Hotel Chain in Madeira Assures Visitors

Great Hotels Organisation has confirmed that its properties in MadeiraPestana Casino Park, Quinta da Bela Vista and Hotel Jardim Atlantico—were unaffected by the recent rainstorms and mudslides that occurred in the region and are operating as usual.

Celina Sousa from Hotel Jardim Atlantico said that the disaster did not affect either the hotels on the island or the airport. "The road from the airport to our hotel in Prazeres is in good condition," she said. "The surrounding area of the hotel and the Natural Park of Madeira was not affected. Hotel occupation is at 90 percent, however there have been a high number of cancellations as tourists have received the wrong information from the media.”

Isabel Vasconcelos from Pestana Hotels and Resorts also said that that the hotel area was not affected by the storm, and as such all Pestana Hotels on the island are fully operational. "We’re gathering specialized gardening, cleaning and maintenance brigades to be made available to cleaning operations in the affected areas, and we’re also promoting the collection of blankets and clothes among the group’s collaborators to be donated to the official authorities currently coordinating the humanitarian aid to those most affected,” she said. 

GHO remains in regular contact with member hotels and can talk to any customers who may have questions or concerns about visiting member hotels in Madeira at this time.
