The Pestana Carlton was one of the first hotels built on the island of Madeira, and with its enviable location, lush gardens, landscaped pool terraces, and impressive selection of bars and restaurants, it’s easy to see why it has stood the test of time.
This luxurious landmark features several large pools, both indoor and outdoor, but if you prefer sea swimming, there’s direct access to the ocean from the hotel’s jetty. There’s also a dive centre where you can learn to scuba, go snorkelling or swim with dolphins (sure to be a hit with the kids).
