Pestana Blue Alvor Beach & Golf
Pestana Ocean Bay is an all-inclusive resort with panoramic views of Funchal's Camara de Lobos hillside. Its location right next to Formosa beach makes it an ideal choice for divers. During the summer dive boards are installed, allowing you to somersault directly into the ocean.
Amenities at the hotel include an outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, gym and games room. The Arlequim Bar has live music performances, while the Pool Bar allows you to quench your thirst while relaxing in the sun.
The Arlequim Restaurant offers great panoramic views of the ocean. On Wednesdays bailinho (a traditional type of Madeiran music) is performed, with local dishes served to accompany the entertainment.
All rooms at Ocean Bay face the ocean and have balconies, so there's no need to pay extra to guarantee an ocean view room. Despite being an all-inclusive resort, the rooms all have a kitchenette, which is ideal if you want to bring some of your favourite snacks and drinks from home.
The hotel offers a free shuttle service to central Funchal, where you can explore famous attractions such as the botanical gardens and museum of sacred art. There is also free car parking, ideal for those who wish to hire a car.

The services are ok (as expected), but the apartment I stayed was continuous with a machinery noise, and a kitchen smell.
When I complai, the answer was simple... bare with it, it will pass.
Good location, staff very good, very clean, good food. Too crowded, pools and surrounded areas with a lot of people. In theory we could change the pool towels every day, but in practice it was hard...
+ : Rooms look nice and most of the staff very friendly (only reason why I do rate it as poor instead of terrible)
