The Pestana Carlton is quite simply a fantastic hotel.
The hotel is a true '5 Star' where you are looked after from the moment you arrive. This is mainly due to the attitude of the staff and I do mean all of the staff. I have stayed at many 5 Star hotels where the staff are very attentive and helpful but at the Carlton it is immediately apparent that this is because they really do want to help you, rather than because they are being paid to do this.
It helps that most of the staff have worked here for many years, as such if you make return trips you will be remembered and although staff are always very professional, polite and formal there is a genuinely warm and friendly undertone.
The location of the Carlton is perfect for Funchal, whether shopping, eating out or lazing in a cafe or sea-front bar. The walk into town is a leisurely 15 minute stroll which provides you with a constantly changing array of floral 'colour' depending upon the time of your visit.
Hotel facilities are absolutely excellent with two pool areas and a selection of options for eating from snacks/meals by the garden pool to full à la cart in the restaurant - the standard is always superb.
Finally, Madeira is undoubtedly one of the friendliest of holiday destinations with a marvelous climate, many exhilarating walks,quite breathtaking scenery and many First Class local restaurants.
I would 100% recommend both The Pestana Carlton and Madeira for a memorable and relaxing holiday, having first stayed at the hotel over 28 years ago and still being a regular return visitor.
