Two weeks available to use by the end of 2022 or during 2023 at the 5 star Pestana Grand Ocean Resort, Funchal, Madeira in a superb studio apartment that sleeps 3 adults or two adults and two children at just 375 Euros per week.  There are incredible sea, pool and garden views looking out to sea. You have excellent WiFi in the room and on the balcony, a modern TV, huge bed that can be two doubles or one large Queen size bed plus the sofa bed sleeps one adult or two children, a small kitchen with good facilities, dining areas inside and on the balcony, sun loungers on the balcony, a beautiful bathroom and air-conditioning with thermostatic control.

The location of the hotel is exceptional with the gardens of the hotel meeting the coastal promenade.  Set at the prestigious West end of Funchal, a quality residential area of the city with a superb promenade that takes you into Funchal centre or West along to the coastal boardwalk to a fishing village.  The whole area has restaurants and cafes for everyone plus a huge shopping mall and two big supermarkets.

Included in the service of the hotel, is a courtesy coach transferring Pestana Grand guests into and out of Funchal centre numerous times per day if you prefer not to walk.

You can self-cater in your apartment but will be fully supported by the 5 star hotel with a first class chambermaid service, excellent pool side service and then you have Owner Relations to make sure you have the most superb holiday ever (more on this below)!

You can use all of the amenities the hotel offers to include two huge outdoor swimming pools, an indoor swimming pool with spa, well equipped gym, the lounge bar with entertainment, numerous in-house restaurants and more…

We will make the reservation at the hotel for you immediately with your preferred weeks (subject to availability) and also organise for your transfer from the airport to the hotel. The only additional costs are; 75 Euros per week admin cost to be paid at reception on arrival for the change of use by a ‘guest’ not the owner of the weeks.  Then the taxi by mini bus is 25 Euros per person.

We have many years of hints, tips and recommendations about everything Madeira to share if that would help too!

We, the owners of Creative Property Marketing (Sarah and David) are also the owners of this impressive 5 star timeshare in Funchal, Madeira.  We sadly have not been able to go and use our timeshare weeks for a few years so have banked the weeks with Pestana. So, would like to offer the weeks to our friends, family and clients on a first come, first serve basis!

The time share apartments are located in a completely separate part of the hotel than that open to the public.  Also, there is an ‘owners’ team dedicated to look after all time share owners and you can visit them in their office to ask for information. You may wish to buy public bus passes, book trips or book a rental car. They will also organise your return transfer to the airport at 25 Euros which is much cheaper than booked at reception.

There is also an owner’s lounge which houses a good library of books in numerous languages but mostly English, where you can swap and borrow books free of charge.  There is a computer in the owner’s lounge for free use too if you wish to use it.

The apartment has:

♦  Huge bed of two doubles pushed together or they can be separated if preferred.  If you required the mattress softened or pillows changed, just tell housekeeping and they will organise this for you.

♦  Sofa bed that sleeps two.  Ideal for children or one adult.

♦  Excellent WiFi in the room that extends to the balcony.  If you need to work or want to stream TV, this is not a problem as the speed is good.  A Firestick or similar can be plugged into the TV to stream television programmes or movies if desired.

♦  Air-conditioning via ducts on a thermostatic control.

♦  Decent size kitchen with an electric hob (two rings), a combi oven that is a microwave, oven and grill, an electric kettle, a toaster, fully stocked kitchen cupboards with crockery and cutlery for 4 people, cooking pots and pans, a fridge with ice box and gadgets such as a juicer.

♦  There is a dining table for eating indoors if preferred and also a dining table outside.  There are place settings to make the table look good if you dine in.

♦  There is the sofa too which is comfortable for lounging or use as an additional bed for two more guests.

♦  The en-suite bathroom has a full length bath with shower over, a vanity unit with marble top, hair dryer and magnifying mirror.  The hot water is always plentiful even at peak times.

♦  The bedroom area has built-in wardrobes and if you require more hangers, extra bedding or anything, just call housekeeping and they will bring what you need to you very quickly.

♦  From everywhere in the apartment you can see a full sea view for as far as the eye can see.  On very clear days you can see Bird Island which is a nature colony.  We have seen various species of dolphins swimming, jumping and hunting in pods.  We have also seen porpoise and whales from the balcony as well as numerous species of sea birds.

♦  The spacious balcony has a table and two chairs plus two loungers.  If you wish for more dining chairs and loungers taken away, just ask housekeeping and they will organise this for you  The sea views is impressive and is over the top of the palm trees planted in the beautiful garden below.  Look a little to the West and you will look at the first of two swimming pools, look slightly to the East and you will see the promenade and in the distance part of Funchal city jutting out into the sea.

Hotel facilities free of charge:

♦  Two huge sea water swimming pools with jacuzzi beds in the water.  The largest of the two pools has a very shallow end that gently goes down into the water with a hand rail.  There is a deeper end and a bridge over the pool.  The entire pool and garden area is surrounded by a glass screen to give privacy from the promenade below and to protect if there is a breeze off the sea.  The sea view is uninterrupted.  The Western end of the grounds have a beautiful cacti and succulents garden with lawn where you can place your sunbeds anywhere you wish and the two pool workers will bring you a sun parasol and place the beds exactly where you want them.

