2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Pestana Churchill Bay overlooks the bay of Câmara de Lobos, a picturesque Madeiran fishing city a few minutes away from Funchal. Now occupying the former Council Chamber and fish wholesale market buildings located on the seafront, the Pestana Churchill Bay was the very first hotel to open in the historic centre of Câmara de Lobos. The backdrop of the city’s white houses, green mountains and deep blue waters of the Atlantic is the ideal setting for a holiday in this charming accommodation. With 57 rooms inspired by the paintings of Winston Churchill, a restaurant offering regional flavours, with a bar and esplanade, a panoramic rooftop pool and a sauna, the Pestana Churchill Bay offers all the conditions for a relaxing holiday in a genuine locality of Madeira. Next to the reception, open to the public, there is a bar and lounge, superiorly decorated, with an outdoor terrace two steps from the water, where poncha and other traditional drinks are served, in the company of Churchill in full size bronze sculpture, hotsopt for lovers of selfies.

Lovely restaurant belonging to the Pestana Churchill Bay Hotel overlooking the bay of Camara de Lobos. Lovely fish selection beautifully served by the great Head Waiter. Well worth a visit and include a walk around the public rooms in the hotel before you eat.

Excellent hotel option outside of Funchal. The hotel is located right on the bay with lovely views and sounds of waves. The rooms are nicely proportioned and nicely decorated (and new). Camara de Lobos is a quaint town with nice restaurants. Close proximity to Funchal. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Cámara de Lobos has a real village feel and Pestana Churchill Bay has a prime location around the harbour with both the rooms (superior particularly) and restaurant overlooking the bay. The hotel is high quality yet had a very laid back feel. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The restaurant provided an excellent breakfast and provided some of the best evening meals in the village when you wanted to eat in. The reception was also very helpful in organising trips and making sure everything else was ok. The COVID-19 protocols were very good
