Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most relaxing holiday ever. Pools and grounds very clean and well kept. This hotel is not 5 star as classed but still a lovely stay. Food was okay but very much the same over the two weeks . Deserts were lovely. Sun beds always available around the pool but need updating as they were very uncomfortable. Beach was beautiful but the sea was quite rough and very few people were able to swim. Sun beds were charged for on the beach and could only have in multiples of two, so three of us had to pay for four sun beds. Entertainment was poor, non existing some evenings and always after 10pm which is very late to wait around. 4x4 tour was a lovely few hours out. Two weeks in this hotel is so relaxing if the weather is good.

My husband and I spent a week here from the 18th Sep. We originally booked into the Porto Santo hotel but were told on arrival we had been upgraded to a pool villa within the Columbus hotel next door. Initially we were really pleased to have an upgraded room within a villa block with just 3 other bedrooms each having shared access to lounge, kitchen and private pool. Although as there was shared facilities avaliable we did later feel that our room was perhaps a bit smaller than others in the main hotels due to no other lounge / seating area other than the balcony in the room. Cannot fault the hotel rooms or grounds for cleanliness, room cleaned daily. All ammenities are within walking distance at the two hotels. Choice of pool bar, evening bar and buffet resturant at both hotels so you can decide which suits you best or try both options to get a bit of variety. There are queues at the pool and evening bars for drinks as people have previously said. This can get a bit frustrating but you get used to it. We never had a problem queuing for the buffet resturants. Weather was really good, hotter than I expected during the day, it can start out cloudy but cleared by lunch time to have a hot afternoon. We did have rain a couple of mornings but again cleared for the afternoon. The staff are all friendly and do their best to accomodate your needs even though they do work long shifts and perhaps under staffed. The entertainment team are surprisingly good and do a range of shows on the evening plus live music in the bars before their shows. Overall we really enjoyed the holiday, good food and drinks, good weather, comfortable room and a relaxing break. Would recommend this resort to couples and younger families.

Firstly, this hotel is unsuitable for disabled people,although the bathrooms are very suitable The self service restaurant is very poor and guests are limited to beer or wine at mealtime. We tried the poolside food area but found flies on the food. The speciality restaurants are at the hotel next-door and although they offer a complimentary buggy, it still involves a lengthy walk to reception and the same on the return. Fine for the fit and able., We tried the maderian restaurant on one occasion,but it was just about passable. We ate out for most days as there are some very good restaurants nearby and very reasonable. My impression is that the hotel was built with the intension of combining the facilities of the hotel next-door. Everything was cheap money saving products and produce. On a positive side we fell in love with the island and the people. We are planning to return in the winter but not to pestana.

We are habitués at Pestana Colombos and at Pestana hotels in general. People say you don't go back to a place where you were happy. But we come back every year and we don't regret it. On the contrary, there is always something that makes us want to come back even more! It's a great hotel in the "paradise" island! Very friendly staff, great rooms and in the all inclusive option it's difficult to offer better diversity. You have to make your own experience and I'm sure you'll want to come back!

My wife and I had the pleasure to stay 4 nights at this wonderful all-inclusive hotel. we stayed the 1st week in October, and it was not crowded, and the weather was great, sunny and warm. The service was fantastic, and the food was very good with a lot of choices. One tip, you may want to request a room close to stairs or bring a flashlight as the outside corridor lighting is very dim. But the resort is VERY safe!

We switched to this hotel from their next door property. Rooms are beautiful and large. The staff here are really on top of things. The pool area is gorgeous although not a lot of swimmers due to water temperature. Don’t love a buffet although there is an omelette or eggs to order area in the back which is the best breakfast option. They have a great assortment of cheeses.

It was really great the experience, Just a downside of the rooms, I feel they need an update/more maintenance as some of my mates that I was with they were definitely not worth 5 star hotel. Other then that I recommend, the whole experience is beautiful to rest up. The view is just so awesome, the best is for you to see for yourself.

The resort is a bit far from the centre but they offer a shuttle almost everyday which is ok. The place is amazing and also the private beach. You can use the facilities of both hotels (Colombos and Porto Santo) which allows you to take advantage of the best of each. The facilities are very nice and the staff is very welcoming. Nothing to complain about them. The resort lacks some maintenance. We were first put in a room where the AC didn’t work. In our second room the AC worked but the shower was loosing water everywhere. It was like a pool every time we had a shower. The telephone didn’t work either. The “special” restaurants are a trap. They are only open like once or twice per week and you are only allowed to try more than 1 if you stay longer than 7 nights. The Italian one is not worth it. It was a pity that we couldn’t try the spa (at Colombos) because the jacuzzi was always full of children. If I had to choose now, I would still stay at Colombos because it’s more quiet. Porto Santo is more for families with children who don’t care about a lot of noise.

Well after so many negative reviews, we were getting worried about the hotel. But no need to worry as we can say we are having a great time. The food to date is excellent and the accommodation is great. We still have a week to go. One person that needs congratulations is Jose in the outside area of the restaurant, he is so attentive and a credit to the Columbus Pestana. Also the island is truly fantastic, with amazing people, and a first class beach. Looking forward to week 2, this is our 8th visit to the Columbus and love it❤️

Rooms super big, clean and comfy… unfortunately all the rest deserves unfortunately bad ranking… outdoor facilities missing a bit more of cleaning on regular basis… thematic restaurants are as well (from the main restaurant is quite expected) very poor quality… Service is about people… we see that people with some functions (such as bar tender, cook…) have very strong attitude (not very nice one)… For us was main disappointment thematic restaurants, as the service was poor, food even poorer and we gad feeling they are rushing us out…
