I recently stayed at the Pestana Grand Hotel on Madeira Island. It's in a beautiful location on the blue Atlantic. The buffet breakfast is overwhelming and delicious. There was live entertainment in the lounge each night. All staff members I encountered were very friendly, helpful, and professional. There is a promenade between the property and the ocean that you may use to walk to a grocery store or other small restaurants, and the Forum shopping center is just a short walk up the hill. Note that the courtesy bus/shuttle only goes to the casino, not into the heart of Funchal. I would definitely stay at this property again if I return to the Island.
