Pestana Colombos Premium Club

Estrada Regional 120, Porto Santo, Madeira, 9400-242, Portugal

This all-inclusive resort wouldn't look out of place in Arizona—the striking, modern, sand-colored buildings blend into the arid surroundings, though they're perfectly placed to take advantage of a lovely 9½-km (6-mile) stretch of beach just across the bridge. The cool, minimalist rooms, decorated in neutral colors, include nice touches such as flat-screen TVs, free minibars (beer, water and soft drinks), and oversized soaking tubs. More spacious, freestanding two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom pool villas were added in 2014. The resort includes four restaurants and four pools (including one for kids), pool tables, a library, and a paid babysitting service. Access to the Blue Flag beach is via an exclusive footbridge, opened with room key card, and the hotel provides beach umbrellas and sun loungers. Although there are several bars and restaurants on-site, guests are also welcome to use those of the sister Pestana Porto Santo, next door.
