We had a wonderful holiday in Madeira staying at the Hotel Vila Gale. The hotel has excellent facilities, great food & wine & brilliant staff who are extremely friendly & do everything they can to make you stay an enjoyable one.
The Pestana Grand is an excellent hotel of true 5 star quality set in beautiful surroundings of luxury. The swimming pool was so inviting and wrapped itself around half of the hotel, overlooking he sea front and set amongst the most beautiful tropical garden. Every morning you would wake up to silence and darkness (around 7am) with an emerging sunrise ready to light up the hotel. At breakfast time you were greeted by staff who would allocate a table for you allowing you to enjoy breakfast. There was no rush and plenty of room with ample choice of food taste for breakfast. The rest of the day was enjoyed indulging yourself in the hotel facilities and soaking up the sunshine around the pool. A poolside bar was easily accessed with some shade to enjoy to take a break from the sunshine. The hotel rooms are spacious and immaculate with a generous sized bathroom in good decorative taste and a decent wardrobe with plenty of shelving and hanging space. It was a real pleasure to return to the hotel after a day of touring the island to return to such luxury. I would definitely return to the Pestana Grand and thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
The hotel is situated up a very steep hill above the town. It takes 20 mins to walk into town but the return journey is quite exhausting on a hot day. A courtesy bus is provided at certain times of the day and taxis are numerous and quite cheap. The staff are among the best we have encountered, nothing is too much trouble though at times they were under a lot of pressure. They were all extremely helpful and conscientious and made our stay very pleasant. The restaurant was quite good, better than the bar food, breakfasts were excellent. The pool is slightly smaller than the photo but very clean and there is a second outdoor pool as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel and it is as good as any four star hotel in England, and a lot cheaper! I'm surprised that some reviewers can knit pick as they do.
Friendly and welcoming staff on reception. Comfortable room with lovely outlook over the private garden down to the coast about 3 miles away. Good centre for touring but without a car you might feel a bit out on a limb. Ideal for a walking holiday. The large covered swimming pool is excellent. A delicious breakfast, included in the room rate, can be taken on the terrace to enjoy the sun!

we stayed at dom pedro 2 adults one 3 year old this is our second time ,for the price you can`t get a better hotel we had just room only because there are lovely eating places outside the hotel or in the centre we also hired a car which for us was a must as we went round the island. the hotel is not 5 star so if youe fancy a 5 star but think you can get the same service your mistaken. but for a place to stay for room only you cant beat it.the swimming pools are not heated but the time we went the weather was hot so nice and refreasing for us .they have 3 pools in total and tennis courts plus free internet at reception only. once again i stress for the price it`s great but do remember it is a 3 star.
This is a minimalist hotel ,tastefully furnished and offers excellent value for money . The hotel is in a good position near bus stop and taxi rank and close to some very nice restaurants . It is on a main road and there is traffic noise directly outside the hotel but we were not disturbed at all whilst in the hotel . We had a room on a high floor which was probably quieter than the lower floors We found the staff very helpful and friendly Breakfast was very good . Pool area is small but during our stay it was little used and we never had a problem finding a sunbed . There are lovely views of the sea from the pool area .Many of the bedrooms (which are a very good size ) have side sea views .
The hotel is spotlessly clean . We would definitely stay there again
