There are plenty of options for accommodation in Madeira depending on your interests, budget and tastes. As the island is hilly and the coast is steep and rocky, most hotels here compensate for the lack of beaches by providing large swimming pools on-site.

About half the size of London, Madeira is easy for travellers to get around. However, if you don’t have a rental car, then Funchal is the most ideal place to stay as almost all buses run from here to other towns.

Many resorts are near to the Lido promenade, which has a series of public swimming pools – one of them is a seawater pool. There is also a great number of restaurants around the area. Nearby, the landscaped gardens often host craft fairs and small variety shows.

Many quintas – old manor houses usually surrounded by charming gardens – have been converted into modern 4-star hotels. These often feature swimming pools and large rooms, and some are equipped with on-site wellness centres, meaning you can pay 4-star prices while enjoying maximum comfort.

Another advantage of staying in Funchal is getting to experience ‘Monte sledges’ (Carros de Cestos), a unique form of transport where two men whisk you down a steep hill in a car made of wicker and wood, braking with their boots. This first-rate white-knuckle ride is certainly not for the faint-hearted!
