My family and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at the pestana grand. The hotel itself is immaculate and the grounds and setting right on the promenade are beautiful, defiantly one of the most attractive hotels in Funchal. Our bedroom was of an excellent size for my husband and I and our six year old daughter, with a balcony overlooking spectacular views. There was an excellent choice and variety at breakfast, sparkling wine which was a nice touch, and staff constantly checking everything was in order. On arrival will were welcomed with a glass of Madeiran wine and were promptly checked into our room and our suitcases were delivered the quickest I've ever experienced. All 3 pools were very well maintained and great to have an indoor pool when going in February although saying that my daughter had fun in the 2 large outside pools. But the most important thing I would like to stress is the wonderful staff at the hotel, very helpful and always so willing to please. We wanted to hire a car one day and straight away reception booked it for us had it delivered and collected at the hotel and suggested routes and places to visit that would be ideal for us as a family. The head of concierge was excellent and got us a table in one of the best restaurants in Funchal even though it was fully booked. It was my husbands birthday whilst on holiday and when we returned from our day out there was a bottle of sparkling wine on ice in our bedroom with a hand written note from the hotel. At breakfast time we liked to sit by the window looking out to the pool and sea and the waiters would always try their best. Housekeeping was excellent too and nice to have a turndown service. Nothing really was too much trouble for the staff they really did aim to please. We were also extremely impressed with the island of madeira, so lush and colourful with flowers and then the contrast of a cosmopolitan capital of Funchal with its endless supply of excellent restaurants. The cable car up to monte and the toboggan ride is a must and the boat ride on the Santa Maria is fab and we saw loads of dolphins. We had walks to little quaint fishing villages, and explored the island by car with ease with lots of interesting things to see and do, our 6 year old really loved it, so I would recommend madeira for a fun family holiday. The airport is great too to watch the planes take off! We would just like to say thank you to all the staff at the pestana for ensuring we had a wonderful stay at the island.
