We stayed at the Pestana as a family, two adults and two boys aged 3 and in July, booking a suite directly with the hotel. First impressions were very good, the hotel is well appointed, location is a way out of Funchal but there are several shops and restaurants nearby, including a large shopping centre and a smaller one both...

Came back on 4th August 2008 from a week's stay at this hotel. Upon checking in at reception desk, there was a long queue of guests waiting to be attended to and only 1 member of staff manning the desk. As a result, we waited for over 45 mins to be checked in. Eventually we were given our room keycard... More

We have just come back from a fabulous holiday on this magical island. It was our first visit to Madeira and we just wanted to relax. We chose the Pestana Grand (bed and breakfast) for the location and facilites, which were just about perfect. The hotel has everything you could possible want (choice of restaurants, long cool clean pools, friendly... More

Just arrived back from a very relaxing week at the Pestana Grand. Ours was not a holiday ownership but I booked on a bed and breakfast basis direct with the hotel and paid for a superior room, which was exactly what we got. A lovely bright, airy room overlooking the sea. As usual, I'll start off with the good .......... More

We stayed here by exchanging a week of a Cancun time-share. We booked our week in October 2007 when reviews here were uniformly positive. Around January a few negative reviews gave us pause. Here are our thoughts to consider. This is, indeed, overall a 5 star facility. There were some minor issues with maintenance: fountains outside and inside were not... More

I have nothing bad at all to say about this hotel!!! This was a late booking, and was found in the adverts at the back of one of the Sunday papers. It was a very good hotel. The room was bright, clean and spacious. It overlooked the driveway and was on the 2nd floor, but it was very quiet. The... More

Just back from 2 weeks at this hotel. No doubt 2 weeks unbroken sunshine helped but the hotel and facilities were very good with more than enough sun loungers to go around and the grounds were very well kept. The atmosphere expected of a place can be a bit subjective and it is probably not ideal for someone wanting a... More

Stayed at the Pestana in Feb 08 We booked a suite from the hotel website and got a good deal, we were very impressed when we checked in, 2 large rooms and 2 balconies with fantastic sea views.
