We have just come back from a very enjoyable stay at the Pestana Grand Hotel in Funchal. This was our second visit to this hotel (our first visit was in 2008). This time we booked a week with timeshare exchange RCI and stopped in room 1658 which was a roof top room overlooking mountains with a partial sea view. The... More

We have stayed at the Pestana Grand several times and have never been dissappointed. The staff are friendly and efficient, the place is spotlessly clean and fresh. It is beautiful and modern at the same time. Wonderful views. The food and variety is always good, and appetising. Nothing is too much trouble and one is made to feel that the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Pestana Grand. Our room was spacious with excellent facilities including a kettle although after the first supplies of tea/coffee were used, replacements had to be paid for. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were great with everything we could possibly want. We had bed and breakfast as there are... More

Dear guest, we are happy to known that you enjoyed your holidays with us. Our hotel is not as near to town as the others hotels in the area but, we believe that, as it's not located in the main road it is also quieter, offering our guests the possibility to take the hotel bus to town, which takes around...

This was our first holiday at the Pestana Grand and we were very impressed with the views of the headland and the beautiful gardens. Our hotel room and the general reception areas were immaculate. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast buffet every day was superb.There is a long paved promenade directly behind the hotel for... More

What a lovely hotel! spacious room, spotlessly clean and in a quiet location with beautiful views from both back and front facing rooms. With buffet style meals each evening - there is something to suit everyone. I'd recommend the fish. There is alternative dining on selected nights but we didnt try them - perhaps next time. A free bus into... More

From the moment we walked into our room we knew we would like this hotel. The staff were always helpful and courteous at all times. The location was further out from the centre of Funchal than we imagined but there was a courtesy bus which we used on a number of occasions. We like walking so enjoyed walking from the... More

I had never been to Madeira before and now I have discovered it, I will happily come back every year. It is the perfect escape from cold British February- a beautiful, quiet and relaxing island to stay on. We feasted on fish all week. The holiday was very good value, costing £398 for flight and 5* hotel for the week.... More

Delivers what a five-star hotel should, and of course (as I've written before) the location is great for our purposes - quieter, out of the city centre; large, clean rooms and specific requests met; professional yet friendly staff. Our favourite breakfast buffet anywhere - surely no-one could fail to be satisified. (OK, well if you want kippers you might be,... More
