We stayed for 5 nights and had a lovely time. The hotel is in a perfect spot. Lots of sun loungers and an amazing breakfast. We went into Funchal a few evenings and ate out of the hotel. We watched an amazing fireworks display one evening. We went to two lidos just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. They are... More

This Hotel really deserves its five star rating. Absolutely no complaints about anything. It is situated about a forty minute walk outside Funchal City Centre, which suited us perfectly. The island is a delight and the micro climate not too hot, making it ideal to explore. Lovely Levada walks in the hills.

My wife and I wanted a 5 star hotel so that we could relax and swim to our hearts content. The pool at the Pestana Grand is the biggest one in the island and is set amidst Palm Trees and lovely gardens. There were more than enough sun loungers and parasols for all the guests - it was everything we... More

We stayed top floor and had a great view, but the staff were not friendly and at the pool our kids were not aloud to do anything with a little sound. So we mainly just slept at the hotel.
