Here at dealchecker we just can’t get enough of this sunshine! But since we are aware that this is the UK where the weather can flip faster than you can say ‘factor 15’ we’ve got a back up plan for when the rains inevitably set in. It’s called the Pestana Grand in Madeira and it’s the subject of a deal we found over at Voyager Travel this week.
It’s priced from £699 per person which isn’t the cheapest deal we’ve seen to Madeira, but this isn’t just any old offer.
For starters you’re staying in a luxury five-star hotel – the type of luxury hotel with 5,000 square metres of gardens, a 1000-metre heated swimming pool, a stunning outlook over the bay of Ponta da Cruz and a fancy cocktail bar with live music most evenings.
You should check out the Pestana Grand’s Tripadvisor reviews if you won’t take our word for it.
Then there’s your FREE show and meal at a nearby Casino, the Pestana Casino Park Hotel. Shows are on Wednesdays and Saturdays when you can watch a musical extravaganza performed by the Casino’s dance team to the music of classic American musicals and modern hits.
We should of course factor in your destination. Madeira is a gorgeous island about four hours flight from the UK. Madeira along with neighbouring islands in the same archipelago are known as the Islands of eternal Spring – now doesn’t that sound like somewhere you HAVE to go? The island is famed for the lush gardens that bloom in the sub-tropical climate. A holiday in Madeira is more about soaking up the sun surrounded by this stunning fauna than lazing on the beach – since the island is a little lacking in beaches. Instead you can visit Cabo Girão – One of the world’s highest ocean cliffs and the São Vicente volcanic caves.

One final thing to mention – the holiday deal is for peak season dates throughout July and August – making it even better value for money as we all know prices rocket sky high during the school holidays!
