    Not prepared to help with Covid testing

    Very nice hotel with wonderful staff. Hotel was what I expected, breakfast had a lot of choices. My only complaint is that the front desk did not have a clue as to help with Covid 19 test needed to leave the island. They sent us to the wrong place originally and we had to take another cab to a different testing site. We were lucky some random person was able to help us with our cab driver to give him the correct location. We were told that our results would be emailed to us the next day. They were not. We found out from another guest that we needed to pick them up. The pick up location was supposed to have closed at 1:00 it was now 1:40. The 2 ladies at the front desk would not call the site to tell them we were coming. It worked out in the end but was a lot of unnecessary stress. All they need is clear instructions printed in a few different languages to hand out to guests. There is not much English spoken on the island.

    Welcoming hosts of pandemic proportions

    We were semi stranded waiting on an emergency flight back to the US. Gonçalo and his staff made us feel at home and were available to help with any small detail. They kept us well informed and calm. Room, pool, and meal services were excellent! Thank you so much!

    Our stay at the Pestana Tropico was perfect in every way. The hotel staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. I give the hotel the highest rating. I would most certainly stay again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Overall was a good stay. However, the pictures of the massive swimming pool overlooking the ocean is not a reality. Its 4 times smaller and you don't see the ocean from it as it covered by vegetation. I also think that this hotel is overpriced. I would pay $60 per night but not a $100 +... (No soap in the room only dush gel that drys your skin)
