the 6th floor, where you will find the reception desk; a reading room; and the magnificent views that will follow you throughout the days, make your check in and get ready to find your own version of paradise. It is worth investing in a room with a sea view: after all you came to an island, certainly you don't want to sleep all day looking at a mountain or garden views. If you think that you will spend more nights in the magnificent balcony of your room, ask for a room with view over the bay of Funchal, which is illuminated at night as if it were actual decoration.
It is never too much to stress that the New Year's eve spectacle, for which Madeira is known worldwide, has here one of the best viewing spots.If you prefer to come in June, to the Atlantic Festival, when the fireworks to mark the jubilant entry into the new year are chosen, the Pestana Carlton Madeira is also a wonderful option. But it is not only in booming parties that one can spend one's nights in Madeira: the hotel's restaurant, "Os Arcos", has showcooking and magnificent breakfast and dinner bufetts; as the lobby bar, with live music, which changes to the pool bar during the more pleasant days and nights. Which are almost all of them, between May and September.
The famous wooden "The Pub", which evokes a real British pub, serves delicious snacks, soups, fish n'chips and has games to accompany your beer in the afternoon or your favourite team. If you want to have a more sophisticated meal, go down stairs and have dinner at the Taverna Grill, with wine options that combine the most international flavors with the most Madeiran dishes. The medieval decor and the warm colors of the island help accentuate the surprise of varying your menu.
With many regular guests and an attractive space for families and for people with reduced mobility, the Carlton Madeira is divided into several different areas, offering all guests a relaxing stay. Rest in the large outdoor heated salt water swimming pool, while your children play mini golf or in the playground. Or go down the grand staircase to the pool, close to the sea access, where you can swim along miles with the support of buoys.
Enjoy the fantastic 25-meter indoor swimming pool and escape to one of our relaxation rooms, evoking the Levadas and the laurisilva forest, and have a nice time with your date. Or let the mischievous bubbles from the outdoor jacuzzi keep all serious faces away. Or go to the spa where the relaxing colors and the energizing treatments from Magic Spa leave you as good as new.You can spend all your energy walking the fantastic levadas (mountain paths), or swimming vigorously in the Atlantic Ocean. If you go for a boat tour in search of whales and dolphins, you are likely to stop in one of the coves to dive straight in this wonderful island of contrasts between green and blue.