♦  Poolside towels for use on the sun loungers are left in the room and can be exchanged at the poolside at anytime.  Equally, leave the towels in the bath of the room and the chambermaids will give you clean ones.

♦  A games room with table tennis and table football is located off the pool terrace at the far end of the building.  It is free to everyone.

♦  An indoor pool that flows outside into a small hedged area is good fun.  The pool has lots of different currents and whirl pools.  You can just float and be taken around the pool, inside and out in the current. Each morning there is a aqua aerobics class to join in with if desired.  On a higher terraced of the indoor pool area is a Jacuzzi that has lovely hot water and a view onto the gardens.  There are numerous rattan loungers to relax in around the indoor pool also.

♦  Lifts to every level of the hotel.

♦  A large gymnasium with numerous machines.

♦  Owner’s library for the free swapping or use of books left by previous holiday makers.  There is a computer in the room for free use too.

♦  Speak to the owners relations team at any time and they will help you.  They should give you two free bottles of Madeira wine too for enjoyment whilst at the studio apartment.  You can join in with the welcome meeting if you wish and they will tell you what is happening on the island that week.  You can book trips with them also and book hire cars etc.

Hotel facilities that come with different charges:

♦  The spa has extensive treatments to include massages in the garden under the gazebo that overlooks the sea.

♦  You can book breakfast at the poolside restaurant for every day of your stay if you do not want to cook for yourself.  If you book for the entire time it is cheaper than a one off breakfast.

♦  There is a salad bar open by the pool at lunchtime and it is not expensive.  You can select from a very good quality salad bar and sit at the tables by the pool on the decked area any day you please.

♦  The poolside bar serves alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks plus cocktails.

♦  Numerous themed restaurants which you can dine in just once or book a ’round-robin’ package deal to bring the cost down.  You can dine inside or on the decked poolside area outside.

♦  If you like scuba diving, one of the Pestana Hotels in Funchal specialises in diving and you can book to dive with them.

Location:

The Pestana Grand is located in the prestigious West end of Funchal.  It is mainly a modern residential part of the city with funky apartment blocks and some good quality restaurants mixed with cafes and pizza places.  The promenade is beautiful and it is a 6km walk into Funchal but it is a very pleasant walk.  You can take the coastal promenade which undulates more or the top path which has been pedestrianised in part and is mostly flat.  Either route is pleasant and there are restaurants for every taste along the way from traditional cuisine to Indian, Japanese, Chinese Italian and more.  There is a tea house next door to the hotel with a lovely sea view which is well renowned and the Portuguese love afternoon tea even more than the Brits!

You can walk West from the hotel and go through a cave tunnel and come out onto a stone beach and continue on a board walk all the way to a traditional fishing village.  There is a black sand beach on this route which has life guards on attendance.  This is a nice thing to do and the area has fish restaurants and ice cream parlours.

If you are into coastal walking or jogging, the location is perfect from just outside the Pestana Grand!

There is a very good supermarket in the shopping complex just around the corner from the hotel, off the promenade.  If you use your hand luggage case on wheels, you can easily bring water, milk and supplies up to the room from the coastal promenade entrance into the gardens and then us the lift up to the room.  The door from the pool area onto the promenade has a security pad (just use your room key)!

What to do on Madeira:

We have hired a car and toured the entire island before but you can get a bus pass at owner relations and travel everywhere by bus.  The bus service is superb and you can visit each of the famous gardens, reach every walking trails that follow the levadas and visit every corner of the island by bus if you wish.  Equally you can book organised trips at owner relations.  Taxis wait at the end of popular walking trails too just in case you don’t want to catch the bus back to the hotel!

There is so much to see and do in Funchal city itself.  As we personally live in the countryside, we often enjoy a city break mixed with coastal walking but Madeira has something for everyone!

If you want to enjoy a catamaran trip with very few people on the boat and see incredible numbers of dolphins of varying species, we can recommend a superb company.  Not crowded and so relaxing.  The same company have a very fast boat (a rib) that takes you to see all manner of sea creatures. On one trip we saw a huge whale, rare red nosed dolphins and a turtle.

If you want any hints and tips we can advise you.  We have owned the timeshare for a long time and Madeira is like a second home.

Cost:

1,400 GB Pounds for 14 days or €1,675 according to the exchange rate on the day.

Booking conditions:

As it is getting close to departure date, once you have your confirmation of booking document organised with Pestana we would ask for full payment via bank transfer.  We will organise the reservation for you and send on the reservation in your name (changed from ours for those two weeks).  Equally, we will happily give you the reservation team direct telephone number so you can phone them and confirm all is booked and correct if this makes you feel extra secure.

Cost of flights:

When we looked, there are EasyJet flights that fly from the UK to Madeira on a Monday for approximately 250 GB Pounds to include hold luggage. Of course, it depends where you fly from and which airline you fly with.

Please note, the timeshare was bought for arriving and leaving on a Monday, however if there is availability at the hotel, it can be possible to change to a Saturday or Tuesday.

It is possible to use one week or four weeks together, just let us know.
