The are importants and noisy construction works on the retaining walls just in front of the hotel. We cannot enjoy our room balcony and we were woke up very early most of the days except Sunday. The bathroom is tiny and basic.

I booked this via Expedia and they helped with ensuring I still had my booking due to very high winds unabling planes to land on the island. Great job! The hotel was nice, clean and central. The room was modern and had a nice view of the fountain. The Reception staff in Fisherman’s hotel were outstanding! Helpful, jolly and had time for you. The breakfast was nice but the same daily. It would be nice if they changed it up. The room was also tight for the buffet. Staff very helpful. The bay was beautiful along with the weather! I am glad I booked with Expedia and had a great holiday.

Pestana properties are our 'go to' properties when travelling in Europe. The staff are always super friendly & helpful. Churchill Bay is a lovely authentic fishing village. The hotel has a lovely roof top restaurant. The food was fresh & very well prepared. We stayed 4 nights & dined at the hotel every night. There are many other options but we enjoyed the convenience & birds eye view of the bay's activies at the sunset.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel and from the moment we arrived we absolutely loved it. It is a lovely place so what’s not to love but things could always go wrong well not here - it didn’t. We stayed for 6 nights and were so sad to leave. The room was great, we had a King room 2nd floor with balcony and a extraordinary view to the bay - like waking up and the first thing you can see from the bed is the blue water, just absolutely gorgeous. The other amazing thing that made the whole experience to go another level was the staff. Huge thanks to Joao Caldeira - yes I got their names. They were amazing people. Hands down the best service, beyond customer service- these people made the time there so enjoyable. Joao Freitas at the breakfast bar - amazing guy, superb service. Angel Salazar and Nuno Pinto again beyond amazing guys at the bar and breakfast area. My wife and I always had a blast with them. They would also provide recommendations for nice local places to visit. Last but not least, the ladies at reception, all of them were genuinely nice and helpful in every way. The property is beautiful, small but it got everything you need and we totally loved Camara De Lobos area - only 15 minutes from downtown Funchal but far enough from it to provide a low key night to relax around their small streets with lots of bars and restaurants including the bar at Pestana and they also have a restaurant although we didn’t eat dinner there only breakfast which it was full breakfast! Love

10/10 Exceptional

This is our second time staying at the hotel. We liked it so much that we returned for a follow up visit. Like our stay the previous year, the facility was great and the staff was friendly and helpful as before. Our critiques are minor. We were there over the Christmas season and the loudspeaker broadcasting holiday music during the day was right outside our room, meaning that having the window open for fresh air and the sound of the waves was not an option. We did use the sauna and found that the door hinge was broken and we worried about breaking the glass door as we were going in and out. Other than that, we have no other concerns. We would happily stay there again and would recommend (and have recommended) the hotel to other visitors.
