Excellent 5 star hotel just outside Funchal Madeira. Location is perfect on the prom with the best views, so book a sea view rather than garden room. All the staff were super pleasant and happy to help us. Madeiran people are some of the nicest we have met in all Europe. We loved the additional 3 restaurants along side the main buffet, the pool and landscaped gardens give it great setting. Extra special thanks to super efficient Sara on reception who made my 65th birthday so memorable for me and my wife, she was a real star. Please note the waiter/waitresses are all very good, as were the chambermaids who rescued our stuff left back in the room and also Jacqueline on reception made our stay so great. We will come back here next year ... or even sooner if we can. Management should look after this hotel and the staff who run it, we LOVED it all.

My partner and I returned to Pestana Grand and Madeira for our third visit since 2019 - it could have been the fifth if not for lockdown in 2020 & 2021! We were not disappointed at all. Apart from the wonderful location, beautiful gardens and comfortable accommodation, what drew us back was the hospitality. Because of our very early flight we arrived mid morning while other guests were still checking out but Reception kindly checked us in. We also had a pleasant surprise to find a welcome-back note with a bottle of Madeira wine and a Madeira cake. Such a lovely touch!

We were happy to be back after a few years and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. When my husband needed to visit a Dr the guest relations staff were incredibly helpful, even though they should have finished their day 30 minutes before and all the staff we met were courteous and very helpful;. Will be back!
